Self-Portrait 3


...The dream of on-the-road internet access is still within my grasp, so I may be back to regale you with tales of the road come tomorrow. Then again, it's entirely possible that I'm signing off until Tuesday. If the latter is the case, then I leave you with this:

Valentine's Day is this Friday. Those of you that are lucky enough to be with someone, take some time out Friday to be with them. Hold them close, and tell them you love them. If you can't get to them to hold them close, call them. Send flowers, send an e-mail. Just make sure they know you love 'em.

And if you don't have a significant other, it doesn't matter. You love somebody in this world, and somebody in this world loves you. Call them and let them know. Give them a smile, a hug, a kiss, a kind word. There probably isn't much time left in this world for any of us to do anything, and that being the case, loving each other is about the only thing worth doing.

And lest you think I've gone completely soft on you, I also leave you with this pearl of wisdom from the Love Man himself, Smoove B:

"When you have finished the cocoa, I will take the empty cup away from you and pack up the thermos. I will then nuzzle your neck and whisper complimentary remarks into your ear, including, 'You are more beautiful than a thousand lakes,' 'You are extremely special to me,' and 'Your bone structure belongs in a museum.' This will make you wet."

Take it light, boys and girls. I'll talk to you when I get back.
