Hello young lovers wherever you are,

Hello not-so-young lovers with hearts fixed on the prize of growing 
older together, one day at a time, come what may,

Hello to those flying solo, learning to love just the feel of being 
human,

Hello to those head over heels in a tangle of a wrecked bed, blurring 
ego boundaries with an eager protagonist, drunk on it,

Hello to those who could never live with another human being and are 
okay with that knowledge (Fran Lebowitz),

Hello to those married with young children, running their domestic 
marathon,

Hello to those in love with the sky only, the very breathable air, 
restlessly content with this earthly mix of sometimes joy, sometimes 
longing, sometimes loneliness, sometimes surprising laughter,

Hello to those in love with the whole human predicament,

Hello to the broke, the well-heeled, the lucky, the lost, the quiet, 
the gifted, the empty-handed, the adopted, the beginners, the almost 
finished, the starting over, the music makers, and those with the gift 
of hearing and receiving the music,

Hello.

Happy St. Valentine’s Day to you all.

(C’mon St. Valentine, how ‘bout a high five…)

Just wanted to pass along a few dates so you could put a few xoxo’s on 
the 2012 calendar.

Karin and I are taking our (infamous) love songs (some new, some old, 
some works in progress) all the way to Texas this weekend, and then 
Minnesota the following weekend. Anxious to make a little hopefully 
lovely ruckus with you nearby.

And then as the weather begins to lean toward Spring, we’ve earmarked 
weekends here and there to slip back out to California, Florida, 
Georgia, Illinois, Indiana and points beyond. Mostly short trips, just 
long enough to keep the gears oiled, as we will be recording as well.

Anyway, this is a Want Ad: Fellow lovers of life needed to fill a few 
velvet seats, hum along, laugh at our off-kilter stage banter, grin at 
our jokes, cheer for the piano with the broken heart. Tickets 
available! OvertheRhine.com for more details.

Peace like a river, Love like an ocean,

Linford & Karin
