THE MASH-UP: The key to GIVING LOVE is understanding how THE RECIPIENT SPELLS it.
Here’s the deal: We don’t all receive love the same way? Nor do we interpret Love the same? We have a saying in Jamaica that says, “what is a joke for you, is death for me?” If you want to hear it in a Jamaican accent call “1800- Call PAUL” – inside joke :). Oh wait, this is a public forum – that’s like whispering in a group – my apologies I was raised better – I think. Basically, what it means is that we see things differently.
So how do you spell love? Chose a word that captures love for you and when I ask, “how do you spell LOVE” – spell that word. Here’s my poetic expression of my single word spelling/definition of love:
SPELLING BEEI lost the spelling bee. They asked me to spell it. In their ignorance they had eyes and could read – but could not see. “Miss Gordon, spell ‘love’ please.” And I answered, “G-O-D” – Rie Gordon (c) 2006
