A little about me...
"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes don't see as well and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. "But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand"
The Velveteen Rabbit.
I am a lifelong learner...a lover of people...a believer In G-d. My children and family mean more to me than life itself. I work hard and play harder, love well and count my many blessings.
I believe these things are true:
Passion is the energy of the soul.
If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough.
Life is measured in Grace, not perfection...and
Comparison is the killer of Joy.
I try to make fewer mistakes today than yesterday. I sometimes fail and need help and forgiveness. Forgiveness is like air to a relationship...try going without it. Same for laughter. It is why (IMHO) friendship comes first... and is lived from the inside-out if it is to grow into...us.
Jes sayin'...work like you don't need the money; love like you have never been hurt and dance like no one is watching. Full disclosure: I don't dance well at all.
About the one I'm looking for...
This paragraph may scare you (if it doesn't, check your pulse) and perhaps make you run away. That's okay, I understand. I have read it and it scares me. But here goes...She will be capable of real intimacy, true loyalty, sincere affection, a courageous truthfulness that gently hurts and a willingness to risk in favor of becoming...loved.
Can you (truly) fall on the floor laughing? Is soulcare something you need from your lover? Is quiet an important part of your lifestyle? Are you afraid of my having a large personal library in the house? How many dogs? Can you hold hands, go for long walks, take off for the weekend...and grow blissfully... together
Do you enjoy? (that is not a typo!). I know happiness but desire the joy of living and loving from the inside-out with one more lady, friend, lover, partner and confidante (yep. Answer E: all of the above). It is the nature of the beast (re:Lady and the Tramp).
Can you dance in the kitchen when cooking? Mutual foot massage...often? Gardening (can you beat .the aroma of dirt after it rains)? Diving? Travel? Reading aloud (to each other). Live jazz.
I would not ask such if I did not plan to deliver. I know you are out there...I want you to come home.
I'd just like to add...
And then, this:
"To be nobody but yourself in a world which
is doing its best day and night to make you
everybody else, means to fight the hardest
battle which any human being can fight...and
never stop fighting." -e.e. cummings-
About You: If you don't have a picture, my assumption is that you have something to hide, or someone to hide from. Duplicity is bad form, and I will not participate with any kind of response.
Unfortunately, if you are separated or even legally separated, I consider you still married and I do not date married women. I wish you well...in any case.
Thanks for taking a couple of minutes...I enjoyed it.
