Yesterday was the day of love. I think that everyday should be about love. Love for myself, love for others, for my HP and all that good stuff that keeps the species ticking along.
My Valentine's Day was a nice one. A good dinner, some nice cards, some gifts to each other, and a good relaxed feeling. It's the relaxed feeling that I've come to realize is the lasting feeling.
I remember when love was all anxiety and hot stuff. It was a rocket ride that occurred in my body and mind. If I think back to my first kiss or first sexual experience, it sets off a bit of anxiety in my head.
Do you remember your first kiss? I do and it was something that felt like fireworks. It was at my 17th birthday party. The buildup was nerve wracking but the result was pure pleasure. Yes, it was awkward and over too soon but it created a craving that is hard to describe.
I think what happens after we become secure and content with the other person, is that the desire is still there but the ability to sustain such a heightened state of excitement dwindles. I still like the kick of endorphins and the excitement of that first kiss. But I think that the ability to relax with each other and appreciate intimacy is also powerful. Sex is just one part of intimacy. Just like the burning fuse is one part of the whole fireworks explosion.
Hope that you have a relaxing weekend.
