It's not February 14, I know. :-) However, It's never early for romance. Love should be celebrated every day. It sounds corny, but it's not less true because of it.

And the celebration of love shouldn't include only the romantic love between life partners. Our possibility to love, and the very experience of somebody else loving us, are completely and utterly amazing gifts. I guess we take that for granted.
As the great Morrie Schwartz said, quoting the great W.H.Auden: ''We most love each other or perish''.
I know this is the era of internet. I know that an E-mail is so easy to write, and it comes with the same easiness to the receiver (it takes an itsy, bitsy 'click'). However, writing a letter with your hand is very personal. It shows that you devoted a certain time to that act. Beloved person can cherish it. Literally.

The virtual world is amazing, but the charm of life cannot be replaced... Find it. Find it for you and your beloved ones. :-) 

What about sending a love letter like this one? Actually, it would be a letter of love. Because you can give it to anybody you love. 

I also like this one, with yellow roses. I don't agree that yellow flowers are a symbol of jealousy. It stands for love and friendship. I don't approve bad mouthing of flowers. :-)

How about including some poetry? I found this little book years ago. It's called ''For You, the Hundred Most Beautiful Love Poems of the World''.

This is from ''The Divine Comedy'' or Divina Commedia, by Dante Alighieri. You see here the version in Serbian language. I love poetry. 

You can surprise somebody with a gift. It doesn't have to be expensive. If you make a present, you can't go wrong . It can be the tiniest thing in the world, it doesn't matter. You are not giving a material present, really. You are giving something that will be a little reminder of you.

Or you can prepare a meal for you and your beloved ones. You can nourish them with both, some great food and your presence. :-)

Just love each other. No one can show your emotions instead of you. And no one can be a better version of yourself than you. :-)
