There’s a certain lesson in love that you have been studying and studying and studying — and yet have never quite mastered. Several different teachers have tried with only partial success to provide you with insights that would allow you to graduate to the next level of romantic understanding. That’s the bad news, Aquarius. The good news is that all this could change in the coming months. I foresee a breakthrough in your relationship with intimacy. I predict benevolent jolts and healing shocks that will allow you to learn at least some of the open-hearted truths that have eluded you all this time.
I am so guilty of this relationship infraction! I know that many women complain about lack of intimacy in their relationships with their spouses or better 1/2’s. I, on the other hand, hate being smothered. I love my space and I am guilty of not being the most affectionate person in the world. Don’t get the wrong impression, my husband and I touch each other and laugh and hug and kiss, but man I hate being suffocated. My husband fits me just perfect because he gives me hugs and kisses and loves. No, we don’t spoon at night and if we do it’s brief. I have one friend that has finally pushed me to the limits of our friendship. Every time he sees me he is always trying to hug me and I finally got to the point where I don’t even want to see him anymore because he’s always trying to put his hands on me and it makes my skin crawl. He thinks I am mad at him, and I guess in a way I am because I have told him to stop trying to hug up on me and he didn’t understand that he is an over whelming bear of a person that is overly affectionate. I really didn’t intend upon hurting his feeling, but “Hello!”, boundaries! I just hope my husband doesn’t feel that I am not affectionate enough….hmmmmm?
“When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another – and ourselves”
Yes it’s true. I have been incredibly busy getting ready for the Celtic Festival at the end of September. I am so excited! This is the first time I will have performed at a Celtic festival and while the work to get ready has been intense I have really enjoyed every minute of it. I am getting in touch with my Welsh roots, not only in my heart but in my music as well. I am learning a lot about the language, but am also learning a lot about myself along the way. I wanted to share a song with you that I am playing at the festival. It is a cover of the Irish band Clannad called “Of This Land” that I have been playing for about 12 years and released it on my album Sublime Evolution. I had no idea that when I started playing this song so many years ago that it would come so close to my heart. So, without further ado here is the video, I hope you enjoy!
