It has been a while, but I have been uninspired for a while now until this past weekend.
If you have not seen Memoirs of a Geisha, but intend to, please stop reading!!!
Anyway, I went with a friend to see Memoirs of a Geisha, and it was absolutely beautiful. This movie has all of the outer markings of a chick flick, but it is actually a very stunning piece of art. Although it is a period piece, it has some strong parallels to the relaionships that men and women have today. Where we value a woman's beauty and physical sexuality sometimes at the expense of her humanity. One of the hardest things in life for me is to move beyond the physical and get to the heart of a woman. I love women, but I know sometimes that I love some of them in the wrong way, but by the time that I have realized it, I have forever stained the relationship. How can you competently explain to a woman that the only reason that you approached her was because of the gentle sway of her bosom when she walks. It is a conversation that never really goes well. Trust me, I have tried. Many times.
There is something chemically within me that drives me towards women, and sometimes (okay a lot of the time) I walk towards them with the impetuous aid of a third leg. I can't help myself. Trust me, I have not tried. Many times.
Then I see this movie, and it puts into perspective what we see everyday. You see a woman sold to the highest bidder commanding a hefty price based on the fact that she is a virgin. There is no regard for her personality, and her sole currency is her physical beauty.
Today I saw a very attractive woman. I glanced at her breasts, I stole a peek at her nails, and I unabashedly stared at her ass as she sauntered away. I gave all of things value and tallied a total. I subconciously do this everyday. Everyday Geisha.

Glad to see ya' back and inspired. And you're right, we do see this everyday.. and as you've told me before.. as shallow as it is, physical appearance/attraction is a very real thing. I've found myself doing the same.. not being able to move past the physical.. not matter how much I like "them", I can't get past the idea of having sex with someone unappealing to me.. I just couldn't do it. Hmph.. oh well.|
