A day of dread and envy or love and celebration. Can there be a third option, being a believer in love, but not get caught up in the marketing ploys of cards, flowers, and chocolates. I offer a different perspective on Valentines day; I prefer dr. suess to cheesy poems, colorful tulips to the traditional roses, and pizza and beer to chocolates. Why reserve one day to celebrate love, build it up and show it on one day. I’m a believer that love should be an everyday occurrence. In your daily actions, toward your loved one, towards your neighbors, your coworkers, towards your fellow man. It brings to the table the bigger issue, how are you living your life, how are you showing love, if you are showing love at all.
For my 2013 Valentines post I’ve decided to select my favorite photographs from past Valentine’s posts.
