Happy Be Nice Day
Valentine's Day is really a huge marketing ploy by corporate America to get you to buy candy, flowers and scratchy lace underwear. I'm not sayin' I don't celebrate, I'm just sayin' that we should be nice to each other EVERY day of the year, not just Valentine's Day!
Larry and I usually create original V-Day cards for each other...something topical. We've been doing this since our first V-Day together...1991. We met in April of 1990 and have been together ever since. Sigh. True Love.
The inscription reads: Larry Underhill (b. 1952); Ellen's Larry. 2008. Flesh, blood, glass, plastic, cotton and LOVE. 38 x 68". Collection Ellen Bloom.
My Valentine to Larry usually consists of a photograph from something in our overgrown backyard with a witty little caption. This year's entry is a photo of Larry's 1963 red Dodge.
We're Sinking Deeper and Deeper...
(into our relationship)
However you celebrate the day, BE NICE TO EVERYONE, especially yourself!
