"Love is the hardest thing in the world to write about. It's so simple.
You've gotta catch it through details, like the early morning sunlight
hitting the gray tin of the rain spout in front of her house, the
ringing of a telephone that sounds like Beethoven's Pastorale, a letter
scribbled on her office stationary that you carry around in your pocket
because it smells like all the lilacs in Ohio"
