Nine years ago, my essay “Bound by Love and a ZIP Code,” was published in the Los Angeles TimesL.A. Affairs column.
I regularly read these columns and am always surprised/delighted/amused by the many different ways we search and find, or lose, love.
You may find it surprising that for quite a while I really didn’t think I had a romantic story to tell. In fact, it took me a while to see what was in front of me the whole time — the way my husband and I met and fell in love was pretty extraordinary.
This week, I’m pleased to share the essay with you. If you haven’t read it before, you can click here to read “A boundless love contained in a single ZIP code.” (Note – the digital title varies slightly from the in-print title.)
“Love in its many varieties, expressed in letters and poems from 202 writers worldwide, written to the object or objects of their affection, adoration, romantic passion, esteem and fantasy. Letters and poems to wives, to husbands, to children, to parents, to grandparents, to boyfriends, to girlfriends, to pets, to literary and film idols, and more. This is a book for anyone who loves love.“
Just a reminder – the holidays are coming up fast. This anthology could be the gift for the person in your life who loves love.
