----- A SENSE OF THE MIRACULOUS IN EVERY DAY LIFE"
Well, I'll just pretend I am writing to that one special person. What can I tell you about myself? A large part of me is the same as you, with you, ---we feel completely at ease with each other. You'd know me in a single word, spoken or even written. I'm kinda tired of not having you around. These things don't seem to be easily found.
At first, I think that you would frighten me quite a bit. It's easy to look at you an think "you are just right". It would be easy to become infatuated with you and I hope to do so. But I'd have my doubts that I would be up to the task of you, that I'd disappoint you............more scary is I think I would not live up to my own expectations of what I should be for you. Does that make sense?
In answer to your questions---Yes of course I love dogs. Duh. And my name---LOL. "My name is for my friends" and I don't even know you yet. As for being alien, I prefer to think of myself as being merely different. And yes---you are someone without whom, I am not completely myself. Some of us are just wired that way. INTJ am I. If you see that I have looked in on you, I am pondering, and I do so too long. But I am patient and careful and take my time. My life will be right before you enter it.
I teach---does it matter what I teach? I seem to get a good reaction from many of my students. That is most of what keeps me going....y'know--makes life fun. My job is fun. It is also demanding. You would understand the commitment I have to my job which must be an obsession/compulsion in order to do it well. Teaching---you can't really do it well if it is not part of you.
I could say a great deal about myself, but then that is just window dressing and packaging. It's the dynamic and interactive part of a person that defines them. You know that and know that you can't get to know someone without the interaction. So, when you are ready.......I'd spend a lifetime getting to know someone and I'd know them better than anyone else, and yet hope to still have a lifetime of new things to learn about them. Perfection is a quest, and not directly achievable.
I realize I've not said much about myself here. Again---window dressing. Ask, interact, and I'll tell you. The better part of me is the discourse itself. I'd like to have that dialogue with you.
