Covered Market on Valentine's Day
Preparing for a busy day in large.
Hmmm, the market was rather nauseating today, and not for gory reasons (although those were as raw as usual!). Many of the shops had gone all out with Valentine's Day "tie-ins": who'd have thought that meat could be so "romantic"...? Boxed red roses, heart decorations everywhere, red-coloured signs and advertising. Does it work?
I left feeling even more steely in my resolve not to mention the l-word today: it feels so awfully devalued, and expressing it on such an occasion would feel dangerous because it might seem obligatorily trotted out and hollow compared to the feeling.
A different kind of heart in the butcher's window...

The fish at the right looks like it wants a hug
