In Honor and Loving Memory of Lodi

There are so many things to thank you for. You were an unconditional and steadfast friend to me and my family for many many years. Thank you for being a constant in my life and always believing in me, as a Mom and a person. Thank you also for being a positive role model and mentor to my daughter and an example for her of a true gentleman, with a kind heart and gentle spirit. You have left a mark on our hearts and lives and you will not be forgotten, my friend. Rest in eternal peace and freedom.

My Edge

I am the edge I seek,
a crossroads of divinity.

The Enchanted (Cont'd.) a.k.a. Turns Disenchanted

Not many things piss me off.
Do many things piss you off?

(Reminds me of a Chris Caffery song for those fellow fans out there).

I used to be a huge Oprah fan. I guess I'm still a big Oprah fan, just no longer huge. She's done and said some things of late that have chipped away at my respect level for her but, hey, ya can't please everyone all the time so I'll let her slide :)
I caught bits and pieces of her show the other day outta the ear that's in the back of my head.....
Seems she had some guy on there who wrote a book about what women can do to keep their husband happy so he doesn't run off and have an affair. (Feel free to correct me if you saw the whole show and I totally misunderstood the entire thing----in fact, I kinda hope somebody DOES tell me I misunderstood it).
I didn't have time to actually sit down and devote to watching this show. But, would I have wanted to?
I kept thinking I couldn't be hearing what I was hearing. And, on Oprah?
But no, I DID hear it.
And there were women on there giving other women advice?
And this guy is some doctor or well-renowned, highly-educated something something, at the least?
WHAT in the world?

OK, something like that just PISSES ME OFF.
Let me ask you - have you ever seen a book about what a man can do to keep HIMSELF happy and to keep HIMSELF from having an affair?
Does the responsibility for a man's appropriate behavior lie in his wife's lap?
Sounds more like a mother role to me.
Also sounds one sided and like alot of work.

Admittedly, I am no expert in relationships.

The Enchanted

So, a friend of mine's blog got me thinking (thanks Ter).....
about relationships.
or partnerships.
or marriages.
or whatever we even call them these days.

Just part of what Ter wrote (which may or may not make sense taken out of its original context).....

" certainly has taken me a long time.
and.....once you touch it, doesn't mean you've got it.
it's a constant thing to work at.
it can drift away in a moment..."

That's some heavy duty stuff right there, no matter what "it" is to you.

I was thinking about how there's an enchanting phase of most relationships. It's the phase where the other person helps you or does things for you or offers to you because they want to, not because they feel somehow responsible to. Yanno?
Well, and how about you (Tina)? How long does the phase last for you?

Terri is so right. Once you touch it, doesn't mean you've got it.
And it IS a constant thing to work at.
And it CAN drift away in a moment.

Wonder why God/dess makes it that way?

I've eaten the sun so my tongue has been burned of the taste.....

Funny how just one song can exemplify an entire era of one's life......
