Because She Would Ask Me Why I Loved Her
If questioning would make us wise
No eyes would ever gaze in eyes;
If all our tale were told in speech
No mouths would wander each to each.
Were spirits free from mortal mesh
And love not bound in hearts of flesh
No aching breasts would yearn to meet
And find their ecstasy complete.
For who is there that lives and knows
The secret powers by which he grows?
Were knowledge all, what were our need
To thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?
Then seek not, sweet, the “If” and “Why”
I love you now until I die.
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give.
by Christopher Brennan
Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, of playing a poor hand well. -Robert Louis Stevenson
I read a long time ago that if you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than what you settled for. If I really think about it, it’s been pretty accurate. Since then, I’ve always been mindfull of what my needs are and what compromises would allow me to maintain my dignity and self respect which ultimately are very important to me. I refuse to let someone else make me unhappy. I am the master of my life!!
Do you sometimes spend the mornings thinking about the things you want to accomplish during the day and spend the evenings thinking about all the things you didn’t get done. Well, this morning…I am proud to say that by 2pm, I went to the gym and had a fantastic workout. I threw a load of laundry in and ran to take a Vinyasa yoga class for the first time. Wow, what a challenge… I was focusing so much on the positions that I had no idea where my breath was..lol. At the end of the class, the yoga instructor asked me a question and I was excited to tell him that it was my first time so that he could tell me how impressed he was but before he could respond… this chicky came over and stole my thunder 🙁 and so I bowed my head gracefully and exited the class.
My agenda today also consisted of taking a super bunch of CD’s and books(picture above) and donating them to Housing Works, which is a charity for Aids. I could not believe how many cd’s I had…needless to say, there were some that need not be uploaded into my itunes and yes, my Monster Rock Ballads made the cut 🙂 I think it’s safe to say that tonight I will feel somewhat accomplished…hence my title, follow through, honors you.
I had a great Vanilla Clouds business meeting today that almost felt like I was hanging with girlfriends. I love meeting beautiful woman who are down to earth, intelligent and driven! To them I dedicate my newest postcard! I will update later on the newest venture www.IsThatOdd.com
How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.
excerpt from the poem “The More Loving One” by W.H. Auden
This week is supposed to be a “girl(woman) power” week…Not that I’m not about boy(men) power…but right now..I’m feeling the love for the girls!
Ladies, always remember you have choices..change your mind, change your life.

I am absa-smurfly smitten with this photo…and yes, I know, that it is unlikely that a groom and a bride could be in this position, because,well,..they shouldn’t see each other before the big day, right 🙂 but I’m a big fan of sexy…and this is just sexxxxxy!!!
We tend to forget, that broken hearts aren’t assigned…
Everyone gets them….
so, always remember…you’re in good company.
