“As a matter of fact, we are none of us above criticism; so let us bear with each other's faults.”
L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz.
"Present mirth hath present laughter; What's to come is still unsure." ...
Can you paddle a Canoe? Stern or Bow?
Is it really as difficult as it would appear to be to find a like mind, a similar soul?
So, just curious, what is it in a Man that piques a womans/your curiousity? Clearly each each individual is different - so tell me what distinguishes You.
Always, whenever you can, hug a child and tell them that they are the greatest, most fantastic and most loved thing in the whole wide-world that anyone could ever imagine . ..that they are Loved, without bounds, beyond the furthest reaches of the Stars...that they are perfect!
Laughter and brains are the most alluring traits to me.
Earth Mothers, please apply.
If you can laugh at yourself .... find joy in the simple things in Life, then perhaps we should speak.
I worked the "suit" world for many years. Ultimately, I discovered that it was not my "way of life". I have created a new Life - one in which I hope, will include someone who "clicks" with my humour. Somone who can be salty, clever and irreverent, without being mean and more than anything, care's for others... maybe even before themself.
My daughter, is the greatest joy of my life. Her admirable character, joy, kindness, humour, emotional intelligence, common sensibilities and courtesy, allow me to sleep confidently and peacefully, knowing her mother and I have raised a kind, thoughtful and generous soul.
Our legacy is our progeny. What one chooses to "take" from Life, they take with them when they depart...what one "gives", carries on, through others. My Angel is in flight...
I prefer the simpler, more rewarding elements of life...a great meal with great company, music, theatre, art, laughter. I don't mind splitting wood if there is a fire or stove to be stoked.
Curiously, I find it fun to clean up after a great dinner party - some of the best laughter happens while doing dishes....it is all about connection, understanding, comfort, humour ... being together!
The most beautiful sound in the world is the unbridled laughter of a child filled with joy, optimism and the confidence of knowing they are loved - safely, totally, completely ... absolutely!
I have huge respect and admiration for those who are respectful. Courtesy and manners are important to me.
I am a Pragmatist, a hopeless romantic and often light candles when dining by myself. Life, is all about Communication .
A few things that have made my life more complete: my daughter, music, art , dance - ballet and modern ... not mine, I can dance like Elaine from Seinfeld! Humour, clever wits and gentle intelligence, Jazz, Bach's Cello and Piano concerto's, film, Wilco, cooking Thai or Viet, Blue Rodeo - "Till I Gain Control Again" - 5 Days in May, "Little Martha" by Duanne Allman, Shannendoah, by Keith Jarrett, photography (Steiglitz), reno's, cross-country skiing, paddling, travel - have been to India, Nepal, the UK, throughout Canada and the US, Costa Rica, Cuba.
Knowing that people like Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama, do (did) exist.
I am drawn to very clever, funny people; a brilliant mind accompanied by a sense of humour is dead sexy, as is a fit physique! It might drop me to my knees.
I love a good glass of wine... the company is far more important. Food, music, charms and sweet ambitions with a view to a beach and the sound of the surf.
I have Loved deeply, and been Loved equally ... I hope to be there again, soon.
Be well..... Namaste.
