Longing

Someone I was intimate with has written me a letter, and in it he referenced some of what he thinks my problems are, including this: ” an extreme amount of longing that is very difficult to bear sometimes.”  Well, naturally I had to think about all that and here’s where I’m at:   I actually kinda like it.  Read More…

Love is Heavier than Air

 Swept off my feet.  Over the moon.  On cloud nine.  Walking on air.  All wonderful expressions of falling in love, all ways that I personally have felt.  But here is what comes next – all of these phrases are about being disconnected from earth … from having our feet on the ground.  And for me, Read More…

Love in the Time of Chaos

In this space, I’ve been sharing my thoughts on Love and True Love and What I Want (versus need) in a Man.  This has led to an increase in conversations with other ladies (and sometimes a gentleman or two), but the conversation has actually been going on for some time now and the theme remains Read More…

Rededication

 I rededicate myself to the whole reason I started these “love notes”.   I’m going back and rereading them.  I had a reason for writing them, but for awhile I got distracted and I stopped.  Maybe because I fell in love with the love that made me start writing them in the first place.  Now, I Read More…

Only Love Can Break Your Heart

Lately I’ve been thinking that, contrary to songs and poems and stories, your heart breaks first. That’s how all the love is released, that’s what floods your body and soul with all that warmth and wanting. As soon as you actually meet someone that may very well be the love you’ve been waiting for, your Read More…

The Love Spring

For some of us, Love is like a spring, tightly coiled inside us. Sister, perhaps, to the phrase Hope Springs Eternal. We have more than the desire to Love, we have the need. The search for one to receive is our purpose. We want to give, to care, to express, and yes – to receive Read More…

Musings on Love

Love – the most abused and underused word in our language. Abused as it is used to describe everything from a pair of shoes to being used by someone who just doesn’t know what to do next, so out of boredom or confusion or panic or lack of groundedness or fear of confrontation or just Read More…

Where Did Love Go? Part II

[prompted by long phone call & challenge from friend regarding last post, in effect “Love has sadness, because you’re on a journey and that’s part of life.”] Well….yeah, I feel that way too. I struggle with the same whys and wherefores when it comes to communication/relation. I wasn’t pointing the finger without three pointing back Read More…

Where Did Love Go?

Philosophical question or just plain human nature or how the stars are aligned: Has anyone besides me noticed that lately people in love are sad more than joyous. I’ve had 2 friend dates in a row & both of them express the same experience. In love and Sad. And that’s just the last 2 – Read More…
