New Header ~ since the season of love is descending upon us!

It’s Our New Seasonal Header ~ for Valentine’s Day!

Yep, it’s almost here - the heartfelt (or dreaded) Valentine’s day - and we have a new header to celebrate its seasonal return. I use any excuse to put up a new one!

It is a cropping of the gorgeous traditional oil painting, The Birth of Venus by William Adolphe Boughereau from 1879. Since Venus is the goddess of love and Cupid is her side kick, we thought it was a nice header even though it’s “fluffier” than our usual choices. I have added some lettering so that Layers of Thought is still recognizable, just in case you stop on by to make a comment.

We have a variety of things to celebrate for “love day” - a giveaway for a book called Lovesick (a thriller about what appears to be love gone wrong); a guest post from the author Spencer Seidel; and a review for a non-fiction book about love called All There Is by Dave Isay (which John’s mum gobbled up in a few short sittings.)

And who can guess what the blog fates will be delivering between now and then, so the count down begins for little hearts and arrows everywhere.

Have a good Wednesday.

Great pick for Valentine's Day! I double checked the background to see if you snuck anything in, but looks untampered with. Nice choice, even with no gargoyles hiding behind the cupids! ;)
