I am by nature a very social animal. I am an extrovert in the highest order. I LOVE A PARTY! Last night was a lovely evening, lots of good food and drink and fellowship. Things swung into high gear around 7:30 pm, folks started arriving. I looked great and felt great! The conversations were interesting and deep and funny and sexy and outrageous. A good time was had by all! Although I must confess, I DRANK TOO MUCH WINE! I am feeling a bit sluggish this morning, but happy. A tall glass of orange juice, a light breakfast and 2 ibuprofen and I will be good as new. Plus I have to get to Church.

NOPE, there are no pictures! Why? Because some of life's events need to just be experienced and not captured.

The Love List 98-99
  • 98. Carries me in his heart.
  • 99. Rests easy knowing that I, alone Am for him. Divinely.

Oh to be carried in someone's heart...this is for you my twin; though written for you on my behalf by e.e. cummings without knowledge that it was being written on my behalf for you, I assure you it is no less yours!!!

i carry your heart with me
(i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it
(anywhere i go you go,my dear;
and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)

i fear no fate
(for you are my fate,my sweet)
i want no world
(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart
(i carry it in my heart)

by: ee cummings

Today I present you this poem and the knowledge that I carry you in my heart. Tomorrow I pray that GOD presents to you that individual for whom you are the missing rib for which he has searched long and hard who will carry you in his heart as well!

I do believe that everyone wants to be carried in their heart by a significant other...husband...lover. I know that I do at least.

This is a really good list. I may have to complete this task as well. I am sure that it brings so much clarity as to what you will and will not accept from your next beau.

Be blessed!

Sharon dearest!
Thank you ever so much for this! I love it and had forgotten about this poem...I carry so many in my head and heart! But you knew my spirit was singing for this particular piece. It is exactly what I was thinking and feeling! I do so appreciate your prayer to God that I connect with my earthly soul mate. I suspect I will in due time. I believe that.

Yes you should ABSOLUTELY pen your Love List. Focusing on this list has been an extraordinary experience. It has shed light on what I beleive I need for a harmonious mate. It was illuminating in the best way about myself too. I just sort of thought about what I have done in love for the sake of another and decided to not accept anything less on my behalf from a lover.

Sistah Love - CONGRATS on the party/release! I totally understand NOT taking pix - though sometimes when I look at other events where I have taken flix I'm motivated to take them at ALL:-). But, sometimes I think being the photographer interrupts my flow of interacting with party-goers;-). It's a challenge being the host AND social butterfly. LOL! U GO!!

Sistah Sharon - thanx for sharing that wonderful poem. I luv ee cummings.

Hey CapCity,
Yes I made the very conscious decison not to be host and photographer. Plus I had a very specific feel I wanted to have for the evening and I achieved. Trust me there will be other parties and lots of photos!

And yes that ee. cummings poem is divine! I love Sharon! We are so very connected!
