HOW DO I MAKE YOU FEEL?
Osiyo or 'Siyo [Hello in Cherokee]
This past weekend Christine (Aquarius) and I decided to run off for the weekend to German wine country in Central Missouri. (Hermann, Missouri to be exact.) We had an outrageously silly time at a wonderful little bed and breakfast that we have stayed at before with our entire group of friends. On the way back home we did our usual "take me home country roads," route which means we take the scenic route home along the country roads. Why would we take the highway home when we can take roads that we've never been on before? The best part is traveling them without even using a map! At least we never think of using a map until we start seriously questioning where we are. Typically wherever Christine and I can follow the Lewis and Clark trail then that's our route and we turn wherever the L and C signs point. So L and C can either stand for Lewis and Clark or for Loretta and Christine. I guess you have to be there to get the full exploratory experience and goofiness of the whole thing.
I enjoy hearing and learning about history. It could be my Cancer Rising because Cancer is attached to history, nostalgia, memorabilia and antiques. I do not collect antiques by any stretch although I do enjoy looking at antiques and hearing historical stories from someone who cares alot more than I do. Their excitement stimulates my interest and quite frankly, I feel smarter having been around someone who knows so much history. After all, we 'enjoy' each other for the way we make each other feel. Correct? I don't want to study history and I don't want to read about history but I absolutely Love hearing about history from someone who appreciates it. So when Christine and I are exploring along, she tells me all about the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark, Thomas Jefferson and the list goes on and on. I probably ask some of THE MOST juvenile questions, but at least I know she won't think an idiot of me for asking. If it hadn't of been raining the whole way back we probably would have stopped at some of the old cemetaries along the way back or found a remote place to do some hiking or bird watching. Oh well . . it was a nice peaceful trip back home along the country roads and even more peaceful after we stopped, filled up our bellies and then I slept the last half hour before we arrived home.
This whole history thing is interesting. I absolutely could not stand history in high school or college. It was all I could do just to tolerate it. I had to work my Rumpelstiltkin off just to have enough energy to study it. I could not have cared less about history but once I am around someone who enjoys it then I want more. Tell me, tell me, tell me. It is also interesting to note that my relationship pattern is typically a man with a doctorate, in addition he will have a couple of degrees and one degree will ALWAYS be in history. It doesn't even surprise me anymore and I have just come to expect it. I am clear that these knowledgable people including my girlfriends like Christine always make me feel smarter because they are loading me up with stuff that I don't think I would receive any other way and I just LOVE that! Peg (Libra in Dallas) is another one that sits in historical information overload and makes me feel smarter at the end of the conversation. I Love learning about things I know nothing about or wouldn't care to learn on my own.
So my question remains, how do I make you feel? This is really a rhetorical question and not one that I necessarily need answered. Since I like to feel smart, I want you to feel smarter when you leave this site. The whole 'smart thing' is probably a 'Gemini thing' because we are the brainiacs and bookworms of the zodiac. I want you to know more about you, than anything, or anyone, else. After all, what could be more interesting than figuring you out? That's crazy cool when you really think about it. We Gemini's rule the brain and there just isn't enough information to jam into our brain, now whether we retain that information is another story. (winky wink) Having said that, I want you to leave this site with your brain so overloaded that you almost tip over from the information. Now THAT'S how I want to make you feel.
