Reflection on Romance
This past month, I’ve had an opportunity to reflect on the importance of steadfast love and loyalty to living healthfully.
A study published in April in the journal Heart found that people who were lonely or socially isolated had a 29 percent greater risk of developing heart disease and an even greater risk of stroke. Dr. Dean Ornish foreshadowed that conclusion through his work with emotional heart disease as he discussed in the anti-aging documentary, “Reverse Aging Now.” Carolisa Pomerantz and I attended a black tie wedding on a Malibu mountaintop, honored guests where we felt welcomed. Both of us hoped that the bride and groom would find the joy and loyalty that has bound the two of us together for more than 21 years. We saw a bond that could flourish, and hope it does. We watched two people get married with their lives in front of them, and, with work, their destinies intertwined.
Within a couple of weeks, we saw a mutual friend wrestle with the imperatives of his heart. He’s a middle-aged immigrant, whose friends back home would love to fix him up with a wife, yet he has his heart set on a pretty, American woman who has dug into his soul. Yet, she is not as responsive as he’d like her to be about his affection. He’s a great guy, and one of the most positive people we know despite his afflictions.
At times like this, I consider myself lucky to have the love of a good woman, to whom I respond whole heartedly.
