In the February issue of Brave Wings, we have an excellent interview with author and SockKids creator, Michael John Sullivan. We also have thoughts about love and romance in articles by regular contributors, Amy Henry, David Antrobus, Michael Lamptey, and editor-in-chief, Kyrian Lyndon.
In this particular blog, put together by Kyrian, and devoted to Valentine’s Day, we have poetry, recipes, movie suggestions, a romantic music playlist, and more thoughts on LOVE. Enjoy! And when you’re through, don’t forget to hit the home tab and check out the articles mentioned above.
Old, new, and everything in between from Kyrian’s iTunes playlist—click the bars in the upper left corner for an endless list of V-day mood songs.

More thoughts on love:
“There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
“Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.”―Khalil Gibran
“Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire.”―François VI de la Rochefoucault
“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you … I could walk through my garden forever.”― Alfred Tennyson
“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” ― Anaïs Nin
“The very first moment I beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone.”― Jane Austen, Love and Friendship
“Thus with a kiss I die.”―William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
“How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.”―Victor Hugo
