The Ragged End of Love

It's the day after Valentine's Day, so I send you to the belated Valentine feature at Escape Into Life, The Ragged End of Love, with two love poems, one by Jessy Randall and one by Robert McDonald, a P.S. that sends you to "Love Story" by Jeannine Hall Gailey, and fabulous art by Anka Zhuravleva.

What you see here, fittingly, is Venus.

And it's Galileo's birthday, so I encourage you to listen to this lovely science/love song performed by Eddi Reader and RTE Concert Orchestra, "Galileo (Someone Like You)" at youtube.

Have a good hump of the week.

With intention of not sounding insensitive, Anka Zhuravleva's 'Tragic Sense of Life', Miquel de Uno Muno, has provided us with beautiful/wonderful art.
Not saying that if the tragedy and subsequent road she's taken providing us with this poignant manifestation in an art form, that she couldn't have provided us with similar contributions but this form of art has taken place, I think, as a result of her life's experience. I know this may sound simplistic and evident but sometimes these experiences cause complete implosion or a 'shut down'.

Thank you for introducing her.

Hope your volleyballers, Tony also, did well :)

These are wonderful poems. I have totally seen that Temple of Doom valentine--very romantic, actually :).
