Random Thoughts

Oh the pleasure of sweet love

Greetings from the Mad Dater,


How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. ~Elizabeth B. Browning

What is Love? I asked this question and several others to random  people and the answers varied.

Some say love is a feeling.

I say, just because you feel doesn’t make it so.

How do people know that their in love?

Some say, people in love have a special glow.

I say, could be a suntan or good skin genes.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Some say, its possible.

I say, love is said to be blind.

Why do people fall out of love?

Some say, they out grow each other.

I say, maybe it wasn’t love.

What say you?


Spoken Word



171916It lies not in our power to love or hate

For will in us is  over-ruled by fate.

When two are stripped, long ere the

course begin,

We wish that one should lose, the other


And one especially do we affect

Of two gold ingots, like in each respect.

The reason no man knows; let it suffice,

What we behold is censured by our eyes.

Where both deliberate, the love is slight;

Who ever loved, that love not a first


Christopher Marlowe
