Slipped mind

hello world.
hello wednesday.
hello white sheets
on the first day of this period.

” this is your life
and
it
is
ending
one minute at a time. ”

i lay for a long time in the dark last night feeling the cotton under my skin
talking myself out and in
of getting up to write this poem.
i didn’t.
i can’t remember what i was thinking
but i was sure that it was good
at the time.

I wrote this a while ago, but am attempting publishing from a new platform *wink
someone got a new toy
love
me

the only kind of love as i understand it that there really is

i have heard these words preached over, spouted, as a snide remark, but not until i applied them to myself did they have any value…you may have read these, heard them, lived with them, but have you ever taken them in?

Love is patient : Would it serve me to be more serene/forgiving/tolerant of how i am right now?

Love is kind : In what way can i show myself courtesy/generosity/warmth?

It does not envy: Is there bitterness/resentment/longing that i can let go of?

It does not boast: Have i been blowing hot air ? Talking to hear the sound of my own voice?

It is not proud: Has the faith people have put in me gone to my head?

It is not rude: Have i been sarcastic/flippant/violent?

It is not self-seeking: Have i been so lost in “finding/expressing/defending myself” that i have not been present in my life?

It is not easily angered: How does my fuse look? What can i do to calm/centre/settle myself?

It keeps no record of wrongs: Have i been critical of others? Can i let an old grudge go?

When i find myself feeling loveless this is my “go to” list. Without fail it gives me a starting point for where my attitude or behaviour needs to be adjusted. It gives me a focus point, some guidelines. Sometimes it gives me the brutal truth about myself.

Then i ask myself “If you saw someone you love feeling how you are feeling now, what would you do for them?”

i do that for myself, even if it feels awkward!

with love as always

Can we get a little more truth in our sex?

I posted a link to my facebook timeline today of Cindy Gallop launching make love not porn – watch the video here

The one comment it drew was “Gross beyond imagination”…shock is still making waves through my body…

I love her website, and am looking forward to what grows out of it. www.makelovenotporn.com

Please have a look, and tell me what you think?

While we’re talking about looking at things tonight, 4 June, the full moon is in Sagittarius and, June 6 sees the transit of Venus across the sun.

with love and longing
