St Malchkeon

They invented hugs to let people know you love them without saying anything. ..

Are we not like two volumes of one book?

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul
 ~ Judy Garland

I got a Valentine's Day card from my grrrrlll. It said, 'Take my heart! Take my arms! Take my lips!' Which is just like her. Keeping the best part for herself (Bohemian humours Freudian ant eating spider ... via Our antipodean ABC )

The history behind Valentine's Day

Adele – And David Bowie – Is The Big Winner At The Grammys

Beyoncé won Best Contemporary Urban Album for “Lemonade” but lost out to Adele in the other big categories; David Bowie won his first Grammys for Blackstar; Chance the Rapper had a big night – and politics took center stage for some performers, like Katy Perry and A Tribe Called Quest (google “President Agent Orange”).
"Kafka is really magic. He was really an extraordinary human being, who saw literature as a way to repair the world, as a form of art. Not that he thought his work would do that, but that was part of the goal of literature.” Where are Kafka's letters?

Connection counts more than the flowers on Valentine's Day 

Jeremy McLellan is a comedian but like all great comedians he captures truths and complexities underneath the laughs.
Valentine’s Day is a just a fake holiday invented by Hallmark to sell greeting cards. So what have you invented recently to make people happy? Nothing, that’s what!
In three lovely sentences McLellan recaps Hayek versus Galbraith on the nature of advertising, consumer demand and entrepreneurship. Entire dissertations could be written parsing this out.
