Sorrento, Italy IV, Italian Landscape Painting


 

Sorrento, Italy IV

 

 

Valentine's Day is around the corner and "love" seems to be on everyone's mind at this time of the year.  At the risk of sounding rather corny, I must ask this question - what is love?  We can feel it but we don't quite grasp what it is.  We embrace and celebrate it but we also get angered or tormented by it.

It is such a mysterious emotion most of us know it is too difficult to answer the question, and would rather leave the job up to more capable individuals such as philosophers, poets and songwriters.  The funny thing is, we love to disagree or even criticise if we don't hear them say what we believe.  Does this mean we know what it is?  I'm getting confused... it is indeed mysterious.

"Any time not spent on love is wasted."

"Love is when you don't have to be with another person to touch their heart."

- Torquato Tasso, an Italian poet born in Sorrento

(Piazza Tasso, in this painting, is named after Torquato Tasso, Sorrento's native son.)
