I have a serious side as well as a humorous side by the way. Our culture has emphasized “mating” all my life…in high school it was “going steady” and later being married and having children: this has led I think to a cultural dysphoria for those of us that now travel a path less traveled….meaning we are single and find spiritual, emotional and physical rewards with being single. Solitude is the opposite of being lonely. Deepak Chopra expressed this concept in this manner: “To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which many people are afraid of. ..Because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions. Solitude is such a great word. It implies so much more than the word "alone" does. Solitude includes a depth of experience, of an internalized and deep interaction between yourself and multiversity. So… assuming we share a common goal why not simply have a cup of coffee, talk… chat a little, perhaps you will find a friend as well as I…anything beyond that of course is dependent on that elusive concept called “chemistry”. I am very comfortable will you taking the lead on this path less traveled.
Sunday Morning Sex
Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's house to visit her 95 year-old grandmother and comfort her. When she asked how her grandfather had died, her grandmother replied, "He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning." Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that 2 people nearly 100 years old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. "Oh no, my dear," replied granny. "Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong." She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, "He'd still be alive if the ice cream truck hadn't come along."
If you do not laugh at this, then you are seriously depressed...I understand that most are looking for “true love” when life is about constant changes...we know that enduring relationships take time to evolve. In the end all you can do is find what you love to do and give yourself to it. Find what you love in yourself and love that. What you love in the world and celebrate it. And if you are indeed lucky: find those that love and love them for who they are. It is only when I am creating something, anything… that I love myself so much that I am capable of truly loving another. Humor is of course vital in any loving relationship.
This story reflects the type of humor I enjoy; so have a chuckle on me...;) Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink". Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of:
> MOUNT & DO.
> Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.
So I am going on 70 and still have fond memories...one more...
Four guys have been going to the same fishing trip for many years.
Two days before the group is to leave, Kevin's wife puts her foot down and tells him he isn't going.
Kevin's mates are very upset that he can't go, but what can they do.
Two days later the three mates get to the camping site only to find Kevin sitting there with a tent set up, firewood gathered, and dinner cooking on the fire.
"Shit ,Kevin how long you been here? How did you talk your missus into letting you go ?"
"Well, I've been here since last night. After dinner at home yesterday evening, I was sitting in my chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and said, 'Guess who ?'"
I pulled her hands off, and she was wearing sexy brand new lingerie. She said had been reading 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and she had a devilish look in her eyes!!!
She took my hand and led me to our bedroom. The room had candles and rose petals all over.
On the bed she had handcuffs, and ropes !
She told me to tie her up and cuff her to the bed, so I did.
And then she said, "Do whatever you want."
So I got here early.
I thought it would be fun to share some links that I find fascinating.

I have no idea where my life is going right now... just seeing where the journey takes me..... however I have always had 3 simple rules in living…
1. If you don't go after what you want,
You'll never have it.
2. If you don't ask the answer,
Will always be No.
3. If you don't step forward,
You'll always be in the same place.
So rule number 4...just be honest: as Mother Theresa said, “Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.” Thinking a bit about transparancy...here is a fun quizz:
There are 4 questions. Don't miss one.
1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
Stop and think about it and decide on your answer before you scroll down.
The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door.
This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.
2 How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
Did you say, open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?
Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and
close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your
3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals
attend .... except one. Which animal does not attend?
Correct Answer: The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there.
This tests your memory. Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly,
you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.
4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by alligators, and
you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?
Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the
alligators are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn
quickly from your mistakes.
According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the
professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively proves the theory that most professionals do not have the brains of a four-year-old. I DID NOT GET ANY ANSWER RIGHT!!! [SIGH] How did you do?
A major quest Buddhists attempt is to understand is that of impermanence and the difficulty there is when we want anything to be permanent…the reality is that everything changes and we can either accept that reality or suffer…so … for some reason most of us choose to suffer.
I really enjoy chatting with women and I have learned most of what I know from listening to women. There’s always more than meets the eye…and for that very reason, the best part(s) of getting to know someone new are the pieces of themselves that unfold along the way.
I hope you enjoy chatting about life, death, grieving, recovery and almost anything...If you like meeting for coffee, good conversation, perhaps fixing a meal togather and watching a good movie then by all means email me. I want the feeling of falling in love, but I am not ready for the act of being in love. Falling in love is a process of allowing trust to replace feelings of being vulnerable, and I am now on that particular path. My perfect "chat" match has humor, intelligence and independence, enjoys sharing thoughts about most most anything

QUOTES I LIKE: "Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away"
"I am not upset that you lied to me, I am upset from now on I
can not believe you"
FUN is something like walking on the beach eating an icecream cone
