On shore the land felt liquefied and unfamiliar without the sensual spark swimming along side me. The leaves glistened above my head, like golden gems you’d wear on a necklace. The Santa Fe river sang its song over rocks, branches and brush, while white butterflies and birds fluttered an awakening. I passed cafes, watched couples and families luxuriating in the sunlight, Canyon road art hawkers snapped photos, gallery owners chatted on the courtyards.
The stage of comfort as picturesque as a postcard. I was outside the activity. I rushed home, passing people who walked as if lost, and shoes stuck in tar. Thoughts trotted like ponies all going in different directions. No path had an answer, or a reason, or an understanding of our endearment.
The Thinker swims close by. Sometimes I feel him soaring past me, glancing for a moment, then he’s gone. The house is quiet, doors and shades closed. My nakedness is wrapped in blankets and the aroma of pumpkin spice from a candle. My stage is empty, no audience of any sort. These are the moments when examination of behavior, discipline, and self-honesty rise above the solitude. A woman of lovers rather than husbands, beckons my heart to open to the odyssey of love.
I appreciate all the new followers from the THE THINKER story. Thank you for
your comments and hope you return for more.

” a woman of lovers rather than husbands”…. I was that from the day I was born!!!..Now I am a woman of friends and ” loyalists” rather than lovers or husbands or even pets! Am leaving in 18 hurs….shipped more outfits than I know I will ever wear. Am trying out a new look. BLACK!!! I never wear it…SCAREY…but somehow sexier and more dangerous than Hermes burnt orange !!! Wonder how this will all shake down..It is my ” shakedown tour”. AM SO READY for this shift!!! Been too long at no fair!!!

No kidding? Me too. Learned from books and films that forbidden love is irresistible, pays well, and gives a woman independence.
Good trip for you; just make the most of your boots and bag, then return them. Make it a great trip by just being out of medicare.
In the future send your personal comments to be otherwise they pop up on my website.
