So, it’s February 14 and it’s that four-Letter word again… or is it? If the cynics are right, then Valentine’s Day is just a biz booster, a retail gimmick which serenades candy wrappers and white lace with manufactured mush made for the market. The cynics, of course, are WRONG. Love hasn’t faded into a wilting pink sunset. It’s still as deep a red as it always was. The heart will go on. And it’s getting bigger-err and brighter-err!
No two ways about it (forget the auricles and the ventricles), the heart of all matters. If life is all about the love of love, and the love of one’s life, the most freely expressed emotion of all deserves a day solely devoted to it. Suffice to say that the officially designated day for matters of the heart – the Big Day for the Big L – is the day when Cupid is all heart. Suffice to say that if there’s a spring in your step and a song on your lips, if there’s a lump in your throat and a thump in your heart, l-o-v-e has everything to do with it!!
So, whether you are Handsome Him or Heartthrob her, today is the Day to canoodle by candlelight and tune in to soppy love lyrics when you are not exchanging sweet nothings with that someone special for whom the flame burns. And don’t keep that upper lip stiff, pucker up! You never know, with lucky lips, you could always be…!!!
