Love Is in the Air

I'm a few hours late to greet you for Valentine's Day, but love works for me 24/7 365 days a year. You too?

To get you in the mood for this theme, right click and open in a new tab to listen to this sweet tune.

Kathmandu, 2010

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring. - Oscar Wilde
As sweet and musical
As bright Apollo's lute, strung with his hair;
And when Love speaks, the voice of all the gods
Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony. - W. Shakespeare
There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.- Friedrich Nietzsche
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart. - Marcus Aurelius

Linking with Ruby Tuesday and MyWorld Tuesday.

Oh my, this song takes me back -- way back!!

I sometimes schedule my posts for a certain time then come back to link with the meme and visit others. You can also join in at any time for the signs, signs meme - it is open for several days (since I can't figure out how to put a time limit on it!) I hope you can contribute as I bet you have some very interesting signs in many different scripts and languages.

Sweet photo but they look very high up . . .

And 365 (or 366!) is what it should be. I felt sorry in a way for several male colleagues today whom I saw running around like headless chickens at lunchtime. They all came back with more or less the same chocolate box... Isn't that sad?
I loved that song and still do! And your photo is amazing for today (sorry, your yesterday!)

True love is the best thing that could happen to anyone. Happy V Day.

Carolyn Ford said...

Oh, you are SO right...year round love and caring...wouldn't that be grand world-wide?! Happy V Day to you!

Halcyon said...

A lovely photo. And I definitely think a celebration of love should not be limited to one day a year!

EG Wow said...

What a lovely capture of a most special sight. Nepal is one of the spots in the world I dream of visiting. I love the people there. I follow many of the Mr. Everest climbers’ blogs so feel like I know them. Thanks for the wonderful shot and quotes.

Yep, me too 365/24/7 -- I'm not crazy about artificial holidays! Your picture and words are terrific for, as you say, any time.

Francisca - Thanks so much for your encouraging comments on my blog. I will certainly check out that 'Print Your blog' site. I didn't know you could do it that easily - tempting! I know what you mean about keeping up with all the posts. I follow quite a few blogs and sometimes it's a struggle to keep up, so I don't always comment either. I love seeing the world through your eyes. You introduce me to so many new places and aspects of life. I'm glad to have linked with you.
