Heartset; “I love you”


Mmmm, brownies are so good...for a while. What some people mean by “I love you” is "I want to consume you like a delicious brownie." But in truth, they are envious, jealous, and covet everything you’ve worked hard to become, and paid an earthly price for and want a piece of it. It's delicious! It’s …

Prose; Adoration Be Damned


I'm stalking a case for spring in the autumn of my middle age. My assembled energy is diametrically opposite that of needing the validation of an amassed group of imposters pretending to agree so they can drink together later. It's not that I don't like the group, or that I don't occasionally have a very …

Heartset; Love, Affinity, Growth, Fun, & Destiny all needed for Intimacy


I have lost all of the mates I've had so much in common with; either through divorce or death equally. Neither of these things was within my control. We can control ourselves but you learn that you cannot control others. It's one of the big lessons of mating and being intimate with someone. Even if …

Prose; Rear View Mirror


I was looking straight ahead, as usual, driving my car. I very rarely look at the car behind me in my rearview mirror. For some reason, this time I did. She was alone in her car with sunglasses on.  I tried not to stare because somehow, I could tell she was upset. I must have …

Heartset; Breath controls Feelings


via Alone/lonely I was inspired by Cristian Mihai's blog about being alone. I shared the link above. Please read it if you have not. I actually just blogged on "I'm Alone Now" because my nineteen-year-old son left home. I told Cristian that I related exactly to about eighty-percent of how he feels and I'm guessing …

Essay; The Honest Middle Ground


My last post, I made the point that I'm not interested in fawning adoration that leads to possessive marriage. Every woman I know is at a different point with this but it has to do with emotional maturity and financial independence. Most women don't prefer marriage, from what I've gathered, unless they're getting some type …

Heartset; Inspiration Is Just Competition


  We are our own best friend or our own worst enemy. Sometimes being inspired by someone just means you want to compete with them. Competition is a bit of an illusion because there is plenty to go around and you can't compare two people's lives to each other. Thus, there is no real competition. We're …

Essay; 10 Reasons It’s Hard For Smart Women To Find Love


Nicole Timmons said what I usually say this time so I have a back-up. I love back-up which is so rare for me. There are few, very few allies for this blogger. By Nicole Timmons Finding love is not an easy feat for anyone. If you are a woman who is of a higher intellect, …

Essay; Sexual Shaming of Men


  I've been thinking about this issue for about a year now but it coalesced last night when I read a quite long, but well-thought-out blog post on this site that made light of how many women absorb shame from men when we have sex with them. Before that, we're fine, happy with ourselves, like …

Everyday Spirituality Vs. Materialism


Materialistic values demean intuition and praise rationality, are seen and enforced by the media, educational institutions (schools), churches, behaviorists, (psychology and psychiatry), modern M.D. and healthcare. Take your pills and make sure you have a bulletproof backpack are their mantras. "Be realistic! Make sense!" Whose sense? Add governments, banks, and similar ilk in there. As …
