Here is an excerpt from my journal that says it all, I think:
"I don't want to be an unread book. I want to be read and explored and notes taken in my margins and reread again and again, rediscovered and enjoyed, forgotten parts delighted in and fond memories of the good parts reignited. I want to be devoured and consumed and then do it all over again, just like a favourite book, well loved and treasured and kept. I want a librarian, not a collector. A librarian knows the books, treasures them and seeks them. A collector just acquires, and then puts them under glass and never opens them to explore."

I am articulate, wicked, and amusing
Ok, really, what I am doing with my life is what I have seeking to do since I was 16 years old, finding ways to be happy. Very often it is the getting there, not the destination, that is the happymaking.

Satisfaction is all about just enough and never too much and sometimes leaving with just a little bit of want left, that thought that 'next time I want to try... or maybe this with that would be good...' Yes, satisfaction is having and still wanting, and anticipating the next experience.
A kiss should whet the appetite, should herald the coming attractions, should be tasting and exploring and intermission and starts and finishes and all the in between moments. A kiss can set the mood, and it can ruin the mood if neglected. Never underestimate the power of a kiss, a kiss to command, a kiss to implore, a kiss to heal, a kiss to begin, a kiss to surprise, a kiss to tease, a kiss to remind, kisses to move, kisses to follow, kisses to open, kisses to ask, kissed to gift, kissed hello and goodbye and kissed awake and asleep, kissed to calm and kissed to arouse, kissed into a fever and kissed until words are beyond reach.
A satisfying kiss at any time is one that is fully engaged, lips and tongue and hands and skin and bodies touching or not, is felt in every inch of every part of every bit of each kissed. It leaves both satisfied but also in anticipation of the next one, it leaves just a little want behind, some appetite for later.
