A Man I'd Like to Love
Friendship with a Man--what I'd like in a partner relationship.

Friendship with a Man


How do I want it? Let me share the ways.
I want the comfort I'd have with a loving mother,
The aliveness I feel with a you-can-say-it-all friend,
The stimulation of a trip with a fellow adventurer,
The quietude of a peaceful walk in the forest,
The openness of a scientist with her experiment,
The compassion of a nurse with a patient in pain,
The easy reassurance of a coach to a boy who missed a ball,
The physical closeness of a baby at the breast,
The sigh of fullness at completing a poignant story,
The clapping hands and jumping feet of a child invited overnight,
The shy smile the first day of school with a new friend,
The hope, blessed, eternal hope,
That this man's shock absorbers
Can keep smooth any ride we take.

I'm ready! Are you?

That shouldn't have taken more than an hour for ... Read more

Stop Looking; Start Asking. You Can Have It!

By

Have you ever wondered if there was an easier way to have what was important to you? What if all you needed to do to find a partner or a job or anything that mattered was a clear awareness of who you are and who you want to be? No promises from me or anybody, but the concept makes a lot of sense to me. I've been reading several ... Read more

How Can You Celebrate Today?

By

As you read of my love of pleasure, do think of and note all the ways you can add delight in your life! I had my 59th birthday party on a Sunday several years ago. It was sheer delight. I had thoroughly enjoyed the show of Bubble Man at Seattle Center on Kid's Day and arranged to have him for my party. For an hour, six kids and about 20 adults sat on my ... Read more
