“Happy Valentine’s Day”, my wife placed a red envelope in my hand as I stirred groggily from sleep. “Is it really that day?” I asked, not feeling at all guilty that I’d totally forgotten the occasion. I thought it was still the 13th. Oops!!
I read the card and closed my eyes, savouring it, then I decided to share the vague impressions of a dream that I’d just woken up from. “I am triumphant,” I said to her. “I managed to do something that nobody else has ever done before. It feels like a game was being played and I achieved something remarkable in it that changes everything.”
Yes, I was elated from the dream and loved the synchronicity of having this card to mark that.
We shared a long moment of not speaking, just being together, and then got up from bed. We are quite short on conversations generally – when you share things in the way that we do then there’s not much need for words.
Still, as she ran her shower, I hastened to the adjoining office and switched on my computer, intending to send her a Valentine’s e-card. We have an agreement that we don’t spend much, if at all, on cards. For us, the most important thing is to share how we feel in the moment. And that’s something that I’m very bold in doing.
Years ago I would hand-make cards using digital photos from our photo gallery but I’m less inspired to do that anymore. I’m more inclined to employ the talents of people who are skilled in graphic design. And I wanted the best.
A few minutes later and I clicked on the blue mountain website, found the magical fairy card, added my words and sent it. I know that the magic we can generate is so beautifully touching and effective that it completely encapsulates and offers our feelings, beyond any words that accompany this special day.
But don’t feel left out. Click the link above and know that I sent it to you too – look it’s in your etheric mailbox. Did you get it?
