“Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.”
Happy Valentine's Day, my friends!
However - or if - you choose to acknowledge or celebrate this day of love, please know that I love having this (almost sometimes) daily connection with you all. I am grateful for your friendship -- virtual and real, near and far, old and new. Thanks for being here in this space with me.
And now . . . a little something to warm your heart. This essay from The Washington Post is fairly short and quick to read -- but it packs a powerful punch. It's sure to bring some joy to your day. (EDITED: It was pointed out that this essay is only available for WaPo subscribers. I am sorry about that.) (EDITED AGAIN: Okay. It seems some people who are not WaPo subscribers can still pull up this essay. So go ahead and give it a try.) (AND EDITED AGAIN: Apparently if you are not a WaPo subscriber AND you are trying to read the article on your phone, it will ask you to log in. If you're reading on your computer, however, you can click through and read it. So. Try it from your computer!)
All the love . . . to all of you!
