Evening, Wisdom and Beauty



We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.



Love: We think about it, sing about it, dream about it,loose sleep worrying about it. When we don't know we have it, we search for it. When we discover it, we don't know what to do with it. When we have it, we fear loosing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we don't know which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and impossible to live without.



I am nothing special of this I am sure. I am just a common woman with common thoughts. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, that has always been enough.



I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry. And I know you do the same things too, So we're really not that different, me and you.

I loved the first one and the third. The waterfall is so impressive and the flower field is so colorful with the misty background.

We are worlds apart but not really. Beautiful post in every way.

Not only that we are captivated by your photos, so are your words. Humans have the capacity feeling those things you mentioned regardless of our skin colour, cultural background and religious traditions. We all experience those same things.

My husband is very, very weird, but I'm not. LOL.

Janie said...

That was beautifully said. And true. Knowing a true and honest love, even for a little while, is more than most people every experience. It is a gift to be treasured.
Matching weirdness! I love that description, and it may well be the secret of a good match.

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
