7. You're right ...
... about the interesting "takes" on a topic, which is always what makes the photo contests so interesting (in addition, of course, to the photos themselves).

It is always fascinating to see one topic, usually a word or two, interpreted in as many different ways as there are individual entries.

3. started to pick lonely heart but it is sad and your heart breaks
for this guy and I wish him to move on -- although I sat at the foot of a grave and drank o'douls and talk with a physical person who happened to be there when I went to the grave site - two hours later we left - I liked the joy the older couple showed after all the years - that is hard to have and do - although they could be newlyweds who moved on from where lonely heart was

10. I chose "Still Crazy After All These Years:.....
To me that says a lot about the meaning of love. It may change as time passes but it doesn't leave and it always brings joy. The couple in the picture is joyful and hopeful. They have stood the test of time and they are celebrating. Time doesn't destroy love. It merely seasons it like fine wine. It is as heady and intoxicating as ever whether you are together for one year or fifty. My husband and I are thirty five going on thirty six and I love him more than ever. K&R

31. My pick is in the lead!
Paul Simon meant something different, this is better. So young and fresh in its warmth. Like these mutually tunnel visioned two, a keeper.

33. Lonely hearts. Communing with your ghostly family members
Shows that love goes beyond the grave and beyond death of the physical body.
