VISIONS OF LOVE
Hey, guys! Thanks for all the concerned emails about the bathroom reno! You guys are so great…like my very own support group! It’s going…..well, let’s just say it’s going. This is a positive blog, remember!
GHers…does anyone remember that Mariah Carey song, Vision of Love? I think it was her first big hit. It was also my hubby’s and my “first official song”. That song was running through my mind as I contemplated the different happenings in Port Charles yesterday. It seems that everyone is looking at life and reality through one vision of love or another…
Destiny surely did treat Maxie kindly…I cannot imagine anything more special than having a vision of the sister that you loved and lost to help you through a turning point in your life. I have to admit, I was also reintroduced to a vision of love with Maxie and Spinelli, as I must admit that I had to keep reminding myself why I liked them int the first place. Luckily, Georgie’s sweet visit with Maxie helped me out. Spinelli is loving and accepting, and he inspires Maxie to be a better person. So…I shook my head in an effort to rid myself of the visions of Maxie and Johnny, and allowed myself to be caught up in the vision of love Maxie and Spin share…just like Maxie did.
Speaking of the hotheaded hottie, John Zacchara was all up in Dante’s face accusing Dante of believing in fairytales when it comes to the person Sonny is. John wants Sonny to pay for what happened to his sister, and that’s completely understandable. I have a sister, and I would turn the world upside down to make sure anyone who ever hurt her got what they deserved. Which must be why John is grossly exaggerating the facts surrounding his relationship with Claudia. Sonny may have treated her like garbage, but he never beat her or slapped her around. Sonny may have been a really bad husband, but Claudia was a horror of a wife. However, John has obviously deeply buried the many memories of when he treated his sister like a pariah, or called her a degrading, hurtful name in the backyard of his memory. And I can remember a time or two John called her a whore himself. I guess if you’re gonna dream up fairytales, you may as well write yourself into one! When John got up on that witness stand, he seemed to be trapped in a vision of love for his sis. Too bad it’s too little too late.
Claire has a vision of love like no one else’s. Her vision includes bringing down the elusive Sonny Corinthos and throwing away the key! She was so consumed by that prospect that when she saw him in the middle of a tirade that would’ve sent most women running, she stood there and took it all in like a man. She was actually looking rather turned on by what she saw, and she was so excited by it, that she was literally breathless by the time she got to the courthouse. I am curious to see how long it takes for Claire’s visions of love for putting Sonny away to turn into visions of love…making!
Morgan Corinthos is one of my favorite characters on GH, possibly because Aaron Revfum is one of my favorite actors. I’ve heard the bad news that Aaron is leaving GH, and that the role of Morgan is being recast. It’s bad news to me because I will miss him, and I don’t like recasts as a general rule. I’m still reeling from the news of Drew Garrett’s departure! Yet, I hear that it’s really good news for Aaron because if the rumors are true, Aaron has gotten himself a pilot, and that’s an amazing opportunity for him. So, I will wish him all the best. Getting back to Morgan, he is trying so hard to connect with his brother, Dante. It just about melts my heart! When Morgan pulled out that Yankees mug to show Ronnie, I realized that Morgan’s dealing with this situation with the heart of a Yankee fan! You have to hope beyond hope for something, even when everything seems to be going against you. And that’s exactly what Morgan is doing; he’s hoping that his dad and his brothers can have a normal “Go catch a Yankee game” relationship, and he’s doing it against all odds. His dad is facing life in prison, his brother is on the run to keep from confessing to killing his stepmother, and this his other brother is the one who set it all in motion when he infiltrated Sonny’s organization as an undercover cop, and then ratted him out. It’s about as hopeful a situation as when the Yankees are 10 games under .500 in August! Morgan’s vision of love looks past the odds and sees all the way to the pennant of brotherhood! How sweet is that?
Morgan’s sister Kristina had a vision of love like many girls her age and in her life situation. Her vision was about being the center of her dad’s universe, like most girls are. Instead, Kristina is barely able to be part of Sonny’s orbit because of his lifestyle and her mother’s precautions. That’s what sent Kristina on that journey of looking for love, acceptance, and being cherished. And, like most girls in that situation, when that ideal vision falls apart, she tries to recreate the vision with the first @$$hole that whispers something sweet, even if he slaps her around afterwards. Listen, I know that we are growing tired and weary of watching Kristina lie, but the truth is my friends, that these things are sometimes covered up for years! At least we know that the end is within sight for this nightmare. What I can’t understand is why people are angry at Alexis, Sonny, and Sam for blaming Ethan! They did not and do not see what we see on TV. They only have what Kristina is telling them, and they all have their own vision of love and trust when it comes to their fragile, roughed-up Kristina, so they will believe her until they have reason not to, and I’m not talking about theories. I’m talking about concrete proof. We just need to hope that Kristina realizes that her vision of love surrounding Kiefer is more like a nightmare!
Sam and Jason had probably given up on any visions of love once and for all…until they found their way back to each other. Then the allure of what they once shared together and the need to be accepted for who they are worked its magic once again, and that vision of love was reborn…better and stronger than it ever was. This time around, Jason and Sam have the benefit of lessons learned and 20/20 hindsight to make this vision clearer. That doesn’t mean stormy days won’t muddy that vision temporarily, but – as I keep reminding myself as I sit in my Noah’s Ark watching the 150 inches of rain go swishing by, the sun will come out again, and the vision before my eyes will be beautiful once again. Jason and Sam are about to have more than a stormy day or two. All indications point to a stormy season, but cheer up…the sun will shine again on our couple. And I believe that they’ll be just fine once things dry up and the flood waters of everyone else’s troubles recede. We just need to hang in there! (And call, call, call! those Comment Lines!)
Stay dry…and hopeful!
