The balcony scene. What I see missing today is the mating dance. Glad to see Woody coming through. I want the young directors of tomorrow to not forget to include the spark that feeds us all. I could be wrong about this, but I think sex and commitment parted ways when the birth control pill came along.
Instant gratification has become the norm in this fast-food, bed-in-a-bag, pre-prepped, pre-washed world we live in and that extends to relationships. Foodies still appreciate great ingredients, sommeliers still appreciate great grapes and lovers still appreciate great romance.

They both have their place, but only one flows from courtship and romance. Hopefully that will never be dead. Hooray for that. In one of the adult writing groups I teach, Diana, a darling older woman said her adult granddaughter wanted her to try writing a romance novel. She even sat down with Anna and went online, letting her read samples and choose a variety of books by different authors.

Germaine Greer slams Fifty Shades of Grey and Neighbours on Q & A episode dedicated to Shakespeare
Every knight on a white horse saving a girl in a tower had it. Every hero and heroine of every romantic comedy on the big screen has it. The First Love Poem A marriage is not a fait accompli : Check it off the list and then go unclog the toilet. Rather, marriage is an ever-evolving challenge, and the tension created by meeting that challenge is the key to its passion—and its success.
