This is the first Valentines that I actually tried to avoid. Of course it was because I selfishly didn’t think I had a Valentine. In fact, my mom, my sister and my dear friend Laura were my Valentines this year. The greatest Valentines gift was spending the day in Pt. Reyes….my true love.

Laura and I spent the night at a silent retreat center and the next day walked for hours. I could not get over one Oak Tree and this huge circular patch of grass surrounded my massive redwood and pine trees.

Valentines day this year confirmed that the greatest gift is being reminded that I love myself unconditionally. With this feeling in my heart, I can be loving to all. We are everything we could ever imagine.
