Happy Valentine's Day! Enjoy your chocolate, snuggle up with your lover or partner or husband or wife, girlfriend or boyfriend, yes? I say YES.
Mid-February is a great time to celebrate a holiday of love. Love generates heat and energy, both of which are much needed at this time of year if you live in the northern hemisphere. As cold and snowy as February can be, it is the very beginning of spring mating season for birds, sheep, goats and other animals. Because we humans are also animals, we catch the vibe, too. Oh yeah.
Romance has never been my best thing, sadly. I was good at falling in love, once upon a time, but never great at staying in love. That idea of "till death do us part"? I never got it. I was unable to promise to be monogamous, even in marriage. Oh dear how those hormones bedeviled me! Yikes.
Now, in middle age, it's quite likely that I could be a really solid and serious partner, though given my advanced age of 57 (!!) it's quite likely I'll never get a chance to try. Hey. I'm not feeling sorry for myself, not at all. What I'm actually feeling today is a sweet tenderness for all of you out there who somehow were able to mate and stay mated. I salute you all! Bravo and brava!!
A toast to love! Cheers!
