(*) The Slough of Despond

The Slough of Despond - I've slipped to a 4 out of 10.

Hang on... a trigger (of sorts...) I've been doing a bit of home-based 'research' onto an old 'christian' theme from a few years ago (well, 'christian' as when I last explored the concept, but not presently in that context - clear as mud? lol).
The Four Different Types of 'Love'
[i] Family Affection (Gk. 'storge')
[ii] Friendship (Gk. 'philea') eg. 'Philadelphia' = City of Friendship
[iii] Unconditional Acceptance / Charity (Gk. 'agape')
[iv] Lust (Gk. 'eros') ie. 'erotica'
Having deliciously experienced all four of these different types of 'love' in my lifetime so far, all in varying expressions of depth, and realising that all four - at times - overlap, I'm just devestated that #3 is not humanly possible - even after experiencing it personally for 7 years.

Thanks for coming by today. I'd play your word games, but I'm not supposed to be blogging right now. Shhh. Don't tell anyone. This is babysitter time. Gotta go.
