I was born in my family home in the summer of 1968. We lived in a small house on the edge of the Hollywood Hills in a suberb called Highland Park. I survived the sixties and seventies. The eighties found me as a young adult taking the world by storm. By the nineties I had turned my love of travel and photography into a paid world tour. The turn of the century brought about huge changes both good and bad. The millennium gave me success I never dreamed imaginable and now here we are in 2014. Today I am celebrating my 46th birthday on this little planet, I have no regrets and wouldn’t go back and change any single day of my life.
I was woken this morning to Frank Sinatra’s All By Myself. I worked for Frank for years so this was quite a fitting way to start the day. I’m single and live alone but in no way shape or form have I spent one day on this earth all by myself. I have survived two failed marriages betrayal of close friends and have experienced almost everything the world of relationships has to offer. As far as true love is concerned I guess I won’t know it till It finds me.
As we grow the changes in ourselves are constant but I’ve yet to meet a single soul on this earth who wants to go it alone. I don’t either but I do it by choice, I’d rather be single than spend my days with the wrong person just for the sake of not feeling alone. We all have a Yin to our Yang but we can’t force it, the universe will provide only when we are ready to receive.
I had planned a solo birthday bike tour but since I’ve yet to replace the dog trailer I totaled and couldn’t find a sitter for Chloe I decided to spend the day working on the boat with my imaginary girlfriend. I say imaginary but she is real. She is out there floating on the pacific somewhere following the sun. I don’t have any real chriterea for love other than having a mate I can rely on, this is the one thing in this world I have never experienced so I sail on solo, happy and in good company with my imaginary girlfriend.
I don’t remember my first kiss but my next will be my last. Until then I happily sail solo through a sea of choice.
