Don’t get me wrong, contrary to what the previous paragraph might indicate, I’m not against Valentines day but I don’t think it adds much value to anything. Perhaps it’s simply because I prefer spontaneity over scheduled love. Maybe the reason why it is such a popular day is that it provides some sort of reprieve from depth while allowing us to enjoy the fluffy side of love.
The movie Avatar has a very interesting theme in the words “I see you.” I see you beyond the physical person standing in front of me. I see all of you. I look beyond the shape and see your heart, your soul and your being. I acknowledge you as an entire person deserving of love and respect.
