On January 23, 2024, a documentary film titled “A Case for Love” was shown in movie theaters for one day only. For more information about the film, here is a link to the trailer:


I saw it, and realized that I am the choir to whom this film preaches.

I saw it, and questioned why it was shown for only one day.

I saw it, and wondered if others who saw it would see the good it does.

Did you see it?

Probably not.

Well, it just asks, “What is love?” and people give some answers.

It’s call to action is to spend a small portion of each of your next 30 days doing something for the sake of love.

NOTE: This film was made possible by people affiliated with the Episcopal church, but it did not proselytize. I am happy to have supported it and would like to know more about it…beyond the trailer, beyond the website, beyond the beyond…to the real reasons for the making of this film and the hopes of the makers about what it could accomplish.

Maybe this was the first film ever made as a result of unconditional love. It asks nothing but to be watched…and loved simply for what it is…a film about why love is good and how it is defined in its constant flow, change, morphing, use, misuse, energy, spirals, flutters, glimmers, and flights.
