Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow airport.
General opinion makes out that we live in a world of hatred and greed.
I don't see that.
Seems to me that love is everywhere.
Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy but it's always there.
Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.
When the planes hit the Twin Towers none of the phone calls from people on board were messages of hate or revenge.
They were all messages of love.

If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.  


Oh, yes, this journal is all about the upcoming St Valentine’s Day. I know people who claim that they find this day stupid and meaningless. I remember a time when it held a very particular meaning, at least to some of us. It was the day which we chose to reveal our secret feelings to the ones we secretly loved without revealing ourselves in the process. It was the day we sent (anonymously) the only card that we hadn’t ripped up in frustration, trying to write something meaningful and deep, the day we made anonymous calls just to play a song, hoping that the person who had picked up the phone was the right one and not the grandpa! Or, for the bravest of us, the day we left on our hero’s desk a flower which after being kept hidden in pockets for so long and after much handling from sweaty palms came up looking extremely forlorn!  Right, I belonged to that old-fashioned “hopelessly romantic and shy as hell” group aka The Mighty Mice!

Although St Valentine’s Day doesn’t hold that special meaning to me anymore for obvious reasons, I’m not against it, not in the least. It’s always refreshing to see people in the streets holding flowers, teddy bears and hearts in all sizes.  It’s just that it should happen every day, on any given day. What I can’t accept is that it’s possible when you truly love somebody to let a single day pass without telling or showing him/her that you do. Time spent with the people you love is never enough and no matter how many times you tell them you love them it is never too much...Well… at least seems that way to me. But then again, I still belong to that old fashioned group :shrug:

Happy Valentine’s to all! www.youtube.com/watch?v=idHrz_…

Hope you had a fun Valentines Day! Ours was very wet and cold which is weird since its summer here. Oh well...
justeline's avatar
Cold and wet and really windy here too, but yeah, had a great time!
The sunset was nice too, got totally wet trying to catch some waves, I hope I got something decent (you wouldn't believe how unbelievably slow I am to upload my photos to my computer :rofl: )
Thank you Dan :hug:
