ROMANCE! Discussion Today at the 24th Æther Salon

Today we will discuss such excellent topics as the social season, debutantes, appropriate gifts to give while courting, the etiquette of romance, the silent languages, engagement, marriage, and private passions.  

It is my honor to be part of this very fine New Babbage institution.  Hopefully we'll see you there!

Happy Valentine's Day!

O my luve is like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June:
O my luve is like the melodie,
That's sweetly played in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.
Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
And I will luve thee still my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only luve!
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile.
 Robert Burns

I am very much looking forward to a discussion of the art of romance in Victorian times with you.
