Love Smells Just Fine

Let’s face it, love does stink at times and I mean stink! It can tear you apart, make you feel like nothing, and make you act without logic.  But at other times, the times that make it all worth it, love can smell just fine, great even!  Love can make you smile, sing, dance, and maybe skip.  All you need is love, they say.  But no one likes to read about the happy times.  We want the juicy bits, the tragic bits and the naughty bits!

This month, I read from Frank Sinatra’s, “The Way You Wear Your Hat”.  Frank and Ava Gardner had one of the most dynamic relationships in history.  She had the ability to destroy Sinatra, a man who sang with love in his voice.  They fought hard and they loved hard.  Gardner is quoted as saying, “It was always great in bed, but the quarreling started on the way to the bidet.”  Their fights were mostly based on jealously.  As two very popular and attractive people, that is understandable.  Their fights were epic and escalated to throwing TV sets, jewelry, and pianos out the window.  PIANOS!  That must have been some jealous rage to pick up a piano and chuck it out the window.

In the end, all they were left with were broken hearts that were full of love for each other.  The author asks Sinatra, “How do you get over a broken heart?” He answers, “You don’t.  I think being jilted is one of life’s most painful experiences.  It takes a long time to heal a broken heart.  It’s happened to all of us and never gets any easier.  I understand, however, that playing one of my albums can help.”
