The Snapshot

Every life has one true love snapshot … she said she had to go before her parents got angry. But as she walked away, she turned and waved.

That was the snapshot. For the rest of his life, whenever he thought of Marguerite, Eddie would see that moment, her waving over her shoulder, her dark hair falling over one eye, and he would feel the same arterial burst of love. – Mitch Albom The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Doesn’t it seem funny that a whole wave of emotions, excitement, anger, and some don’t even have words to describe, all the feeling that comes with being in love can be grasp in just one snapshot. I for one think it’s not just one snapshot. But a combination of snapshots, like a montage of moments with the person you love that gives you that arterial burst of love Mitch Albom was talking about.
