As I key this in, December is coming, and there is already snow on the ground now in November for cross country skiing. It will likely get colder, so those hand warmers are good to keep close by. And it just feels warmer to me to ski with someone who likewise enjoys the rhythm of xc skiing.
It is Oct, 2014 .... reading The Fourth Turning by Strauss & Howe. The 4th Turning presents a very interesting perspective on the characteristics of different generations (Boomers, GenX--also identified as 13ers, and Millennials) as well as the concept of historical cycles (major breakdowns every 80-100 years, i.e., 1770s Revolution to 1860s Revolution to 1940s WWII to 2020??) that repeat themselves routinely over the years just as seasons do during the year. These authors include a lot of very convincing historical data going back to times B.C. Not a doomsday scenario, but very thoughtfully written. Very interesting and very scary .... especially as the book was written in 1997, and the last 17 years are eerily similar to the ideas presented.
Many movies, often the one I just saw as I must be unconsciously still processing it; Monster's Ball; Green Mile; especially those with Morgan Freeman like the Bucket List, Million Dollar Baby, Shawshank Redemption, and Glory; Heartland, Big Chill, Dead Poets Society, True Grit, Mystic River, Gone with the Wind; Good Morning Vietnam!; Mrs. Doubtfire, Gran Torino and the list goes on.
Food: What don't I like! I pretty much stay away from fast food as it is too slow getting rid of the weight past the age of 40 yo. Of course, I love Italian, Thai, Greek, pizza (often I just buy a good premade crust and make the rest), Mexican, Cuban, Ethiopian, Vietnamese, good Chinese, and on.
Music: good old Classic Rock, and a lot of rock since that time as well; jazz like Miles Davis; Pat Methany and others; classical....plus some music does not really fit a category. I usually fall to sleep listening to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata lately.
Today (Dec2013) I listened to the soundtrack of the movie "Big Chill" and found the old Motown hits quite moving. The Rolling Stones can really move my feet, but old Motown like "When a Man loves a Woman" and "My Girl" and "Tracks of My Tears" (guess I really like Smokey Robinson) can really move my heart. On that note, I am looking for that special lady who can make the "tracks of my tears" more a thing of the past, and be the "sunshine on a cloudy day." That may be you .... yes?
Thinking of older music, I am truly looking for my Queen of Hearts (as in Eagles "Desperado") after my past experience with a Queen of Diamonds. I have learned that a QofD is not my true desire, and a QofH -- a true friend and lover -- would be my best bet.
Nov 14, 2014: A couple of weeks a well renowed composer Stephen Paulus passed away. I feel very fortunate that I happened to grow up on the same street in Roseville just four houses away from Steve (I never knew him as Stephen). Frankly, I was not very familiar with his choral compositions however, I have become fond of listening to them via YouTube while on the internet. Very peaceful, and it gives me a sense of connection to the Steve of my childhood. I remember Steve as the upbeat guy that I played basketball with ..... not as much basketball as I wanted to though. Steve always had soooo many piano lessons. The world is in a much better place because of his musical accomplishments that resulted from so much time devoted to his artistry. His hook shot was good, but his legacy related to his musical compositions will live on and continue to make so many people happy every day
No, no, no, two things that I have worked hard on and am glad to have them (and there are more, but these come to mind) are:
Sense of Gratitude
Sense of Humor
I know I have had a lot of help getting the gratitude part, and am humble enough to admit that, plus I recall some distinct childhood disappointments that made developing a sense of humor invaluable to get by those rough spots in life.
Of course, I assume everyone feels family, friends and health belong here, I mean, that is just basic...........gratitude. So... some of things that just make the moment for me include: great coffee, touch which can include just an emotional connection, good music, and a sense of purpose. Those, again, just come to mind.
But now Christmas 2014 is coming, and I am not going to wait around for Santa anymore. Maybe there is a Santa, but in the meantime, I hope to find that connection as I sense it will not just "be there" somehow.....
You seriously enjoy a man to share outside activities such as bicycling, cross country skiing, hiking and camping. And love live theatre, great jazz, classical music, and the blues.
As with life in general, everyone has their likes and preferences, and I don't view dating as ordering a pizza with a required set of toppings, and so overall, I want to share life with someone who is a participant in life, not just an onlooker.
