Valentine's Day approaches. The girl walks to town and searches the stationery store for a card ...a special card. Not the cheap, paper-thin Valentines that come 20 per box. Banal pictures of flowers or baby animals would not do.
Later, she wishes she'd been so smart and lucky. For better or worse, she remains... emotionally impractical.
A willing passenger in make-shift rockets, soaring into the sky...crashing to earth again.
Allowing love to make her do strange things --for boys with nice hair, for friends and relations. For total strangers. A power beyond explanation -- which remains to this day, a deep and profound mystery.
