in recognition of "singles awareness day"

SO. having spent valentines day with my lovely friends, partaking in chocolate and adult beverages, watching movies and talking about... stuff. needless to say, it was a pretty good night. I spent the actual day getting my haircut and colored (at the Aveda Academy from a student for DIRT CHEAP! glorious!) then shopping and stuff with Chelsea. but, in honor of the day of love, I post this poem by ee cummings about, well, love. I do not typically call myself some kind of sap, but this is pretty truly a beautiful portrayal of... ahh I can't say anything else without wanting to die. ENJOY!

i love you much(most beautiful darling)

more than anyone on the earth and i
like you better than everything in the sky

-sunlight and singing welcome your coming

although winter may be everywhere
with such a silence and such a darkness
noone can quite begin to guess

(except my life)the true time of year-

and if what calls itself a world should have
the luck to hear such singing(or glimpse such
sunlight as will leap higher than high
through gayer than gayest someone's heart at your each

nearness)everyone certainly would(my
most beautiful darling)believe in nothing but love
