May 12, 2014, my 65th birthday, I write:
I start by paraphrasing two expressions of others that shape my thinking:
‘The past is known, set in stone, each new day is a gift, so it’s called the present, the future is at best a guess, without guaranty, so that is why it's called a mystery.'
'Live your life with hopes and aspiration high, be kind, be fair and be balanced, understand and appreciate that even when you have given it your "all", and still you fall..... be strong enough to "get up" and try again.’
My life was affected when I became a widower at 48, married at 21, inseparable for 3 years before, a total of 30 years with 'one' woman. I re-married at 51 thinking my 2nd wife should be different from my first love, but I was wrong. I need a woman who is kind, caring, considerate and above all sharing, not argumentative or combative, in other words a woman who appreciates the word 'we'.
All this is why I do not believe in fate, rather that all things in this life are random and haphazard......and so this day you have stumbled across ‘me’.
I am NOT seeking a carbon copy of 'a love lost'. I desire an original. Be intelligent and independent. Hold and express your true feelings and opinions, finances and politics included.
My preference is that you are younger then me, 5-10 years would be perfect. Please understand that I am attracted only to a woman who is tall, slender, athletic, young at heart, knows what she desires for the rest of her life, and is just a bit naughty.
Be ready to explore and share an exciting life, filled with endless possibilities, together.
So, as the song lyrics go ".....when you look at me across the crowded room, suddenly all I want to do is be alone with you, do you love me, do you love me that much?....."
I know you are out there.....
