If you press me to tell you why I loved him, I feel that this cannot be expressed except by answering: Because it was he, because it was I.

Flirtin' like Spiders

 

“People love to slowly uncover things about you as they go on more dates,” agreed dating strategist Michelle A. Roberts In fact, this strategy holds true in the wild kingdom as well. According to psychology today

“Caution during courtship is also characteristic of spiders. The male wolf spider, for example, must enter a long, dark entrance of a female’s compound in order to court and copulate. 

 This he does slowly. If he is overeager, she devours him. 

HAHAH!! The female spider devours the man if he is too eager!! Haaa! I loved this bit from an article on flirting. Can't help but froth over psychology. Read the article here.

"Lula Hyers: Ever since I was born, sex ruled the world. There was sexual innuendo in every facet of the mainstream media, and porn was, like it is now, widely accessible and watched by younger and younger people. At the same time, nudity——especially nudity among those same young people——was becoming more and more censored and sexualized. I try to show that not every nude is sexual, and not everything sexual is pornographic."

The Word

Not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so

* SCARY!!!!* Can't help but think this is one big MASSIVE metaphor for the direction our world is moving in with our celly's & more. I was recently at the Miami airport and stopped in ma sneaks when I saw a VIRTUAL lady speaking about the airport or some shiet. It truly looked like a cute little Latino lady -- but it was just an empty HOLOGRAM!!! It was sooo trippy. She was moving & speaking and looked like she had something very important to tell us passerby's! Ta ta, sister. Gotta keep moving. On my feet.

Right now, you think you’re the voice in your head, but that’s only one part of you. In reality, there are two of you. There’s your mind, and there’s your body. And your body is an animal, specifically a female animal. Your body is a she, not an it. She’s a warm-blooded, furry creature and she is directly connected to the wisdom of nature. Your mind is intelligent but your body is also intelligent in different ways. All the time you’ve been thinking your body isn’t worth listening to, but she is.
— Jena La Flamme

I believe poetry is an action, ephemeral or solemn, in which there enter, as equal partners, solitude and solidarity, emotion and action, the nearness to oneself, the nearness to mankind and to the secret manifestations of nature.
— Pablo Neruda, from his 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature acceptance speech
