Be forewarned. It must be the official start of the Valentines Day marketing blitz. Walking with my dog around the neighborhood today, I was bombarded with multiple hearts sightings. A worker was stringing up heart-shaped decorations on the terrace of a local restaurant. In the window of a fitness store, they were advertising heart shakes, and a comedy club was promoting its Valentines show with, you guessed it, hearts. I’m not seriously bothered by this holiday, but the motif is so predictable, and it gets old, fast. As a remedy, I’ve been collected inspiring heart art, which I’ll be posting regularly. If you come across any great images, send them my way.
