I have always been amused that we need a specific day set aside to tell people (that should already know) that we love them. I am more of a let them know everyday kind of girl. I have always thought it was a holiday exploited by Hallmark, florists, and Sees Candies. However, I recently saw a commercial that I really liked presented by
none other than the aforementioned Hallmark.
The commercial said Valentines day isn't about "I love you," it's about "I love us."
So to my writers group, I love us. I love that we all have a unique voice and style. I love that we all speak the same language (and I don't mean English). I love the way we can laugh together, share together, and spend time together, feeling like time is riding the Autobahn.
To all writers, and appreciators of writing, I love us. Because of us, new authors are born, new books are published, new art is made.
And most especially, to my husband, I love us. For more things than I could name, but at the moment, I love that you are transcribing this blog for me while I do my hair. What a team :)
Happy Valentines Day, ya'll!
