The 2013 Royal Academy of Bards Valentine Special

Welcome to the annual Academy of Bards' celebration of Valentine's Day. This will be our 15th year in existence and with that comes all the bumps and bruises of life. Yet, because of this feeling - sometimes slight, sometimes overpowering - called love, we keep picking ourselves up, brushing off the past and ready to begin again. Today, we have invited some long time favorites to give us an escape from our everyday lives and to transport us to a place they've created. I hope you enjoy the stories and take time to send these authors a note letting them know.

I came across this quote this morning I wish to share -

True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be and will not be. - Unknown.

Let us be accepting of true love - no matter in which form it arrives.

     ~ Stephanie


First and foremost, it was the love story. It was two friends, and they had a lot of fun together, and they kicked ass!
