It's A Valentine's Day Post

For someone who doesn't "do" Valentine's Day, it is a surprise that I have thought of doing a Valentine's Day post. The idea came today while I was busy trying to finish everything on my desk at work knowing full well that I cannot leave these for next week, especially since in this part of the world we are having a 3-day weekend in honor of President's Day on Monday. In the middle of a busy work day my mind wanders to blogging, how about that?

I have not done anything like this in 9+ years of blogging, but I thought I can somehow pull it off since I have quite a few shots that make me think of love.

"Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses." ~ Ann Landers

"In our life there is a single color, as on an artist's palette, which provides the meaning of life and art. It is the color of love." ~ Marc Chagall
