I realise that we women of today are really quite reserved. We simply don’t know how to express our love for our husbands.
I’ve come to this realisation after I heard Violetta express her love for Alfredo in one of my favourite scenes from La Traviata. Here’s a performance of it – “Amami Alfredo”
The last time many of us women spoke with such feeling to our families, was probably the time we had had enough – and decided that clothes left on the floor would be ‘left’ there. We would not put them in the wash and we would mop the floor around them, until assorted members of our family came to their senses and put them in their proper place – in the washing machine or the dirty clothes basket!
And I wonder, do we need to listen to Violetta and learn?
How would our husband’s feel, if after all these year of being married, we wives declared our love for them with such passion. Would they be thrilled, or would they rush us off to the nearest doctor, thinking we had a severe stomach ache…..??
