Saturday Single No. 433

It’s Valentine’s Day, and I thought about repeating in this space the Valentine’s Day post I first wrote in 2009 and reposted here last year. As it happens, during our church’s annual Valentine’s Day concert last Sunday, I read a slightly edited version of that post and was heartened by the response from the other members of our Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. I’m not sure I can do any better in digging into the meaning of the day than I did with that post.

At the same time, I’m also very aware that, either tomorrow or Monday, it will be fifteen years since I wandered into a chat room for social issues and met the Texas Gal. So it’s only right that I should choose as a Saturday Single this morning a track that’s symbolized for us, right from the first few weeks, this joyous, nurturing and loving journey on which we’ve found ourselves.

That’s why Van Morrison’s “Into The Mystic” – from his 1970 album Moondance – is today’s Saturday Single. But before we listen, I do have one thing I’d like to repeat from that Valentine’s Day post I shared here twice before and that I shared with my fellowship friends last Sunday: “Embrace love, wherever you find it.”
