Love Rant

There is something that has been getting to me,

Far more than what most think,

It’s this misconception of a common belief,

That a man should always chase the woman or she will leave,

But this concept is too one-sided for me,

If I take a step forward and you continue to step away from me,

How could this ever be how love is found; don’t you see,

If I am trying to get you closer to me,

Then why do you continue to walk away from me,

If my love and getting to know me is what you really seek,

Why do I always have to be the one to respond first,

Then criticized by others for feeling love’s thirst,

You say love is what you want, then why me, the man, the only one at work,

Then you wonder why from exhaustion my love takes a ride in a watered down Hurst,

Then I see you ask why can’t you find a good man,

Well you did, but you just didn’t understand,

That a relationship takes more than a chase and me saying, well I ran,

Love is a cross country event and it takes a much better plan,

Cause we are all sprinters, but you are always a step ahead of me,

I’m not asking you to slow down; I’m saying turn towards me,

Cause no journey is too long if we will just meet in the middle,

After all, that is the only answer to true love’s riddle,

“How can a person find love?”

Alone the fact is they can’t,

Because it takes two to rise above,

This is love’s truth and the end of my rant.

“As you can see, my legs are bionic,” said Hugh Herr on the TED2014 stage. “The artificial part of my body is malleable, able to take on any form, any function, a blank slate through which to create structures that can extend beyond biological capability.”

Standing tall in a suit hemmed at his knees, Herr spoke eloquently about his work creating the next generation of bionic limbs. He demonstrated how his own worked as he spoke, moving gracefully around the red carpet. This talk—which ended with ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis performing for the first time since she lost her left leg in the Boston Marathon bombing—was one of the most-beloved of TED2014…

Sounds good

Originally posted on Rantings of an Amateur Chef:

I announced earlier that in honor of March Madness, I decided to create a dessert bracket with 16 styles of desserts. I’ve invited 16 great chefs to each take a category and make a recipe to enter into battle. I ranked the 16 based on my view of which was the favorite and like any bracket, the favorites are matched against the lower seeds. I won’t give you my seeding because I do not want to artificially impact your choices.

I will post a pairing each week on Wednesday and Thursday and open the polls for voting. The polls will be open from Thursday until the following Wednesday (before the next pair posts). The winner of each matchup with the most votes will move on to the next round and the chef will produce another recipe for their new matchup. The overall winner will receive any prizes I can acquire…

IF I DIE TONIGHT

IF I DIE TONIGHT

If I die tonight what would I want you to know,
If I lost my life tonight where would you go,
If the darkness came for me where would my light show,
Blood of my veins but does my love flow,
I guess I want you to know my heart is tied to yours,
After you it closed all doors,
You got the ceiling and I need no floors,
It is for you alone I got no more one mores,
If the life left me there is no need to stay,
I would never to ask you to live that way,
But Just once you know what I have to hear you say,
I will look down and trust I know baybay,
So if the darkness takes me just know the light will shine,
And for an eternity only you will be mine,
I will wait for you on the other side,
But live life just save that little part of you that we said was mine,
And trust my love will flow with the rain,
That’s just me trying to wash away your pain,
So break away from it because I leave no chains,
God will send another to take those reigns,
So If I die tonight I want you to know I did not go,
So let the light show and go with the flow,
Because My Love will watch over you Blow for Blow,
And God will take you and the right way he will Show.
