Valentino’s Birthday

May 6th, ‘un giorno indimenticabile’ for fans of Rudolph Valentino, has come and gone, marking the 117th anniversary of the birth of this legendary figure. In numerology, this number adds up to 9, which heralds completion ~ in this case the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.

Though for some of you I am preaching to the choir, the energy represented by the entirety of he who we once knew as Rudy is continuing to expand, evolve, and illuminate in matters of Love, his essence being the perfect ‘portavoce’ (spokesperson) for “what binds us to each other as well as to the planet we inhabit.”

Yes, ‘Rudy-ness’ ~ meaning living life from a position of maintaining an open heart has become the norm rather than the exception, at least that is how I am choosing to see it! And discussing Valentino, in whatever context and on anniversaries or any other day of the year, fosters introspection of our own Love quotients. Also our relationships, if they are in the picture! How best do we love ourselves as well as each other? Those are the types of questions that the Valentino energy, acting as a catalyst, encourages us to examine!

The pursuit of beauty and art, which is closely allied with Love and something that was also dear to Valentino, is personified on a number of the Facebook pages that I am fortunate to be associated with and there is one, in particular, that often emphasizes three letters frequently found together in many Italian words: A-M-O = AMO (I love.) And, we most certainly do!! Viva Rodolfo Valentino!
