Sunday Favorite 21: Valentine's Edition

To everyone out there, partnered or single, Happy St. Valentine's Day.

Today is my father's 80th birthday. Yes, he was born on February 14. We're headed off to the LA Natural History Museum. It's the museum's corporate partners day so I and my family can get in for free. I'm looking forward to it; haven't been to this museum since the 80's.

In honor of today, here is a quote by novelist Bart Yates:

Love doesn't "grow." It doesn't wait for you to discover it, it doesn't fall like a gentle rain from the sky, it doesn't tiptoe into your heart like a happy little bunny, and it doesn't have a fucking thing to do with familiarity. Love is neither patient nor kind. Love attacks. Love is raw, and violent, and instantaneous. You don't fall in love; you get trampled by it. If it doesn't drop you to your knees and make you shake like a wet dog, it's not love.

BEHR HUGS to all!
