I Am King Of Swords

. . . I am a man.  I'm very tall. EP Link

I'm a Libra EP Link with a Scorpio moon which means I am a balanced person who is extremely passionate (especially in bed). EP Link

I lost my mother when I was very young and was raised by my father and a caregiver/housekeeper (Maybelle).  EP Link

I love to cook and I learned how to cook from Maybelle.  EP Link

I learned to treat everybody the same.  EP Link

Growing up, I did things that most kids did.  I played outside in the sunshine, played in a tree house, rode my bike, etc.  I got hurt when my bike ran into a parked Packard and blood spewed everywhere.  That little accident earned me a ride in an ambulance, stitches and tons of respect from the kids in the neighborhood.

Because I really missed my mother, I spent a great deal of time by myself, I would go on a lot of walks.  EP Link  It is because of the walks in the forest that I came to really appreciate nature.

At night, I spent a lot of time looking up in the night sky where I would see the stars that represented those that were no longer on Earth but were still looking out for us (like my mom).  EP Link

I love the Earth and studied to become a geologist.  It wasn't like I specifically wanted to become a geologist.  I just assumed that I would follow my father and grandfather's footsteps and become an attorney. I was a very good student and thought that I would study environmental law but I found that I enjoyed being outside more than being inside. EP Link
I really enjoy field work.  EP Link

When I went away to college I found it to be a really nice taste of freedom and I did something stupid which got me in a lot of trouble with my father and grandfather.  I came home one weekend from college and got my butt tore up with my dad's belt.  I wasn't happy about it but I don't regret it either.  EP Link  I never screwed up at school after that.  I graduated and got married.

It didn't work out and I got a divorce.http://www.experienceproject.com/stories/Had-A-Bad-Marriage/2082494 and
EP Link

I worked on myself.

I love to cook.

I had a cat that adopted me.  He was my best buddy after my divorce.  EP Link

I worked on getting my masters and then my doctorate.  EP Link

Being single really sucked and I dated a lot but didn't care to go on endless dates with women that seemed to have some kind of internal emotional issues going on.  I like having a peaceful life and such drama and turmoil bothers me. (I think I inherited the drama based sour stomach from my mother).  I thought I would end up forever single because I didn't want to settle for something that wasn't exactly what I wanted.

I have a tremendous amount of faith and believe in God.  I prayed that he would bless me with a loving wife and after many years, he did.  EP Link

I met the love of my life in a gourmet grocery store. EP Link

I absolutely love her.  EP Link

I am so happy that she said yes, when I proposed. EP Link

I learned to take care of myself and look younger than I am.  It is flattering to be mistaken for someone who is in their late 30s to early 40s when I'm actually in my 50s.

I am grateful that my wife, who is much younger than I am, looks even younger than she is.  It does make me happy to have young guys in their 20s looking at my wife who is in her 40s. EP Link   It makes me even happier to know that she's not interested in them. (LOL).  She's all mine fellas.  EP Link

I am sincerely grateful that God blessed me with a very smart and sexy wife.  I love her more than anything.  EP Link

I am well-endowed.  EP Link

I am grateful that my father raised me the way he did.  He died earlier this year and I miss him. EP Link

Even though my life hasn't always been a cakewalk, I have done well.  I focus on the positive because I choose to.

My screen name King of Swords comes from the Tarot deck.  King is the highest court card in the deck.  Swords means higher thought and communication.  So, King of Swords means master of higher thought and communication.

I am King of Swords.

Very nice yet I would take u more for King of Cups Wisdom wise juddgement and better read, swords can mean strife and a man who can have some hostile qualities trust me I know..<br />
Glad your with someone u love

Each card has at least two sides or meanings. King of Cups can be extremely emotional. That is not me. Swords, higher thought and master of communication and negotiation.

I respect you sir......

Thank you.

That was a very nice story. I loved all of the links to the other stories. You can tell how much you love your wife. It is sweet to see that kind of love.

Thank you.

I like your story. I miss you and can't wait until you come home.

Thank you. I miss you and can't wait to be home with you. (wink)
