Wordy Valentine’s Gifts

Happy Valentine’s Day. Today is the perfect day to share sweet words with the people you care about. Feel free to share one of your favorite quotes with us.

For those of you in the mood to keep reading, check out my 2010 post about my favorite Valentine’s Day – the offer in it still stands. And, I hope to do something with Sumnal when I return to Macedonia this May.


  1. “One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires …causes proper matters to catch fire…Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it.

    If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.

    Do not lose heart. We were made for these times.”

    ~Clarissa Pinkola Estés


  2. A very good friend wrote this to me the other day in an email: “Don’t expect perfection, but enjoy the moment of doing.”

    I still can’t find that awesome advice you wrote to me. Driving me nuts.
