Music In my heart of hearts ... I believe in love. Maybe not the love-is-all-you-need schtick, but, whether it’s romantic or platonic love, the humans (and animals) in our lives make a sometimes harsh and inhospitable world infinitely more bearable. Even when our hearts inevitably get broken, these patched-together metaphorical organs often function more wisely and, sometimes, even more fully. Love is the drug and—even with its troublesome side effects—it comes highly recommended. Meditate on the many-splendored thing while listening to my Valentine’s Day playlist, Heart Set , below.
