Happy Day of Love Love

Just a quick note to acknowledge you today.

No matter what kind of love you have in your world, I hope you’re glad that you have the ability to experience it. One of the most miserable, sudden, delicious, sad, troublesome, happy-making, heart-breaking, fantastical, incredible, insane feelings in the world.

No matter if you have someone to share it with – please accept my digital hug and thoughts of Love Love for you today.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

And here’s a picture of my cat who owns all and loves none. Not really. He loves me. I think.
