What Is Love? Free Modern Block Event - Quilt Layouts!

As Sarah Faith Gottesdiener says in The Moon Book, “What do you call a lover that you keep chasing after, knowing even with their reciprocity, you’ll never reach their essence, never quite touch, and yet they also live inside of you, always? I call this the moon. Others call this love.” See more by Ann
