The Crimson Star Alenquer’s blood red color embraces the source of blood…the heart. Feelings. Compassion. Empathy. And perhaps most importantly…what the human heart represents…Love. That feeling when you know your partner truly loves you…will do anything for you. Then you decide to build a life together and everything looks better, tastes better, feels better. Life itself takes on a whole new glow…the crimson glow of love. Late night phone calls until 4 am kind of glow.

Thinking about this type of love makes one cry for joy and smile, like the feeling you get watching Whitney Houston sing the national anthem. Did you know love wasn’t always like this? Legend has it that back in the 13th century or so there were, up until that point, only arranged marriages in human societies around the world. Then, in the 13th century, the troubadours discovered “amore”–romantic love of the heart, the crimson kind. A troubadour was a composer and performer of Old Occitan lyric poetry during the High Middle Ages (1100–1350). Sounds romantic, don’t it? These traveling storyteller/artists proclaimed love’s glory and some were even imprisoned and tortured for saying so.

After a while though their stories of crimson love took hold and now today, modern crimson love reigns although there are a few pockets left of arranged marriages. So whether it’s Valentine’s Day or not, go for it. It makes the earth move under your feet as Carol King sang. Love is all you need, so sang the Fab Four. But you know they are right, don’t you?

And let’s let Dylan, the master songwriter weigh in on love…how about this line from Love Minus Zero (No Limit)… “My love winks, she does not bother…she knows too much to argue or to judge.” I’ve always loved that line because for me, arguing and judging ruin the whole thing, don’t they? Yes, Bob, love has no limit! Red, hot, crimson love–the kind this discus represents–ruby red lipstick lusty love. That’s what I’m talking about. The kind that makes you stay up at night…thinking…hoping.longing. The kind that makes you want to run forty miles just to see her! The crimson kind, with a lethal dose of lust, and caring.
