Happy Valentine's Day

Just a rose...
Photo by alex.tango.fuego

I titled this one "just a rose...". Very original, huh? But in fact, it's not just a rose, nor just any rose. It's a very special rose, one of a dozen, the most beautiful one, that stood out from the others unique in its shade of red. Special not just in its intrinsic beauty, but in the context in which it, and its sister roses, were given.

Elizabeth & Alan gave these to Kim on the occasion of her performance at a patron's house concert a couple of weeks ago. It was wonderful to meet them, and see our mutual friend Pat, and share some nice dances during their visit. Sweet, and too short.

It's a beautiful thing when beautiful roses come into your life.
