Life has all flavors, but bittersweet always makes me cry.
Time is adding more energy, enthusiasm, insight. Watch out, future!

Currently Lapsed Like others here, I have a love/hate relationship with Mensa. I love being able to "be myself" without all the odd social repercussions of being identified this way. On the other hand, a life of being… [more]
Sex Dreams, But Not What I Thought. A couple of times I had this really sweet but dirty dream, just wonderful. I thought it was a friend of mine in it, and smiled to myself when we got together, but we're just platonic friends, always h… [more]
A Bit Overwhelming I lost my idealism about relationships a long time ago. I guess I had to be self-taught about what love was, how to love, and even why I might be worthy of love and lovable. I was born a very loving p… [more]
My Second Home Is On A Side Street Near The Alte Oper I'm from Boston, but if you asked me where my heart is besides there, I'd say Frankfurt, Germany. I've been visiting there for the last 30 years, although recently I haven't been there and I am aching… [more]
I Just Discovered My Creativity and Passion at 50I feel like I'm burning up sometimes. I was raised by two geeky, introverted parents, and ones that even suppressed this side of me in unforgivable ways. Just one side of abuse, I guess. In the last several years I've discovered something beyond skills and talents, and this past week I found the key to unleash it. I'm a little scared!

My first reaction, of course, is "how do I control it?" Haha, that would surely be the way, based on the past. But even better, how do I enjoy and use it? It's like a superpowe… [more]
I gave up on love and didn't know itA lot things in life happen gradually, so they're hard to see. Like most people I took infatuation for love when I was young, and enjoyed being overwhelmed by the feelings. Over time, somehow I became more "practical" about love, relationships, even life.The problem is, though I don't think it's true for all people or even most, I seem to need a lot of love and spiritual happiness in my life. If I'm just marching through life, doing the necessary things, it becomes meaningless, although I can make an effort and see meaning anyway.Over time both what I did for work, and how my love life, such as it was, went were both pretty much without meaning. It was only when I discovered photography, far… [more]
