I must be getting old...

Valentine's Day never really meant anything to me before...either I didn't care or I was perfectly happy for it to roll around.

This year it sucks. And not just for me--I guess I have gained a sense of empathy for people who are not happy all the time. I don't think I've felt this way before. Maybe a sign of getting old and jaded? Or perhaps just old?

So - j - you do have a melancholy side. Don't be ashamed of it, man. It's all cool. Valentine's day is for the ladies, and it can be especially unpleasant for the fellas if the ladies ain't happy - know what I'm saying?

As fellow melancholy, I recommend reviewing Ecclesiastes.

Remember, a sad face is good for the heart.

But be sure to stop reading after that book. Don't read any further!

Haha! Thanks, David. That made me smile.

(But does that mean the comment encouraging frowning was, in the end, counterproductive? Sigh...)

Nah, that's Ecclesiastes 7:3. Solomon encourages us to frown. The Choir has a song called Sad Face that they wrote after several miscarriages.
