Love

 

Upon reflection this post captures the many dimensions of Valentine’s Day…

D’lovely is pragmatic and we both dislike the commmercialism of this day decicated to love.

We were in different cities,

so a phone call relaying the day’s events and Valentine’s wishes dealt with the moment.

I went out for dinner with two ‘blokes’,

and D’lovely watched his favourite TV show… tragic or real?!

Flowers OR chocolate (not as time sensitive)

await me later this week, when our diaries collide!

And of course I have got a love momento to share too!

love is in the generic viagra sample air

 

These beautiful Victorian Valentine’s Day cards remind me of the tradition.

The Story of Saint Valentine’s

My name is Valentine. I lived in Rome during the third century. At that time, Rome was ruled by an emperor named Claudius. I didn’t like Emperor Claudius, and I wasn’t the only one. A lot of people shared my feelings.

Claudius wanted to have a big army. He expected men to volunteer to join. Many men just did not want to fight in wars. They did not want to leave their wives and families. As you might have guessed, not many men signed up. This made Claudius furious. So what happened? He had a crazy idea. He thought that if men were not married, they would not mind joining the army. So Claudius decided not to allow any more marriages. Young people thought his new law was cruel. I thought it was preposterous! I certainly wasn’t going to support that law!

Did I mention that I was a priest? One of my favorite activities was to marry couples. Even after Emperor Claudius passed his law, I kept on performing marriage ceremonies — secretly, of course. It was really quite exciting. Imagine a small candlelit room with only the bride and order viagra 100 mg groom and myself. We would whisper the words of the ceremony, listening all the while for the steps of soldiers.

One night, we did hear footsteps. It was scary! Thank goodness the buy propecia at a discount couple I was marrying escaped in time. I was caught. (Not quite as light on my feet as I used to be, I guess.) I was thrown in jail and told that my punishment was death.

I tried to stay cheerful. And do you know what? Wonderful things happened. Many young people came to the jail to visit me. They threw flowers and notes up to my window. They wanted me to know that they, too, believed in love.

One of these young people was the daughter of the prison guard. Her father allowed her to visit me in the cell. Sometimes we would sit and talk for hours. She helped me to keep my spirits up. She agreed that I did the right thing by ignoring the Emperor and going ahead with the secret marriages. On the day I was to die, I left my friend a little note thanking her for her friendship and loyalty. I signed it, “Love from your Valentine.”

I believe that note started the custom of exchanging love messages on Valentine’s Day. It was written on the day I died, February 14, 269 A.D. Now, every year on this day, people remember. But most importantly, they think about love and where can i purchase propecia friendship. And when they think of Emperor Claudius, they remember how he tried to stand in the way of love,  and know that love can’t be beaten.

Give peace a chance

 

John Lennon’s songs continue to advocate for love and peace ~ what a beautiful gift to the world.

Imagine you can Give peace a chance…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the buy cheap viagra online online only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

Millions of people have remembered John Lennon today,

exactly 30 years after the former Beatle was murdered.

His widow Yoko Ono led the tributes, saying the world was still learning from his messages of peace.

She said: “On this tragic anniversary, please join me in remembering John with deep love and respect.

The world was lucky to have known him. We still learn so much from him today.

John, I love you.”

Strawberry Fields, Central Park’s memorial to John Lennon

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

1968 ~ The White Year

The Beatles began the year already atop the charts and back in the studio to produce both another #1 single ― “Lady Madonna” ― and lay the where can you buy viagra cheap foundation for the ambitious double White Album. They studied with the Maharishi in India, then hobnobbed with the Manhattan press as they launched their own Apple Corps company and record label.

In July, John’s art exhibit, “You Are Here (To Yoko Ono, From John Lennon)” opened at London’s Robert Fraser Gallery. John and Yoko release 365 white helium-filled balloons to launch the event.

On weekdays the band continues a busy slate of sessions for the White Album at Abbey Road studios. Inspired by concerns about the effects John Lennon’s estrangement from wife Cynthia is having on their young son Julian, Paul McCartney composes “Hey Jude” and the band works it up at Abbey Road, with the cameras of the British National Music Council capturing rehearsal takes for a documentary.

The Beatles, aka the White Album, is released in the U.K. on the 22nd November and sells a record two million copies in its first week. Its minimalist, all-white cover, embossed with the band’s name and 150mlg viagra sequentially numbered in its original editions, is a stark contrast to the colorful psychedelia of Sgt. Pepper and Magical Mystery Tour. The cover also echoes the album’s more organic approach to music. “We’ve tried to play more like a band this time,” Paul McCartney notes, “only using instruments when we had to, instead of just using them for the fun of it.”The packaging also contains a collage poster of the band, as well as four individual color portraits.

John Lennon speaks his mind in a revealing interview with Rolling Stone.

A week after the White Album debuts, John and Yoko release their experimental first album collaboration. Dubbed Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins, its cover – which depicts the couple in full frontal and rear nudity ― immediately becomes the most controversial in rock music history, with EMI and Capitol refusing to distribute it. Enclosed in a brown paper covering, only 5000 copies were originally released in Britain via alternate means, while in America the record variously charted at No. 124, was confiscated in some communities as obscene, and inspired a teenaged Cissy Spacek ― performing as ‘Rainbo’ ― to record a protest song about it, ”John You Went Too Far This Time.

December: At a Christmas charity art festival in London, John and Yoko make an appearance in matching white cloth sacks, and later distribute gifts to the children of Apple’s staff dressed in Santa Claus costumes.

In America, Wonderwall is released, the White Album is certified Gold, “Hey Jude” spends its final week in the Billboard Top 30.

Bed-Ins for Peace

During the Vietnam War, in 1969,

John Lennon and Yoko Ono held two week-long

Bed-Ins for Peace

in Amsterdam and Montreal,

which were their non-violent ways of protesting wars and promoting peace.
