a simple message.

14 Feb 2012

it’s here. valentine’s day. sad face.

or… valentine’s day! happy face!

regardless of how you or i feel about this day (and i, for one, am one who has a love/hate relationship with this holiday), it is a day that comes around every year. what am i gonna do with it this year? is it a love year or a hate year? well, instead of writing some gushy love letter (i did that last week: here), or preaching a sermon on love (i did that already: here and here.) or ranting and raving about the commercialism of love (i haven’t done that yet), i am sending out a simple message…

love.

love others. love yourself.

spread it. share it. give it. receive it.

 my love tattoo. representing the eternal love that i share with lina. 

and now.. a little music for the day. listen here.

Love, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It’s easy.

Nothing you can make that can’t be made.
No one you can save that can’t be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It’s easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

Nothing you can know that isn’t known.
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
It’s easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

peace & love. this day and always.

    I like valentines day though I don’t like the fuss about it. People forget that the tradition is hundreds of years old and not invented by florists! A special day dedicated to people’s love for each other. What is there not to like?
