As George Burns once said, “Love is a lot like a backache: it doesn’t show up on X-rays, but you know it’s there.” Indeed, love is the most mysterious of human emotions that can be shown and felt in many different ways. But sometimes, if you catch the right moment, you may get the feeling that you’ve managed to get closer to the very essence of being in love.
