Shelves: female , poetic-essay , years Its kind of cliche to say that you dont choose the people you love. But Ive been thinking about this recently, maybe because Maggie Nelson starts off the book with this point, that she didnt choose to fall in love with blue yes the color.

I started thinking whether I loved my parents and of course I do. Knowledge becomes internalized. Through it, the people we love live inside of us, and it is no longer a question of choice.

This is a simple story, but it spooks me, insofar as it reminds me that the eye is simply a recorder, with or without our will. Perhaps the same could be said of the heart. Do not be overly troubled by this fact. But I wonder if all the choices have crippled our ability to love, if indeed to love is to be surrounded by choicelessness, by a color even, to be bathed in it without choice but only acceptance of the dark along with the light shades. For instance, she talks about her friend who was recovering from an accident that left her disabled: She says, if anyone knows this pain besides me, it is you and J, her lover.

This is generous, for to be close to her pain has always felt like a privilege to me, even though pain could be defined as that which we typically aim to avoid. Perhaps this is because she remains so generous within.

Blues by Maria Popova Nelson begins with the elemental consideration of what it means to fall in love with a color: A voluntary delusion, you might say. That each blue object could be a kind of burning bush, a secret code meant for a single agent, an X on a map too diffuse ever to be unfolded in entirety but that contains the knowable universe.
