Copyright ® 2019 Greenville Life 4 Greenville Life WINTER 2019 If you look for it, you’ll see love everywhere T he opening scene of the 2003 film “Love Actually” has been blamed for many teary eyes – long before the plot comes around to anything sad. It’s a poigna nt, accurate yet hopeful way to look at the world, and 16 years after the film’s release, we need to hear the still-relevant words more than ever. “Whenever I get gloomy about the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport,” says actor Hugh Grant, as the screen shows disembarking passengers being greeted in the terminal. “General opinion is starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. Seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends … If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.” In this edition of Greenville Life, we bring you the stories of 10 couples: how they met, how they’ve thrived and struggled, how they help each other grow, how they drive each other crazy, how they make each other laugh. We also consider the true meaning and various forms of “love,” from the history of our languages and from Greek philosophy and Biblical texts. Of course, the weeks surrounding Valentine’s Day are a great excuse to focus on love, but love – in all its various forms – is worthy of celebrating year-round. We hope that as you read this edition of Greenville Life, you, too, will see that love really is all around us. Lisa Chappell Publisher
