Love Cultivates

“Love does not dominate; it cultivates.”
~  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Considering that a high percentage of couples break up, and most of marriages end up in a dramatic divorce – although this happens less frequently now in Spain, due to the crisis -, I suggest the celebration of Saint Valentine´s day with moderation in the manners and a certain touch of realism in the general focus. All this, in spite of the continuous messages and proposals that keep coming from shops and brands, excellent ambassadors of contemporary romanticism but perfect ignorants of the real meaning of love.

Considerando que un altísimo porcentaje de parejas rompen, y buena parte de los matrimonios se separan de forma dramática – aunque menos que antes de la crisis, dicen las cifras -, sugiero la celebración de este día de San Valentín con moderación en las formas y cierto realismo en el enfoque, a pesar de ser lo contrario que proponen los comercios, excelentes embajadores del romanticismo contemporáneo y perfectos desconocedores del significado real del amor.
