Yo en el amor soy un idiota… (I’m a Fool in Love)

The Love You Make

Practice Love Often

I know some of you have warned me against this (i.e. leaving myself so wide open). I don’t know any other way exist. I either do something — or I don’t. Simple as that. I don’t do anything half-assed. (Call me full-assed… ha!) Sometimes, this philosophy works against me.  Okay…  A LOT of times it works against me. Continue reading
