The Door

She closed the door
In my face
It hurt
Threw me away
All the memories
All the loveliness
All the joy
I was no longer needed
But then
Another door opened
And there was a man
And he said
It felt familiar
She proceeded
With caution
Like watching
Her garden



Loving our Planet

I have always wondered if the dinosaurs were aware of their imminent demise. Were they were aware of global warming? Is it possible that they sat around and discussed how they might in fact better their world and improve their conditions for the greater goodness of all dinosaurs? Were they perhaps in the middle of this discussion when the asteroid hit? What really happened?
I cannot fathom the dinosaurs intentionally and knowingly raped the planet, and yet, they are extinct. We humans, with our big brains, know precisely the radical damage we are doing, yet we continue. We are accelerating our extinction at breakneck speed.
I am not being sarcastic and I do care about our planet.
So … what are we going to do?
It could be something really simple … recycling, driving a more fuel efficient car, buying local, eating organic, growing your own garden, xeriscaping your yard, turning off all the lights when you are not at home, composting, riding a motorcycle or scooter, donating to a good cause, walking to work or riding a bike, unplugging appliances when not in use, and my very favorite … get some urban chickens !!!
And love your planet 🙂

Dating a Real Man

So I met this guy while sitting on my porch in my bathrobe smoking a cigarette and drinking a cocktail. He was walking down the street with his 5 year old son and I hollered at him to stop.
We had a nice chat. I don’t remember what we talked about as I was rather distracted by his countenance. Tall, dark and handsome, with a beautiful smile and brilliant blue green eyes … rather extraordinary actually.
And then I waited for him to come back.
And he did.
And then again.
And it turns out I like him and he likes me.
A real man.
A single, heterosexual, spiritual and conscious man.
A man that is honest and straightforward in his intentions, a man that actually calls me and makes plans to see me, a man that knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it.
I had mentioned previously that this genre of man was perhaps a legend, a fairy tale or a myth, somewhat like a unicorn.
But unless I am dreaming, he is real. He exists and lives in the world. In fact, he lives just down the street 🙂 How lovely.
