Towards the love light

Barbara Muir © 2013One of my artists friends has been yearning
for February, and maybe it's because it's a
month filled with the colour red (one of
my favorites), and permission to gush. If
you are given to hyperbole -- this is the time
for it. Bring it on. In Toronto, here we are
in the depth of winter, and this brilliant
celebration of love will pull us through
half of another month -- hearts everywhere,
boxes of delicious chocolates for sale in every
savvy store -- pink popping up in clothing,
in decor, a smorgasbord of pink, and red and
chocolate, and fancy dinners, and romance.
Romance. Don't even get me started on passion.
Wow! Even if you live alone you can pick up
some flowers and chocolate and cozy in with
a good book, (and I hope a cat -- cats are great
companions) and groove on the happy vibe of
people being kind to one another.
By the time everyone realizes what's hit them,
it's almost March, and then there's St. Patrick's
Day, and before you know it it's spring, and the
whole happy time starts over again.
The painting today is of tulips. I am always
delighted when tulips are readily available
in pots. It is a sign -- just like Christmas trees
in December. It's all going to happen people.
So let's enjoy it together.
Have a-getting-ready-to-be-loving day.
