To love is to commit


Edwin says: "The phrase 一见钟情 (Love at first sight) is like the perfect love story. It speaks of the first encounters between lovers in which time stood still. It is passionate, romantic, momentary yet eternal. However, while we enjoy entertaining such ideas, 一见钟情 is not always realistic. I replaced the character 钟 with the similar sounding 忠 (loyal), to remind ourselves of the commitment and sacrifices required to keep love alive. To love is to commit."
