The long distance kiss.


Repost from 2007

She blew him a kiss
It was shaped like her lips
He caught it with pride
For it had made quite a trip.
Over the cities
And the great sea.
A wondrous voyage
It had turned out to be.
So once it arrived
It was placed with great care
On the forehead belonging
To a most royal heir.
He smiled as he felt it
Rush through his veins.
This kiss that brought with it
The cure for his pains.

A relationship grows on Twitter.

Time for an update: Feb. 20. 2016

Yes these two bicoastal friends found their way to each other. Surprising both they fell in love. They spent 5 glorious, confusing and intense months together. Then came truth. The truth always comes out. We had hope for these lovers but as most things in life all was not revealed feelings got hurt and painful jabs exchanged. The friendship was perhaps the most wounded casualty in their story. She felt decieved he felt…well I’m really not sure. They lost each other and the experiment failed. Trust destroyed, who knows what life has in store? One thing we know,she is gone and he must accept that. Sad ending indeed.

——————–
She:
When you think about it/me what do you imagine? What’s the best case scenario? Be honest please. The more honest the better.

He:
Best case… we fall in love and have kids and live happily ever after. That’s the absolute best.

————————————————————————————-

This very simple text exchange transpired yesterday. It’s pretty darn cute right, romantic even? These two excited people have known each other for close to three years. They met on twitter and there were certain topics that they are both passionate about that brought them into each others twittersphere (gun control) was a big one.

So as it goes they eventually DMd and that went well so they exchanged real life phone numbers. Skype followed after over a year. No they are NOT catfish they skype and send pics all the time.

These two live on opposite coasts. One, a real California guy through and through. The other a hard core east coast chick. Life has now created a circumstance where he is about to move to the east coast. In about 2-4months she and he will finally meet face to face.

They are such great friends and have been extremely patient in lieu of their previous circumstances. Now they are thrilled, nervous, excited, waiting for what lie ahead for them. There are no promises being made or expectations beyond meeting face to face. The friendship is strong enough to survive if the relationship does not end in the happily ever after. I wish these two all the luck in the world because they both deserve it. In terms of a relationship born on social media, these two did it really well and it’s truly authentic.

Nik Wallenda: From Grand Canyon to Chicago


My Latest Obsessions

This evening at 7:00pm on the Discovery channel tight rope walker Nik Wallenda will walk over the city of Chicago. The second half of that walk will be with him blindfolded. Nik did not wear any safety gear for the last televised event. The YouTube video below is the full, live Grand Canyon walk. I watched it live and it was an awe inspiring, terrifying experience. I will be watching tonight though I’m not sure why I watch. I guess it’s BC it’s history being made. Perhaps it’s the seemingly death defying aspect, that anything could happen? Whatever the reason I will be watching and saying a prayer for Nik and his family! Will you be watching?

Ode to Edie: Andy’s Superstar


One from the Archives

Mayflower girl surrounded by sins.
East coast blue blood coursing through her veins.
Santa Barbara born, raised in the bins,
Escaped to New York to ease her pains.

 

Poor little rich girl, embraced by the crowd.
She’s danced like a goddess
And the maker was proud.

Watching as she groped for love and affection.
Welcoming her with his arms open wide.
She couldn’t
Much help it when “It” garnered attention.

He liked all the money and elite cache.
Edie and Andy sounded right, kindred spirits,
With each other to play.

Yet times were quickly changing,
As she was led into the dark.
She looked in the mirror; scarred and ravaged
How did she lose that brilliant spark?

Girl on fire rescued from the flame.
At the Chelsea hotel alone, how far
She had plunged from her fifteen minutes of fame.

Andy created his masterpiece with care.
Then watched as the pieces fell one by one,
Dominoes falling in unison to the sound of despair.

The day she died was just another day.
He pretended and postured, but the truth was in the end
He claimed be barely knew his fragile protégé
.
