Oh, the up-coming week will be sooooo exciting. I don't know where to begin. (Can you still your beating heart?)
While we're on the subject of one's heart, as we all know Monday is Valentine's Day! Now, you may view the "day of love" as a ridiculous commercial obligation OR a pause in one's busy life to say, "I love you" in some special way.
My vote falls somewhere in between: celebrate if one is so inclined, pourquoi pas (?), but it's quite sad to think one celebrates love once a year. Every day is best. If Valentine's Day makes us think about the latter then I'm all for it.
The other day I asked My-Reason-For-Living-In-France what he thought of the fete and he replied: "It's nice, it's fine, but I think one should show love every day in small ways and give gifts throughout the year."
Then he said, "Is today Valentine's Day?" (If it weren't for the bright lights and Christmas decorations all over the country he probably wouldn't know when it was Noël.)
On The Agenda For The Week:
1.) A short story on Valentine's Day, about Valentine's Day, by someone I love.
2.) News, Views, A Justifiable Rant
3.) More on dressing
4.) On-the-street photos
6.) Country Life
7.) The Future. . .
A demain. Have a lovely Sunday. We are in the midst of false hope. It appears that spring has sprung, but next week winter will return. My poor forsythia thought the coast was clear.
*What I'm wearing today: White shirt; gray flannel trousers; navy boyfriend sweater; navy Chanel ballerinas; round, flat lapis lazuli stud earrings, my watch.
