24-L by B e v e r l y

This week at ABC Wednesday L gets centre stage.

L  is for Live, Love, Laugh

This is one of my favourite expressions – one that sums up what we need for a happy life.

We all need love and loving others as ourselves would certainly create a more caring, friendlier world. There is too much hate, racism in the world. Every religion has the golden rule of loving others. No one is better than anyone else. Race, colour, religion are just excuses to encourage hate.

We need to live each day as if it is our last. We need to grasp all that is good about our world and be the best that we can be

And laughter only makes everything better. Worry and stress erode our happiness. We need to laugh and laught often.

So, Live well

Laugh often

and

Love Much!

23-L by Roger

There was this extremely popular book called Love Story, written by Eric Segal. “Love Story became the top-selling work of fiction for all of 1970 in the United States and was translated into more than 20 languages. The novel stayed for 41 weeks in The New York Times Best Seller list, reaching the top spot.”

It was made into a 1970 American film, a romantic drama, written by Segal. “It was produced by Howard G. Minsky and directed by Arthur Hiller and starred Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal, alongside John Marley, Ray Milland, and Tommy Lee Jones in his film debut in a minor role.” Segal had met Harvard students Jones and future US Vice-President Al Gore while Segal was there on sabbatical in 1968.

The “emotional family baggage of the romantic hero… was inspired by a young Al Gore.” But it was… “Jones who inspired the half of the character that was a sensitive stud, a macho athlete with the heart of a poet.”

I’ve never either read the book or seen the movie, which won an Oscar for Francis Lai in the Best Music, Original Score category, and garnered nominations for Minsky (Best Picture), McGraw, Ryan, Markey, Hiller, and Segal (adapted screenplay).

In part, it was the notion that, as Jenny (McGraw) Hsaid in the movie ads, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Even at a young age, I never believed THAT. In fact, the notion I found ridiculous.

Now I do believe, as the Temptations sang, Can’t Nothing Be Love But Love.

To that end, I’d LOVE to see each of your entries for ABC Wednesday. Sometime between the starting time and next week, I will be sure to lovingly visit each and every one.

This week at ABC Wednesday, L gets centre stage.

One of my favourite phrases, that I have hanging in my living room is based on “LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH” – something we all need to embrace.

L is for LOVE – which is illustrated so well in the words of Jesus in Matthew 22:36-40 (NIV):

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

 

We desperately need more love in this divisive world, especially love for our fellow man.

Bertrand Russell reflected on this:

Christ said “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” and when asked “who is thy neighbour? went on to the parable of the Good Samaritan. If you wish to understand this parable as it was understood by his hearers, you should substitute “Germans and Japanese” for Samaritan. I fear my modern day Christians would resent such a substitution, because it would compel them to realize how far they have departed from the teachings of the founder of their religion.

We are each other’s neighbours – regardless of our skin colour, our religion, our sexual orientation. We need to accept and love each other – what a lovely world we could have if only we could do this.

This week at ABC Wednesday, L is the star of the week.

As I continue with my tour of Canada, for Canada150, my focus is on lakes, of which Canada has many. In fact, Canada has more lakes than any other country.

L is for Lake Louise.

Lake Louise was named for Queen Victoria’s daughter Louise and is a must see when visiting Banff. It was one our stops when we visited Banff on our honeymoon. It was a beautiful spot.

L is also for the Great Lakes, 5 large, beautiful lakes Canada shares with the United States.

Can you name them, identify them on a map?  It takes me a few minutes to remember!

I lived near Lake Ontario much of my early years and my Mother did until she passed away. I have been to each of the Great Lakes and they all have much to offer for visitors.
