    I love that feeling. Oh, if only it were as sustainable as nuclear power. Thanks for writing, and reminding a sometime ‘in love with everything’ girl that moments of the sublime are enough.

    Hello from a fellow WVU faculty who found this piece quite randomly! I especially liked the addition of the last paragraph.

    What a wonderful piece–makes me feel less alone about how I felt in my twenties–also made me laugh!

    No matter what we do, in our twenties we all feel like we’re missing out on something wonderful, don’t we?

    Thank you so much for a great piece. I am reminded of my brother who was also in the Navy and served on the air craft carrier, USS Franklin Roosevelt. He so pursued love in every port but came home to his high school sweetheart who remained forever the love of his life.

    This is beautifully written and I love the subject matter. You can’t get too much love.

    I’m tardy to the party, here. Not sure if you’ll even see this, Kent…but I love every single thing about this. And since it’s 2020 now, I’m going to comment with a youtube link to a song. 🙂
