Let's not forget that these days leading to St. Valentine's Day may be sad or even bitter ones for some folks as they watch love in the air in Blog Universe this month. This may be the most important time of year for some to pour out their love instead on their house or their pets or family and friends. Don't forget also to pour out some love on yourself, please.
To some of my women friends who have had their hearts broken in the past, I leave you with this one comforting sentence made famous by Jane Ace whose malaprops entertained audiences on radio in the 1930s:
"Time wounds all heels."
And if you're compelled, by whatever reason, to live with one of life's frustrating men and feel as if you're sometimes alone on the relationship road, you can always try doing like Diane Keaton's character did in Something's Gotta Give when forced into taking care of Jack Nicholson's character at her beach house when he leaves the hospital.
She throws up her hands and reminds herself:
"Play music, cook, write, focus!"
My apologies to any men who might be reading this and are in the same situation. I'm not sure what the feminine equivalent of a heel is but feel free to contribute.
I'd put a big yellow smiley face here if I knew how to.
