“Unless you love someone, nothing else makes sense.”
— e.e. cummings
Can you find the hidden heart in this little snowdrop?

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung, and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with your hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”
— C. S. Lewis, quoted in In Pursuit of Love: Catholic Morality and Human Sexuality by Vincent Genovesi
I love this reminder to keep my heart soft, vulnerable and open. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I pass these trees on my walks to work. I think they are katsura trees because of their delicate heart-shaped leaves. I love the dappled colors of these leaves in the morning light.

I love the idea of “Art in the Park,” and perhaps even more so when the art appears to pop up spontaneously without the sponsorship of a formal event. So the Valentine’s Day art at Green Lake was an unexpected delight. Here are some of the images from my Valentine’s Day walk around Green Lake:
A heartfelt thanks to the anonymous artists who shared their lovely Valentine’s Day art in the park with us. And a special thank you to my friend Lynne, who sent me an early morning email urging me to get out for a walk to see these creations in their natural setting.
