Love And Happiness Revisited

Who ever said that you can't have happiness without having sadness got that idea right. The closer you get to someone, greater is the loss when you are separated, temporarily or permanently. Love is the boat that keeps us from drowning in a sea of despair. The boat of longing. Happiness is Love unmoored. Sadness occurs when Love is lost. "All Is Full Of Love" - so sings The Girl From The North Country, and she got that idea right, too.

A kiss from an angel, a kiss good-bye?
The joy and fear of a new mother-to-be, mixed together in the most intimate fashion possible.
A fallen giant, still loving, still loved.

The singer still sings her songs, the world stops to take note, but only for a second; then it continues on, and on and on and on.

Would you say that it's then better to just steer clear of intimacy with other human beings? I have always felt it's better to go out and love, and sometimes yes you stumble and fall, but you have to keep the faith and not give up in despair or bitterness.
