My favorite word is V'Ivre. It's French vernacular meaning 'intoxicated by life'.
Get (and spread) all the joy, laughter, mischief, positivity, pleasure, and LOVE you can.
Appreciate and thoroughly enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
It astonishes me how everyone adds pain and suffering to their lives by their own volition, completely unnecessarily. That stuff will come, on it's own, no matter what. That's life. And it's enough to deal with. No need to pre-empt difficultly with your own added BS. I find unnecessary drama repellant. Such a waste of precious time.
There is nothing sexier than a well-developed sense of humor. It reflects a high level of intelligence and wisdom.
Be charming and witty, and down comes the draw-bridge.
Have heart, warmth, and vulnerability, and I'm in trouble.
If it's anything to do with art, nature, or science.. I'm down. I love to be intellectually, creatively, emotionally stimulated. I nerd out on poetry, literature, cosmology, astronomy, biology, evolution, philosophy, and history.
I work out hard 5 days a week. I'm trying to get my body as strong as it can (naturally) be. It's fun. And *$#%ing challenging. I'm using the ancient greek ideal physique as a target. I'm almost there. :) (I just saw the David and the other great Renaissance sculptures in Florence - Michelangelo was a bad-ass rock star. Seeing the David in person literally makes you gasp.)
My ideal woman is soulful, authentic, huge-hearted, funny, charming, genuine, easy-going, intellectual, curious, considerate, honest, brave, and above all, kind.
I'm really good peeps.
You be too.
“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” - Louise Erdrich (The Painted Drum)
“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good, and the very gentle, and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too, but there will be no special hurry.” - Ernest Hemingway
"They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'" - Jack Kerouac (On the Road)
