How do you say, “I love you?”

Do you say it through actions? Do you say it words? Fortunately, in the Square Jehan Rictus Place des Abbesses in the Montmartre neighbourhood of Paris, France, there’s no wrong way to express your love for someone.

With more than 300 written declarations of love in 250 different languages, I love you: the wall (Le mur des je t’aime) has become a meeting place for lovers of love. Described as the most romantic place in Paris, artists Frédéric Baron and Claire Kito explain that walls, like frontiers, are usually made to divide and to separate people and to protect them from one another. According to their web siteI love you : the wall is a link, a place of reconciliation, a mirror which reflects an image of love and peace.

This photo of I love you: the wall seemed like a natural fit for this week’s photo challenge of “One Love” pictures from The Daily Post. As made abundantly clear on this wall, there’s no one way to say, “I love you.” I snapped this photo, like most of my other photos from Paris, while wondering aimlessly and somewhat lost, along the city’s winding roads.

According to Anne McCarthy, blogger at The Daily Post, the universe is constantly whispering words of love: expressions of pure joy, respect, loyalty, and sacrifice for someone other than ourselves, and instructions on letting go and focusing on what is most important in this world.

Je t’aime! Te amo! Jag älskar dig! It all means the same thing. Aside from these three little words, how do you say, “I love you?”
