A Post-Valentine’s Day Discussion

I love this quote. Found it on Instagram which has the most insightful quotes from different sources. Next time I’m at a clinic or trying to put a story together, I’m going to look for that secret order.

So, it’s the Saturday after Valentine’s Day. How is the world feeling? Abbi is well rested because that’s how she spent her holiday. Catching up on much needed rest. I do hope that if you had plans, all went fabulously. And if you haven’t done anything yet, there’s still the weekend. Get out, go forth and have fun.

I guess it’s time for another Abbi chat. Today’s discussion is, of course, Valentine’s Day. I had another post set to go yesterday but I pulled it. (I know, I’ve done that before.) Didn’t feel right. I kept asking myself: Why aren’t you talking about Valentine’s Day?

Good question. No pithy answer forthcoming at the moment.

I did ask others about their plans for Valentine’s Day. Many didn’t have any plans or they were waiting until the weekend to celebrate. My favorite response came from a nurse practitioner. He and his wife were exchanging gifts instead of going out. Simple gifts. Things each has said they’d wanted. He wanted an extension cord. I forgot to ask why. I will need to revisit the discussion with him.

Yes, this NP had a different perspective but I think that’s because of his background. At one time, he was a patient on dialysis waiting for a kidney. He now spends his time treating people who are going through the same experiences as him. And, I have to say he’s very good at it.

Holidays should be about sharing. Michelle Obama on Instagram talked about sharing the holiday with her family. I know Valentine’s Day is usually about boy and girl but it’s also about love. On Valentine’s Day you can do what you want — spend time with family, sleep the night away, have a party with friends — there’s no set code to follow.

I am going to end with a link to another site with a great quote from E.E. Cummings. Here is the link: https://www.nitch.com/notes E.E. Cummings is after Herman Hesse.

I learned about Nitch from Instagram as well. Trying to find out who created and runs the site. Just curious who out there had a hyperdrive pre-installed in their brain to know this much information. Or maybe it’s given to them from someone else. Or it’s just plain easy to find the quotes. I’m known the overlook the obvious at times. I’ll be curious to dig in and find out when I have time.

The point of the E.E. Cummings quote (besides the fact that it is very good) is I know people in my writing world have commented on how hard it is to write. I think the quote is quite revealing on that subject.

So, here’s what’s up in the queue:

A list of Abbi’s imperfections. Nobody is perfect and I think an honest list of my not-so-perfect ways will be an excellent example. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another New Amsterdam DOI update. Cast and show are kicking butt.

Hero’s Journey — Magneto style

It’s the end of the blog and I’m still not sure why I didn’t want to talk about Valentine’s Day. I’ll let you know when I figure it out. Enjoy the weekend.

Embrace Hope.
