A Musa, Connecticut USA:

"For Valentine’s Day, this question: What is the future of love?"

To answer this one million dollar question is not easy, but let me try.
As it had been in the past, as it is at present, future of love will be in books, movies,in peoms, songs, and in every imaginary medium that is possible.
Even societies that did not had written language, as my country of birth Somalia used to be, we had legendary love stories orally passed from one generation after the other.
As Miriam articulated loving hearts and compassionate people have help now and chances of falling in love is enhanced by he technology. The internet is God sent to many lonely people who can now search for love from all the corners of the world in thier home by using the millions of internet caffes and chat rooms.

Hiya,Miriam.Well I normally don't agree with you about politics,about on this subject I have to admit that you made it!!!Finally ;).Todays life is exactly like that. I've been thinking over it this week.I have met so many people from a lot of countries.And passing the years my love "stamina" has shortened drastically.But didnt lose intensity though.I was blaming myselft for that. Sometimes even felling guilty and avoiding knowing different people scared of this "feeling" of having another short love.But afterwards I reckon it is the way the world is working right now.You managed to make me "free" my mind of these thoughts.Thank you for that!!!
