Time of Love

by Editor Miro Susta
Edited and published by Yvette Depaepe, the 19th of December 2022


Christmas is behind the door...
Christmas is the time of love, the time which will bring out peace, freedom and beauty of love.
That why this photo article is dedicated to love.


'Sun for You' by Deniz Ener


The most important thing in life is unconditional love.
Love of oneself, of people, of nature, of the world, of the universe, of life, of God.


'Sealed with a kiss' by Edith Hoffman


Everything else will follow when you accept love as your highest value.
Love is sacrifice, strength, hope, forgiveness, love is the meaning of everything and without it nothing makes sense.
But who knows what real love is?


'love-story' by Bogomolov Denis


Who knows the true meaning of a much talked about and sometimes it seems even devalued word? It is used by everyone, publicly, kitschy, loudly and daily, and that does not mean that they really love. Love of parents and children, love of lovers, love of siblings, love of nature.


'laundry' by asit


You can love a friend, a mother, a son, or nature around you. Different shades, different depths, different expressions. But the real thing that makes love a love should always be the same. What does one really have to experience and undergo to be able to say: this is love?


'Brothers for Life' by Jeffrey C. Sink


The love for nature : we see it, hear it, feel it every day. We also know how much we are hurting nature, from climate change to the killing of the last endangered species to the destruction of forests and woodlands. Is it our true love?


'Siesta' by Istvan Lichner

'Love is in the air' by Annemieke


Love is the only thing we can possess, always keep with us, and which we will also be able to take with us one day.
Without love for oneself, for other people, for nature, for the universe and for the God, the human being is cold, isolated and even inhuman.

If you cannot love, it is because you are resisting love.
Love cannot be earned, deserved, bought, begged or forced.

Lack of love creates an inner hunger - hungry families pass on the message of hunger to their children.

Love this world with all that belongs to it, love the sun and the rain and rejoice when the wind ruffles your hair and love the summer world with all that goes with it, love the trees and the flowers and the fountains and the streams.


'Autumn Idyll' by Leicher Oliver


Live in love, with humility and a smile.
