As-Is

Take advantage of these little breaks where you are away from your family, friends and work. They will come less often in your life. Learn to breathe in your own soul, know yourself.

Dream alone, think alone, look at the night alone and wake up to the sun alone. Know what it is like to live inside your own skin, where your spirit lives. Know it is fine and so are you.

And when the night gets cold and you curl up with thoughts racing through your head, rest them knowing that I love you, just the way you are;

As-is, like an old red car with lots of dents inside and out, high mileage and all. I miss your no car smell. My little shiny thing.

Thank you again. It makes me feel good to know you enjoy my work, as I enjoy yours. I do agree that you must love and respect yourself first, of course. But sometimes, there is a love so powerful that no matter how you feel about who you are or how much you have left to give, comes in and changes everything, scares the crap out of you, makes you doubt even yourself, while still remaining gentle in every way, and almost illusive. Those are the rarest to find and they do exist. Problem is admitting to yourself it's really true and harder still, convincing the recipient you aren't crazy. lol Good energy back at you.

...well I love your deep, soulful philosophical writing and yes I really do think most writers/poets need their solitude and their 'down time' ..... although someone like me can write anywhere (at work, in my car (with both hands on the wheel -lol - and in my mind, and often on my walks around the bay of the lake here.

In order to love or respect anyone else you must be able to love and respect yourself - and I am a big believer in the theory of moderation in life and of course - yin and yang.

Thank you as always for being a thoughful probing writer yourself and inspiring me as well - sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 1:40pm
