A Love of Learning

Posted by Dirck on 14 February, 2020

It will probably come as no surprise that I rather like Valentine’s Day, because I’m in a splendid long-term relationship with someone who shares many of my interests, and I hers. We follow, as closely as we can, the model of the healthiest relationship ever to appear on network television.

Gomez and Morticia Addams, from original TV show

We occasionally argue over who fits which role better, inconclusively. She’s more likely to chat with a stranger, I like fencing far more than she.

Even during the single periods of my life, though, I wasn’t down on Valentines. The idea of a day devoted to expressions of affection, especially in the relatively uptight European and European-influenced society I live it seems a good one. So, before I run today’s educational film, I’ll just mention that there’s a lot of non-erotic forms of love, and if you’re feeling any of them, why not take today to express them?

Today’s pen, which I quite like: Parker 51
Today’s ink, from which I take a measure of satisfaction: Skrip black
