Share the Love

It's that time of year once again. That time when it becomes impossible to book a last minute table in a restaurant, that time when if you wanted to send some flowers you should have placed the order weeks ago and that time when the shops are filled with giant heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. And is it just me or is there an awful lot of red around? Yes, in case you haven't noticed it's Valentine's Day - a day that puts fear into the hearts of men and a day which raises unusually high expectations from many women.

But that aside it is a day to share and express love. So let's put all thoughts that it's a giant ruse from the greeting card manufacturers to boost sales to the back of our minds and simply or extravagantly (however you chose to do it) express our love to our loved ones. And if you don't have anyone right now to share your love with, then ring a close friend and tell them how important they are to you or just treat yourself to something wonderful or do something great today to celebrate yourself as a fantastic human being.

As I am writing, I can hear a blackbird out in the garden sending his love call to a waiting lady blackbird. I hear her respond.

Happy Valentine's Day.
