There is a road from the eye to the heart
that does not go throught the intellect

San Valentine's day should not be reserved to a mere day...

I would like to come up with a romantic vision of Saint Valentine's day but I am at a crossroad...
We always said the thought is what counts, but more than often we see the turnmoil and emptyness in which this day has transformed.I think that Valentine's is the perfect occasion to make a phone call or send and email to friends old and new, rusty and shiny, even a little token of communication to that old aquaintaince we forgot in the one dusty corner of our memory.The expression of love, friendship, good will and intentions, should not be reserved to a mere day, these are all expressions of inner life that should be conveyer everyday to those who we have the opportunity to share this journey we call life. Saint Valentine's day would not be only for this date, or a special day....Ditch the tired clitches !
On the other hand I guess we need to believe in things that helps us keep going ... Christmas , Easter, Valentine's Day ...spite of that changed the real meaning of it it's still good,because for a fleeting moment someone finds happiness just by realizing that someone out there is thinking of them .


So Happy Valentine's Day does not matter if you are in a couple or not .




"... We die. We die rich with lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we've entered and swum up like rivers. Fears we've hidden in - like this wretched cave. I want all this marked on my body. Where the real countries are. mapswith Not boundaries drawn on the names of powerful men. I know you'll come carry me out to the Palace of Winds. That's what I've wanted: to walk in such a place with you. With friends, on an earth without maps ... -The english patient"
