“I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.'” ~Maya Angelou
Many people are cynical about Valentine’s Day, but a day that celebrates love is nothing to be cynical about. It doesn’t have to cost a dime.
It’s fine to be cynical about over-commercialization, but about love itself? That is sad, I think.
Yes, I know Valentine’s Day focuses on romantic love, and not all of us have significant others, but Love is in the air. Enjoy it!
