  • smallmeasureExactly 17 years ago today, I hosted a sort of Galentine's Day afternoon at my apartment. I was nursing a broken heart at the time, and felt that cutting out and decorating heart-shaped cookies with some ladies I loved would help in the healing. Fast foreword to today, where @glennbenglish and I surprised Huxley with some Valentine's Day gifts before I served my guys this first course of breakfast, a Blood Orange, Grapefruit, Navel Orange, Coconut, and (natural) Maraschino Cherry Salad. All of which is to say, that in life and in love, you never know what's ahead. I find that heartening, to think that, at any given time, a rut or undesirable or challenging situation I'm in is subject to change. As Walt Whitman famously wrote "Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes." Take heart, friends, this Valentine's Day, and always, that things will change. Sending love, from me and my house to you and yours.
