Love and other inconveniences.

The frivolous practice of being 'in love' pales in comparison to the art of knowing how to love. Elizabeth Barret Browning worked it all out in her sublime poem:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Yet again Moneypenny, you marvel us with your waxing lyrical. Where have you been all summer?? You have been sorely missed, great to hear your voice.

Love Barry and Trish.

There you go Moneypenny, Liz Browning is one heroine I was able to pass my English Lit final with. How could I possibly count the ways you thrill me? Thank you for the card. You are more thoughtful than all the humans on the planet. When God made you, he threw away the mold. One in a million gorgeous.

ah-hem, guys. This is not a chat forum to publish/vent/pursue your ideas to chat up unassuming fans of mine. Love you all, but keep it down.

Who's in love with you? I know this kind of talk. Take a cold shower for God's sake.

Word,

Hello Moneypenny,

I'm curious, where can I buy a good looking Betta fish? I live in Warwickshire, just outside of Stratford. I've googled it, but to no avail. Hope you can help. Great blog.

Thank you,

Sally

A battle of wits?
Fair game
to squits

Tis not fair to
assume
in gloom
my bum hole
can explode
in shits.

I need tits.

Moab man,

I published your stupid comment for reasons that which you don't know about until you wake up and smack yourself in the head and say "Damn!"

Queen - Play The Game

We cannot decide who we love but can do our best to do the right thing on this Earth during our time here ...and laugh at our own weaknesses.
We can decide not to be victims and to make something positive out of ALL situations,That is learning good things from life and love and playing the game.
