It occurred to me (and I'm sure lots of other people have noticed) that all through literature and music are paeans to young love; love as experienced for the first time and love as experienced in youth, but almost nothing about what it feels like to be in love when you are older; what love feels like after you've been together for 30 years.
I realize of course, that for the most part it's not as intense or as all-consuming as young love, but it seems to me to be deeper and broader. I guess it's not as song or poem worthy as young love.
It's a shame, though, and someone should do something about it. I believe I will.
