Think outside the heart-shaped box this Valentine’s Day

Metro Newspaper Services.
Love is like a pill for valor. Once consumed, we become super-people able to do that which we never dreamed possible or would never dare to do otherwise. 
So what are you planning for Valentine’s Day?

How about tackling one of those home improvement projects you never had the confidence to do? 

No time? Wrap a ribbon around the supplies needed to do the project such as a can of paint in her favorite color or a that table saw he's been talking about. 

After Valentine’s Day it will be a project that you can do together.

So you think you can't cook. That might be true on any other day but, now that you have the power, why not flex your culinary muscles a little? Give the family recipe a try or at least surprise him/her with a meal from their favorite restaurant.

Date nights do not always have to include dinner and a movie. Check your community calendar for events you both would enjoy. Consider something different. Visit the local recreation department in your area and sign up for something the two of you can take together. 

Write a poem and seal it with a heart of wax or roll into a scroll and tie with a ribbon. Draw your inspiration from poets such as Elizabeth Alexander, Walt Whitman and local favorite M.L. Liebler, who was recently awarded the Barnes & Noble/Poets & Writers 2010 Writers for Writers Award.

I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel -- Audrey Hepburn.
