Open Your Heart

Look at the world with your heart

not through your eyes.

There is your inspiration.

A person, a place, a thing,

a song, a bird, a stumped toe,

can become your muse.

If you let it.

Just open yourself to the experiences

that surround you.

Let go of the shoulda, coulda, woulda.

Let go of the expectations.

Let life unfold around you.

Soon you will find

yourself exactly

where you want to be,

where you should be.

Just see the world a little differently.

Ultra Drunk

This is what happens when a middle aged man is left alone on a Saturday night to celebrate his birthday with a bottle of white wine.

Not a pretty sight.

Spo may wear lamp shades when he is sober,
but I wear feather wreaths when I'm drunk!

Ultra Finds

So how did I spend my big lottery winnings? Take a look below!

I purchased this for $60, less than the sticker!

This will go in the new living room, only $10 bucks!

And I still have $14 for a tank of gas! Not bad!

Sport's Oops!

I could become a fan of this team!

Can You Give Good Head?

Blow Job Queen

You blew it with 34 out of 40. The number is pretty meaningless.

Wow. You're good at giving head and you know when to give lousy head when the bastard deserves it. Excellent technique, eager to please... but at a price. You know you're good and you only give good when you get good. Maybe you like it that way. If not, try being a little, you know, looser.

Birthday Recap

This year's birthday was great! Sure turning 44 can suck, but that isn't neccassarily a bad thing now is it? It certainly beats the alternative.

Matched set of Foo Dog lamps from
my parents.

I ordered two more stems of my crystal
with money my sister gave me.
(I had to add some)

And to make it even better, I won $84 in the lottery!
I'm going to buy a table I've had my eye on
if it is still there.

Special thanks to all my blog buddies for their wonderful comments!

Finding Time

The laughter we shared.
The passion spent.

The scent of you lingers in the sheets
as I watch you dress to leave.
Another night,
another morning,
the same each time.
Nothing good can come of this.
No sound as you reach the door.
I roll over and cry myself to sleep.
When will our turn come?
When will we be first?
There is always something more
important it seems
than me and you.

Morning comes too quickly
and the nights aren't long enough.
Memories haunt me through the day
and fantasies rule my night.
Days without you seem to last forever.
Nothing good can come of this.
I cry myself to sleep again.
Life gets in the way
of my loving you.
There is always something that
pulls you from me.
When will our turn come?
When will we be first?

Sweet Dreams Baby

A world without you

isn't worth living in.

A dream without

you is a nightmare.

Where have you been?

What are you doing?

Why haven't you called?

And why do I care?

Maybe it's love.

Maybe it's infatuation.

No way to know.

I never felt this way before.

My heart is a flutter with hope.

My skin flush with anticipation.

Some how it will work

if it was meant to be.

My life will go on,

but not as before

How could it be?

You filled the part

that was missing in me

Sweet dreams baby,

on what can be.

Somehow I'll make through,

with or without you.

Though it pains me to.

My Birthday Wish

I don't feel any older today. It's just another rainy Saturday. I decided to indulge today on my blog, if it weren't obvious. I figured why not? I do appreciate all the well wishers today. I enjoyed that immensely. It helped alleviate growing older some. Honestly, I don't mind growing older. (The key word is growing.) I look forward to birthdays. The gray hair and wrinkles I could do without, but the fact that so many of my friends didn't make it this far, gives me pause to be thankful for each birthday that passes. I'm silently celebrating for them as well. Most likely I earned each little wrinkle and gray hair anyway. In a little while, I'll turn the lights of for Earth Day, light some candles, meditate and then have some wine while I catch up on my movie watching. One of the joys of old age is it doesn't take as much effort or planning to feel alive as it once did, or maybe that is wisdom from experience? Thanks so much to my loyal readers and followers for the comments. My birthday wish this year is that everyone everywhere gets to experience at least once in their lives the joy of peace and abundance. Bless you.

Are You a Great First Date?

One Life to Live Ain't Enough

If you could chose how long you lived, how long would you chose? 100 years? 200? 500? Forever? I think forever is too long. One hundred years isn't long enough. Somewhere between two and five hundred years sounds agreeable to me. I know what you're thinking, "You would outlive everyone you know." True, but other than my immediate family, I already have. Of course, I will outlive my parents most likely, that's almost a given. My sister and her family travel a lot and participate in a lot of sports, so there is an outside chance I could outlive at least one of them as well. As it stands now, I don't see or hear from them that often, so would it make a difference? Not to me, really. Now given that other than depression attributed weight gain, I have no health problems, feasibly, if in the same physical condition or better as well as given the advances in the medical field, I could live to be one hundred rather easily. It's the other two or three hundred that could be a problem. So lets say I'm in perfect health, I look no where near my chronological age and everything else is in place for the perfect life. What would I do with an extra couple hundred years on this earth? I love to travel, think of all the places I could visit or even live. I enjoy reading and writing, maybe I could write the absolutely best novel or autobiography ever written. I enjoy music, so why not master several of my favorite instruments? I love learning new things too, so I might as well accumulate several degrees in a variety of subjects that interest me. Imagine all the history you would see unfold over the course of 200 years or more of life. The knowledge and experiences would be like none that ever came before you. Think of what you could share. Even on a practical side, think how much money you could acquire if you had that much time and knowledge. If there is a break through in science for longevity or some magic potion, sign me up! I'm ready to die whenever my times comes, but if it's a few centuries away, that's okay too. I have plans.

Blah Blah Blah

I'm feeling a little blah today. I'm not sure why. The medication is working fine, maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's the encroaching middle age I feel. Maybe it's that I feel alone. Maybe it's that I feel stuck, with no way of unsticking myself just yet. I'm in a holding pattern. Circling my goals that are in sight and easily grasped, I just have to be patient. Something I find harder to do the older I become. After all, we never truly know how much time is really left do we? I want all the school work to be over with before I lose interest. I want the house built now not later. I want to plant my gardens and tend to my yard. I'd like to get a nice career going so I can retire at a proper age. I'd like to meet my next partner before I'm too old to care. I want to travel before I'm too old to enjoy it. All these things must wait. It isn't the right time. I have to get through the present so the future can arrive. I have to prepare myself for the changes to come. I have to have the proper foundations laid before anything new can begin. I know all this stuff. It doesn't make the waiting any easier. I'm just feeling blah today. No particular reason, everything in general. I'm cued up and ready to be called. I'm just waiting on the "Next".

Another Early Gift

This was my early birthday gift from my mother/parents. A matched set of Foo Dog lamps! I love them. When the house is built they will be on either side of the bed. Right now they are on the dresser. Now that I've gotten all my gifts early, Saturday is gonna seem like any other day. Oh well, it does any way. My parents have some function at church Saturday and Friday I have that make up day for school. So they are taking me to my favorite restaurant Monday for lunch.
That will be cool with me. My mother is still making me a chocolate cake for my birthday. All is good!

Things I Miss

Having been alone now for over 8 years, I've come to appreciate some things about my ex. I do miss the intimacy, not just the sexual, but the sharing that comes from a deep bond. Talking about all sorts of things, from physics to music to goals, till the wee hours. The feeling you get from knowing someone is there for you when you need them, from taking care of me when I was sick to visiting him in the hospital. The shared journey through life, the purchase of a new car, the funeral of a friend, or going to a wedding together. The little habit they possess that can be some times annoying, like now the kitchen cabinet doors are always closed when not in use. The little secrets you share just between yourselves and knowing it will never go any further than their ears. Learning about the others taste and interest and finding the common ground or that they can still surprise you. The fact that you are cared for whether they tell you so are not, it's in the things they do. Quite simply just hanging out, eating pizza and watching a DVD together or doing the mundane, like grocery shopping or laundry together. Then of course there is the physical stuff I miss too. Having someone to snuggle up to or hold me while I fall asleep. Showering, shaving even taking a piss together. The hugs and kisses. The unexpected touch. That look that says they want you. Talking about what the other does that turn you on and what else you'd like to try together. Those are things I miss the most. One day I'll find it again. For now, I'm concentrating on loving me and positioning myself to love someone else better than I ever could have before. I often wonder what he is up to now. Whatever it is, I wish him the best and maybe one day our paths will cross again. We will have much to catch up on.
