Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends... Ladies and Gentlemen
In a Relationship
I am one of the most interesting; yet flawed people I know, but something that I know about me that you may not know (How could you ?) is that if I know you and I get in good with you, there is almost nothing I wouldn't do for you if you needed.
I have a wonderful and terrific son; man I tell you he is the lifespring to which my life flows, and the mere thought of him makes me unbelievably happy... Being the typical Scorpio dad I let him think he is independent and 'free', but he is never out of my sight or my sphere of influence...
A not so terrific ex-wife (In her defense I am sure I am not in her top 300 terrific people either)...
I am a lover of life and a life long student... I want to not only drink from the cup of life, but want to know what is in the cup also; however I want to live for the moment and not think about all of it sometimes... As most can attest life is sometimes 'on the rocks' and at other times 'neat'
I love romance and loving... I strive to meet that special someone and do everything to show them how much I love and appreciate them. Thus far I haven't been all that succesful, flashes of brilliance (If I say so), laced with moments of being an asshole (Extreme) -- A total work in progress, but I never make the same mistake twice and every moment I feel like I am more of a complete person, and have more to offer... The thought of love makes me see colors.
Speaking more of love and of loving, I feel like all love starts with the self and flows outwards... I feel like I can offer nothing to anyone else that I can't offer to myself first.
To be continued... I have so much more to add about me, but until then feel free to ask... If you wish.
My beloved Frost, Yeats, Thoreau, Emerson have been replaced by text books (And mostly not the fun ones), but the passion and desire to read them still remains. The not so faded thoughts and emotions introduced to me through many late night readings, remain as intact and ingrained in my mind, as the first moments I feverishly read them. Of course my absolute favorite book is still The Story of O, absolutely brilliant! I don’t believe that one can be unmoved by O’s journey, throughout the book.
I was also introduced to The Moveable Feast, I had such excitement as I read through the book, recounting the events and the characters; although, I was left a little sad towards the end, as I knew that all those things would eventually end. Ultimately though, to live life with fear of the end, is to have never really lived life. Live in the moment.
Beliefs / Practices
Spiritual but not Religious, Other Spirituality
Hobbies have taken such a back seat to my schedule. Work and school, make it seem like if I am not doing something related to either one of them, then I am usually sleeping. I do enjoy gardening now that I am a home owner (Yes, very exciting stuff), love cooking (Will do the dishes) Enjoy concerts, the theater, and the occasional play (Still trying to dig opera, but more a fan of the occasional concerto).
Heroism has taken on such a drastic meaning over the last couple of decades; although, still fun to think about, long gone is the heroic and gallant Hollywood type of heroes. Replaced by the not so heroic and gallant people that surround us every single day, but have tremendous responsibilities on their shoulders, with little to no fanfare.
How did you find PaganSpace?
I feel like so much has changed since I have first arrived on this site. Those initial expectations and thoughts, have given way to an enduring desire, to be part of this community, to be part of the exchange of thoughts and ideas, with so many others that have so much to share.
Friday blessings to you. I would like to extend a special invitation to you to join me on a journey of a lifetime. A journey toward a new era of consciousness as we approach the dawning of 2012. http://www.paganspace.net/group/2012awareness
Hey, The Story of O is one of my favourite books, arguably the greatest work of erotic literature-of erotic fantasy-ever written, all the more compelling because the author was a woman.. My reading of that dark fairy tale is different from yours, though. I see it as a quest, on O's part, for the most absolute forms of freedom.
Anyway, you have an interesting profile, Dave, and I place the same kind of emphasis as you do on romance and love. :) Hugs, Anastasia
