to her, drinking responsibly meant not spilling it

~

what happens to history if booze had never been invented?

~

‘she is my most precious possession…..’ he said

then she threw her drink in his face

~

‘I drink to forget…..’ she said

‘forget what…..?’

‘fucked if I can remember…..’

even those who don’t drink anymore

feel like taking a drink to get though lockdown

brief encounter

never do sober what you said you’d do when you were drunk

~

They met in a bar.  The kind of place where the amoral nature of women slowly becomes apparent.  She thought he was cute, he thought she was going to be easy.

They had incredible sex in the desert.  That was when he first realised she was an amazingly lascivious lay.

Love and Fear

of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears

Many relationships are characterised by a lack of complete trust and a fear of really deep intimacy.  These relationships operate at a superficial level with neither partner fully accepting, believing, or understanding the other.  It could be that the couple have only been dating for a short while, or it could be that they have been married for years.  Every and any degree and type of couple and relationship can exist with one or both partners fearing complete intimacy.  Or if it’s a wider relationship several people may be feared and several may fear complete intimacy.

There seemed to be endless obstacles preventing me from living with my eyes open, but as I gradually followed up clue after clue it seemed that the root cause of them all was fear.  ~  Joanna Field.

It could be that one or more in a relationship has secrets about the past that they don’t ever want to share ~ in which case that fear of intimacy and vulnerability will most likely stay with them forever.  They will never share their true self with another person, least of all their partner.  This is actually a fear of themselves.

In some relationships there is also genuine and real fear of one partner for another.  This could be caused by;

  • Verbal Abuse, up to and including being screamed and sworn at.
  • Physical Abuse, up to and including beatings and murder.
  • Sexual Abuse, up to and including rape.
  • Neglect, both physical and emotional.
  • Mental or physical illnesses.
  • Substance abuse, do not expect an alcoholic or drug user to ever behave rationally.
  • Theft, miserliness, impulsive spending, cheating, promiscuity.

Those who fear intimacy, or fear their partner, will often look for ways of interacting safely with other people.  This can lead to serial adultery, joining weird groups and cults, hanging out in bars, casual sex, and looking for much older / younger sexual partners.

A characteristic of fear in a relationship is that there will be great difficulty in talking openly, of expressing wants, needs and desires, of being accepting and understanding.  This feeds into a vicious circle of unfulfilled needs as well as less and less trust.  In that kind of dysfunctional relationship there will be little communication, lots of accusations, and hardly any physical contact.  There will also be a complete unwillingness to accept any degree of uncertainty whatsoever.

I’ve been in a dysfunctional and toxic relationship, and it killed my mind and soul long before I got out ~ and getting out to start anew is probably the only cure.

Some say they are cautious of people whose deeds don’t match their words.  And that they are constantly upset, hurt, and wanting to break down and cry.  All I know is relationships are supposed to make us happy, smile, laugh, and build good memories of great times.

The Games People Play

it’s not just casual sex, it’s fully exploring her sexuality

~

The bar wasn’t crowded.  Younger guys playing pool, watching sports, drinking beer, looking at the older woman sitting alone.  Sexy dress, no bra, black stockings, much makeup.  One young guy caught her eye; ‘Do you wanna fuck?’ he mouthed.  ‘Yes….’ she mouthed back.  It was their first and last time.

So, I Might Die Soon

to the enlightened mind death is but the next great adventure

There is much worry and anxiety surrounding the medical emergency that has the coronavirus at the root cause of it all.  My opinion is that there is more worry and anxiety than this nasty little bug deserves.  Thus far in the UK about 27,500 people have been tested, at the last count 460 people tested positive, of whom an unfortunate 8 have died.

To put this in perspective the population of the United Kingdom is about 66,870,000 souls, and as a percentage of that 460 is so nearly nothing as to make no difference.  Italy, which seems to be the worst affected European country has a population of 60,480,000 , of which 12,000 have tested positive for the virus and 827 have died, (at the last count).  Again this is a minuscule portion of the total population.

Statistically, and by all the laws of probability, the chances of my dying from the coronavirus would appear to be somewhere between slim and none at all.  Particulary if the various governments and health authorities pull their collective fingers out and do something effective about containing / controlling / curing this illness.  In any event, by all the laws of chance I should be dead already.

Men die for these main reasons;

  1. Heart Diseases
  2. Cancer
  3. Accidents and Unintentional Injuries
  4. Stroke
  5. Lung Diseases
  6. Diabetes
  7. Influenza and Pneumonia, (and add the coronavirus in here)
  8. Suicide
  9. Kidney and Liver Diseases
  10. Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of Dementia

The story isn’t as simple as that.  Many of these deaths are more or less self inflicted.  Men do lots of bad and stupid things which will lead to an early death.  For example; boozing, drug abuse, eating an unhealthy diet, being filthy dirty and unclean, gambling, obesity, smoking, unsafe sex, and leading a life of crime and violence.  It may well say on the death certificate that some guy died of liver failure, but it probably will not say that said liver failure was brought on by drinking a pint or so of vodka a day, every single day.

I have good reasons to want to live longer and be fitter later in life, accordingly I don’t do any of the bad and stupid things in the list above; (although I have been known to drink far, far too much booze on occasion, I am now utterly sober).

Similarly, your chances of not catching, or catching and surviving the coronavirus will be much better if you don’t do any of the bad and stupid things from the list above.  To survive an illness, first be fit and healthy.  I have always been reasonably fit and I survived double pneumonia, pleurisy, and breaking 5 of my ribs along the way.

Some say that we could all stay at home and not see another soul until the coronavirus scare blows over.  And that only one in 5 people who catch this thing will need medical care.  All I know is that even if I catch this thing the chances are I will only get a mild illness.

the Tarot Death Card doesn’t really mean what a lot of people think it means

 

Ethics, Manners, and Morals

love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies

Everybody lies.  Everybody lies all the time.  Everybody lies to oil the wheels of business, friendship, politics, relationships, and society in general.  If everyone told the brutal truth all the time then this world would be filled with aggression, discord, mistrust, and violence ~ and that’s just about the state of the world anyway.  In most relationships, if both partners were absolutely truthful all of the time, then most relationships would last for about a New York second.

Most lies in most relationships are lies of omission, it’s sometimes impolite to tell our partner the complete truth.  Many would not say that their partner’s brother disgusts them, or that they go to the bar on the way home from work because coming home is the last thing they want to do at the end of a busy day.  Hardly anyone would say that they had sex with someone they picked up in that bar, and they don’t even know his / her name.  The first of those lies of omission is perhaps acceptable, for a while.  The last of those lies is immoral and unethical.

Sometimes lies are created by we what we believe are good manners.  We might say that our wife / husband looks nice, when in fact they look like a slut / skank / bum.  If you think about it that kind of a lie is actually very cruel.  Another unthinking lie is when we tell someone that we love them, and in reality we don’t much care for them at all, we only talk about love to get what we want from them ~ usually either money or sex.

Lies are perhaps the least of the unethical, ill-mannered, and immoral things that people do.  Begin with things such as alcoholism, casual sex, drug abuse, gambling, gaslighting, promiscuity, road-rage, stalking, stealing…..  All of those hurt someone, not least the person doing those immoral and unethical things.  You may think that being an alcoholic or a drug user, or promiscuous, or whatever is an illness and the unfortunate is not to blame.  Let me tell you that this is untrue, no matter what alcoholics anonymous, narcotics anonymous, or whatever anonymous may say.

And I know, because I have been there.  Everyone has an ethical and moral duty to be the best version of themselves they can possibly be, and if you drink, take drugs, fuck around you are debasing yourself and need to find help and treatment.  Nobody is ever going to think you are smart or clever for doing those things.  And afterwards, you will lie about it for the rest of your miserable dishonest life.

If you want to be a better person, then the place to begin is with good manners.  Respect yourself, respect others, and respect the world around you.  And, if you don’t know what having good manners really means, then maybe it’s time to learn.

Some say that they wouldn’t trust their partner out of their sight for a second.  And that they are sick of being ignored / talked over / abused.  All I know is that if I can turn my life around, anyone can.

picking up young guys for sex is pushing morality a bit

Dog Eat Dog

it’s a dog eat dog world, and she’s just a kitten

The world can be a dog eat dog, the devil take the hindmost kind of a place.  The world I lived in for most of my career was like that ~ the top dogs in International Finance take few prisoners and think little of the people they step on to get to where they want to be.  So much of life is like that these days.  There is little honour and less trust among cheats, liars, and thieves.

We cannot even say that the dogs and rats, those who lie, cheat, and steal have some kind of character defect or mental illness ~ not unless you say that all politicians, bankers, businessmen, lawyers, millionaires, and billionaires have some kind of mental illness or character defect.  The top dogs in this world knowingly set out to do anything and everything it takes to get what they want.  And what the leaders of the pack want is money, power, influence, adulation, women, sex, and disciples ~ they want instant gratification.

Along they way this kind of man will do some despicable things in the name of competition and success ~ Judas and Brutus were not the first nor the last men to turn betrayal to a fine art.  Usurping and betraying your king is an almost sure-fire way to success ~ although that kind of sweet success often turns to bitter ashes.

When you strike at a king, you must kill him.  ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson.

There’s the rub, when you betray someone, when you cheat, lie, and steal you must succeed at the first attempt, or else beware of the consequences.  There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded beast.  And in our day to day lives there is nothing more dangerous than a wronged wife / husband / partner / friend…..  Revenge may well be a dish that’s best served cold but if he’s a dog or she’s a bitch then their revenge may well be violent and instant, taken in the heat of the moment.

Weak people seek revenge.  Strong people forgive.  Intelligent people ignore.  ~  Einstein

The real top dogs in this world only ever seek revenge if it will give them some advantage other than destroying whomsoever betrayed them.  But a romantic / sexual partner who believes that they have been wronged will almost always try to destroy their ex.  If you don’t think that’s true then just ask anyone who has ever been stalked for weeks / months / years.

If you want to be a top dog, if you want the women, money, power, adulation, and instant gratification then all you need is to be adaptable, intelligent, educated, skilled, well-read, immoral, and unethical ~ depraved, evil, and wicked helps too.  But WTF, I managed it without resorting to most of the negative stuff, but that almost killed me.  A top dog is always a killer ~ metaphorically at least.

Some say dog eat dog, rat eat rat, and that the crocodiles always come out on top.  All I know is that success does not always come to him who waits.

True Love Isn’t A Deal

a calm sea never made a skilful sailor

if you survive a toxic relationship you will be stronger for it

Most relationships are deals, they arise out necessity, they arise out of wants, needs, and desires.  In these relationships, be they business related, friendships, sexual, or romantic, each person has needs, demands, requests, and expectations.  They want what they want and they want to give just enough in return to keep the relationship alive ~ if not always healthy.  These relationships are usually one-sided with one person giving much more than they receive in return.  They are about what you can get, and not at all about what you can give.  Some call these transactional relationships ~ and that’s buying and selling.

Most self-help and self-development books, podcasts, and seminars are all about how to win in a one-sided transactional relationship.

In a relationship, no amount of extra effort on your part can make up for the lack of effort on theirs.  ~  John Mark Green.

No wonder so many ‘romantic’ relationships and marriages end on the rocks.

In the average transactional relationship there are conditions around everything ~ it’s all an ‘I’ll do this if you do that…..’  And the weight of each thing that each party brings to the relationship is carefully weighed and measured.

The very sad thing is that many people don’t know any better, because they themselves are the result of this kind of dysfunctional deal making relationship.  The chances are that their parents did exactly the same kind of things that they are doing now.

Each of us has a set of hard-wired programs in our subconscious mind, and these programs dictate how we think, feel, react, and act in any given situation.  Mostly these programs are created within us before we are seven years of age, and guess who inculcates most of this stuff into our innocent subconsciousness ~ our parents.

People who come from dysfunctional families are destined for a dysfunctional life.  ~  Bo Bennet.

The tendency towards living in a dysfunctional / transactional / toxic relationship is a family illness, in the same way that a tendency towards alcoholism, drug abuse, gambling, promiscuity, and violence are family illnesses.  And you know what?  All of the above go together and can be often be found in one or both parties in most toxic relationships.

The other side of the coin to a dysfunctional / transactional / toxic relationship can only come about through both parties giving unconditional affection, acceptance, friendship, support, respect, understanding and love to themselves and each other.  And, my friends, that is very rare indeed.  Some call this a transformational relationship, and if you are lucky enough to be in that kind of situation then you have indeed found your soul-mate.

Some say that they wouldn’t trust their lying partner out of their sight for an instant.  And that their husband / wife is a controlling asshole.  All I know is that a healthy relationship is based on unconditional trust.

happiness comes in waves

simply a sorceress

alcohol and a highly sexual woman is a dangerous mix

~

these are the reasons she drinks

these are the reasons she smokes

she’s says she doesn’t do drugs

but I know that she really does

this is the reason she gambles

and is always up on her luck

these are the reasons she fucks

so many young men and boys

treats them like so many toys

I’ve dated many young witches
