I’m participating in Six Sentence Sunday, a cool effort that invites authors to post six sentences from one of their works on Sunday morning. Six Sentence Sunday will then link the post on their site. It’s a slick concept, and I encourage everyone to check it out. This post is six sentences from my essay “The Secret of Love,” which is available in my book Bring Us The Head Of The Velveteen Rabbit.

Love just mystifies the hell out of me. I can certainly recognize it when it wanders by. But love’s like a really slick cell phone; I can see the cool stuff happening, but I don’t have the first idea how it works. I’m absolutely a falling in love kind of guy. But I’m also a falling off the ladder kind of guy, and I understand the inner workings of love no better than I understand the inner workings of gravity.

Please check out some of the other authors linked at Six Sentence Sunday.
