INTIMATE DISCLOSURE #7

When you live and thrive in a POLY lifestyle it means having several spouses but

only one is 'on paper'. Marriages are minus all the meaningless nonsense of

documents. The only 'wedding' that matters is the one that happens in the heart

head, spirit, soul and a true exchange of vows you actually mean and mean to keep.

The wedding ceremony is a new idea. Originally you were married when you

"went into" her 'tent' or wherever she was when you entered...not her...but

the chamber where you had sex. The sex itself was the marital event.

As most experts agree MAN has existed for 300,00 years and the first indication

of any ceremony -- let alone the legal element of it -- is 2350 B.C and spread

slowly and was not even the common practice throughout civilization until

the onset of the Catholic church in 300 A.D. In other words... we invented it!

All the thousands of years prior people had spouses, but not weddings.

Not civic/legal events. I had my 'ceremony' with D. in the Taiwan Yushan

National park with several people in 'attendance', we 'consummated' in

a cabana we had set up ahead of time and slept under the stars.

Of course, we'd already had plenty of sex by then! But I've posted

19 photos from the event in the VIP.  Most marriages that start with a ceremony

and a legal document end. Mine was a perfect, perfect thing!

THE YELLOW SUNNY VERSION!
WILDHORSES.png

I've saddled horses all over the

world, including those I own,

and they never pale in fascination

-- as they have done since we first

laid eyes on them! I've already

spoken numerous times about

HIDALGO & PHAR LAP but

there's no doubt that movies like

THE BLACK STALLION dazzle and

amaze everyone who first lays on

it. But if WILD HORSES can't

keep us away from the ones we

love maybe THE CRUSH (1993)

will reassess love/obsession and

CROSSING DELANCEY which

might help reassess our first

prejudices. Man's centuries-long

love-affair with horse-racing is

really a return to a time before

the animals feared us...which

most religious mythology claims

was the case. Now...I wanna

saddle-you-up...yeeehaaahhh!

IT'S ACTUALLY ABOUT HIS DOG

It's a simple truism of life.

Pay close attention.

Are you listening closely...?

YOU...DON'T...KILL..A MAN'S

DOG!! Lemme repeat that.

YOU DONT KILL A MAN'S DOG!

This is now something I under-

stand in a way I did not 9 years

ago before D. insisted that I get

a dog despite my misgivings.

Within the month I was so

emotionally connected with

PEPPER that when I watched

JOHN WICK...I TOTALLY GOT

IT! I got it in a way that usually

only MEN understand. Where-

ever it happened, it happened...

Man's best friend has survived

thousands of years and world

tragedies, wars, disease.

You don't kill a man's dog!

The end of winter still seems far

You and I aren't that distant and

 far, far less cold, and the big sky

and big world is still full of wonder

and new possibilities. Try the

CRUISE/KIDMAN "FAR & AWAY".

It captures the adventuring spirit of

the early pioneers anxious to blaze

a trail to a new home. Let's you and

I find some new adventures!

INTIMATE DISCLOSURE #6

Now's the perfect moment to share my personal definition of LOVE.

I embraced this approach the first time D. shared it with me and I've not only lived

by it in every area of my life, it's what gets me out of bed in the morning, into

bed with you sweeties and, without it, no amount of money could convince me to

do what I do when I've got more than enough money.

"The greatest gift or kindness you can give another is giving them someone to love."

He believed (or rather learned from an amazing, bizarre life and from whom he

accepted as God guiding him in the deepest core of his soul) that being loved

teaches little or nothing...it was when we have someone to love, we could

learn to diminish ourselves to serve another and, in that serving, we are

continually compelled to be and become the best -- most impressive -- version

of ourselves. Loving another calls us to deny everything ugly in ourselves and

strive for everything the one we love needs...wants...deserves.

In the end, LOVE is a metamorphosis of our ugly duckling into a beautiful Swan.

From a cocoon to a glorious butterfly! When I'm with you...this is my goal  --

be the tenderness you're not getting, the lust you're not finding,

the sincerity others you love don't return, the delight, laughter and

affinity most search for all their lives and rarely if ever find. For an hour...

I fall in love with you. And I love it! I get more from it than you do likely...

because I have to shed my SELF, learn, grow, challenge myself..transform!

I am a better ME when you leave. Love is giving and sacrifice. The end.

GETSMART.png
WHOLE LOTTA MAGIC!

Post-modern rationalism begat our

intellectualism and suddenly IQ be-

came a standard measure of one's

superiority in society's pecking

order. Girls love smart men! But most

smart men are vain and condescen-

ding, and most brainless men are

vain about their bodies, shallow &

often without much soul or moral

compass. Smart men find little

thrill in blowing bubbles, dancing

like an Egyptian, or just good 'ol

goofing off. Brainless men can't

get beyond their muscles or

monster-truck rallies. I dropped out

of pre-med, my average scrabble

is twice most people's best game.

But I'm a silly-billy being willy-

nilly with her giggles and wiggles

and I love to roll down hills, spin

until I fall down, and who doesn't

like a round of Rock Em-Sock Em

Robots? GET SMART is a precious

TV show and the HATHAWAY flick

is always fun to watch. God, it's

so fun turning off the brain and

relishing idiocy! But of course we

have to mention the movie I've

watched some 200+ times --

REAL GENIUS. Hilarious, stupid

and smart simultaneously!

serious side of learning, most

people stop progressing in

their curiosity. I'm still learning

AMESLAN and deciphering my

enormous source of gathering

new knowledge: more than this

it alters the windows and doors

of the mind...so that other things

that have nothing to do with

travel or even data, become

easier to learn.  PYGMALION may

Sunday mornings are always fun

So SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK and

In the spirit of that check out

LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN.

Two great LOVE STORIES!

Time to do some painting

which is a joy and a comfort

and not at all "WORK"!

INTIMATE DISCLOSURE #5

I haven't yet really even grazed the surface of music (and music videos) that are sacred

to me. So, for those of you who keep asking, only to frequently have the inquiry

dodged...here ya go. PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE may be schlock and camp

(or even worse not camp...EGAD!) but D. turned me on to the freaky B-Movie

and the FABULOUS music wirtten by PAUL WILLIAMS and I'm still cranking it loud

and loving every delicious note/lyric. "THE HELL OF IT" below in the HELL post

is one of those songs. As music videos go, it's hard to beat DARLING PRETTY by

MARK KNOPFLER...I've spent my entire adult life pursuing the inner beauty and

character that warranted the woman in this video being ME. I have no idea if I

have succeeded, or ever will, but this video is more sacred to me than I can express.

"IT'S RAINING AGAIN" by Supertramp is next on that list...both are tear-rendering

salutes to some of the best LOVE STORIES you can find. But for individual songs

(not including D.'s music and the music I've helped produce and sing on myself)

nothing brings me to broken, sobbing heart-welling gratitude for LOVE itself than

Brandi Carlisle's "I BELONG TO YOU". I feel pity for those who've never felt so

insanely in love with another that they cannot breathe without them.

This song is quite literally the anthem of my entire world with the man I was

so LUCKY to know, learn from...share air with. That was very very...sacred info!

Now you know what's with all the UMBRELLA pics of me!

It's difficult to determine which is the

Either way, Mia plays the second of

overtones and implications. It's Sun-

"It's been 20 months since I last saw Amy at the

airport where she made me regret not booking more

time because it zipped by so fast and she was not only

that 'Amyazing' everyone refers to her as, but also

incredibly charming, smart, funny and has great taste

in all things before her time. So this morning I arrived

at her oasis for the first time and I cleverly booked 3 hrs

so that, in addition to the ideal TLC, we watched

"BLONDIE PLAYS CUPID" from 1940 in the spirit of all

things loveydovey and Valentine. She showed me

her Baseball/ hockey cards and, in her very ladylike way,

giggled her way through a game or two which I did

during recess at age 8-10, but somehow lost the knack.

She clobbered me! Can't wait to do it again"

What's Saturday morning without my

legendary LOVES there can be no

BORIS & NATASHA, YOGI &

BOOBOO, SCOOBY & SHAGGY

WILE E. COYOTE & Road Runner,

SPIKE & Kitty, BUGS & ELMER

are notable mentions. But it

How about TOUCAN SAM &

his Loopies, Sonny & his Cocoa

I mean THAT was LOVE!

With all this in mind, can you guess

which timeless LOVE is number one?

unwitting forefathers of our fallen

INTIMATE DISCLOSURE #4

I’ve shared this before but it’s timely now, what with the two BEAR posts of Thursday.

There’s a larger design than breaching the bunny metaphor it’s seeming to offend.

When my dearly-departed was a teenager he dated a girl with whom he developed

a ‘schtik’ of sorts. She admired his superior brain and he was drawn to her small stature and

cuteness and, being a big YOGI BEAR fan, she’d call him YOGI and he’d call her BOOBOO.

When people inquired they’d explain and people were enchanted. He spread this to DETROIT

where relatives lived and with whom he often stayed for months at a time (because of his

horrifying home/family circumstance).  It caught on, first there and eventually elsewhere,

especially among the blacks he spent much of his social time with. They started referring to

their GFs as their 'boo boo’. True story...I was married to the man that started that

40 years ago! I was proud to be BOOBOO to his (much, much much} smarter-than-the-average bear.

I was also given the name ROO so that I was ROO to his KANGA and that eventually

evolved into ROUX which is a cajun term/food and JOHNNY DEPP’s character in CHOCOLAT.

All my friends have called me  ROUX for many years. FYI (for those who aren’t aware) almost

every ASIAN culture has both an English name and a name from their ethnic language.

Amy is my given English name but if I’d been born in INDIA (and certainly when I visited there)

I had an INDIAN name...I bet you’re dying to know what it is!

too has a HAPPY ENDING (it's a pun

if you've seen the flick). Seriously...

It's FRIDAY and, with the overnight

INTIMATE DISCLOSURE #3

My first boyfriend was a white guy and I was 18. No one ever looked in my general

direction in those days because I was a straight-A student which was synonymous

with DORK, LOSER, PRUDE. Little did they know I was on my back most days

with my BF pumping my mouth because my family's principles re: sex were

very religious; and they worked hard to keep me imprisoned from the world because

I was not only an only child but the GOLDEN CHILD after 3 miscarriages.

By the time I lost my virginity a year later, I didn't know what a BIG MAC was

or how to swim, ride a bike or even know how to get a taxi.

In the next few months I had met Britney, Melissa, Jamie and was halfway

around the world, discovering LIFE, LUST, LOVE...possibilities.

aren't they? Let's stop time for an

hour or two and bridge the only

distance that matters.

INTIMATE DISCLOSURE #2

My first kiss was with my cousin Anuja (a girl). I still am not sure why some women

don't enjoy kissing another girl and why some don't enjoy kissing men. A kiss is

awesome whomever you are kissing! I was nine years old at the time and we were

mimicking an old movie on t.v., practicing maybe, I'm not really sure. My memory is

vague at best. I didn't lose my virginity until I was 19 and that was a 3 some with

a Hawaiian girl just younger than me and the man I would eventually marry.

I can't imagine not kissing someone I'm with and don't understand those who don't.

People press their lips together -- not sure who invented it, but if it isn't the author

of the universe...they deserve many many many many awards!

As stated last Feb and every month since

grateful. Those of you who took no

interest in it will now be at a disadvan-

tage as the next 12 months every con-

test will have at its core, trivia about

said music. Starting today.

SOLITUDE STANDING

Geese are one of the few animals to mate

for life. Monogamy is silly but they still

mourn their loss of mate, honking mourn-

fully, separating themselves in solitude.

Keep in mind this monogamy is asexual

and it's once a year! Humans need much

much more tenderness and TLC.

There's nothing more wrong and evil in

my view than someone who is alone

not by choice but by caprice.

It's unnatural and horrible!

I am fortunate enough to have other

significant others upon whom to lean

and who actually share my loss and

love instead of just affording sympathy.

TWOsDay is a weekly reminder to us

that one's a funeral, two's company,

3 or more is a party -- and a safety

net when we lose someone.

Be it Bride Of Frankenstein, The Mon-

key's Paw, Embryo, Godsend or CREATOR

(my selection) we are able to mourn loss

so deeply we'd rather raise the dead

than lose those we love.

The universe is eating itself, at odds

Everyone has different ideas about what is and

isn't love, what qualifies and what defines it.

Sacred texts from every faith have theirs,

different cultures and eras are all easily

defined by their notions of LOVE,which is -- in

its crudest reality -- not very different from

eating large quantities of chocolate.

But LOVE is both elation and heart-break and

somewhere between those two crazed polarities

the truth may or may not exist. THE LAST

AMERICAN VIRGIN is absolutely heart-

wrenching but a dazzling, stunning example of

how teen/love movies can be brilliant.

Dance, dance, for the figure is easy
The tune is catching and will not stop
Dance till the stars come down from the rafters
Dance, dance, dance till you drop."

"LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED..."

or so says the man with

$200 MILLION

(aka John Lennon)

INTIMATE DISCLOSURE #1

I love classical music and play it for myself (especially Brahms) and occasionally on KFLY. 

When I was 8 years old my father took me to the symphony for the first time. I was

overwhelmed by the grandeur of the hall and the intensity of hearing Brahms LIVE

with an orchestra. I remember him smiling at me and there was a tear in his eye he

clearly did not know was there. This was the first, last and only time I would witness this.

There is beauty in what is fragile.

From the 80s, I read this

long before the movie.

The greatest love story I

ever read! D. turned me

on to it and, as many know,

he was writing his own

novel by the same title

when he passed.
