Happy Valentine’s Day!
Hope you are a having a lovely Valentine’s Day weekend! I used to not be a huge Valentine’s Day fan, until I realized this holiday does not just have to be about romantic love (although that is always nice). I like to think of it as holiday where you can show some love to your family, friends, significant other, or even people you don’t know. I tried to embody this sentiment at the party “Show Some Love” that I had last weekend, where I invited people to make valentines and contribute to the Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund, while watching Paris Je T’aime and New York I Love You.
Here’s a picture of the valentines I made at the party– who knows, maybe you will get one? 🙂
I’ll leave you with this poem by David Meltzer that I came across one day while working at the library in high school. I think it shows how love is rather indescribable…
The heart sees
what the mind sees
what the eyes see
