I’m enjoying my coffee in my Gene Pearson mug and listening to Oleta Adams bleating out “ I don’t care how you get here, but get here if you can. “
Given the times and the call to stay home and self isolate, such a plea is folly because trains, planes and even feet are all restricted and down.
But the mind and technology can bridge the gap.
You certainly can’t cuddle up and hug, which is often a balm and probably what many of us need. However, we have to make do and share our feelings and express our needs in other ways.
There was a time for me, when that plea to a lover was as urgent as Oleta sings. There was a time when desire bridged that gap and distance heighten the desire. Desire is a strong emotion, and while sometimes it is not always grounded in reality, it surely can motivate.
If there has been someone you have been hoping would “get here” now is the time to let that person know. So often, because we want to protect our hearts, we refrain from just expressing our true desires, afraid if saying it, and the feelings are not returned, we will be embarrassed. But we still pine and deprive our desires.
Your pride will survive if the sentiments are not mutually shared.
Now more than ever, this time is demanding that we brave and bear our hearts and open the canals of love.
Your needs will not be met, if you keep them to yourselves. You cannot find and receive love if you guard your heart.
The mystery of the heart will not be solved by keeping it protected. We desire and love who we do, and all that is important is that we make choices that will uplift and soothe our hearts.
I am asking this yet unknown man to “Get Here, ” however and as quickly as he can, when we are on the other side of COVID 19. I am ready again for partnership and love, and desire, to be wrapped in the arms of a man whose passion is mutual.
Asé! Let it be! Come forth!!!
