For many years I have helped couples and individual people in long term relationships. During the last 50 years or so, the word LOVE has been bandied about: lost love, unrequited love, unhappy love, "may be" love, etc, etc.
Every one of my clients that were seen in my office, used the word "love" or synonyms of it, or other similar phrases, which means different things to different people. And many times, some people did not understand what they were saying at all.
This book will attempt to find out what or where is love. The idea of the word "love" goes back many eons to the beginnings of time, starting with Adam and Eve (don't eat the apple).
The confusion in the meaning of the word "Bupkis" means less than nothing or zero. There are thousands of ways of dissecting the meaning, which contribute to the confusion. The word is borrowed from the Yiddish dialect. For example: "I got Bupkis for my bonus". The word also might mean "beans", which is minimal, i.e. nada, nil, zero, or zilch. The word "Bupkis" did not become common in non Jewish writings until the late 1960's. The word is most common today. A Dick Van Dyke TV sit-com was based on the word "Bupkis".
This author wishes to help you understand what love or caring means to the individual person reading this book.
I wish you all a rewarding journey.
