No I'm not on twitter. But my yahoo mail has a red Valentine's heart on the top corner, and it throbs!
I thought it was cute.
But all cuteness aside, a day of lighthearted celebration of love is a good thing. The problem is when people take it so seriously that it means everything (or nothing). Red hearts all over the place are a nice burst of color, in this dark depths of winter, and after the festivities of Christmas and New Year, it brings a holiday mood into February. Our next holiday is Easter, and that is as late as March or April.
I was recently watching You've Got Mail with Meg Ryan (as Kathleen Kelly) and Tom Hanks (as Joe Fox). Kathleen sends herself a dozen red roses for Valentine's. She says to Joe that she does it for the possibility of love.
That is how we should all live: for the possibility of love, for the possibility of goodness, for the possibility of beauty, for the possibility of summer.
So many possibility, it gives us quite a busy schedule!
Here is a simple menu:
- Plate of sweet potato fries
- Glass of Cabernet Sauvignon Vista Point from California
Wine description from the menu:
Intense blackberry and currant, a smooth easy drinking wine for any occasion.I don't know why the wine is described as "intense" but it is more flavorful than intense.
Here's one moresite (pdf) with this brief description of the wine: "pleasant, semi-dry, smooth."
My evaluation is that the wine's fruity notes makes it a great match with the sweet potatoes.
Happy (belated) Valentine's to all!
