In fact, I chose Ingrid Bergman to demonstrate love exists:

From the Offical Ingrid Bergman web site:

"In 1949, Ingrid wrote a fan letter to Italian director Roberto Rossellini, expressing her desire to work in one of his films. He responded by writing a part for her in his 1949 film "Stromboli." During the production of this film, Ingrid and Rossellini began an affair that would change her previous wholesome image forever and cause her to lose many fans in America. Ingrid was still married to Petter Lindstrom at the time, although their marriage had not been happy for many years. Rossellini was still married to another woman as well, although they were separated. Ingrid became pregnant, and she and Rossellini sought divorces from their respective spouses so they could marry each other. Ingrid gave birth to a son, Roberto, before the couple were married in 1950. Moralists and fans in America expressed outrage at this seeming downfall of their former idol and denounced her as immoral. Although her marriage had been unhappy for quite some time, the public had only seen Ingrid's saintly image before, and balked at the revelation of her affair. United States Senator Edwin C. Johnson of Colorado even criticized Ingrid, condemning her publicly as "a powerful influence for evil."

Ingrid lived in Italy with Rossellini, away from America's outrage, and made five movies with him between 1950 and 1955. Among these films was "Europa '51" in 1952, which was released the same year she bore twin daughters, Isabella, who later became a famous model and actress, and Isotta. Ingrid did not work with any filmmakers besides her husband until 1956, when she made the film "Elena et les hommes" with French director Jean Renoir. This film began to resurrect her career in the eyes of international audiences, although she had enjoyed success in Italy with her Rossellini films."


The Senator may not agree, but Sounds like love to me? (well, one manifestation of love, you know me, always thinking too much!)

On emergence: read the opening paragraphs of Tolkien's Simarillion.

Bergman would come back with Anastasia and all would be forgiven. She would leave on Golda proving that she was not simply one of the most desirable woman of an age, but a marvelous actress.

Then there is the terrible tale of Cecile Chaminade who kicked the door in for women musicians only to be buried by the musical academics and closet misogynists. There is love but there is also selfish cruelty and when the latter taps a sensitive network (an amplifier), the directed effects of that feedback can be more brutal than any weapon ever devised. To love is to act because love as a thing, as an object, is not only silly, it is witless and dissipative. Love as verb is sublime and efficacious.

I believe in love because I believe in you.

This is a lot to process. Len, Yes, I agree on your statements about emergence, and about love. Psb, this is really most amazing. Agnes, I am sorry I can not do all those boxes around quotes , but want you to know I listened to all your you tube links. And last , but certainly not least, Grandpa Larry, you are like the beloved Scarecrow to me. I have a special femisapien link for your headfile on she-shim, not exactly PC but posted here for your entertainment:

Is that a clue? Does 'shim' enjoy a sip or two now and then....or perhaps an occasional pint of Guinness?
