Spring Craziness, Spring Fever and Other Musings
Well, I'm really proud of one friend of mine who's dating this dude, and just takin' it easy-peasy, slow, nice and healthy. I think he's teaching her lessons, inadverntantly, about herself. So it's fun to see. He's not her "the one" but who cares? Why do we Americans put so much stress on that? Just have fun and live in the Eckert Tolle moment.
What else? Talked with an old friend of mine, whom I adore. She's vice pres. and CEO of one of our nation's biggest mobile phone companies, yet, she's as humble a person I've known, and I've known her for almost 30 years. She's what I call a "natural feminist."
A Natural Feminist doesn't have to toot her own horn. She's not into material possessions, comparing herself to the Joneses. She doesn't NEED kids to define herself, and she doesn't disappear into a man either.
She just, well, just IS.
I love how the universe has been moving me along to these great women-friends. And I'm chomping at the bit to read Gloria Steinem's Revolution From Within.
Ironically, there's a wealthy, attractive, Harley-riding, grounded mechanical engineer-investment banker who's interested in me locally. Meh. He's nice, and I told him we can most certainly explore our friendship.
It's funny. When you're entirely 100% independant and comfortable, really good men are attracted to that. Maybe it's the chase? I'm not desperate and love my quiet life. I do not disappear into a man, nor do I need one to feel completed. Or maybe it's the calm from within that they like? Either way, I'm in the moment and have no hurries.
Stay tuned, folks. And simply just love the moment.
