What’s love? Depends on whom you ask 

As Valentine’s Day approached, The Maine Edge asked several people connected with the University of Maine to define love. Those queried included Amy Blackstone, sociology professor; Kat Johnson, senior museum educator & marketing manager at the University of Maine Museum of Art; Karen Pelletreau, adjunct biology faculty; Danny Williams, executive director of the Collins Center for the Arts; Julie Lisnet, adjunct theater professor; and Bruce Pratt, adjunct literature professor. Blackstone offered, “While for most of us it is a private expression, it is also a concept that shapes almost all aspects of our lives, from who we are allowed to marry to how we form our families to how we spend our money.” And Williams said, “I don’t just like yellow mustard. I love it.”
