When in doubt be a Blumenkavalier!

If any man or woman ever tells you that being a gentleman is not cool or good, then I want you to tell them, “Thank you for your information and goodbye.”

Why? Because it just isn’t true.

Gentlemen do still exist in our world today. Of course, these gentlemen are not tidy, neat, all put together and sweet every single minute. They, much like what others would consider a “bad guy,” have their issues. Sometimes women don't allow men to be gentleman, because they want that bad kinda guy. Trust me you do NOT want that guy. You will envy your friends if they have that kind loving "human" being of a man.

Don't commit yourself to any obligation that you are not willing to brave fire, famine, and flood to fulfill. Likewise, when you are entrusted with a secret, guard it as closely as you do your own. There is no breakup, no fight, no argument, no falling out that absolves you from this responsibility. Live and die with the secrets entrusted to you locked away in your heart. Do not listen to rumors and spread them around. Spreading lies and hate is never ever in fashion unless you are a complete asshole. (I'm just saying)

Some things cannot change...accept them as they are.

Manners aren't something that should feel forced or ostentatious: rather, they should make the people around you feel better about being around you.

He goes out of his way to let her know he cares. Every. Single. Day. Make a note of this one, it will be vital to your relationship if you have any love interest.

Cinderella is a Liar

The reality is no matter how independent maiden you are, flying solo is no fairy tale, and even if you do get the slippers there are no guarantees. No matter how beautiful your dress, how sexy your perfume or how tender your heart is most of the time, Prince Wonderful does not pay you a visit by climbing up your balcony. Hell, he does not even call or text you.

If you ever sat alone on a Saturday night and waited and waited on the couch, hoping he would at least tell you he is having some difficulties to log back into the world of make belief, well let me tell you this is not a fairy tale. "Where is my happily ever after?" Then it is time to know the truth that Cinderella was a liar.

In her tale of easy love, she omitted the reality of her situations and screwed every maiden who ever heard her story by giving them unrealistic expectations and a flawed blueprint. This fact is not pleasant but it leaves us with two options.

1. We can sit here and whine about the cuts of broken glass slippers.

2. We can change out of our single-in-distress garb and move past the fairy tale.

The truth is that their reasons actually (somewhat) make (douchey) sense at times. Here’s the truth about why he chose her.

Most men know, fairly early into the relationship, whether it’s something they want to go the distance. The only thing is that they won’t tell YOU. Maybe too much toxic sh..t and cries for help will make him run the other way. Men feel helpless when all you want is a simple conversation to make you feel at ease again. If he won't tell you his feelings or makes excuses why he can't...he is not into you as much as he is in to her. He will have many reasons why her and it is better not to even ask about it. Let is go!!! Move on and do the things you like. There is a lid for every pot and some lids may fit at first but they just don't make the cut.

Trust dies but mistrust blossoms."Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters." --Albert Einstein

You tempted me with a gold plated smile  and laid your wicked lips to my ear to whisper sweet lies...you bent me over and smacked my **** with the whipping sting of your crooked views grunting and groaning in a preemptive pursuit that buckled my knees and raped my faith with your thrusting compliments...

...and feigned an orgasm dressed in a sweaty trail dripping salty shades to splinter an unspoken bond leaving me broken and infected  with a sexually transmitted distrust!!!

Emotional and Mental Stages...stop being an idiot!

I don't care about anyone's view on politics or religion. To pressure someone to believe in their views is just wrong. I see tons of propaganda being spread to create hate and anger, don't fall for this crap. Trust your own instincts. Bottom line is no matter what side you are on....we all need love and everybody deserves it. So spread love instead of hate.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. 

Martin Luther King, Jr.

You may hate who is running the country or who is your boss. They all needed love and nurture including you. Without that special care as an infant and child we just do not survive. So if those who hate now and do crime and are just plain idiots...that is on you...your choice. Do not blame others for your idiocy.

Did you know: Idiot was formerly a legal and psychiatric category of profound intellectual disability, in which a person's mental age is two years or less, and he or she cannot guard against common dangers. Along with terms like moron, imbecile, and cretin, the term is now archaic and offensive, and was replaced by the term "profound mental retardation" (which has itself since been replaced by other terms).
Nowadays, "idiot" is a derogatory term for a stupid or foolish person.
So, that makes me wonder who has the real mental issue? On the other hand : Love encompasses a variety of strong and positive emotional and mental states, ranging from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection and to the simplest pleasure.
Which one do you choose? Idiot or Love? Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

She was a phantom of delight

"A poetic movement of the late 18th and early 19th centuries that turned toward nature and the interior world of feeling, in opposition to the mannered formalism and disciplined scientific inquiry of the Enlightenment era that preceded it. English poets such as William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Lord Byron produced work that expressed spontaneous feelings, found parallels to their own emotional lives in the natural world, and celebrated creativity rather than logic."

Some things are there, even if you do not see them.
When I was still studying English Literature at the university I would see poetry as a painting and I believe these men and women in that era had the same visions. So here within the art of photography, think of the creativity rather than the reality or the logic that your brain tells you. Look beyond all of that and not at the characters in the pictures but the emotions that you experience. Are they pleasant, are they joy? You are the one who can decide if they please the eyes just like a poem that can please the ear and the imagination.

To Lady Beaumont by William Wordsworth...
LADY! the songs of Spring were in the grove
While I was shaping beds for winter flowers;
While I was planting green unfading bowers,
And shrubs--to hang upon the warm alcove,
And sheltering wall; and still, as Fancy wove
The dream, to time and nature's blended powers
I gave this paradise for winter hours,
A labyrinth, Lady! which your feet shall rove.
Yes! when the sun of life more feebly shines,
Becoming thoughts, I trust, of solemn gloom 
Or of high gladness you shall hither bring;
And these perennial bowers and murmuring pines
Be gracious as the music and the bloom
And all the mighty ravishment of spring.

listen up...do as I say
Some things however are not what they seem, like in poetry words hint to certain ideas and actions and so do photographs of art. Unless you know the true meaning behind the artist's thoughts, you may not understand what the artwork meant to tell.

...and now I see with eye serene...yup you're an alien.

from William Wordworth "She was a phantom of delight" 
When first she gleamed upon my sight; 
A lovely Apparition, sent 
To be a moment's ornament; 
Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair; 
Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair; 
But all things else about her drawn 
From May-time and the cheerful Dawn; 
A dancing Shape, an Image gay, 
To haunt, to startle, and way-lay.
...And now I see with eye serene 
The very pulse of the machine; 
A Being breathing thoughtful breath, 
A Traveler between life and death; 
The reason firm, the temperate will, 
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill; 
A perfect Woman, nobly planned, 
To warm, to comfort, and command; 
And yet a Spirit still, and bright, 
With something of angelic light.

Fire On Fire

My mother said I'm too romantic
She said, "You're dancing in the movies"
I almost started to believe her
Then I saw you and I knew
Maybe it's 'cause I got a little bit older
Maybe it's all that I've been through
I'd like to think it's how you lean on my shoulder
And how I see myself with you
I don't say a word
But still, you take my breath and steal the things I know
There you go, saving me from out of the crowd

Fire on fire, we're normally killers
With this much desire, together, we're winners
They say that we're out of control and some say we're sinners
But don't let them ruin our beautiful rhythms
'Cause when you unfold me and tell me you love me
And look in my eyes
You are perfection, my only direction
It's fire on fire, mm
It's fire on fire
When we fight, we fight like lions
But then we love and feel the truth
We lose our minds in a city of roses
We won't abide by any rules (Sam Smith)

If you have not listened to the song, please do. You can also see the movie on Netflix called Watership Down

Life is so simple but we choose to complicate it....

To love another with all of your heart
Can be seen as a work of art.
You brush, you stroke, you pour, you spill,
And upon each action your heart will fill.
Hours are spent in an endless gaze
That shall remain for all your days.
With each addition to the paper,
You realize your love will never taper.
And in the end you will finally see,
That all of your mistakes were meant to be.

Do you allow your Inner Light and Truth to guide you or do you allow Fear to paralyze you and keep you in Darkness? Whenever we find ourselves in a situation where we might be feeling sad, depressed, angry, judgmental etc., we need to realize that we are in fact feeling fear, a fear of something and we also have to keep in mind that fear was created by us, fear is not real, we made it up, while on the other hand, LOVE is real, LOVE is our natural state of being, that’s who we are, that’s what created us, and that’s what’s real. So why choose FEAR when you can choose LOVE?

Life is so simple but we choose to complicate it. We always seem to be balancing between love and fear and failure. 

“A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?” ~ Einstein

Keep it positive

Every day the news is filled with stories about war, terrorism, crime, pollution, inequality, drug abuse and oppression. I also believe that the media forgets to balance all the negative stuff in the world with many good news stories. They do happen. Humanity still has some positive sides and is not all that bad as the news describes. 

There are many great news stories full of smiles out there. You just have to pick what you really want to read or hear about:

A 96 WWII veteran who received 50 thousand birthday cards from all over because he was afraid he would maybe only get a few cards. Most of his friends and family passed away. His daughter then took to social media with a plea for strangers to brighten her father’s day with a simple birthday card – and the internet was quick to respond.

Did you know: More people are living longer and fuller lives thanks to a steadily declining cancer mortality rate.

According to a report from the American Cancer Society, the cancer death rate in the United States has declined by 27% over the course of the last 25 years.

As of 2016, the cancer death rate for men and women combined had fallen 27% from its peak in 1991. This decline translates to nearly 2.6 million deaths averted during this time period.

Like an insomniac!!!

You don't have to wait for the stars to come out, you can reach high anytime. It is all up to you. If you believe it it will happen.
You never know they could come from a different planet and bring you the things you had on your list.

...and then I find out he is NOT an alien...what?
I’d like to meet an alien.
Yeah, wouldn’t that be neat?
I’m sure there’s not another
creature I would rather meet.
I wouldn’t care if he was big,
or medium, or tiny,
or if his skin was rough and tough,
or super smooth and shiny.
I can't doubt you, you're my best friend on earth
I can't doubt you because my hearts under attack
I'll stand rooted to this spot like an insomniac.

2019 arrived

With true friends… even water drunk together is sweet enough.Chinese Proverb

2019 arrived and as I reflect I must say I am very fortunate to have friends. 
DJ Dandy is one of those friends who really is nice to all people. He is not the kind to talk crap about them nor does he worry about who likes him or does not. One thing I can say he would be the one person who would show up at a set of mine when nobody would be there. He really is a great DJ and yes he also tried being a host, which he is getting good at too. I appreciate him, I do. He is not afraid to try out the crazy ideas I have for sets we do together and goes with the flow of laughter. Thank you Dandy for always being there.

Grum is one of the friends you want to have. He may look alien like(elfish) but do not let that discourage you at all. Inside he is gentle and has a heart of pure gold.

“Sometimes you put walls up not to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down.”

I know I can be very stubborn and I would rather run and hide but with a friend like Grum he won't let you feel sorry in your own pity of wasted sorrows. I appreciate that so very much. I hope I am useful and helpful on his days of darkness as well. 

I am glad he returned to Second Life, so I can make some more fun of his ears and creamy white skin...like I said alien-like.

“What is uttered from the heart alone, will win the hearts of others to your own.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Thank you to all the friends who gave me encouragement during the past year...when days felt like they got swallowed in the deep dark world of loneliness. I realize with friends things are much easier to deal with than trying to be that super person and doing it all alone. People all face hardships and not all days are filled with sunshine. There is always a rainbow after the rain...well at least the sun will shine again.

I know 2019 will be a good year. It is the year of the PIG:

Chinese Horoscope 2019 – Year of the Earth Pig. Chinese New Year in 2019 starts on Tuesday, February 5th and ends on January 24th, 2020. ... According to the Chinese zodiac the year 2019 is the “Year of the Earth Pig,” a year of fortune and luck2019 is a great year to make money, and a good year to invest!
