Though Valentines Day was yesterday, I wish to celebrate it with you today...
So, Happy Valentines Day Dear Friends and Family!!!
Last night the power went out at our house before I could make a special dinner for CG and I, so I'm planning on making it special tonight instead, but... the power just went out again for who knows how long... So maybe this "special dinner" won't get cooked for a while...
Still one very lovely side benefit of having no power is the excuse to light up the house with candles...
...which I absolutely LOVE....
I love the softness that candle light brings to a room, don't you?
Here is a love poem by the great and wonderful poet Pablo Neruda
'Who ever desired each other as we do'
Who ever desired each other as we do? Let us look
for the ancient ashes of hearts that burned,
and let our kisses touch there, one by one,
till the flower, disembodied, rises again.
Let us love that Desire that consumed its own fruit
and went down, aspect and power, into the earth;
We are its continuing light,
its indestructible, fragile seed.
Happy late Valentines Day...
