Jewels in my Crown

honours471eAs with everything in my life, I alter the plans to work best for me in accomplishing the goals to be achieved from the pattern most of the rest of the world follows.  My idiosyncrasies prohibit me from achieving the desired outcome if I try to do things the way others do them; I spent a lot of years learning this about myself…if I do it another’s way, I always fail, without exception…I know how to adapt things for me, and when came to raising three children, I did the same thing.  I made decisions that would achieve the goals I set for them.  When I looked into the lives others who either were raising children, or had raised children I saw two common denominators…those successes and/or the failures in the lives of the children could always be traced back to the decisions of the parents, and those successes parents always take credit for, and the failures they always blame the children.

My children were unfortunate enough to wind up in a dysfunctional family, with parents who continually made bad choices and thought life was one big fucking party.  If I made choices concerning them the way I made choices for myself, they would have grown up making the same type of choices that I made, and from the beginning I didn’t want that for them, and so I sought the tools they would need to have so that I could make sure that by the time they were stepping into adulthood they would be prepared to face those decisions in a way I never considered before;  and not be jaded and scarred with a lifetime of learning life’s lessons the hard way.

What I’m looking for…

There is reason why I have never married again!  It’s been, well, a long time…my wife left in 1999 (which devastated me)…left me to raise three children on my own, and they turned out fantastic!  I have had girlfriends.  I have made a lot of friends of the opposite sex, but I have kept myself from stepping back into

Sometimes what I see in a girl can’t be captured in a photo…

another marriage because I won’t make the same mistakes again.  I’m looking for a foundation on which to build, and for someone who inspires me to become more than who I am…many women intrigue me, even more excite me…it’s the rare find that actually is strong enough to be what I need, and still weak enough to need me.

A Season of Celibacy

A little over a year ago, I made a vow to be celibate, and I have been faithful to that decision.  I’m not convicted in a religious aspect; I honestly don’t believe sex is a sin, in any form between willing partners, for my readers who lean to conservative sides of their particular brand of worship, I respect your views, but I don’t share them.  I’ve decided to continue the practice again through 2014.

Some new blog entries to share…

I have posted at a couple of my new sites and thought I would share them with you.  Today I released my newest site and it is focused on Dreams, the struggles and victories we have in the pursuit of fulfilling our lives with the visions of our deepest desires.

If I begin with a dream, the boundaries to reality are endless.

Those things that make life worth our best effort!

Yesterday, I published a post on my new blog entitled:  Passion, Love, & Romance.   This blog is concerned with the feelings of my obsession and continued persistence in a love that I have shared about on here before but I still keep the names generic and protect the privacy of the intended as best I can given the venue, but I explore what I know about love, learn in the daily process, and share the feelings that can be very intense when I allow them to the surface.  I desired a site that I could use as a specific outlet for these life directing emotions; I hope that I am able to be as open as I can be so that others will be able to learn as much as I tend to learn in the process of writing these posts.

The emotions within the power of desire are but a taste of the true power that Love is ultimately capable of providing.

Thank you for all your support and continued visits to the various sites that I have authored and poured myself into for the purpose of this continued building of a network dream, the social network that eventually will be much more than just a few blogs by yours truly.  I appreciate you all and look forward to your comments.  

Love and Peace,
