Where there is love, there is romance – and where there is romance there are flowers. So overall flowers and romance make the world go round.
I like to think that flowers and romance make the world go round. Can you imagine what life would be like if we didn’t have either of those two things? A world without flowers and romance – it would be a doomsday apocalyptic. It really would be.
If you haven’t noticed, I got flowers and romance on the mind. Partly cause my lovely husband surprise me recently with these gorgeous flowers. What was the reason – there was no real reason for our anniversary is months and months away and we have nothing to celebrate. He just brought me flowers out of thoughtfulness. How very sweet.
And another reason is, I recently watched the film, ‘Equilibrium ‘. Oh my god why did I watch this? The basis of the film is that it set in a post-apocalyptic future where it’s illegal to show emotions. Human injects themselves to stop showing emotions. They also outlawed any art, literature and music. The government would burn or destroy anything that shows emotions – i.e.: something like Mona Lisa smile.
I know what you’re thinking, why the hell would I watch something so dark? If I have to confess – it was to see Batman – I mean Christian Bale. There I said it. Anyway, after seeing this I was a mess. To be honest I was a mess even the first 10 minutes of the film.
Taking a quote from Ewan McGregor, Moulin Rouge; ‘Love. Above all things, I believe in love. Love is like oxygen. Love is a many splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love.’ Now that a cheerful film and doesn’t leave me a sobbing rattling mess.
Anyway getting back to flowers and romance, I kind of hope you know where I’m going with this. Yes, I like to think flowers and romance make the world go round.
It the act of thoughtfulness and showing compassion for another person. We give flowers to anyone – whether they ill or not. We give flowers to someone we care or love. Why flowers – and not chocolates or perhaps wine and dining?
I like to think flowers are not only pretty to look at – but it does add colours and a vibrancy that often lack in our lives. Flowers make a room so much brighter and just have that finishes touch that often other home décor lack.
So yes, I’m the Ewan McGregor Moulin Rouge character – not the Christian Bale character. Drowning myself with flowers and romance. I will be the crazy woman who will be shouting from a mountaintop, I love you all. I will leave petal confetti wherever I go. I will be shooting imaginary cupid heart at you.
Ok, I’m not the extreme. But honestly, I’m feeling loved and honestly it the best feeling in the world. So come to join me and have flowers and romance in your life.
