I was on Slate.com, as always concerned that it's a halfway house to the conservative right, and I couldn't resist the click on the Eiffel Tower pix.

Silhouettes of embracing couples used to be just so much background noise. Innocuous design. Like flower shapes or seashells or landscapes.

Now they have a certain bite.

Accusatory when they tell me that if I were a better person, I'd still be making some loving silhouettes of my own.

Nostalgic when I indulge in the embraces of my memory.

Bittersweet when I contemplate the possibility of ever enjoying another lusty and loving relationship.
