I do as well.  Aristotle - using one ancient Greek legend - was trying to understand the concept of love...and I think this concept describes those of us lucky enough to have had it...

If I may digress - there is a great BBC show called Death in Paradise (mystery show) available on Netflix.  The next to last episode of Season 5 - replacing the main character with a new one, who is a widow (cop), and the character to be replaced, says "I'm so sorry" when new character tells him that his wife died.

The new character's reaction is: "no, don't be sorry - I was a very lucky man."  And he goes on from there.  I me...that was also one of the most heartfelt things I've heard in my 6 years since I lost my other soul...

Cathexis ...

Oh good heavens. That took my breath away. Thank you for this--it describes it perfectly.
