something to think about.


On March 9th last year, my friend, Cara, sent me a message with the subject line "something to think about." Here is what she wrote:

"I watched the most incredible Argentine film last night. It was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time and it gave me a lot to think about but there was one point in particular that it brought to light that blew me away.

You see in Spanish, if you were to say "I fear" you would say "Temo".

And if you wanted to say "I love you" you would say "Te amo."

One letter difference.

Add an "a" to "temo" and you have "te amo".

Now that can be interpreted a variety of ways I suppose but here's my take: I'm thinking that in moments of fear and self doubt, we have to remember that we're just one letter away from love.

And that, my friend, is what they call "un consuelo" (a consolation)."

It definitely made me think and it's something I'd like to keep in mind.
