Barbara Muir © 2018This month has inspired me in recent years to create my
own Valentine card. What could be better on the card
than a bird and a heart? The reason for me is simple.
I love birds. When I'm out for a walk and see sparrows
chirping in a thick hedge, so close I can almost count
their feathers, I feel charmed.
So what could be more natural than birds symbolizing
lovebirds. This month I was teaching on Valentine's
Day at night, and didn't quite finish my 2018 bird. But
never fear I thought -- I do have cards from past years.
Plus it's a whole month of love, not just one day.
(Fierce opponents of the idea of Valentine's Day point
out that we need to love each other all year -- true).
Ours is a celebratory family -- thank goodness, and if
a celebration wanders into our consciousness, it sticks.
So Happy Month of Love.
Spread the love. Goodness knows the world needs it!
