I know that this isn’t the most conventional love letter for Valentine’s Day. And the picture of Alain Delon isn’t really an equivalent to the typical hallmark card with red roses , little angels, and all that girly stuff but bare with me and let me explain.
I promise you it will be worth it.
You see, I find the resemblance between you and Alain Delon just remarkable and I cannot lie to you – it was the first thing I noticed when I met you on that train. Forgive my bold aesthetic associations, but I know the value of beauty and it is priceless! It is what inspires us, what motivates us, what makes us fall utterly in love because we, as human beings, are always in search of something divine. I believe that beauty is the most convincing recreation of divinity. It is the primary protoplast of our emotional attachment to life. Therefore it is the first thing that makes us love life without us realizing it and live life with passion. Beauty is perfection only when it is in its most natural and unconstrained form. That’s why it is so rare and so dearly cherished.
Throughout the centuries people have come up with endless ways to preserve beauty… Epistemologically, art is the greatest way of them all. Take Michelangelo’s David for example. It is the symbol of human’s beauty.
For the few of those, who say ’ Looks don’t matter, it’s the personality that counts!’ Well, try telling that to Da Vinci, Van Gogh, Dega etc. I haven’t seen Dega drawing personalities. But I have seen his divine captures of the female body in the most elegant motion known to man. Was Dostoyevsky right when he said “Beauty is going to save the world” ? I believe he was… I believe that beauty saves the world every day.
Now lets go back to the beginning. I wanted to give you one of the most striking examples of falling in love with real, natural beauty:
Alain Delon was a world-wide renowned actor, whose sex appeal and gorgeousness literally drove women mad. He was also considered to be the most beautiful actor of the 20th century and the sexiest man on the planet. Alain Delon could have had every single woman on Earth if he wanted to! A couple of promising female stars almost ended their lives, because they couldn’t have him. Rumor has it that one of them actually did – Romy Schneider. That’s just how dangerous his beauty was.
You don’t just look like Alain Delon. I think that not only in terms of looks you’re a much better version of the man he used to be, when he was young (he’s in his 70s now). And yes, having such a great big heart and a wonderful personality is another bonus, that only makes you more incredible.
I thank, from the bottom of my heart, all the stupid women who have passed by you and didn’t see what an amazing guy you are, and just how gorgeous you are. I thank those stupid, stupid, stupid girls who lost you. Thank God for their absence of basic knowledge, sense of reality, and total lack of good taste! Thanks to them, now I get to have the most beautiful guy of the 21st century with the greatest heart and cherish him, and I will do that with pleasure… And with passion! I love you, Nick! Happy Valentine’s Day!
P.S. Sorry my girliness couldn’t resist itself…
