EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW

Photo by Joseph H. Davis

How to fall in love without losing herself.

How to quit a job, break up with a lover and confront a friend,
without ruining the friendship.

When to try harder… and WHEN TO WALK AWAY.

That she can’t change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents.

That her childhood may not have been perfect…but it’s over.

What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more.

How to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it.

Whom she can trust, whom she can’t, and why she shouldn’t take   it personally.

Where to go…be it to her best friend’s kitchen table or, 
a charming Inn in the woods when her soul needs soothing.

What she can and can’t accomplish in a day, a month…and a year.

Jalal ad-Din Rumi

“When I am with you, we stay up all night.
When you’re not here,
I can’t go to sleep.
Praise God for those two insomnias!
And the difference
between them.”

Jalal ad-Din Rumi (1207-1273)

a hug

a simple act of kindness
hard to resist such a generous offer
I accept willingly
and for a moment,
I feel safe

rarely requested
but often needed
a sweet gesture for a heavy heart

with a longing to comfort an ailing soul
my ego seeks the perfect remark

instinct kicks in
gently reminding
a skilled tongue is no match
for a well timed embrace

A romance that grew from the illusion that existed was not a result of any one word or action

but a collection of smiles, stories, confusion, laughter and hopeful offerings.

It was no more of a mistake than it was a calculated path designed by a more experienced soul.

The delicate balance of give and take was taken for granted and always assumed.

knowing the consequences, a risk is still there even if one must hold back for both

the joy stems from the new possibility and the thrill of the game.

Waiting, playing, flirting, seducing, learning, appreciating, trusting, accepting and understanding…

A dance we all know even if we can’t hear the tune.

Millions of people,

thousands of miles,

decades of experience

and a handful of advice

leads to one common bond that can only be decided by two.

An Open Letter to a Former Companion

Dear Money –

I miss you.

Seems like its been so long since you and I were close.  I  guess with all the fun we had, I’d hoped you and I would be in it for the long  haul.. So many dreams, hopes and plans for the future.  I always assumed that I  could take care of you so you would grow and mature.

I wondered if you were afraid of commitment when you thought I was using  you.  Granted, I may have been careless with you at times, but I was naive and  spontaneous.   I truly believed you would be around forever… Foolish I know.   If you give me another chance, I promise to keep you  around more.

Don’t be a stranger.    xxoo

Two Mistakes

not going all the way, and not starting.”

Rejection

20121129-223919.jpg

One day
possibly tomorrow…
The echo of cruel laughter, of rejection and ridicule,
The voices of critics with unsolicited advice, good intentions and practical wisdom,
The memory of failed attempts,
will begin to dissolve
and only fragments of past discouragement will remain to taunt my soul
It takes seconds to utter a careless comment,
But it takes years to understand the affect
Words are only as important as I allow them to be
I give them strength and credence.

Struggle

How do you live if you’re ruled by your past …
But how do you let go of a past that made you?
