Today, this Wednesday…Of ashes and Of hearts…

We recognize the sacred beliefs of many in our community as Lent starts, as well as the St. Valentine’s story that engulfs this day, however it is actualized. You can research the Roman priest, the emperor Claudias, 3rd century AD, the martyrdom, the honoring, February 14th, the Christian Church…the reality, the fables, the commercialization of this day…Today is not just another Wednesday. With that said,

aaduna will do what it does best…present creative work.

A Poem for Valentine’s Day 20-chai
by Daniel Ross Goodman

Pleasanter than sugar,
finer than wine,
with beautiful middot
and a soul most divine,

amiable and cheerful,
and sunny and humble,
when she was diverted to Harrisburg
she didn’t even grumble;

unselfish and considerate,
and sensitive and caring,
she embodies the virtue
of constantly sharing;

loving to her family
and joyful with her friends,
the boundaries of her goodness
recognize no ends;

intelligent and eloquent,
compassionate and thoughtful,
as spiritually gifted
