The Head and the Heart

Monday, June 24, 2013


Scientists can show X-rays of broken bones and CT scans of people's brains after years of drug use. They can even show us how lungs change from a stoney grey to the charcoal black of a chain smoker and what livers look like after years of filtering an addict's alcohol consumption.

But what about the heart? What if there was a machine that showed us the results of mourning the loss of our family members, pets, lovers and broken dreams? Would it help?

I think that's why we're all so fascinated with love. It's one of the only things that can be felt, but not measured.

  1. i read this post a few times, because it fascinates me. that probably is the reason why love is such a special thing.. we can never know how much exactly we've loved.


Thank you for commenting on Field Notes! I read (and adore) every single one of them. I'd love to hear what you have to say!
