have you ever wondered what love is? and why sometimes it seems like an overwhelming happiness, easy and crystal clear or gets heavy, dark and painful?… what is that combination of elements that moves the blood to circulate faster, makes people go to wars, compose symphonies, travel long distances, die in duels, grow flowers, knit, cook, steal, dance?… and was aviation invented so that somebody would use it to write “love you” in the sky?..

for science love seems to be clear. chemical formula for love is publicly available for googling:

“C8H11NO2+C10H12N2O+C43H66N12O12S2 dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin. It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity”.

I hope that at some point we will not start taking love in the form of a tablet, pill or vaccine…


whatever is coded with the thread of those letters… I want to believe that it includes affection and passion, respect and commitment, kindness and honesty, romance and compassion, support and guidance, sacrifices and second chances… each element dosed individually and spiced by it's own personalities.

and on very very top of it… there is some secret, some small miracle or sparkle that will never be completely understood, but is essential for everything to fall into time and space.

I wish you love with sparkles, for Valentine’s and any day!..
