I used to long for a magic button to save the world (in spite of the so called "button pushers" who could destroy it). Now I know that Love is the only magic we need to push all the right buttons. Please see the full "I Love You Buttons" post here. These little 1" buttons are great to give to friends -- or soon-to-be-friends.

THE I LOVE YOU BOOK
The I Love You Book at Blurb.com (self-published). 198 pages, full colour.
In 2002, I began to collect references to the words, “I love you” into a manuscript. I searched science, psychology, the arts, literature, metaphysical knowledge, pop culture, current events — every field I could imagine — for mentions of “I love you.” Back then, I reasoned that Love itself may be intangible (I know better now!), but its strongest declaration can be seen, heard, touched, smelled, and even tasted.
During the seven-year long process of creating the book, I learned that Love is the single biggest threat to The Powers That Be. As Naomi Wolf stated, ”Love freely given between equals is a very recent historical possibility. It is also the enemy of some of the most powerful interests of this society.” For a full preview, please visit The I Love You Book at Blurb.com
