I am delighted you are here. 40+ artists, writers, teachers, adventurers, coaches, and creatives have created a connected collage of love across the blogosphere. When you scroll down you will see links to all their contributions. There is so much sparkling love to take in! Take your time. This page won’t go away. Bookmark it and come back. Savor it. Celebrate it. Share it.
Most of us long for love, look out for love, worry we are too late for love, but not enough of us live love. Love is here right now for the taking and the giving. The source is abundant, but sometimes we are separate from it, sometimes for good reason. And so we—the Love Sparks Superhero’s—are here to help.
In the words of poet Aaron Jafferis:
And where we touch down, currents connect,
electricity pops and whirs; and we are its conductors
electric and true. We take the tired and grounded world,
shake it, wake it up and make it new.
Because we are all electric, like lightning is electric.
Not grounded, but charged: lightbulbs about to hatch.
We are the synapse, the charge, the wire, the match,
the spark in this dark room that makes the fire catch.

Love Sparks Dedication
February 14 is my favorite day of the year and has been for many years not because of chocolate exchanges or wishes for kisses, but because of the one and only Valentine Phantom.
I dedicate this festival to the Valentine Phantom’s unbelievably great love project. You can read the story and see it in action on Matt Gartland’s Random Acts of Greatness website by clicking here. I promise you will be glad you did.
