While I'm quite tempted to discuss my feelings about the absurdities of Valentine's Day, I'll restrain myself and simply wish you all a happy day. In many places in Latin America, today isn't merely about chocolates and roses and people don't become overly depressed or bitter if they happen to be alone. Instead, it's a day to celebrate all of your loved ones, especially friendships. I find particular beauty in this.
So to my friends scattered across the globe, feliz dia!
