Oh, shit … there’s love

I am rendered cooly dumbstruck

There’s a certain young woman who has me enchanted.

Beautiful, isn’t she?

What am I asking?

Of course, you don’t know her.

And it doesn’t help that I am private about these things.

You’ll have to take my word for it then.

She is absolutely gorgeous.

Any-who, she has me at a disadvantage.



Our emotions around them.

Intimate relationships.

Those dynamics are something else.

While they boggle the mind, they skillfully pull the heartstrings this way and that.

And, here’s what’s fascinating: love — with its tendency to have us hurt from time to time — always manages to thrust us back into the fray, imperfections, past experiences and all.

There’s love. Walk toward it then.

A note to self.
