"Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now."--from The World According to Mister Rogers
Well, it's February and time for the Winter installment of Alexandria Quarterly. Because of everyone that follows us and sends in poems and art and stories, we're growing by leaps and bounds. While the rest of the world goes crazy, we can still love. Love like crazy. It's the month of Valentine's Day after all, and on February 14th we'll be putting out a special supplement to the issue which will include all of the AQP LOVE LOVE LOVE VALENTINE EXCHANGE finalists. Our winners, Devon Balwit, Monika Zobel, and Marne Wilson, have a page here in this issue, along with a special valentine from Brian Henry. And check out the AQ Store page to purchase your very own valentine (pssst...there's a new t-shirt in there too...). Please enjoy the issue, have a happy February, and keep on loving!
