I went to to Tuscany in the summer. One day, I passed by this lovely bookshop that’s situated in an alley parallel to the Duomo. There was a book by Virgil. I opened it and thought I wasn’t ready for it. But skipping through its pages reminded me of words from the famous poet that one of my dearest friends shared to me many years ago.

“Omnia vincit Amor, et nos cedamus amori.”

Which roughly translates to,

“Love conquers all things; so we too, shall yield to love.”

That weekend, I saw nothing but that. Love conquering all, distance, circumstance and time. People coming from all over the world, to celebrate love and to give love – friends, family, lovers, I’ve never been so happy to be in the company of such wonderful strangers.
