If I can follow in The Misanthrope's footsteps for a day:
I suppose that I could love you
Though my mind tells me no way
It says screw it
You've been through it
It' s not worth the price you pay
(Loudan Wainwright III)
I'm not broke but you can see the cracks
You can make me perfect again
( U2: "All Because of You [I Am])
After many years of buying roses and jewelry and cards, last year I finally found a good reason for why we should celebrate Valentine's Day -- traveling. I had to travel from a conference in Indianapolis, connecting through Chicago in the evening. The airports were empty. The plane was nearly empty. The traffic back to my home once I arrived was free and easy.
Love was in the air, and it was heaven.
