valentine's day

San Valentino...doesn't it sound romantic said in Italiano?

 My husband and I dated while I lived in Vienna, Austria, and he lived in Toronto, Canada, at a time when there was no internet. We wrote love letters to each other. I kept every single letter he wrote to me. This piece is about those letters and our time living far away from each other.
