Love really helps. Believe it.

Time for love

Coronavirus, horrific climate change, world leaders more
concerned with pleasing billionaires than taking care of
their citizens, and narcissistic, silly and irrational
people dominating the news.  There is still love, and maybe
if we can make our passion for caring about each other
dominate our choices we can solve some of these giant

I feel sorry for people who say they don't like Valentine's
Day.  Why?  To say the day is commercial -- so what?
Make your cards then, or like my mother make chocolate
fudge for your children, or your love.  My husband and
I have just started decorating the house -- putting up
the banners of hearts, and Valentine's decorations we've
saved for years.

Celebrate, celebrate, celebrate.  Celebrate whatever love
you have.  Your cat, your friends, your family near and
far.  That love really is the answer.

And your kindness and love for me that you show me
all year 'round helps me to think of the world as a
place of possibility, and affection, to feel like miracles
can happen.  A little bird told me.

Have a spreading the love day.
