It was Halloween night. 2007. John Park’s sister Monica instructed him to come over to her house. “My sister said, ‘Johnny, I’ve met your soul mate.’ I said, ‘I don’t want a soul mate.’ And she said, ‘She’s going to be here Halloween night.

The history of Valentine's Day is buried in myths and legends. One story is that St. Valentine was jailed by the Roman emperor Claudius II for illegally marrying young people when the emperor had declared no marriages for the army-age men of the empire. Love kept getting in the way of his soldiers' ability to fight. Feb. 14 was the feast of Juno, the goddess of marriage, and so we have the day and the occasion forever tied together. Interesting, but all this has little to do with tomorrow's celebration of love and the ones you love.

Jennifer K Mahal Of all the fairy tales ballet companies deal with, there is something about "Swan Lake" that makes it a standard.

Celebrating my 62nd birthday this week, I pray I’ve learned that:  Maturity has more to do with what you’ve learned from your experiences and what they have taught you than your age.  Our background and circumstances influence who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.  It is taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.  It is a lot easier to react than it is to think.  It takes years to build trust and seconds to destroy it.  Learning to forgive, especially myself, takes practice.

Lining the Teen Center bulletin board like so much literary wallpaper are critiques of novels, nonfiction and biographies enjoyed by participants of "Book Raiders Dig Reading," the 2002 summer reading program for seventh- through 12th-graders.

Lolita Harper One. Four. Three. John Rothfuss shared the secret code with the hundreds of sympathizers who attended his wife's funeral Friday afternoon at Pacific View Memorial Park and Mortuary. It was how Jessica Rothfuss would tell her husband, "I love you," without any words. One letter in "I," four in "love" and three in "you." The signal would flash from the sidelines of the baseball diamond, the back of their motorcycle or in a dark movie theater, he said.

When Lysander, in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” observed, “The course of true love never did run smooth,” he pretty much nailed what playwrights before (a few) and since (a plethora) have summoned as a central theme. Romantic involvement has long served as fodder for the writer’s wit, and lately some modern scribes have zeroed in on that topic, the most successful being Stephen Sondheim in “Company.” Close behind, however, are Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts, who created a series of musical vignettes titled “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.

In his first encyclical -- the highest form of papal writing -- Pope Benedict XVI wrote about the meanings of love, and said that physical love, when reduced to pure sex, becomes a debased commodity, "a mere 'thing' to be bought and sold." To reach a higher, fuller meaning of love, one must enhance it by spiritual, selfless love for God and others. He argued that the word "love" has become too common and misused and needs to be restored to its "original splendor." Do you agree with the pope's assessment?
