The rock formations in the picture below are located just outside of Sedona, Arizona. Locals refer to them as "the kissing rocks". Of course, my romantic heart melted into a puddle of mush the first time I heard their nickname. But I also love the symbolism. Like stone, love endures. Life tries to get the better of us. Winds lash and rains pour down, but that very best part of ourselves, our love and regard for others, lasts beyond our lifetime. To me, romance stories are a beautiful reminder of that. They warm my heart and make me smile.
