Events are rare. They retroactively create their own cause.

If we see love as an event; the fall, the ground breaking moment, are we from the start describing love through the language of metaphor? Here we enter a fog of slippery language. An ongoing battle between desire and doubt, where the food never spoils, and the flowers do not wither.

In this state, perhaps the only way we can look at love, is to avoid looking directly at it. Like Perseus using the brightly shined shield to defeat Medusa, as a result, looking at the object without becoming blind.

This issue of LOVE asks you to succumb to the spill, the sandalwood fragrance and glazed cherries.
