Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue
A blue book.
Some stories might seem quite familiar or old to you, others new.
Some of them I wrote a while ago, others just recently.
But on a more abstract level: The history of love is long and old. People have loved each other over the past centuries and they will continue to discover love. So love stories are old. But we are new souls and the connection the universe or destiny has pushed us in, has not existed before, so a love story might be old, but this love story is new.
If we take into consideration what the Indians once said “We don’t own the earth, we just borrowed it from our children.”, we might well apply that to love, and every love story can be regarded as borrowed from the universe, as one day we might have to give it back.
Whether it be old, new, borrowed or owned, this story is not just another love story.
It is a story about love.
