It begins anew, this journey, the one we call life. This time is somehow different as I begin to look ahead and ponder what it is I seek.
Each day is as they have always been, there is work to nourish the mind and body, there is a home to look after, there are the day to day chores to be done and in it all there needs to be time to relax and regenerate and start once again.
We are a very social animal and as such we have the need to interact with others of our kind. The levels of interaction are complex, and as diverse as is each individual. What may satisfy one may not another. Conversation may be the beginning to romance if those involved find the mental stimulation arousing, others may find closeness through exersize, physical workouts raise the endorfin levels which raises the pleasure levels in the body.
I could go on with such examples ad nauseum, in trying to explain how we come together with others and find mates and partners. This is the eventual goal of us all, to be with someone who stimulate us in many different ways, who fulfills that part of us we feel is missing.
I have been most fortunate in this life to have been with the one who completed me. This I do not expect to happen twice in my life. What I seek on this new journey is the companionship of someone secure enough to be what part of each other we need to be, yet independant enough to be able to except that other part of my life.
This is not a short journey, this I know, after my first divorce I spent 10 years looking for the one person to fulfill the empty parts of my life, to make a whole out of the fragments. This journey may take as long but that is what I knew when first I decided that this journey must be made.
And so let it begin, the quest, this search for what we all hope to find. The one thing that comes of such a quest is the people met along the way, already there are some with whom I hope to have at my side throughout this part of my life and others yet to meet.
Y'all have a nice day
