Love is....

the reason weíre here on earth and here on RUS.



Love Is...
by Kim Casali, drawn by Bill Asprey

now available to be viewed weekly changed on the bottom right of the portal... I have been drawn by this since i was a teenager.. i collected them everyday from the newspaper comic ad. I remember when they stopped it and we went and had to protest with signatures to have them back on the pages.. It meant alot to me.. specially when you were a hopeless romantic.. now at this age.. I am glad that it is still around and would love to share to those that arent familiar.

hope you like it as much as i do.


here are some bio:

A heart-warming panel that explores the characteristics of love. Readers enjoy this wildly popular comic because of its innocence and simplicity. Great for classifieds. Also available in Spanish

Kim Casali created "Love Is..." back in the late 1960s when she drew the little pictures as love notes for her husband-to-be, Roberto. Her illustrations were then revealed to the rest of the world when they were first syndicated in 1970. Since his mother's death in June 1997, Stefano Casali has maintained his mother's legacy of the beloved comic panel.

Born in Wimbledon near London, Casali has spent most of his life in the U.K. After graduation from university, he began a full-time job at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising in London where he worked on Gillette, Hewlett-Packard and Samsung. Three years later, he went from the sublime at Saatchis to the silly while working on the McDonald's account at Leo Burnett in London.

After the death of his mother, he joined Minikim (named after his mother) and assumed full control of "Love Is..." while maintaining his advertising job in tandem. Since September 1999, he has been dedicated to the feature full-time, working with artist Bill Asprey, who continues to draw the charming little cartoons.

Born in India, and after traveling the world, Bill Asprey established himself as an artist and cartoonist in London. His work has been published in all the major UK newspapers and magazines, including Punch and Mr. Hugh Hefner's Playboy Publications Inc. In collaboration with journalist Brian Lee, Bill Asprey created the cartoon strip "The Big Friendly Giant," based on Roald Dahl's best selling book. Bill also designed an acclaimed wedding souvenir to commemorate the marriage of The Prince of Wales to Princess Diana and he is the founder/creator of Cartoon World the Internet organization that promotes cartoon art and helps aspiring cartoonists, worldwide.

Working with Kim, Bill created a special "Love is..." color strip, which ran in the UK's Mail on Sunday every weekend. They also worked together on merchandising designs for numerous "Love is..." licensees, worldwide. It was a unique professional relationship, which lasted until Kim's death and continues with her son Stefano Casali. Bill has now been drawing and writing the daily black-and-white syndicated panels for an unbroken 32 years.

Casali said, "It was a great change going from working in big advertising companies to working for myself in a considerably smaller operation, but I would not want to return to the former for all the tea in China."

Today "Love Is..." is a favorite for millions of loyal readers around the world

same here bro scotty.. i love reading them

i think it will tend to bring peace and tranquility if people view some of the simplicity of life's essences that may be portrayed by this loving comic. It makes you think at times when the heart is negatively or postively at rage..its should calm something down when taken a glance hmmm?? i dont know

This is love fulfilling itself...

Quote:
 
Then said Almitra, "Speak to us of Love."

And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them.

And with a great voice he said:

When love beckons to you follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep.

And when his wings enfold you yield to him,

Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

And when he speaks to you believe in him,

Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.

Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,

So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.

He threshes you to make you naked.

He sifts you to free you from your husks.

He grinds you to whiteness.

He kneads you until you are pliant;

And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,

Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,

Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;

For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, I am in the heart of God."

And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;

To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

Kahlil Gibran

thanks..

I shouldn't have gotten involved in this topic. I don't like it lol..

But I do love the ones I love.. Ready to risk and sacrifice anything even my own life.

Making the ones I love happy is one of the best feelings ever.

Love is a feeling.

Some of us feel and express them differently. Not all possess the feeling the same way.

I do not want to talk about love no mo.

*** So many kinds of love... ***

If this doesnt fit here, move it to my poem thread pls :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Look at the beautiful sky...
Why waste life & shut your eyes? ...
What can compare to the warmth of the sun? ...
Feel the gentle breeze caressing your body...
Donít live your life always with caution...
It would be a shame to do so for your life would never be blissfully...

For me i rather live right in the present...
Not worry about the past; future; but live for the moment...
What brings you peace & joy? ...
Dwell on this question & think what you enjoy...
Me it is escaping in art; or being beside the ocean or a lake...
Pencil or paint in the hand; or my fishing rod i take...

Watching the waves that come & go and never end...
Observing the sun's reflection on the water...
Twinkling & resembling like sparkling diamonds...
Sitting in the middle of a garden...
Being in awe of all the nature & the beautiful flowers...
It brings me such peace & harmony...
Tranquility & simplicity...
Thatís my goal in life i want to be...

Give gratitude; have awareness with tremendous appreciation...
We should live life with, love with such passion...
