STOP for a minute.
Yes, this is my Valentine post but, it's not about what we typically associate with love, romance, and this February holiday.
(lillianvernon.com)It's not about the flowers delivered to my door.
It's not about the one I love,
It's about that symbol of love,
that has beautiful applications
when it's not too contrived.
Or too overworked.
Don't you agree?
(blog.photoshelter.,com)Hearts show up accidentally and I'm good with that.
Hearts are a part of nature and who isn't good with that?
Hearts are a part of art and there is a license for that.
It's when they show up in plastic that....
I want to get out the double barrel and blow them away.
I don't want the subtle heart shapes to be usurped by the tacky. It's a beautiful, meaningful symbol, so here's hoping it doesn't become just a happy face...mundane and meaningless.
My heart's in the right place when I wish a Happy Valentine's Day to all!
(that one day of the year when all hearts are accepted)
