About Kipling
“The first stab of love is like a sunset, a blaze of color -- oranges, pearly pinks, vibrant purples...”
Anna Godbersen, The Luxe

(Disclaimer: NEVER read the Notebook - just liked this quote from it)

“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook


I wasn't going to replicate all the rest of the profiles that say "Love my dawg" or "Family and friends are so important" or "I like long walks along the beach" or "I love the Seasons but hate Winter".....

I'm better at connecting than connection. Six degrees of separation? And the 3 most important questions everyone needs to answer or the biggest question in life "What happens 1 second after I die?"

If you have "non-religious" in your profile I surely would like to know what that means.

Everyone has a story and I like the quote, "People are more interesting than just about anyone."

So far, the best one-liner in anyone's profile I've read has been "My Christianity defines who I am." Hard to top that!


Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.

“It's funny how, in this journey of life, even though we may begin at different times and places, our paths cross with others so that we may share our love, compassion, observations, and hope. This is a design of God that I appreciate and cherish.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Just a flock of birds
That's how you think of love

And I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
Cause they fly always
Sometimes they arrive
Sometimes they are gone
They fly on

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Into smoke i'm turned and rise
Following them up

Still I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
Cause they fly away
One minute they arrive
Next you know they're gone
They fly on
Fly on

So fly on, ride through
Maybe one day I'll fly next to you
So fly on, ride through
Maybe one day I could fly with you
Fly on

3 Reflections:

The Ancient one:

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal.-

from The Dark, Blue Sea - Lord Byron

From today's "poetry" (music):

"Swing Life Away"

Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

Name this 1972 classic:

My love
I'll never find the words my love
To tell you how I feel my love
Mere words could not explain

Precious love
You held my life within your hands
Created everything I am
Taught me how to live again

First Date
Ravinia during its season is the best venue possible in all of Chicagoland. Of interest would be volunteering for a worthy cause.

Remember, there is Joy in the Journey. If you've lost it, it can be found. If you've never found it, find someone who has.

From Sonnet 116:
Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds...
