love, schmove.

good morning. at this wee hour, i have here a short but immensely moving passage that i read in reader's digest. do take time to read it. it made me smile.

When asked, "Do you think all any of us really want, deep down, is to be loved?" American humourist Garrison Keillor responded:

"No, we want to be rich, to be admired, to eat like a horse and be skinny as a snake. To have small children ask for our autographs. To sing Irving Berlin and Gershwin and Porter at the Oak Room and be described in the Times as 'luminous.'

But in the absence of all that, it's enough to be loved."
