Dear Stuart

Man and Woman Couple Wearing Their Silver Couple Bond Ring

I know

Well, I think I know

I understand

Well, I think I understand

It’s alright

If you are alright, then I am alright

We’re at peace

If you are at peace, then I am at peace

I wondered

From the start I admit I wondered

The clues

I’m not great with cryptic clues

Your journey

I am here beside you on your journey

Your honesty

To be honest, I am moved by your honesty

These secrets

That we share, they’ll remain secrets

The trust

We shared, is something you can trust

These questions

I’ve been asking, you’ve answered my questions

My love

For you has changed, it’s a different kind of love

This friendship

I won’t abandon, for we all need special friends

This bosom

Deep within, you still rest here in this bosom

Party Like A Rock Star

lika rocksatr.jpgSo I was chatting with someone the other day. Very mellow kind of person, but I worry overly-timid. He has every reason to be confident, but I can see in the way he holds himself, there is an awkwardness there.

Anyway…he was telling me he had been invited to go to a party and he did not want to go. I asked him why not. He described the party to me. There will be no alcohol he mentioned, there will be music and dancing, there will be food, real food, there will be a lot of people. Well…I was confused, that sounds like a great party to me!

neffyPoor dear, he explained he has to go to the party, it’s not something he can excuse himself from without upsetting family. So I kept giving him tips, on how to be at a party, encouraging him to take a positive view. I explained there are bound to be more women there. There are always more women at parties. I told him they will have made the effort to dress up and will want to have a great time. It should be easy for a man. He only has to stand around, and mutter a little and smile. He should not be shy and stand in the corner. He should be gallant, start conversations, offer to get drinks, be willing to dance. I don’t understand how he can go wrong. Anyone can party if they really want to!

peerpsI could see that whatever I said to him was not working. He just kept on pulling faces. Oh, he needs someone like “Jack” to teach him how it is done! Anyway, I gave up in the end. If he doesn’t want to enjoy the party – he won’t. My last words before we parted were: “Have a great time and remember PARTY LIKE A ROCK STAR!!”

Anyway, it’s his choice. He says he will go, I just want him to choose to enjoy it and have a good time. But that’s up to him. All we can do is hope he remembers all of my helpful advice! Just get out there and the floor and party like I showed you!
