Some people know me as OrangeBlossomer because that's me on Twitter. This blog is a random collection of daily musings about life and stuff I love, such as journalism, dog (sadly my dog died in 2010 so probably no more), women, love and lack of love, boobs (only seldom but it does get me extra online traffic), taichi (I practise) and spirituality (should practise more). I have a day job as a jetsetting publishing foreign rights manager but I am also an NCTJ-qualified journalist and a writer/columnist at heart. Writing is my opium.

Haiku on real love

Browsing through a book called Haiku for the SIngle Girl (Penguin), which I found on a colleague's desk, I came across a verse that made me smile. 

"He makes me happy. 
If he also makes me sad, 
Then I'll know it's love."

My colleague snorted and thought this was meant to be cynical, I disagree. If you have ever been in love – really in love – you know the above is true. 

Sadness is an intrinsic part of love, grown-up love. 

Just an idle random lunch-time thought.
