Love Without Definition

paper-7

Most, enlightened beings, understand, ‘what love does not do!’  Yet, it appears, with the world; in particular, America, that love does need an updated…clarification.

IN which to understand it better.

Sad but true.  The highest step we can climb and/or the deepest footing into despair…is one simple emotion.  The Art of Love.  And, it is fading into tweets, face time and other tangible matter, to which, it does not belong!

Not just love, as in lovers, soul mates,spouses…Love in friendship, kinship, four-legged, two-legged, whatever.  Love does indeed conquer all.  When it is blossoming?  It has the aroma of our most memorable moments.  Secret times, alone, when we are reminded of such things as; Grandma’s homemade jam.  Stolen seconds with someone else..and, as they depart, you still have their scent on your skin.  Gently caressing all the right things in life.

Love, in opposition?  Is, nonetheless, just as poetic!

 

The women, a stranger, who passes by in a whim.  And, for just the slightest tick of time, a remembrance of the love that got away.  The heart break is just as fresh as it had been years before.  An ache.  A loss of breath.  The anxiety that only a high speed carnival ride…can compare to.

The idea that beyond the great physical barrier, a fist sized, heart;  there is poignant, passion .  In all worlds,  above words, between and below the fine lines…lies, a wonderful tendering ache.

 

tom-2-quote-220x220 The In Between of Love by Tom Robbins

  • Nobody else can provide love for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.
  • Tell love you want a memento of it and obtain a lock of its hair. Burn the hair in a dime-store incense burner with yin/yang symbols on three sides. Face southwest. Talk fast over the burning hair in a convincingly exotic language. Remove the ashes of the burnt hair and use them to paint a mustache on your face. Find love. Tell it you are someone new. It will stay.
  • Love easily confuses us because it is always in flux between illusion and substance, between memory and wish, between contentment and need.
  • People are never perfect, but love can be.
  • …our lives are not as limited as we think they are, all things are possible, laughter is holier than piety, freedom is sweeter than fame, and in the end it’s love and love alone that really matters.
  • Love, and, red hair, is caused by sugar and lust.

What is not Perfect Love by RandomwordbyRuth

  • Love is not fashion
  • Love is blind
  • Love cannot be bought
  • Love is not bias
  • Love is not found.  It is not in politics.  It is not in religion.  It isn’t even in…our social media.

WE should not believe that of the most exquisite of experiences, love. Is a choice. Placed ever so unevenly balanced, before humans…LOVE is not a controversy.  It is there by virtue of a Higher Power,  alone!  A personal experience devoted to manipulate us, antagonize us, provide us with the wrong road-maps.  To consider LOVE as something, that words, laws, and lowly, dull, strangers, can give us a definition for… Is to underestimate…the power of LOVE.

 

My Space: New Hampshire’s Sister March – 2017

 

Much as I hate to be political…Not!

I felt the need to voice my concern about my future…the the future of others!

Mexican-American citizens may worry that their undocumented relatives — even their parents — will be deported. Latinos who were brought to this country as children and to whom Mexico or Guatemala is as foreign as they would be to any of us are worried, as well.

African-Americans, Muslims and other “others” may wonder if they will suffer from the boost that Trump’s victory provides for alt-right and white supremacist groups. It’s worrisome when exclusionary hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan find something to celebrate in a President Trump.

Who else should worry?

Citizens with pre-existing medical conditions may be concerned about what will happen to them if Obamacare is repealed. And 20 million Americans who have healthcare insurance for the first time may wonder how they will fare under Trumpcare.

LGBT citizens are worried, with good reason, that their recently affirmed right to wed will be reversed by a Trump-appointed Supreme Court. Religious freedom laws are likely to find favor in such a Court, which means that gays, lesbians and transgenders may not be able to participate in our society in the same way as other citizens.

Under a Trump presidency, some women may worry that the government will take over their right to control their own bodies when it comes to pregnancy. Prominent voices on the right call for a ban on all abortions, even in cases of rape and incest.

With Russia right next door, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are probably worried, since Trump has suggested diminished support for our NATO allies. Iranian moderates — they are significant in Iranian politics — face a setback with the promised abrogation of the nuclear deal. And Trump’s casual attitude about Saudi Arabia’s acquisition of nuclear weapons is sure to revive the push for such weapons in Iran. That should worry all of us.

I had the good fortune to not go to the Women’s March on Washington…2017.  I had done many Marches, in the past.  This time, I needed to be closer to home!

Though, the ‘Sister March in Concord, New Hampshire’ was a much smaller version of Washington’s; it had been a mere mimicry of the country’s new and improved…bigotry of equality…for all.

The crowd had been well-mannered and very open to good conversation.  

New Hampshire has the ‘whitest’ population in America.  I believe the stat is somewhere around 91%.  Which is what it is!  Slowly New Hampshirites are becoming more vast in the melting pot arena.  However, in my lifetime, we will remain mostly cracker and less, cracker and pepper and variations there of.

What struck me had been the one preacher of African-American decent.  And, the obvious, Muslim woman standing next to him…holding essentially, Trump’s America…signs.

One had been about Pro-Life and what ‘Christ’ would have wanted.  The other about…another minority for ‘Make America Great Again’ antics.

My partner and I are openly gay in New Hampshire.  Therefore, we have an acute understanding of feeling like we need to…go along, in order to…get along, in a crowd.

The minorities, at the state capital, that had felt differently about liberal America…coming to end, were very few.  But they were on the scene.

The American dream wished for by some of these sects, is no longer in option.   As stated in the above mentioned article.

However, I felt it might be necessary to point out other groups that may see the light dimming for their hopes and dreams.

– Animal Right’s Activist

-Persons wishing to see marijuana legalized

-Native Americans

-Persons with above average intelligence

-Groups in promotion of climate control and/or in opposition of Global Warming

-Atheist

-Agnostics

-Small Business Entrepreneurs

-Anyone who wishes to write and/or speak in full sentences

-Anyone wanting to use words with more than four letters

Course, the list could go on for quite sometime.

So to break things up I would like to offer one of Trump’s thoughts about ‘Making America Great…Again!’

“Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys wearing yarmulkes… Those are the only kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else…Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that’s guy’s lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks,”
