a flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and a man cannot live without love ~ Max Muller
Yesterday I committed the cardinal sin for a guy ordering a gift on-line. My gift to a friend of mine arrived on the wrong day!
A bouquet of flowers I ordered from a great florist in California arrived on February 11th, and not on Valentine’s Day. That is so very bad.
It was also completely my fault. In completing the long and complicated on-line order form I neglected to enter the day I wanted the damn flowers delivered ~ so of course they were delivered immediately. Bummer!
If a guy is going to order flowers for Valentine’s Day, then they should arrive on February 14th. Similarly, if a guy is going to order flowers or a gift for a friend’s birthday, then that should arrive on her birthday, and not some random day near her birthday.
Only at Christmas is it permissible for flowers or a gift to arrive early, because nobody actually delivers on Christmas Day.
So, my hugely expensive bouquet for Valentine’s Day is slightly wasted.
Men can be such fools at times.
Some say it’s not the gift that counts, but the thought behind it. And that a kind word is worth more than any mere bouquet of flowers. All I know is that I hope my friend isn’t too disappointed.
a man can’t really go wrong sending flowers to a woman
human behaviour flows from just three main sources; desire, emotion, and knowledge ~ Plato
there is nothing real but dreams and love
and love is like the wind
I may never know from whence it comes
teach me how to find
the true love and desire in you
the mystery of a masque
Only when it’s almost gone will you know what a gift love is.
the world carries on without me
but nothing remains the same
yet I’ll go on without you
until the end of days
dance until the end of love
Shocking moment #3 ~ women like porn.
I was utterly shocked to discover that some women like porn. This is not porn.

Next time I need a cool girl to take on a long bike ride around the island.
Perhaps we meet alien beings every day without realising it.
If you met visitors from outer space what would you want to know? What would you ask them? These are the 10 questions I thought of ~ probably you can think of your own, better questions.
- Why are you here?
- How long have you been visiting the Earth?
- What is your assessment of human kind?
- What’s the deal with all this abduction / experimenting / probing / sex thing?
- Are humans native to the planet Earth, and if not, where did we come from?
- What is a workable solution to the overpopulation of the Earth?
- Where’s the truth in ESP, Spooky Events, Time Travel, Ghosts, Precognition, Astrology, and all the other weird stuff?
- Where is the mistake in Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity?
- What is the ultimate truth of Life, The Universe, and Everything ?
- Is Donald Trump / Hillary Clinton one of yours?
If Star Trek is to be believed then the aliens won’t tell us about Faster Than Light travel, but they may tell us about who really built the pyramids. Or you might ask; ‘Is there a God, and what’s His email address?’
Some say that aliens from other stars are all around us. And that you can’t easily tell an alien being from an ordinary human. All I know is that the truth is out there.

The moon looks down upon us all with her kindly lovelight
Artemis, Cerridwen, Diana, Isis, Luna, Seline,
the brightest full moon should be enough
She keeps me safe in her celestial love
soft and white as some heavenly dove
yet unimaginably distant so far above
ordinary man with pain undreamed of
be comforted because you are loved
the brightest moonrise

Women can drive a man to remember, and to think
all that may make a guy so take just one more drink
and booze does no good, but his love is treacherous
he can do better, and he will always have memories
I never truly told a friend how much I loved her, and I should have.

If you’re always looking back, how can you see the road in front of you.
towns passing by
sharing quiet intimacy
marvelling at the scenery
enjoying long roads’ rhythms
discovering unknown real America
driving through the country no one sees
California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming
witnessing the marvel of a dark sun at noontime
knowing those uplifting moments will be long gone

If you want me, just whistle. You know how to whistle don’t you…..
You are the one
unique and singular
more beautiful to me than
a rainbow in its serried colours
wild, free, and hotter than the sun
romancing you and my life just began
strange, crazy, weird, erotic, feral, and fun
come and ride the river, come ride the moon
