“The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”
It isn’t even that some of us have an uncanny niggling that time is neither our friend nor foe. Or that somewhere, in an untapped part of our soul lies obscure memories imprinted from another lifetime of ancient civilizations like the Amorite dynasties of Babylon, circa 1894 BC; or the Aegean Neolithic farmers of the Bronze Age. Purpose will always outweigh time and your soul will always possess an eternally mysterious past. …

“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.”— Charles Dickens
It was happening again — I was caught in a negative feedback loop, recalling terrible experiences from an extremely difficult marriage. Months, years after my divorce. It was as if my ex-husband still had power over me, continuing to manipulate my feelings of self-worth from afar. …
Cool isn’t just what you say, it’s what you do.
Austin Powers. For some reason, the prolific 1960s spy who was unfrozen and thrust into an array of new assignments in a confusing ’90s world, is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of someone exceptionally cool — “Yeah, baby?”
Okay, so the main selling point of the film series was clearly imbued with the joyous sexism reminiscent of early Bond flicks, but no one can deny that the always-up-for a-good-time, lusting for life and love Austin Powers, was exceptionally cool in his own right.
Love him or hate him, Austin Powers is remarkably unique. …
How to tell when a woman wants you in her bed
I once met a man who made me feel so sexy that I could barely focus on anything other than the thought of getting close to him. He appeared in my life like a Dexter Storm to arouse in me a profound sense of love and endless sexual desire that touched me so deeply, the taste of his essence still lingers in my soul.
I wanted him more than I had ever wanted any other man.
It is a question that has stonewalled the likes of Sigmund Freud to Mel Gibson. It has been the hot topic of countless books and articles, and no doubt caused untold hours of agonized ponderings in both men and women alike. …
“Surrender isn’t about being passive. It’s about being open.”
— Danielle LaPorte
Remember when you used to play that game of tug-of-war as a kid? You willingly chose to place yourself in a situation where two people or factions fought to keep or obtain the same thing. Love can often feel like a game of tug-of-war. It’s that push-pull dynamic between a couple that usually causes more harm than good. …
And we don’t care if you don’t like it.
I’m flattered you’re here. Really. I get it. We seem to have adopted a notion in that wise people are usually quite humdrum, principled and sober with a sense of humor like sour milk.
That’s not you, though, is it?
Some people don’t like that I write about sexuality from time to time, using my body of work and creative expression as some kind strategic attempt to judge, ridicule and mess with my personal life.
I guess it happens to the best of us — or rather, those of us who have the courage to write what we want; freely expressing ourselves through our creativity without concern for the opinions of others. …
What’s the deal with money charms and superstitions, anyway?
“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
- Lao Tzu
When I was a girl, my grandmother gave me a little pink purse with a coin inside because it was ‘bad luck’ to give someone a purse or wallet without doing so. She told me that money will bring more money, and that you shouldn’t gift someone a money bag without a coin because then it was destined to never have money in it.
Like attracts like.
It was my introduction into the superstitious world of wealth and abundance. …
We have all done it at some point. Intentionally or unintentionally offended someone we care about with a spontaneous comment we didn’t really mean, even if we thought we meant it at the time.
Sometimes, it is those simple remarks delivered at just the right moment to provoke a response that are most infuriating. You know, the comments designed to condescend, shut you down, or attempt to show who is in charge of the conversation.
I hate being told to “calm down”.
Mainly because I am quite tranquil by nature and seldom lose control over my emotions, at least, not outwardly. So, when I do have something to say that is important to me, I damn well deserve to own that moment without being patronised, thankyouverymuch. …
Would you call it red?
I’m thinking you would.
Whether positive or negative, passion is such a strong emotion and red is a passionate color.
Passion is the fuel in the fire of action.
Red is the color of blood and fire. The color of scarlet is also associated with meanings of love, desire, heat, longing, lust, sexuality, romance, courage, willpower and rage …. among other things.
There are crimes of passion, hearts of passion, creative passions and passionate love.
Positive passion is an emotion to be acted upon because desire fueled by passion has the power to manifest wonderful results, and let’s get real, a life without passion won’t yield the deep fulfillment we crave. …
How’s that for patriotic?
How could any guy resist the wholesome, all-American-girl-next-door look?
Mary is perky and blond. There is nothing sexier in the world than hearing her laugh. You are not sure how you pull it off, but you’re good at making her laugh. She wears short skirts and tight sweaters that show her dainty nipples poking through the fabric, as if ripe for the pickings. She probably tastes better than pie and that’s saying something because apple pie is your all-time favorite.
You readjust your pants and smile. …
