'Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.' -Khalil Gibran
Well, let me start by wishing each one of you a very happy Valentine's Day! I have been witnessing the frenzy around me :-)..... Youngsters, arm in arm, lost in deep conversation over plates of cakes, more precisely, red velvet cakes, filled up the cafeterias.Last evening I visited a cafe and this was what I saw there.... People walked in and picked up their orders and most of those were heart shaped cakes! These heart shaped cakes have now become a symbol of love :-).... The florists,too, had the same stories. The prices of flowers have touched the skies! Bouquets, cakes,cards.....needless to say, gifts,too....these seem to form the very essence of the day.... I call it the day of love and friendship... I have a totally different take,of course, about the day. To me, each and every day is Valentine's Day.... How can we exist without love and friendship and all of those beautiful virtues? And I do not need a day to celebrate this so-important virtue :-).... At the same time, I do like to see the frenzy around me :-)....there is so much activity around me! And I love the positive feel!
While I treated myself to a cup of tea and some sandwiches at the café, took in the aromas of the freshly baked cakes,the trays arrived in batches and were placed on the counter only to be packed up neatly into the boxes and ready to be delivered. I watched the 'totally-in-love' couples deep in lovey-dovey conversation :-), I felt good. I say, let there be love every day, in every moment, let us not fall out of love, let us show our love to the larger mankind in our small ways. Love is a beautiful word and I hope that we never ever forget it. My day has started on a happy note; gifts from a special friend has made it extra special...sharing some photographs from my home.
I would love to hear from you, your responses and thoughts on this forever important love. Do share with me here your takes on love. Have a wonderful love-filled day!
