Where reality and dreams mingle
can anyone tell which is which?
- Who would want to? -
Which is more real
the night or day?
its cool shadow?
the star-filled sky?
Rolf A. F. Witzsche
It has been said that 'sober' people
don't care about romance. Indeed, some of the most
serious authors who have written books upon books, have
never used the words "romance" or "romantic."
Still, they wrote about love, even with the word Love
capitalized. Should fiction writers, therefore, or for
that matter fiction readers, shun romance novels?
It has been said a long time ago that love has its root in the joy of being touched by the beauty of another. Thus, love is rooted in our humanity. Here a world unfolds that sometimes supersedes what is called the rational world, but can anyone tell which is the most real? Often love unfolds in times of great trials when a person tends to be more honest with itself about reality. And when the world turns dark and all the artificial lights of civilization go out in a holocaust, the light of love will remain and grow ever brighter. But why shouldn't it be a light above the sun even now?

of the invisible shapes that shape us
in the wide landscape of love
