Where is all the love?

Passionate connections are real...

I see many people together enjoying the company of each other. Those who are lovers act differently then those who are just friends. It is remarkable the difference after all. But, anyway. I love it when people are in love... seeing that embrace regardless of who is about, a kiss on the street corner while waiting for the light to change, the bride looking at her groom with a sparkle in her eye, and seeing the emotion in his eyes as he gives himself to her.

Truly amazing when two people fall in love with each other and how unfortunate when they fall out of love or do something selfish and mess it all up. I have seen that too and it is not at all pleasant. I do hope for their sakes that it is resolved before it becomes so injurious that no one will recover.

I had a wonderful meal and a visit with a dear friend this evening. Neither of us is afraid of speaking our minds and sharing innuendos in such a way it could be teasing but it is more in jest and will always illicit a laugh or smile. It was good to see her and we always seem to keep in touch somehow and also seem to go out for supper together every month or so. I hugged her when she dropped me off and it was a hug of true friendship, one of trust. These are the hugs that mean the most to me and only a few of my friends will let it linger for the extra seconds it takes to calm my soul.

How could you...?

I don’t get to my blog as often as I like but... once in awhile it becomes necessary. There was a time when I made almost a daily entry but I also have a life to live, and live it I shall. I am content with my life as it is and of course I do yearn for some things but... if they never come I will get over it. I do hope to travel around the province a bit and maybe the country but it all depends on the usual things.
The ocean beckons more often than not...
 In the past couple of months I have been to the west coast to dip my feet into the Pacific and a cool weekend trip with Stevie to Regina to shoot, check out the Science Centre and see a movie on the Imax. This was a first for Stevie and I like giving people I care about those “firsts”. It was a great weekend. Of course I took off for the family getaway in Leoville as it has been a tradition for 10 years now and it simply must carry on as I am sure it will. I also had an opportunity to visit a place I have never been
My spiritual advisor. 💗

 I had taken on the responsibility to capture the events of a wedding of a young woman that I have known for several years. Arriving in Kinistino was quite a fun moment. I traveled with Sharlene who “officiated” over the ceremony and met a lot of wonderful people. The wedding and reception itself took place on a farm north of Weldon and it was great. I had the warmest opportunity and shared a moment of emotional release when I hugged Laurel again after many years. It was such an uplifting moment and made the trip even more worthwhile.

Anyway... I see Emerald and Jordan together and I was honoured to be there with them. Then I think back to other couples I know and begin to wonder what keeps them together. I will explain: I have known Miss X for a few years, care about her and also understand her lifestyle and certain preferences. We have spoken and shared candidly about our feelings and emotions so I consider her a friend soul-mate. I feel there is nothing we can’t discuss and if we do, then there is no judgement between us. Only forgiveness.

So, it pains me a great deal when I find out that her partner is sending suggestive photographs to women in order to “lure” them into something. Nothing illegal, but, certainly not within the moral standards of most people. Sure, this could be permissible within their relationship but not when you send a dick pic to another person who is unsuspecting and in their own loving relationship with another. Then to deny it later via text message. My God, what the hell are you thinking and really... how can you be so cruel to the woman you claim you love.

The Glory shines all around us...

In the past I had my moments of stupid behavior but I see how it effects people around me and I see what happens when someone is naïve and totally doesn’t see her partner behaving in such a callous way. I know how it can happen, but not why. I just feel lost for her and what is going on... but I will also keep my nose out of it as in the end it is not my business.

I will be back a lot sooner than 4 something months. In the meantime I pray for my son who is struggling with a nasty disease and I pray for my friend and her partner that he becomes the man she thinks he is.

Be well, and be good to each other...
