Valentine's Day 2/14/2012
Happy Valentine's day: In a modern world full of temptation many men and women have secret loves. President Jimmy Carter had admitted to 'lust in his heart.' I'll just assume without taking names that each of you have secret loves, and most of these remain unrequieted and secret. Although, many guys will assume you're in love with them, but that's another issue. Oh, you may call it a crush. It could even be just a normal attraction caused by being human. It may be 'that' cover guy on the latest romance.
So for Valentine's day, I'd like you to picture a hero or heroine who for one reason or another keeps his or her secret love hidden until the third act.
I confess. I love Doris Day.
Here she is as Calamity Jane singing Secret Love.
As a side note: after the release of this song, it became a huge hit in the underground gay community of Manhattan, NY (and no, I wasn't there and am not gay). The song struck a chord with all communities, some not knowing why. So look within yourself. Do you have a secret love? Well, it might not be best to tell me on this blog, because your 'secret would be no secret anymore.' But you could email me privately and confess. I'll give you absolution and a promise not to tell a soul.
I've got a valentine's gift for each of you. Until midnight 2/14/2012 my first novel, Neanderthals and the Garden of Eden, is free on Kindle.
Homework: Well this is about male POV so . . . Who's better able to keep a secret, a man or a woman?
