A Valentine Hello!

chocolatesToo cute!

This Valentine’s blog is a day late, but as some “haters” say, love should be celebrated all year long, not just on a “Hallmark Holiday.” Which brings me to this great article I wrote for gasm, explaining why Valentine’s Day should be embraced, not poo-pooed: http://gasm.org/blog/valentines-day-is-coming-beware-the-haters/

I have to say, I’m pretty darn proud of that article, as it brought tears to the eyes of one of my male friends! (A friend who once told me he never cries). So read with an open mind and open heart.

In other news, I gave several lectures on the History of Valentine’s Day at assisted living facilities throughout New Jersey. At a rehab in Newton, I fell in love with the cutest 103-year-old lady. She held my hand, kissed my hand and begged me to stay with her. My work is so rewarding.

Valentine’s Day is a time of chocolates and wine, but I asked my husband for kombucha instead! Kombucha is healthy, delicious and gives you a natural euphoric high!

My husband and I went to the movies and saw “Winter Tale” which was romantic and spiritual.

And we had a full moon!

Love Those Twilight Walks

On hot summer days, one looks forward to evening when it cools down and becomes more refreshing.

I love, last night, going for a super long walk in the woods with my husband, starting out at the end of the day, while the sun is still out and wearing sunglasses. Then it starts to cool, the sun goes down and there we have it — twilight!

In addition to seeing deer and birds and other little critters, we caught the almost-full moon in all her glory!
