Bitters to Match the Sweet

Chocolate Candy Hearts wrapped in pink and red foil

I hope you all have had a Happy Valentine's Day.

For all of my rants against holidays and the inauthenticity of modern commercialized celebrations, I really do want people to enjoy the day. That's actually a driving premise here at Paideia, the reason why I do all of these birth date notices or historical comments. There is something to celebrate each and every day, something to learn, something to cherish.

So, if you took today to focus on romance, that's great, but remember that any day can be a time for romance. Chocolate candies and flowers are wonderful throughout the year. ;-)

A shot glass filled with candy hearts. Yum!!!

So, let's give thanks for the uplifting thrill and warm comfort of romance.

And now for some music:

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Tammy Wynette, "Bedtime Story"

Crystal Gayle, "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue"

Dolly Parton, "The Grass Is Blue"

Reba McEntire, "One Promise Too Late"

Mary Chapin Carpenter, "Come On Come On"

Alison Krauss and Union Station, "When You Say Nothing at All"
