The Love of Men: Ability vs. Opportunity

Very few will understand. There is distinct difference between not being able to Love and not being given an opportunity to demonstrate that I DO Love but cannot show it for reasons beyond my control.

Very few will understand what it’s like to have stifled Love or Love that has to be displayed within set parameters for a greater good. Very few will understand that there are real men among us who look on, from behind a glacier of no emotion, wishing they could have that one chance to Love.

Social issues will never be coined in one-liners. Neither will they be coined in single, powerful statements. This doesn’t stop individuals speaking out against injustice, though, in any way they can.


Rene Magritte: Mysteries of the Horizon

Ultimately, every choice we make is one that can lead us to happiness.

Reality will always be in the mind of the perceiver, just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We assess what we perceive based on our reasoning, which is founded in our memories. Our memories are our life experiences that stay with us. Our experiences can be created with every choice we make.

Being someone driven by Love will cause you to live a loving life. A loving life is a loving legacy that can inspire others. Small steps towards a loving society, really… Just a thought!


The Annunciation

There are very few things worse than having Love torn from you. Regardless of blame and reason, it leaves you in a place where you question the very existence of Love. Much less the ability to display it.

I overcame this period in my life by accepting responsibility for my wrongdoings and how I’d hurt others. Then I went through a process of self-forgiveness before opening a door for others to forgive me.

During the period of asking others to forgive me, I went through a raft of emotions as some forgave and others blasted me with the grudge and hate they still held against me. It wasn’t pretty and the period brought me to a next phase that I am still dealing with. I am fearful of letting down those that I Love.
