It used to be that a Valentine would profess his (or her) love but never his identity. When I was a kid, my dad would perpetuate this tradition of mystery by leaving cards on the breakfast table on February 14th, that, using squiggly handwriting, were clearly from some unknown admirer. I loved this about my dad. Our current Valentine’s Day, however, is perhaps less about the unknown and more about a depth of love. It is a day to be passionate about your spouse, your lover, your mother or father, your kids or, as is my case on this Valentine’s Day, the beach. It is joyous and powerful to profess your love out loud.
