Hi there. It’s Valentine’s Day 2012. So happy v-day! I say (or write) that not in my usual sarcastic tone. I actually like Valentine’s Day. Sure, it’s a Hallmark holiday, but I enjoy what the holiday stands for. And that is love. Even if I’m not “in love” with someone, I love the idea of love. Love makes the world go round people. Embrace it.

To illustrate how much I love love, I will mention that I considered at one point to tattoo the Kanji symbol for love on my foot, until my Asian friends in the know told me that it was too common and tacky.

But I still love the symbol. I decided that if I do get a tattoo, and I went with a Kanji symbol, I’d go with the word “truth,” because truth to me can mean a number of things, including love. So I went a bit deeper than the everyday person who has the Kanji symbol for love tattooed on their foot. Go big or go home.

But I digress. My point is – love. Celebrate it – whether it be love for your significant other, your hobbies, your family, your friends, your job – just love it. Appreciate what’s in your life, even if you are going through a difficult time. Things will get better. And love what you do, where you go, what you see. It makes life more enjoyable.

Love you all (well, most of you). 😛

    to quote Mr. Burns: “now that I’m back to normal, I don’t bring you peace and love, I bring you fear, famine, pestilence and…”

    there’s no such thing as love! 😛
