Cupid the cute one

As we all know and have been vehemently reminded in every possible media, tomorrow is valentines. I am celebrating it in style this year...in fact this years celebrations will be a lot merrier than last years because i was as miserable as you can imagine and i was in a so called relationship. Alas..those days are gone and i intend to enjoy my self by drinking plenty of mojitos and lots of chocolate. Me and my girls are going into town tomorrow night for a night out to remember. To all of you Happy Valentines day, whatever you do...have fun. No moping allowed.


I leave you with this, by the great woman herself...the one and only Maya Angelou


We, unaccustomed to courage
Exiles from delight
Live coiled in shells of loneliness
Until love leaves its high holy temple
And comes into our sight
To liberate us into life.

Love arrives
And in its train come ecstasies
Old memories of pleasure
Ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
Love strikes away the chains of fear
From our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
We dare be brave
And suddenly we see
That love costs all we are
And will ever be.
Yet it is only love
Which sets us free.

  2. Enjoy dearest. Drink a glass of mojito for me cuz you know I am going to be in class for 10 hours. yes class on saturday and sunday and monday to friday. Seriously my life sucks. Happy V day in advance. I adore that poem men, I have written it down and swallowed it whole and it is being secreted into my veins, my capillaries carrying it into my heart. It must become a part of me.
