Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

One of my magical beliefs was destroyed today. I always believed that attraction was all important and something that only happened when people were in some way destined for each other. Then I had to do a role play with a woman who is much older than me and who I'm totally not attracted to. At the end she was all shy and giggly and I had that tingling sensation. If it even can be created between the two of us in a situation where we are open to it because of the setting, it may be nothing more special than just a pleasant feeling. Nothing magical about it. Is there nothing sacred in this world anymore?

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

So stressed out right now. Ebony's over here trying to soothe me, shaking a bit (I mean I'm shaking a bit, Ebony's trying to make me stop)

such a stressful weekend.

seems nothing has wanted to go right this weekend and this week so far

probably should take meds.

You made a connection with another human being. That this is possible in all kinds of settings is magical in its own way too.

Magically beautiful.

That’s good that a magical belief was destroyed.

The mind may know it is a role play, but the heart cannot know or see such things.

And so perhaps you found that attraction can develop through engagement where it did not exist before. I think I first learned that in a big way when I was about 23...and yes, I was bewildered by it actually happening, even though I believed it could happen before it ever did.

No, there is nothing magical about it.

It is something far, far greater...magic is but a parlour trick. This is something else entirely, above and beyond.

Don’t devalue it because it was experienced as part of a defined situation.

It was perhaps made possible because of the situation, but it was the real deal, make no mistake of that.

I think it good that for you the experience no longer has the qualities of being magical or sacred. Those are things of the imagination, which could never capture the sublime, essential nature of what occurred.

To connect with another human being is the only thing that truly matters in the world, the only thing that has ever mattered, and the only thing that will ever matter.

Why?

Because it is the seed from which blooms the flower that is Love.

And after all else falls away, Love is what remains.


Blesséd Be,
Ian

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

Guess I've got to lay low for a while, not in my best mood lately and it leads me to seeking arguments online.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

I need to remember to not let Tigger play the game of "parts of Star's body are mousies", just got my hand beat up by her (she used her claws to grip but didn't get hard enough hold with either claws or teeth luckily)

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

LOL has raised her annoyance to a new level. She crossed off every day the other chick is supposed to be there in purple marker but she can't see and the calendar is a scribbled mess.

The heat guy has to come because the whatever isn't doing what it should. It seemed just great in there to me but I'm not 87 or however old she is.

She's mad about her birthday. I could go on and on. I just want a nap so I can deal with her when I get back there.

Her urine output is about zilch. It is getting pretty close to check out. Her toenails are blue.

UPDATE!

She took a monstrous dump and is happy as a lark!

Ancient heating is once again pouring out the BTU's.

She drank a lot of water after I gave her the one-two. She'll be tinkling all night.

AND, I can hardly contain myself to see Her Flip's and her daughter's reaction to LOL's scheduling changes.

I told her the other chick is coming tomorrow and she snappily said, "She'll find out she's NOT when she walks in the door!"

I am not answering my phone tomorrow.

Just in case anyone is dying to be In The Know, KVK Dex does not dry my mouth out. Voila! I am SO happy. Not deliriously so, just not like this anymore that could change, you never know.

Hmm, you must have the Lo-Dri™ version.

Me, I just keep a gin and tonic at hand here at work when the sipper’s feeling a bit parched.
