St. Valentine

O You Whom I Often and Silently Come

O YOU whom I often and silently come where you are, that I may be with you;
As I walk by your side, or sit near, or remain in the same room with you,
Little you know the subtle electric fire that for your sake is playing within me.

-- Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

The Carl Sagan Radio Lab valentine I posted last year is still the most romantic story I've ever heard.

Happy Valentine's Day, Em! Hope you're feeling a lot of love today and that you get to do whatever makes your heart truly happy.

I love radio lab, but I think I've missed this one. Excited to check it out during naps this afternoon!

p.s. did you know I'm related to Whitman? I have his grandmother's rocking chair in my living room. Crazy, right?!?
