I’m sure some kind of romantic. Here I am writing up today’s edition only to find that I totally missed Valentine’s Day.
Now justifying my oversight to myself, I theorized I had an especially busy week with seemingly an obligation penciled in about every day for the last week.
But really what kind of world do we live in where all those commercial efforts to prompt me to make a romantic purchase.
Well woe is me. Not only did I really not have anyone I was interested in asking for that Valentine dance – which is a bit challenging in a scooter – it just never even dawned on me to post some loving thoughts on Facebook.
And so here we are on the 2D after V with the Skyy dog mostly sleeping through her last mid February days as she sorrowly edges closer to her first steps on the Rainbow Bridge.
People tell me she’ll let me know when it’s time but I’m not that confident about that, we’ll see.
So now sniffling and with tears rolling down my check back to one of those holidays – at least it is always celebrated on the same day – that I am convinced was designed by retailers to peddle a variety of red colored goods.
Thinking of myself as a bit of a wordsmith usually I would have something profound to tell a true love but my last attempt at actually sharing my sincere thoughts met disaster.
Geez I’m sounding like Dear Abby – Hey that could be my next attempt at being paid for what falls from my fingerprints.
How about from Romeo and Juliet – My bounty is as boundless as the sea. My love as deep. The more I give to thee. The more I have, fot both are infinite.
Old Bill Shakespeare gave that to us but my Greek influence sent me instead to Aristotle who profounded love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
I’ll buy that one.
But Helen Keller might have been blind but she got it.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, she said. They must be felt with the heart.
Hear ye hear ye..just sayin’
