Commentary on films, books, television, politics, and a little fiction of my own, to boot.

I understand the cynicism re Valentine's Day,
Even if it is one that I have never shared. As cynical as I can be about life, I am still also an absolute hopeless romantic at heart. There is always at the core for me hope that romantic and platonic love might be the only cure for a world that throughout history, at every point, thought The Future Is Broken.
So, any day, no matter how crass or co-opted or debased as it has become, that celebrates love is just fine by me, in my book.
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone.
And, happy Valentine's Day to the love of my life, Renee. I love you.
