I have never been a big fan of Valentines' Day, and the whole forced, over-romanticized, Hallmark-y-ness of it. And, fortunately for me, neither is Jen (although we have had a little fun with it, from time to time). . .
This year, though, I came across a delightful quote (actually, 1F sent it to me; I think she got it from 4M, along with a note to the effect that, "We're all doomed"), from one of my favorite authors, that somehow resonates with my experience of the wonderfulness of the love I've shared with my beloved wife for lo, these many years. . .
We are all a little weird and life's a little weird,
and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness
and call it Love.
-- Theodore Seuss Geisel
