A few ‘I love you’s

Dear,

unfortunately I can not see the videos. It says they are not available in Germany, probably some legal issue.

Now we are below twenty days :) this is good.

I recently read a passage about Rousseau and the way he discussed the concept of love, saying that the language in general is not appropriate to express the power of the emotion. With all its intensity and complexity it is not possible to transfer it via the expression “I love you.” In a letter to d’Alembert 1758 Rousseau said:

“Wenn ich die furchtbare Leidenschaft der Liebe richtig begreife, ihre Aufregungen, ihre Abwege, ihr Herzklopfen, ihren Taumel, ihre Flammenzeichen, ihr noch ausdrucksstärkeres Schweigen, ihre unaussprechlichen vor Schüchternheit geradezu verwegenen Blicke, die ihre Wünsche durch Furcht anzeigen, dann scheint mir angesichts einer derart heftigen Sprache, dass eine liebende Frau ihrem Liebhaber, der ihr nur ein einziges Mal “Ich liebe dich” sagte, empört antworten sollte: “Sie lieben mich nicht mehr”, um ihn ihr Lebtag nicht wiederzusehen.”

Well, I disagreee :) I am saying “I love you, I love you, I love you…” Maybe saying it three times can make up with the lack of complexity that Rousseau is missing in that expression. (But hugging you is something where there is no word, kissing you is without words too… Everything is basically without words, everything what is so wonderful about you can not be tracked down into words.)

But I do send you another: “I love you” anyway.

Kiss
