I think that you are a magic person, one that are born rarely and often misjudge by the contemporary.
Long time ago I thought about you and your position (but never wrote about it until now), how things would have been if you weren’t there… I’m talking about #John Lennon and #The Beatles. I know many puts the blame on you for dismantles of the band and for John’s attitude after that… why “blame” I ask?!
What was wrong with their split? Nothing in my opinion, a band of boys split, that’s life in music industry…
What happens after the split? John started to make good music, he’s attitude with the world was proper; he even started to wear those cool glasses (I bet was Yoko’s idea). And he was in a relationship with a muse, very lucky guy!
We are somehow born with this idea encrypted in our brains: competition leads to progress! False, I say…maybe if we add “but very slow”
I understand the concept of competition, I understand its values and utility in some areas like, sports, entertainment, or fun ( who arrives first gets a bier )… even business sometimes.
I am not against competing, just not for progress! I am bothered by the fact we all accept it as normal and applicable everywhere, we just apply it with ease no matter the situation.
Being a parent for my son and my parent’s child it’s something new to me, it came with a lot of dilemmas and sometimes disputes especially because now I have two pairs of parents 🙂 … don’t get me wrong, I thank God for that. Family means everything to me, it’s my universe and my home no matter where I am. So, my new position caught me a bit unprepared and I’m not sure I managed it in the best way.
When my son came in our life it was a very expected moment and a boundless joy, some of you with kids surely get me here. I and my better half was prepared for almost anything, not well trained for all the effort but open to any and all the extra that was needed.
Beauty comes from everywhere when let free. Just look around and capture the beauty of any and everything surrounding us, even where you less expected. We are definitely surrounded by beauty! Trees, sky, sun, moon, stars, grass, oceans, mountains… A very long list of perfection that’s everywhere.
Where are we, as people in all of that, are we beautiful, do we go with what surrounds us? I guess we are and we do. We were born in and from beauty, we have it in us. All we have to do it’s to set it free, to show it like the newest & coolest thing we got.
It’s obvious that we like beauty and we need it. We are searching for beauty in anything from clothes to gadgets, from accessories to places… we have it in us, a lot of it actually so no need to hustle.
Love is about desire, giving, sharing, compromise … and other mysterious elements.
Are they mysterious indeed or is it just us that gives that mystery touch to love? I don’t think it’s a mystery, not at all. I’m not saying mystery is absent, I’m saying that love can be explained and understood and that mystery is in fact life.
Moreover, magic (not mystery) is all around when love is present and we all felt it at some point.
I think love is simple to explain and to understand if we pay some attention and we are interested in loving someone and not just impress or conquer by any mean or even worse just to be with someone and not alone…
Today is a special day, my half’s birthday. Happy birthday love, many kisses!
I’m at over six thousand miles away, missing you, crave for your presence and miss you again while I #love you with all of me.
Distance is tough when in love and tougher when special occasions are missed, I can tell you that. I thought of you all day and all night and another day and night since distance allows me to extend your birthday 🙂 double the joy and double the pain.
I think that all my feelings should be capped and preserved until we’ll reunite so you can enjoy them also… so I choose to put them in a bag and wait for you my love.
I’ll call #Las Vegas “She” because it suits better with all the qualities I found in it and also with my vision for this story, it is a love story after all.
We’ve know each other for some time and we started courting each other about two years ago when we decided to give it a try, to see if we can live together. This year I made the step, as “She” couldn’t move from current location (logistical issues). Reception was over expectations: fireworks, limousine, champagne, whole nine yards.
After few days of laying together we started meeting other couples: “Store” family, “Restaurant” family, “Sightseeing” family, “Weather” family and many more, all receiving us, as a couple, in a very friendly manner as if we’ve known each other for years. Nice feeling!
About four months ago I found out that I was infected with hepatitis c virus. Not good news! After some additional tests I got even worse news, I was in stage 4, the final stage of the disease. My diagnostic was chronic hepatitis c with compensated cirrhosis. Doctors came to the conclusion that I was infected 30 years ago when I suffered an accident and needed blood transfusion. I got scared, badly, mostly because all the prognostics were not in my favor and living in Romania wasn’t an advantage either. I realized shortly after that there are a lot of people infected, that there are many who have the virus and don’t know about it (I was one of them), and how dangerous the virus is. Basically it’s a disease with no, or very mild, symptoms. It advances quietly in years without any sign (my case) and it can be fatal.
So Golf is big; it’s bigger than us. But golf is not what you’re thinking of. As U2 says in their song “Please” (ok, their song was about LOVE… and love, I’ll give you this, is “bigger” than golf).
But golf is big, very! I’ve been in love with golf since I’ve discovered it, back in my early 20’s. Since then I’ve played, I’ve hosted golf events, I published a golf magazine and I was one of the founders of Romanian Golf Federation (WOW, a lot of golf in my life J). With years passing I am now just a golf enthusiast and I love to play as often as I can (not a good player but a happy one).
Nothing… Or, nothing about it out of the ordinary. So, why bother write about it? Simple, we all have relationships and we are always in search for answers to various questions.
I have some relationships, friends, family, colleagues, etc… I’m quite special, aren’t I? 🙂
Seems like there are a lot of connections between them, more than I thought. What I want to point out is the attitude regarding others, how much I am alike with family, friends, colleagues, etc.?
With my family I am loving, protective, close, supportive, truthful and also demanding and rigorous.
