Local bookstore chain Copperfield’s asked people to submit love notes for posting on its website yesterday (Valentine’s Day). Mine was among those selected. Here’s what I wrote:
Stretched out on the leather couch you found for our living room when we bought our home, wearing a pair of red fleece pajamas you gave me when my hair hardly had any gray, sipping a kombucha drink you bought me at Oliver’s, and warmed by an oak and almond wood fire you built for me before you turned in tonight, I see the signs of your devotion in every room and in each moment of our lives. Do I need flowers, chocolates, fancy dinners out? Nah. I have you, my one and only Jim, taking my hand, leading the way, embodying love again, again and over again.
