Feeling introspective.........

Watching the sun set with no one to share always makes me aware of my aloneness. It is one of the few times that I do......feel alone.


I don't want it to be that way anymore. I'm in the process of changing that part of my life.


Toes entwined in the sand, while fingers are entwined also, will be the beginning of bliss. Sharing is the goal. Love, life, laughter and all that goes with it.........ALL that goes with it.


WHEN it works out, and it will - NO MORE watching sunsets, or for that matter, sunrises alone.

Babs, you´ve been single since your 30s. And you´re a fun and attractive babe. Why did you wait till now, it appears, to seriously start looking for a permanent relationship?

Here's the "short" of it. For the first ten years I was trying to raise 3 teenagers and get them through college; for a lot of the that time I was working 80 hours a week to keep roofs over everyone's heads; and then for 5 1/2 years I was caring for my daughter and then the next 4 I had nothing to give. That gives me the last year or so to "get it together"..........and hopefully I have. That's not to say there weren't loves in my life in those years, three important ones, but none important enough to marry.
So, to sum it up, first focus - the kids; second focus - the business - third, my daughter and halleluia, now it's my time!

Babs, I lost my partner 3 years ago and understand a lot of what you are feeling. I have recently fallen in love again when I did not think it would happen. Here's to no more lonely sunsets...for either of us. K

Well written indeed. I understood your feelings. Sunsets are meant to be shared.
