“Happily Ever After”-  A Reality or a “Dream devoutly to be wished?”

When I was a kid I believed that anything & everything was possible, I also believed in the loyal simplicity of everlasting true love, and I still, completely do.  I find that as many people get older they abandon their childlike ideals for normalized cynicism. The nest of prosperity lies in the unwavering belief of infinite possibilities, and many ‘adults’  just don’t believe as fervently anymore. Being that I didn’t just arrive on to this planet yesterday, my optimism is not planted in the naivety of inexperienced disappointment & pain, I merely have chosen to not surrender to those temporary (seemingly VERY real) illusions, because I believe in the power of PRACTICED IMAGINATION and it’s ability to uplift and ALTER ONES REALITY.

But in order for Serene Imagination to realize, faith & loVe must be practiced into place.

So I decided to write a blog about LoVe, ArT & the HuMan ConDition. The
good, the bad and all that is in-between.   I will go through the looking glass and back examining all that is love; root, stem and bloom. We see evidence every second of every day of the existence of true love. It takes the form of all kinds of art, freedom, beauty, callings fulfilled, nature, healthy relationships, etc.

The blog name, LoVs ‘n Mua, means Love’s in me. Moi is me in french and Mua is the phonetic sound of a Kiss, put it together and vualllaa! I believe one of our greatest missions whilst inhabiting this blue rock is to MANIFEST THE LOVE WE ARE MADE OF through the movement of our thoughts, feelings and actions. (The other mission…to laugh so hard you bleed, or cry, crying works. ; ) But before we can give love it has to exist within. Inked by the hand of Shakespeare and said through the breath of Polonius is the quote that sums it all up, “To thine own self be true.” The ancient Greek aphorism, “know thyself,” was written on the Temple of Apollo at Delphi as the foundation for acquiring enlightenment and fostering consciousness. For this reason, amongst many others, growing up in my house, we never idolized celebrity or anything else for that matter, due to the fact that it is through the idolization of objects or people, that we subconsciously diminish the creative power and unlimited beauty inside of ourselves as well as the Universe.

Although I do find technology advancements useful and embrace some levels of modernization, I don’t believe that it goes hand in hand with progression, a word it sometimes dresses as. I am a bit of a neo-traditionalist who believes that the combination of a little bit of old with a little bit of new is the best formula.  A few things from the ‘old days’ in particular that I cherish was the integrity of one-on-one face-time & the value of someones word over the flightiness of a text or fakebook message. The basic standards of decency, class and morality don’t seem to matter anymore. There was also a level of sophistication, chivalry (ladies & gents), loyalty, privacy, innocence, honorability and a ‘Here’s lookin’at you kid!’ corniness, that was not only acceptable but revered as brave, beautiful and honest. It’s not that these things don’t  exist anymore, they’re just not as popular as they deserves to be. I also feel that the words ‘I love you’ were not so commonly used as they are now with everyone. For instance when I watch some talk shows, I notice people saying “I love you’ to everyone. But I’m a firm believer that as quickly as a poorly founded ‘I love you’ is given is as quickly as it will be eventually surrendered.

So the point of this blog is to shake any dirt off of lOve, spread some cheer, &  uplift the human spirit by looking into culture, every form of art, philosophy, the humanitarian heart, language and ideas. It’s through the transmission of real love we find some of the world’s most awe inspiring people, acts, and inventions, creative and otherwise. This is not a dotting your i’s with hearts blog (although a heart dot is welcomed ; )  that ignores reality and swims in the idealism of a make belief la la land. Nor is this a blog about exalting cynicism or supporting any reality that is contrary to what we want, happiness. Rather, this is simply a blog about infinite possibilities & truth; the graceful, poignantly raw, ever so sophisticated truth.

So, ready or not, here I go through the Rabbit Hole searching, dissecting, discovering and restoring True Love.

My hope?

 To pump the sigh, swoon and lift of the heel back into LoVe!

Oh! and where theres LOVE you know they’ll be plentyyyyy of poetrryyy!

 “Love is passion, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love – well, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived. ” -Meet Joe Black-

    A word LOVE – used and abused, hard to explain but much better to feel…if there is enough courage to surrender to it… maybe being in and acknowledging the moment of the truth is LOVE it self…
    Anyhow, thank you for your beautiful blog. 🙂
    Have a sunshine inside out,
    bOJAN

    Really enjoy this piece, LoVs n Mua. Thanks for liking mine. This is true, about our technology these days, ‘dressing as progress’ and is it? To the point maybe of self absorbtion and self validation I think? We artists must fight this! haha. I’m an obsessed reader/interpreter of the Sonnets, so liked your Shakespeare allusions too. I can’t agree more that true love is a pursuit, and even an object, and I might post something philosophical here on this, but I’ve held off for now. I will say “AP” or apropo, for your nice blog, which was a Renaissance way of saying “I concur.” -Matt

    • Magnolia said

      Hi Matthew, really enjoyed reading your thoughts! You are a really great writer, very clear. I agree w/ you too about it being “self-validation” & “self-absorption.” That’s cool too that you are an interpreter of Sonnets, I’m a Shakespeare aficionado. I hope you have a really great Christmas! Will be sure to check out your blog frequently:)

      • Matthew Kenneth Kosak said

        Hi Magnolia, thank you for reading and your kind words! I value them as I believe you are very talented writer and artist, clearly. Yes, the Sonnets are plenty mysterious from a story point of view…there is so much in them! Looking forward to seeing more your excellent works and wishing you a very nice Christmas! 😉
