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... 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:

So I am going on 71 and still have fond memories...
I thought it would be fun to share some links that I find fascinating.
http://htwins.net/scale2/ ... this shows the scale of the universe
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlHlMom8xwg ... This commercial is worth watching. One of the greatest I have ever seen.
http://www.facebook.com/#!/LoveQuotesAndSayings ... sent to me today from OKCUPID!
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:
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
I'm gainfully employed by the US GOVERNMENT in a system called social security [retired] single and mobile. I'm respectable, nice, and a gentleman. Drawing, painting, Photoshop are my current creative loves;
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
avid interest in photography, learning photoshop
I am a retired Professor of Art and still enjoy Water Media paintings and simply being creative.
Thinking of questions for OKCUPID: i.e., Should Creationism and Intelligent design be taught side by side? [A] Of course [B] I have no problem with that [C] I thought design referred to city planning and there is nothing intelligent there [D ] This issue is more private than the G spot [E} The nuanced differences are meaningless [see Jean Paul Sartre [F] they are the same [see Descartes] [G] Obtuse [see Euclid] [H] One is scientific [Read Horton Hatches an Egg for specificity] [I] Let’s just have fun [See Kinsey Report] ] [L] Lets have more fun [see Ovid] [M] …even more fun [see Anais Nin] [N]….I am exhausted, what was the question?
Number 10 - Life is sexually transmitted.
Number 9 - Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
Number 8 - Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich.
Number 7 - Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
Number 6 - Some people are like a Slinky - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
Number 5 - Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, dying of nothing.
Number 4 - All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
Number 3 - Why does a slight tax increase cost you $800.00, and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?
Number 2 - In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Zoloft to make it normal.
And The Number 1 thought … Life is like a jar of Jalapeno Peppers … what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow
And as someone recently said to me: “Don’t worry about old age … it doesn’t last that long.”listening, being non judgemental
currently: Pirate Adventure, Eight Silly Monkeys, Mr. Brown Can Moo and baby einstein "Poetry" Which is my personal favorite.
EXAMPLE: The rain came up so very quick
It couldn't have come up quicker
I should have brought my hat along
I should have brought my slicker
My hair is wet, my feet are wet
I couldn't be much wetter
I fell into a river once
But this is even better
OCCUPID really need to add to this area "FAVORITE COMMERCIALS" Currently I am fascinated by Jack in the Box series: especially the current one on product placement. It is very creative and funny!
Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra. Etta Jones, Beach Boys, Buddy Holly,
Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Ray Charles, Willie Nelson are artists I still seem to listen to.
Now in film I am eclectic: Nashville (1975), , Raging Bull (1980), The Shawshank Redemption , Modern Times (1936), Taxi Driver (1976), High Noon (1952), Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
trying to learn to cook some Asian meals, any advice?
How to earn money while sleeping
Twice I have married and twice
I have buried loved ones in my life.
The gain from pain does know not
To be terrified by life and living.
Living in life and not waiting for
Distant sunsets to warm my soul.
I am living, becoming, dreaming, doing
In gentle solitude I gently submit to life as
Fantasy and reality blend into one and
I am so willing to be led and become:
you understand what cock sauce is used for or are curious to
know what it is used for, you know that fish sauce does not contain fish and that Polident and polyandry do not go together. If you go to web sites like “who ‘s searching for you” and discover that no one is and still have a great day because you know that any day above ground is a great day. Thinking of bad hair days you know that just getting your hair “perm'ed” and it starts to rain and you do not have a hair cover is called an explosive day then get in touch with me. I really want to know you if you realize that the expression “put out” refers to the garbage because it is Monday and not to you because it is Friday. If you want my top 10 list of gentle ways
to tell a guy you are not interested: then write. I have heard
the best and have no problem in passing them on. If you remember when “gay” meant happy and “discreet” meant modest we are age compatible.
If you speak to 1 or more people in heaven on a daily basis then
we are spiritually compatible. If a casual relationship means we
exchange jokes on line and “friends with benefits” means we
exchange ideas on line then we at least share something in
common. humor, cooking, drawing, painting, art, creative, museums, writing, poetry, short stories are key words for you. You draw, paint create; you like meeting for coffee, good conversation, perhaps fixing a meal togather and watching a good movie if you just enjoy chatting about anything or everything, especially enjoy the exchange of jokes and humor:
'So with a shy smile I took off her blouse, and she looked at me and whispered, “take off my shoes”, so I did. With a calm patience she then said, “now take off my skirt”, so I gently slipped it off and next she asked me to remove her pantyhose, bra and panties and so I did. She looked at my hands on her hips and exclaimed, “I don’t ever want to catch you in my things again”!
We all need a laugh so there ya’ go.
