A Head Of Red

on

To the girl with red hair,

I saw you today zipping away in your silver sedan. It isn’t every day that I notice girls passing me on the freeway. But today was different, you were different. My eyes were fixed on you as you rolled down your window and popped your head out. I saw your red hair swaying in the wind. All those stereotypes, facts and genetic traits about redheads came back to me. But I promise you I wasn’t thinking about your low pain tolerance or higher production of vitamin D. I didn’t wonder why bees are attracted to you or if you were left handed. I didn’t think how rare redheads are but how one-of-a-kind you are. I saw the freckles on your nose and the warm scarf around your neck on a summer afternoon. I saw your beautiful smile and your sunburnt arm. I saw the happiness in your eyes and the laughter on your lips. I saw you and I saw why I had never been in love. I don’t know if you’ll be there but I’ll drive up the freeway every day at the same time hoping to see you again.

-Just another blonde guy falling for you

    in Sheldon Cooper Way What Any Of that Other Stuff is Boys Are Fed online

    So MUCH IN THAT ‘OTHER WAY’ THESE DAYS INDEED Yet Anyway there

    Are Different Kinds of Attraction And Again Love is In the Eye of the Beholders

    Yet It’s Also in Smell Hehe As This is why Some Dating Apps in Long Distance

    Relationships Don’t Pan Out Very Well As Subconsciously There Are Natural

    Genetic Associated Compatible Smells of Human Beings Unique to Each

    Human With Attraction And Repulsion too i Heard a Stereotype Not too

    Long ago that ‘White Folks’ Smell Like Sour Milk to East Indian Folks

    As That Was Suggested to be related to Different Diets

    Yet It’s True there are so Many Different Variables

    of Compatibility As That Relates to Environmental
    Experiences and Genetic Ones All Natural As Well

    And With So Many Folks Even Within one Heterogenous
    Culture Going in So Many Different Directions of Life Styles
    And Beliefs As Well It’s No wonder Not Only So Many Young
    Folks Are having difficulty finding Love Yet even finding any Friends

    At All as in the United States in the Last 5 Years Only Fifty Percent
    of People Have Found New Friends and so Many People Have No
    Friends or even Acquaintances At All in ‘The Flesh and Blood World’
    Oh How Connected We’ve come to be Yet even More Disconnected in

    Reality We Are As A Species Now hehe the Purpose for Old Folks Like me

    Is to Tell Stories of Life Experiences to Younger Generations Before We go

    Away Usually by my Age (62) We Aren’t As Distracted by So Many Birds and
    Bees Hehe yet then

    Studying the Human
    Condition after Being
    A Nerd for So Long then
    Identified as Famous and
    Living Dance Legend in my

    Metro area then i Actually Had

    Young Women at Dance Halls Who
    Pulled me to their tables and told me they
    watched me dancing solo and so fearless and
    wished they could be Married to someone Just

    like me Just based on a fearless dance Not even

    blasted with a Nerd Fred-Talk Like this Hehe It’s true generally

    Speaking Most everyone can Handle my Dance More than my

    Mind Yet those Top 10 Ten Academic Girls in School Raced Right

    Along with

    my Mind

    True There is
    Physical Attraction
    Emotional Connection
    Spiritual Communion And
    Yes Intellectual Stimulation too

    And With All Four Indeed So Much to Love About Life mY FRiEnD
    This Tree of Life With So many Leaves of Green to Raise our Trees Higher

    And This Vine Of Love This Rose with FLoWeRS and THoRNS EVeR
    Changing ACross Entire Lifespans at Best it seems We Inhale Peace
    Exhale Love Give, Share, Care, Heal Freely For All With Last Harm

    Anyway Hehe This is my Old Man Story For You Today And for
    me at least when the Young Women Don’t Wanna Get Married
    to Someone Just Like me at the Dance Hall Anymore Hehe if
    Covid-19 Ever Actually Goes Away Where it is Truly Safe Enough
    to Go Back in a Crowd of 1000 College Age Drunk Folks to Inspire

    (Other than that i Have 2000 Selfies With them and my Wife
    At 52 Is Still Moving Art in Beauty Aesthetically Speaking
    Beyond All the Young Women i met there with SMiles
    True one of my Female Indian FRiEnDS Calls
    my Wife Supernatural For Real This way Hehe)

    Them That the
    Dance Within
    Free Needs
    No Substances
    From Outside to
    Grow Wings in Flow

    It Won’t Make a Bit of
    Difference to me as the Highest
    Communion of Humans is Spiritual
    Then Emotional Then Intellectual Then Physical

    Leave Out Any of the Loving Four of These Three
    And at Least there are Three more to Fall Back on Hehe…

    And Of Course Just A Brief Overview As True i Could Write A Longest
    EPiC Long Form Poem Bible “SonG oF mY SoUL” to Describe the Rest of the

    Story So
    in 10.7
    MiLLioN
    Words Yes!

    I Just Did it

    Hehe With SMiLes…

    And It’s Always Beginning

    With the Birth of Every Word

    And Every Move of Dance Every Touch of Our Humanity Real…
