Valentine's Day

  • There are a lot of things that you can do alone. You can sail solo around the world, enjoying sunrises and sunsets in the middle of blue salty nowhere. You can take a nap by yourself, enjoying a whole warm blanket and a big bed.  

    But what you can never do alone is dancing a tango, the dance of love. Because it takes two to tango. And even if you don’t dance, it still takes two – you and your second half – to love.

    Have you already guessed the song quoted here? Written and published back in 1952 by Al Hoffman and Dick Manning, the song “Takes Two to Tango” owes its half century’s popularity to Pearl Bailey, Louis Armstrong, and Ray Charles, whose recordings still keep reminding us about the essence of true love.

    True love always takes two.

  • When Christmas holidays with their cozy home hustle and warm family dinners are gone, when there seems to be no more place for wonders and winter weekdays look all the same, – St. Valentine’s Day will come to cheer us up and once again adorn our homes and town shop windows with hearts, angels, flowers and other cute little things. The morning of February 14th will make us remember how important it is to tell our second halves that we love them and how wonderful it is to know that we are loved.
