Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Hope you’re spending it with people you love doing things you love. MJ has a teaching commitment tonight so I made Valentine cookies for him to share with his students and we frosted them together after enjoying a pre-Valentine’s dinner out.  Note that I spread the frosting to the edges.  He tried to leave a neat little border of unfrosted cookie.  Probably tells you something about each of us.  But even more telling is that we both frosted the cookies in our own preferred way and didn’t care a bit if the other frosted their cookies differently.  That’s a good thing about having been married for thirty-seven years.  We can see each others’ differences and (mostly) not let them totally bug us!

If you’re busy frosting cookies or doing something else that is amenable to podcast listening you might enjoy Krista Tippett’s interview with philosopher and writer Alain de Botton about love and relationships. This is on the heels of him having written the most downloaded essay in the New York Time’s last year about Why You Will Marry The Wrong Person.  Grateful I ended up with the person who’s wrong for me in all the right ways.

    • More Flower Show shots of people, plants and garden-themed paraphernalia including beautiful batik-printed scarves by textile artist Jane Hickman (scroll through to see a shot of us both wearing her wares). The rose covered folly is by the same company that created my friend Pauline's brick folly in her Oakland urban garden. Ended the day with an Evensong service at Westminster Abbey which is about a block away from where we're staying. Had a hard time keeping my eyes open through the Palestrina number but my choir director sister-in-law Diane says that Palestrina intended to write music that would float you away on a choral cloud. Mission accomplished.
