Love After Love: Stages of Loving
Paula Payne Hardin draws on the wisdom of writers, poets, and philosophers throughout time, and explores the terrain of love as a photographer might - in close-ups, long-shots, bright light, and near darkness. After reflecting on what love really is, on the process of becoming ready for love, and the quest for love, Hardin takes a close look at the passage from early love, with its passion and newness, into mature love, with its lessons and wisdom. Finally she explores love's inevitable woundings, and shows how to use the creative power of love in one's work. Throughout this remarkable book, Hardin emphasizes the importance of acknowledging and overcoming the "shadow" sides of love, including dependency, control, and blame.
