The picture above is a still
from a short black & white film I appeared in called "February
14", made in 1993.
Valentine's Day...a time set aside for
celebrating the love we (hopefully) share with someone special--our "beshert"
(the Hebrew word for soul mate--the one we are meant to be with). We take
time to let those we care for know how special they are to us. It's not
uncommon these days to let Hallmark and Godiva do the talking for us;-)
Not that's there's anything wrong with that--it's just that *I* am driven
to find words within myself to express to those I love most just
how much they mean to me.
If you have a companion, spouse, lover, signficant other...rejoice.
On the other hand, if you (like me) find
yourself without a true companion this time around, don't despair...search
your heart for the places kept warm by the affections and devotion of friends
--even strangers who will touch us for a moment, yet leave us forever changed.
Don't ever feel you have to wait for February 14th to let those you love know just how you feel ;)
