It Is usually the people we are most intimate with who inspire or provoke the most intense feelings of love and hate, each of these a dichotomy that cannot exist without the other. Within each of these dichotomies are many levels of feeling, and yet, are they always balanced? An equal measure of pain and passion, of appreciation and resentment, of lust and disgust? In relation to others, this is an ever present and ever precarious balancing act that often leads to ambiguous outcomes.
