Love . . .

Love is a servitude.

In my opinion, a relationship/marriage/partnership is NOT 50/50. It’s not give and receive.

Love is giving a full 100%. You give all you can, whenever you can, as much as you can, for as long as you can.

“True love is one-way traffic.  It’s a pure flow of giving and expecting nothing in return.  Anything else is a contract.  Notice how whenever you allow love to flow you are always clear, calm and strong.  It is only when the thought arises, “What have they given me in return?” that there is confusion and resentment.  Ego transacts, love transforms.  Life is too short for all these meticulous contracts and transactions.  Remain clear, remain bright, and remain strong.  Love without expectation.”

The secret is to have someone on the other end who feels the same. Who also gives 100%.

Love is . . .

love is for always

Happy birthday, MyLove!

We have been together longer than we have been without each other. I can’t imagine my life without you in it.

love forever

And the answer to the following questions:

Would you lay with me?

and

When I’m 64?

is:

YES

I would lay with you in a field of stone.
If your needs were strong, I would lay with you.
Should your lips grow dry, I would wet them dear,
In the midnight hour if your lips were dry.

I would go away to another land.
Walk a thousand miles through the burning sand.
Wipe the blood away from your dying hand,
If you give yourself to me.

I will bathe with you in the stream of life.
When the moon is full, I will bathe with you.
I will still love you when you’re down and out.
In your time of trial, I will stand by you.

I would go away to another land.
Walk a thousand miles through the burning sand.
Wipe the blood away from your dying hand,
If you give yourself to me.

Yours. ♥

Activity . . . or the lack of . . .

We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us ACTIVITY.

My activities on a sort-of-daily basis:

studying, reading, working (paying job), cooking, loving, caring, caressing, driving.

I luuuurv to read. I read to get away from it all. I read to relax and to go someplace else even if it’s only in my head. As I’ve mentioned before, I am an obsessive-compulsive-reader. I read everything. If it doesn’t interest me, but catches my eye, I will read it – ads, posters, signs, etc. Luckily I curb that with a good book – one that I want to read.

The lack of activity in our house:

Standout . . .

When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us STANDOUT.

I do not do crowds and I do not like being in the spotlight.

Thus, the photo:

This is standout.
