Hello ALL. . . .or some days " O Hell !" hehehe
Been too busy these days with work. . . .intense some days, but I thrive on it. . . just i don't have all the time I'd like for blog and writing to friends. Since I must discipline myself to keep up and ahead of class work, seminars, etc, I cut myself a lot of slack when it comes to blog n stuff. I need to be in the mood to be creative. . . .just as I also think we need to create leisure to love. . . . . Seems to me a lot of peeps are just too busy to live and love. . so they settle in to drab tired living. . . .with just no time for play. . . and lovers, I think, need play time. . .and for that you need to create ample space and time.
Or am I just too idealistic? a dreamer. . . yeah, i admit to being a dreamer. . . you need to have dreams, to follow your dreams. . . .or else succumb to a frustrated life. You think that happens? I look at my parents. . . they've raised three children, done a great job and then have successful careers. . . .Dad is a lawyer with a large Boston firm. Mom is a professor of literature at a smallish community college. She chose this so as to have time to live. . . she found the race at a large East coast university too demanding, limiting the time she wanted to be a lover and spouse, mother to her children. She wanted and made space for time to follow and nourish her dreams so as to have much to offer in life, without ever being drained and empty.
They are best friends, lovers, a couple very alive.
I remind myself often of a line I've heard like forever. . . it seems. It's from the biblical book of Esdras, Hebrew Scriptures. "The vision has its place. . . .Where there is no vision the people perish." To me it says we make time for our dreams, for those things closest to our hearts. . . or else we perish." Another way to say it mightbe. . . .we become "dead men walking".
There. . .I step down from the bema. . . .LOL
ciao ciao. . .
