MEANING BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME
I chose Love Invents Us as the name of this blog for a few reasons. The first is that I’m a big book person and so I borrowed the title from a book written by Amy Bloom. The title of that book stuck with me long after the story had faded and years before I started this blog, because I am intrigued by the creative nature of love. I think that in many ways, love DOES invent us, in ways both literal and figurative. Love creates something that wasn’t there before and the fact of that inspires me.
Have you ever seen Hedwig and the Angry Inch? Although no one I know enjoyed this movie nearly as much as I did, I think it is ALL about the idea of creative/inventive love. Here is a clip that says it all.
