Since It’s Valentine’s Day …

Sentimentality, like the use of cliché, is one of those arch crimes of the writing world you’re supposed to avoid at all costs, although I confess I like to lapse into it, even wallow in it, occasionally.

But at certain times of the year, standards are allowed, even expected, to slip, and romantic bathos briefly flourishes. (Check out the movies that show up on TV this Valentine’s Day weekend.)

So, taking advantage of this, here’s a reposting of a little schmaltz from the musical world, the lovely, tear inducing, The Wind Beneath My Wings (in a Dan Coates arrangement).
