Today is arguably the most commercial and contrived of the holidays, but nevertheless, I'm going to try and find something genuine and worthwhile in it.
There are all kinds of love and I think this is a good day to be grateful for them.
I'm grateful for the uninhibited and exuberant love of my children.
I'm grateful for the enduring and enfolding love of my friends.
I'm grateful for the giving and dramatic love of my family.
I'm grateful for the warmth of love for humanity which is expressed in kindness and cheerfulness between strangers.
And I'm grateful for the passion and strength of romantic love.
Happy Valentine's Day.
