Friends 'Til The End

                                                                "THE INVITATION"

I am interested in meeting women from all over, someone that I can talk too, someone who is rather chatty.
Someone that's willing to take a chance, she's more inclined to say yes to new experiences.
I am adventurous, spontaneous, conservative, rather romantic with a great sense of humor. It doesn't interest
me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts
longing? It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for
your dreams, for the adventure of being alive? It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I
want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened to life's betrayals or
have become shrivelled and closed from the fear of further pain? I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine
or your own, without having to hide it or fake it? I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you
can dance with the wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning
us to be careful, be realistic or to remember the limitations of being human. It doesn't interest me if the story
you are telling is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself? If you can bear the
accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul? I want to know if you can see beauty even when its not
pretty everyday? And if you source your life for its pure essence? I want to know if you can live with failure,
yours and mine, and still stand straight and shout "Yes". It doesn't interest me to know where you live  or how
much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised
to the bone and do what needs to be done for the children. It doesn't interest me who you know or how you
came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back? It
doesn't interest me where or whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when
all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments. I look forward to hearing from you.
