"The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire." ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
All right, here’s the scoop. A fifty-something, looks like a forty-something, reasonably intelligent, somewhat humorous, physically fit and trim, very cute in the right lights, kind of cute in other lights, runs from headlights, sometimes verbose, gainfully employed, with dimpled cheeks up and down, a head of hair, all teeth except one, affectionate in public and private, likes to hold hands and kiss, reasonable good cooker, bike riding, book reading, tennis playing, creative writing, kayaking, good conversationalist and a vary gud spellar is looking for same of the female variety for a meaningful relationship.
I have genteel and gentlemanly ways from a southern Virginia upbringing, but by no means do I shy away from big city lights after having spent many years living in Los Angeles.
I am comfortable in tennis shoes, hiking boots, work boots, cowboy boots, sandals, baseball caps, swimming trunks, t-shirts, sweat shirts, sans shirts, blue jeans, tan jeans, black jeans, khakis, cottons, two-piece suits, three-piece suits, one-piece suits, gorilla suits but I have never found myself at ease in a paternity suit (please see the ‘somewhat humorous’ phrase in the preceding paragraph). And rest assured, I can never imagine myself wearing a Speedo. As a matter of fact, a clause in my “living will” states that if anyone ever does see me in a Speedo, he or she has my permission to pull the plug.
I relocated back to Maryland little more than ten years ago and recently settled myself into the Bay community of Churchton, a small village twenty miles south of Annapolis. And while we have no McDonalds or Burger King, no Taco Bell or Baskin Robbins, no shoe store or bong shop, no bowling alley or Olympic-sized swimming pool, we do have easy traffic patterns, friendly neighbors, beautiful sunsets, a Ledos and the Bay—-my glorious Bay.
And now words about chemistry: Difficult to define. Chemistry is fantastic when it’s there in the beginning, and nearly as good when it develops in time. This is not to say that initial attraction is not what catches the eyes first, but this alone is not the last word on chemistry. There are other words like honesty, integrity, electrons, smiles, playfulness, touch, atomic mass, sincerity, intellect, warmth, easy feelings, trust, friendship, hydrogen bonding, cash (please see the ‘somewhat humorous’ phrase in the opening paragraph), honesty, honesty, honesty. Chemistry definitely is an important ingredient to a healthy relationship. Chemistry is also important when refining crude oil and making soap.
Okay. If I have pleasantly piqued your interest, or peaked your interest or even picked your interest, please drop a line into my box.
Enjoy the day!
Postscript One of the finest things in this life is walking hand-in-hand with someone in whom you've chosen to place total trust. Someone to whom you can show your weaknesses and not feel the insecurity one often senses when dealing truthfully with the rank and file. Someone who accepts you for who you are and because of who you are. Someone whose smile can light up your world and whose tears can break your heart. Someone who will offer understanding even when it's impossible to do so. I like to believe that I am that type of person. I strive to be.
