The mirror has two faces

A quote by Rose Morgan (Barbara Streisland) from the movie “The Mirror has two faces”

l think l’ve reached the point where you know you’ll never get married.

Married? What’s marriage? A ring, a contract. Fighting, compromising.

lt can be more than that. You know what l envy about people in love?

l’d love it if someone really knew me.

What l like. What l’m afraid of. What kind of toothpaste l use.

 l think that would really be wonderful.

 True love has spiritual dimensions, while romantic love is a lie.

 A myth. A soulless manipulation. And speaking of manipulation …

 lt’s like going to the movies and seeing the lovers kiss …

 The music swells, and we buy it, right?

 So when my date kisses me, and l don’t hear strings, l dump him.

 The question is, why do we buy it?

 Because, myth or manipulation, we all want to fall in love.

 That experience makes us feel completely alive.

 Our everyday reality is shattered, and we are flung into the heavens.

 lt may only last a moment, an hour, but that doesn’t diminish its value.

 We’re left with memories we treasure for the rest of our lives.

 l read, ”When we fall in love, we hear Puccini in our heads.”

 l love that. His music expresses our need for passion and romantic love.

 We listen to La Bóheme or Turandot, or read WutheringHeights, –

 – or watch Casablanca, and a little of that love lives in us too.

  So the final question is: Why do people want to fall in love –

 – when it can have such a short run and be so painful?

 – Propagation of the species? – We need to connect with somebody.

 – Are we culturally preconditioned? – Good, but too intellectual for me.

 l think it’s because, as some of you may already know …

               While it does last, it feels fucking great!

 

An open letter to Jean (last name withheld), the person who dumped Cocoa at the pound

I cried…..

A day in the life of lunchy...

Hello.  You don’t know me, and for your sake, you’d best hope and pray that you never have the misfortune to meet me.

How do I know your name?  Because the people at animal control gave me Cocoa’s intake sheet.  You know, the one you filled out.  The one that said Cocoa was 12 years old and you’d had her all those years.  The one that said you were moving to a pet-free apartment and couldn’t take your faithful companion of 12 years.  You know, the one that you said was a “sweet old girl- a wonderful companion.”   The one that said you had limited funds.

Here’s the thing, Jean.  Oh, I didn’t ask if I could call you Jean but I’m going to.  Or I could call you a number of other names, none of which you’d like very much.   When I saw Cocoa’s picture on the…
