Here is a belated Valentine for all of you who have ever been in love.  It is an oportunity to step into the past in a profound way.  Watching and listening to it made me so grateful to artists of all sorts who bring us this kind of magic.  It all started with Herman Hupfeld who wrote AS TIME GOES BY.  Then there is the genious of Frank Sinatra whose voice because of all its resonance over time touches so many emotional buttons.  Ingrid Bergman is  limpidly beautiful in every scene and Humphry Bogart - well he's Humphry Bogart - the hard as nails, smoking machine who could turn up his mouth at the corners and light up your heart.  Hollywood at its best....and now of all things - Youtube, an ever evolving art work that never stops giving.
