Love And Death Are In The Air…

What We Talk About When We’re Dying

Kerry Egan, a hospice chaplain, admits that, much of the time, it’s not God:

Mostly, they talk about their families: about their mothers and fathers, their sons and daughters. They talk about the love they felt, and the love they gave.  Often they talk about love they did not receive, or the love they did not know how to offer, the love they withheld, or maybe never felt for the ones they should have loved unconditionally…

Why is it you might wonder, that thoughts of death and darkness seem to prevail at this time of year. The bitter eternal chill of wintertime?  The deathly silence of the long dark nights? Hahahahaha… No, silly. This is the time of year in which we pause before the graveyard of life’s most magical dream to try once more in abject futility to bury it once and for all. Valentine’s Day is coming!

The signs are Everywhere!

Don’t they Always?  Well I’m here to tell you, Nothing says Love more then a gift of free chocolates, unless its the text message from your soulmate informing you that they’re seeing someone else now, and would greatly appreciate it if you stopped leaving messages on their answering machine.

Will there be a Fifth Annual Casa del Garrett Valentine’s Day Poster Contest this year?  Well…I don’t know…  I mean…you’re very nice.  But…let’s think about it before we take it to the next level.  I’ll call you sometime.
