So, it's Valentines Day. Ostensibly, this is one of those non-denominational, secular holidays, yet it's on St. Valentine's Day, thus a Catholic issue, and the whole thing is depicted with Cupid's Arrow, a pagan diety, or at least a demi-god, at play.

Rejecting that aspect, let's look at the day another way: Am I in love? Oh, yes I am. forestcats has been my love for more than half my life at this point, and I acknowledge that every day. I love watching her sleep. I look for her when I know she's just over there. I think about her while I do my work. I speak about her to everyone I know. I cherish her at all times. I'm so proud of all that she does.

So why do I need a special day to express this?

Well, really, I don't.

So today, tomorrow, next week, next month, and until the sun turns into a red giant, I love you my dear.

What a lovely post!
You express that so nicely, not cynical like me this year.
I have been married for 28 years now and we are doing pretty good, I just don't need this holiday :-)

We've been married or living together for over thirty years at this point, so we're looking at the same order of magnitude of time. Although there are big days to recall (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.), this day isn't that kind of important. Is it a day to rekindle? Maybe, but I'd say I still burn pretty hot, so what's to kindle?

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
