Just Pinned to City, Creatives, Cherieby: The Secrets We Kept is a much-anticipated debut novel from Lara Prescott, mostly because Knopf paid $2 million at auction in order to acquire the rights to publish the novel. It was also selected as Reese Witherspoon’s September 2019 book club pick. Post is from The Bibliofile. Share your thoughts at The Secrets We Kept!

no.2 Love

I was so close to simply shutting closed the screen of my device, calling it a night, giving up. 

But for … the love of the writer in me. 

My goodness! How many times have I done that? Used love as a cop-out that explains away an irrational decision. Or a better question, how many times have you done that?

*My goodness! How many times have I done that? Used love as a cop-out that explains away an irrational decision. Or a better question, how many times have you done that?* Panics!

“Love is just a feeling”

That girl, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

I love you so it’s okay.

I love that so I deserve to have it.

But does anyone really understand the sentiment it describes; philosophers, writers, musicians, psychologists have all tried to find some meaning? And we’ll let you decide for yourselves but we think what they serve a job in doing is arguing amongst themselves, confirming perhaps that what unites us – no not love – is our universal ability to agree to disagree on, well everything.

From Christian doctrines it is that Love is deeply cultivated in character; 

Love is patient

Love is kind

It does not envy

It does not boast

From Shakespeare, it is that Love is attraction, and is nearly always a winding suspenseful story.

All this to say, we started talking here on the Album interludes and dialogue that set apart Lauryn Hill’s solo debut album; The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and we wound up here.

At love.

In love.
