On Being

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around ~Leo Buscaglia

Sometimes I make myself weary. It’s the most remarkable thing, but in the wearing thin I realize, even at this most minute, infinitesimal moment, I am just happy I am. And I am happy you are too and we are we and with another friend we make three. What more could we want from this life? It reminds me of a poem of sorts. So for you, and I, for we and three, I hope today we will practice to be drunk. To be drunk on life. That is my wish for thee.

Be Drunk
by Charles Baudelaire
translated by Louis Simpson

You have to be always drunk. That’s all there is to it—it’s the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you: “It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish.”

  1. Well it was a two for one day, I was home late. I have to say you look stunning in both blogs. The on being single one you look breathtaking and radiant. I got what you had to say on being single, as a matter of fact when I got to the take from I could have sworn you were somehow in my head. I can’t tell you how much of that is why I am single. I am a Bitch lol but not the rest of those things lol. I have a very unique belief of what a bitch actually is and she is not to be confused with someone that is bitchy, self important, always right and defines the me me me syndrome. To me Bitch is what you are called when you don’t wish to buy into someone else’ s Bullshit. It is a self preservation tactic that I have honed over the years and it protects my personal space from invasion by the unwanted. I don’t socialize alot, I don’t like too many people. I am kind to those that sincerely need those acts of kindness and I have deep friendships with a select few. I can be soft and I can be very remote and standoffish to those that don’t know me, and to those I say it is because you didn’t try hard enough. So yup I am a bitch. For your second post all I have to say is YOU BETTER LOCK YOU CLOSET i WANT IT. Love you dollface….one of my select few ❤

      1. lol, you have to understand my definition Cao. I am not insulting myself by saying that I am A Bitch I just perceive it to be something other than what others do. Since I became an adult at like 12 I learned many things about life and about people. I always used to set myself up for disappointment by expecting too much from people. You know the ideal, treat others the way you wish to be treated. I have sadly come to the realization that is just an unrealistic standard that I have placed on the human race. Again I do not insult myself I actually feel I compliment myself because I have come so very far since I was still a very naive trusting child…I do love you to pieces and there are several others I am close to as well, as for the rest, I am polite and I help as many as I can that can not help themselves but other than that, I am who I am and it was many many hard miles to get me here… Muahs!!! Hugs and I will be over to raid that closet early in the AM, And I am not saying I don’t have a generous heart I am only saying I guard it very very closely ❤

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
