    Love?

    As the years tick by in my now 12 year marriage. I have never doubted the "power" of love more than now. I feel that the feelings that we get when we are in a new relationship are more akin to infatuation and sexual attraction. It's more of a mating instinct than anything else...

    Fantasy Land!

    I thought I loved a woman once, but now I question all of it! Was it real? Did love actually enter the equation at all? Was I just a fool? Blinded? Feels like it was all a dream, a fantasy. If it was real, wouldn't I have found it somewhere? Now I'm not so sure I believe in...

    Love Is A Many Splendid Thing...(can You See Me Rolling My Eyes???)

    I Love You But...

    Never really understood loving relationships. I thought everybody fought, yelled, screamed and hit. That was what I came up knowing. Then in my mid-twenties something magical (or I thought so at the time) happened. I learned of another side. A side where people got along. There...
