This Valentine's holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.- From Wikipedia

About creative love from a Painterly Visions interview with author, Eric Maisel..."Love rekindles meaning: falling back in love with art or with your own art replenishes meaning."

and today's quote at Creative Circle Cafe,
a Van Gogh Blues - Virtual Book Tour stop...

"That tenderness you speak of is the way that we keep ourselves gently in love with our work, our efforts, and our very self..."- Eric Maisel

Happy Valentine's Day!
