Valentine’s Wishes

Today is Valentine’s Day. It’s also the first anniversary of this blog.

When I wrote my first post last year, I didn’t notice the significance of the date. Serendipity or stupidity? I’m not sure but it’s a nice coincidence.

Hugh at GapingVoid is on a slightly Quixotic Valentine’s Quest. He suggests we shouldn’t just think about Valentine’s Day in terms of “the boy/girl sex thing” – but a bigger idea of love, one that we can all share. I like that idea.

Of course, I don’t just mean romantic, sexual love. I mean human connection. “Agape”. If you don’t have that, like Saint Paul once said, you have nothing. (GapingVoid)

Love begets love

The last 12 months of blogging have been an unexpected adventure to me. The thing I didn’t realise when I started was how great it would be for connecting with and sometimes meeting so many generous, interesting and inspiring people. Thank you to everyone who has read, commented, linked and otherwise inspired Wishful Thinking during the past year.

Spread the love…
