I am usually a bit of a bah humbug when it comes to Valentines Day, it is just far too commercialized a day for my liking. Those dozen red roses or Hallmark cards just don’t seem authentic enough.
So I was delighted to read this poem written in 1979 for the writer’s sweetheart … a poem that still holds true today. To be honest it made my heart melt. Check it out on Bushed Pilot Blog.
By the way, I was introduced to the Bushed Pilot blog by my friend Tandi, who tells some great stories herself on her own blog The Song I Live By – stories of living on a houseboat in Yellowknife on Great Slave Lake, just a few hundred kilometers below the Arctic Circle. It’s a whole other world there.
Worth a look. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the stories of such adventurous souls!
