st. valentine day

Some of my friends express disappointment along with disbelief when I tell them that I am not a romantic. I don’t exactly know what I am, i.e., what popular category I fit it into, but romantic is not one of them. Maybe it happened in high school, that most horrible of horrible times. Or maybe it happened later on in my twenties when the road under my feet started swaying…or perhaps it was a gradual shift away from what I came to feel was a box of chocolates. In any case, the world needs its romantics, so I tip my imaginary hat to all who are, and send this quirky little valentine today, with lots of gratitude for your faithfulness in repeatedly clicking back to Called by Name even when the named one has not been answering the phone! (Ah, that’s a bit of my weird humor…you gotta be here…body language and facial expressions go with it.)

Happy St. Valentine’s Day to one and all. This valentine came to me from one of my dear romantic friends. Where she got it, I don’t know, but suspect it has traveled some from screen to screen, so this funny valentine has miles on her. Of course I had to take it into Photoshop, change it and make it my own. How else would it be from me to you?

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Your replys are always welcome.

    Unromantic, but passionate nonetheless.

      Naomi, good to hear from you and a good reminder to go back to your web site and see what’s up.
      I probably am a romantic with my lover/husband and with the world. It was so exciting watching the non-violent revolution in Egypt! Gives me hope for all of us to find our own voices.
      Happy Valentines Day to you Naomi. Nancy
      PS – not sure why the name and email comes up as Max? But, it doesn’t seem to want to change. What can I say???

    Like it Naomi….no need to explain why you are not a romatic..We are all just who we are. I am a bit surprised by how many people are into Valentine’s Day this year. Or am I just aware more than usual.
    I like your transformation of the Valentine.
    Thanks for your writings. JK

    Love the colors. I get so tired of the red and white and silver business. Way too Hallmark. Anyway, I hope you had a good February 14–not because it was Valentine’s Day but because it was just an ordinary good day.
