Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is weird day, to say the least. There are those that are not involved in a relationship, that absolutely dread Valentine’s Day. There are others that are in unhappy relationships, that seemingly do not care one way or the other, stating that “It is just another day.” The final group are in love and thoroughly enjoy the gift giving and romance of the day.

I hope everyone that reads this is in love.

As an author / researcher, I can tell you all about what chemicals are involved in the creation of the feeling of being in love… but not today. My book covers that nicely. Instead I will suggest that we should all do something special for the ones we love- INCLUDING OURSELVES.

If you are presently not in a relationship, treat yourself to some self-love. Run a bath, light some candles, pour some wine and pamper yourself. YOU ARE AWESOME and you deserve a day just like the rest. Buy yourself some dark chocolate(s), feed yourself a great meal, read a book and watch a favorite old movie. I recommend Casa Blanca. The upside of not having a significant other is that you can have a great day and evening without having to get dressed up and you can have a good cry at the end of the film without being judged.

Enjoy today.

About the Author E. A. Barker is an under-achieving, occasionally brilliant, man-child now in mid-life who can get into High IQ sperm-banks the world over. He is a keen observational analyst, satirist, humorist, and researcher. He lacks doctorates in psychiatry, psychology, psychotherapy, medicine, genetics, theology, political science, sociology and physics and is completely okay with this; yet he is willing to challenge these experts to wake up and do better. E. A. believes he is an average guy in mid-life who has led a mostly average life. His readers may not agree with his assessment. The single biggest difference between him and most other people is his relentless pursuit of knowledge. Throughout his life he never stopped asking the simplest question: Why? E. A. thinks of himself as a collector of ideas and a purveyor of dot connections. He attempts to present his findings in an entertaining fashion in an effort to encourage people to read—especially men who are reading far too little these days. E. A. Barker is an advocate of education for its ability to affect societal reform and actively promotes the idea that a global conscience is possible.
