I have two sons, 20 and 24; the 20 year old lives with me part time. They are by far the best thing I have done in my life. I remember a moment in my life in a hospital delivery room when I could not imagine what my life would be like with children in it, and then the very next moment never being able imagining my life without them. I also remember a time looking and my first son as a baby and thinking, "I can't wait until he can talk"; and then two years later thinking, "Does this kid ever shut up?" I love my sons. From the moment they are born they wrap themselves around your heart and never unwind.
I had a third son I lost to SIDS 21 years ago. I only tell you this because this event defines me as a person. I live my life the way I do because he taught me that life was meant to be lived. He also taught me you need to love and not hate and if you don’t laugh every day you are not really living.
I believe that each of has a gift and the very lucky ones discover that gift and learn to appreciate it. Mine is the ability to see the world in a way that makes sense in the lens of my camera and in my mind’s eye. My poetry is to share those images with the world. That is about as deep as I get on the subject.
I am looking for someone who wants to date and see where things go. I appreciate smart independent women. The kind of woman who wants a man in her life, but has a life of her own too.
More to come ...
