Our choices are many within the bodega of love.

Some seek love as an additive to an ever-growing happiness. Others, as a substitute for its ever-present absence within.

So much so, that there are times when we give our love away, blinded by the possibility of finding it–once and for all, after so many years of seeking.

And it’s not out of lack of love for ourselves.

But your way of loving is something money can’t buy. In the bodega of relationships–romantic and platonic– I beg you, choose wisely.
