One would think that a weeks worth of snow days would permit me to keep up on blogging, but not so! Thus, here is yesterday’s post, today.

This is the Valentine’s Day edition:

I am wondering if there is a connection between the origins of the heart as the seat of love and the butterflies in the stomach/ funny feeling in the chest feeling that comes with nervousness, excitement, longing, general “lovey-dubby” feelings, ect.

I’ve read that in certain ancient cultures the heart was deemed the seat of knowledge. But why? And is that also connected to why the heart is associated with love? I also wonder if this is a learned association…would someone never exposed to the idea hold their hands crossed over their heart and say, “I love you” ?

What are you wondering about this week?
