Valentine's Day

I hope everyone experienced something of love and kindness on Valentine's Day--giving and receiving.

Mike and I did things we do together--a walk on the beach, sitting in the sun on the boardwalk watching porpoise playing in the surf, preparing and sharing a favorite meal, a bottle of wine.

Then we watched "Big Love" on HBO. Yikes! That is one contorted twist on the concept of love.

I try not to be too judgemental about peoples' religions. I try, but mostly I fail. Seriously, I think religion is rigged like a game of One-eyed Jack (see Patti from Arkansas at

Note #1: I don't belong to a church or subscribe to a particular religion. I'll go to a Unitarian-Universalist service if I find one that I judge "not too Unitarian." See what I mean about failing in the judgemental department?

Note #2: I know there is a less awkward way to link, but I can't seem to master it.


  1. Sounds like a very nice day. Religion is a kettle of stinky fish. Conflict is its companion.

  2. Thanks so much for the link. It took me a while also to learn the trick.
    There is a little green icon to the right of the Text color button at the top of your new post form if you use Blogger Dashboard. Highlight a word or phrase in your text to indicate a link, click on the button then follow the instructions. You can then access Text color button to change the color of the link word so it will stand out more. Have fun.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
