The other half of the apple
I want to celebrate the day of love, as they use to call it, sharing with you this fragment of the Androgynous Myth, narrated by the Greek author Plato in the Symposium. I chose it also because it’s the origin of the idea of love as the join of two parts as well as two half of an apple, which is a very romantic image.
“And so, when a person meets the half that is his very own, whatever his orientation, whether it’s to young men or not, then something wonderful happens: the two are struck from their senses by love, by a sense of belonging to one another, and by desire, and they don’t want to be separated from one another, not even for a moment.”
I hope that you could find your half and enjoy the Valentine’s day together!
… Oh! And for those of you who has not recognised it yet, this Valentine girl is wearing a Danny Reinke scarlet dress from the Fall/Winter 2017 collection.
