Ask Two...

It's been a pretty good while since I did this. Some things may have changed since then.

So, ask me two questions within reason, and I'll try to answer. The last time I did this, this was the response. It may help you in asking the questions. It was last July, I think...I'll take a chance....3 questions

Unlistedone..I went back and read the 3 questions, and now that you have me in tears, I will ask you my two.

1. If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

2. Is there one person from your past you wish you could reconnect with and why?

And if you make me cry with your answers....well, I'm gonna have to hug you real hard!

I'm starting in the middle to answer questions.

Tiller, since you say you are closing down soon. First off, I'll miss you. You have become a friend, and friends miss friends. This is one rolecall I wished you had missed Lt. But, wherever you go or whatever you do, know you have touched a lot of people's hearts here... mine included. luv ya, girl!

1. Is there anything that you have wanted to do in this life that you haven't accomplished? That you feel you MUSTt do before you die?

Yes, several. I want to finish my writing. I still feel like there might be something left unsaid in a few poems. And the novel. If I can just get beyond a little writer's block, I think I can finish it pretty quick.

I would love to see my career reach it's absolute best. But for that to happen, my health has to get back to it's best. A lot of "ifs" there, I'm afraid.

Then there are a few personal things I still would like to do. I want to meet some of my friends here face to face. And I also want to see all of them happy. God, I would really like that. To come to blogland one day, and see all my friends cheerful and without any worries. That would be great!!!

2. What is your favorite Season?
3. If you had the chance to go to the Moon, would you?

Spring... with an astrik. I enjoy watching the renewal of life. And feel the warmth of the Spring breeze on my face. By the same token, I absolutely love Summer! Fall would be third, and winter last. I just don't handle the cold very well. Give me 75 degrees and sunshine!

The moon? Damn skippy I would!!! Faster than a heartbeat. The view would have to be spectacular!!!! Thanks Tiller, I hope you come back... soon!

mangomamiCT, Thanks for the questions and welcome to my home. You are welcome here anytime.

1.How do you express your love , touch , words , actions?

The expression of love for me comes in many ways. I hope my poetry brings it across. Sometimes you write one thing, and the reader reads it entirely different than was intended. That's one of the reasons I try and use words that may "paint a picture" for my reader to see in their mind.
In touching, A show of love or a bond between friends, may be a touch to their shoulder, a pat on the back. Always a hug. (You'll find I do a lot of hugging here!)
Action, like touching, I'm assuming you are referring to lovemaking... my touching is soft, easy, gentle, and always lightly moving. Not just the hand in a set pattern. But with fingers spread, and rotating in different directions while the hand is moving up, around, and everywhere. Both hands, all fingers. So instead of my lover feeling just my hands and palms, they feel ten fingers softly circling everywhere at once. This was a technigue I learned a long time ago. It keeps my partner never knowing where I'm going to touch her next. It makes all the nerve endings come alive.
Also, like a good masseuse, I'll never take my hands completely off of my partner at the same time. There will always be contact.

Another way of expressing love, and this one I have only used a few times. (And the fewer times the better.) That form of love is loving someone enough to let them go. It isn't easy to love someone who is no longer happy or is searching for something that they don't think they can find with you. I hate the lonely feeling this brings with this; but it is a very true form of love, believe me.

2.What is the one thing you could not live without?

This one is easy for me. Family and Friends. My family always comes first. And my friends are like my family!

Mzhuny!!!! Lady, you always put a smile on my face, my dear friend. I know you don't use it, and are very careful about throwing it out there... but "I love you." Just wanted you to know.

1.Are ya a slow hand man?

Yes ma'am. Until you say "faster." And then I'll give it some thought!!! I think the answer to mangomamiCT pretty well answered this one. There is more to it... but that gives you an idea on how important I consider the hands in lovemaking. And the rest of me follows the same principles as the hands.

2.When are ya cumming to Kentucky?

I wish that were a real request and that I was free to do so... cause I sure would, faster than you can get dinner ready!!!

Hun, like a big brother, a friend, or whatever you want to call me. Call me, if you need me... I'll always be there for you. hug, darlin', unlisted

Fly, I think your right. We all do seem to see each other here a lot. I really like it too. I miss it when I don't get to see that the two of you stop by. You both have become very close to me. I thank you and Angel from the bottom of my heart for that. You called me "Pal" a couple of times. And that reminded me of the way "pal" was used in the movie "Young Guns." Very serious word, "Pals."

Your question, and the answer. This one, believe me, I've given a lot of thought, and prayer to. And still I'm not totally sure it will answer it the way you want it.

"What advice would you give to some who had a chance to start over?"

I'll start my answer with a poem:

Post Script

There are many memories
when I remember all the loves
of my life.
Some were so long in the past
it's hard to even recall faces or names.
That's sad.
Others came as little as five minutes ago.

Through all the miles I've crossed,
I've learned many valuable lessons
about life.
Some were given with smiles
and the laughter was easy.
Others, the hard ones
were learned through pain,
and saddness.

You can't really know
the bright side of life
without first
what it's like
to be alone and sad.

Don't be afraid to love.
The pain can hurt
like no other hurt
ever felt...
but the good feelings- - -.

I've taken those journeys step by step;
and would take them again
without hesitation.
For those journeys are life...
and in life are
the memories of love.

Copyright under unlistedone's real name.

This poem was originally the last poem I wrote for the second version/writing of a book of poems. In it, I really wanted the reader to know to never ever, turn away from love, and never ever be afraid to love again.

I think that's important. We are all filled with an endless capacity to love. And just because one love ends with one person, doesn't mean there won't be another. For if you let it happen, it will. The person who says I've loved before and I'll never love again, misses out on something spectacular... and so very fullfilling. Please, don't ever give up on love, Fly. You have so very much to give. (Just "spreadin' some back at ya.)

Sometimes you have to take things slow and easy. It may be minute by minute. That's fine. Just know, there are only twenty-four hours in a day, and this too, will pass. There is nothing, nothing, that I've ever found won't pass by with time.

Time can be your best friend, if you let him. He is always there. He never goes away. And he is consistant. You can always rely on him.

I hope this helps, sweetheart. Just remember, you are never alone. We are always here for you. love, unlisted

Angel, your questions are two very hard ones to answer. But, I said I would, so I shall.

1. If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

Changing just one thing, changes "everything" beyond that point. So you have to be careful about what you wish for. If one thing got changed, I wouldn't have been blessed with my family. That would be a tremendous loss. And I probably wouldn't be here writing this at this moment in time.

But if it were safe to change one thing without that happening...
I would change the time of my father's death. He died two months before he was fifty. (I'm older than he was when he died.)

He had so much to give to this world. Some have said I'm kind, and at times, wise. I didn't hold a candle to him. His spirit of brotherly love and friendship was way beyond mine. The people that called him friend, "good friend" went into the thousands.

He was a pulbic speaker. He was just as comfortable talking to hundreds, either in a formal banquet hall, or behind a pulpit in a small mountain church. And he always told of love, compassion, friendship, trust, belief, and all the opportunities eash of us have to express each and every one of those qualities. And he meant every word. And he lived every word.

The world that knew him... misses him. And since he wasn't just my father, but my best friend... so do I.

2. Is there one person from your past you wish you could reconnect with and why?

One person... Angel that's hard. There are many. But, if you are asking if there is one person that I loved, then yes, there is.

We called her "Charlie." Cherie, with an accent was her real name. She was the one that wrote "143" to me. And I loved her. God, I loved her. No... let me rephrase that... "I love her... and I always will."

When I first got on the computer, I searched. Everywhere I thought to search. I wrote to people asking if they might be the person I was trying to find. All came back "no." Some tried to help... but she wasn't found. I just wanted to know if she was okay. And that life had been kind to her. I wanted to know that she still laughed... and that those dark eyes still sparkled when she smiled.

I wanted to tell her of the terrible lie I was told that made me stay away and not come back for her. I wanted to tell her... well... just tell her I love her. Always have... always will.

Would I want to reconnect with her? Yes, oh dear God, yes. The thousands of times I've asked for this. But, I know I can't... I won't... but the love will foreever be there.

Charlie, if by some chance someone that knows you, or even you read this, "1-4-3...wamhasfaf."

(Thank you Angel... for letting me write this.)

Polly, these are kinda tough questions here. Yes, you have looked over my shoulder and read me well... just as I knew you would. I could feel your silence at times. And I understood the nuance in your words, also.

(1) What's been the main change for you during the last six months?

I think the main change has been that I've learned a few valuable lessons for myself... about myself. I was going along just merrily and then got myself off track. I thought I had "slipped up" and had found someone. But I pushed it, and I was wrong. I did as promised though, and quietly walked away. It still hurts. I won't lie about it. But for every hurt there has to be a lesson learned. I learned from this one... a lot.

[color purple}(2) Are you still in love?

Yes... to deny it is to say it didn't happen. But I'll live with it. And I'll live with the knowledge that what was done, and said, I've learned from; as I stated above.

You have always been one to call everything on me. I realized very quickly that I couldn't pull anything with you watching. And I appreciate that. Is this the answer you were seeking? hug, my friend, the both of you!

Unlistedone....thank you for answering so honestly. I think I knew the answer to the one question after reading your poem. I hope that wasn't painful for you to answer. If you have known such a great love, experienced it, been blessed to have been a part of it, then that is more than some people ever experience in this lifetime! ~hugs~ Angel.

Fly, your welcome. (He said breathing a sigh of relief.) Anytime you want to ask anything of me, just ask. It doesn't have to be about whatever post I may have put down here... it can be anything... anytime. luv ya, girl, unlisted

Angel, like I said, thank you... for allowing me the opportunity to write this down.

Yes, I do consider myself fortunate to have had this love in my life. And yes, it is a love that I still carry inside even today. I wish for everyone they could experience that type of emotional, intense love. (I'm feel you have.) You can't tell someone about it and do it justice. How do you do justice to a Star exploding... or a comet flying through the sky?

And it shows, also, that there is still love that can be given to another. Yes, you can love more than one. And yes, that love can be just as strong. The capacity for love has no boundaries, and no limits. gentle hug, unlisted
