A person who loves...

Find something to love

Are you tired of negativity? Why is everyone so angry? Stress and pressure in the modern world can be pretty intense.

We're done with it. That was so 2020.

Edmonds.Love has the cure: become a person who loves.

The only trick is deciding what to love. You don't have to choose only one thing to love, thank goodness. When you find something to love you channel empathy and joy. Loving passionately is the most rewarding thing a person can do.

A person who loves

The noun and the verb love attempt to define that indescribable feeling of affection, admiration, curiosity, interest, passion and devotion toward someone or something. The thing is, it can't be defined or described, it must be felt. When you really feel it, it's the most powerful feeling in the world.

A person who loves is a person who is open to the possibility of loving anything. We love so many things in this world, and our list is still growing. There are many things we don't even know about, so our potential to love more is very high.

People have loved other people, places and things for thousands of years and we've developed a vocabulary thanks to Romans and Greeks, who loved. The root word phile comes from the greek verb meaning "to love".

There are lots of "-philes" that have already been defined although most of them seem rather obscure. Our belief is that this vocabulary needs to be extended to cover the vast number of things for people to love.

Each time we find a new "person who loves" we will list it here and probably make designs about it.

Philophile

A Philophile is a person who loves the concept of love, affection, and kindness.

Loving the idea of love opens the door to loving everything. You don't have to love love in order to love other things but why wouldn't you?

Let's take a look at some of the things people who love, really truly love, with an eye toward the things we love most about the Pacific Northwest.
