Contemplations about Life, Love, & the Pursuit of Meaningful Existence…

Yin and Yang — Love’s Intricate Dance


How strong our relationships would be if we could see and respect that we are all perfectly imperfect for our journey.” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free


Ideal Partners

struggling lovers

Purposefully Connected


Spurred to Be Your Best

letting yourself go

Compassionate Confidantes

secrets exploited

Fearlessly Vulnerable

skeptically withdrawn

Gracious Compromiser

dying to be right

Respectfully Interacting

insatiable ego

Gallivanting Atop Cloud Nine

ricocheted back to earth















💞 💞 💞

May we honor one another with the best of our selves

Sharing our hearts as deeply as we can reach

Demonstrating humility when we stumble

Evoking more laughter than tears

 Sashaying harmoniously closer with each challenge overcome

Choosing serenity over drama

Mindful our journeys around the sun are limited

Celebrating 💘LOVE💘 in all its fabulously flawed glory

  7. How beautiful and creative, Shauna. Love is indeed an intricate dance. The steps are not always easy, and the music tends to change from time to time.

    • Thank you, Dear Tiny! Your summary is spot-on, and I definitely do a fine job of keeping my poor husband guessing at each week’s tune. Fortunately, we’re pretty good at stumbling our way through just about anything at this point… Sending love & happiness to you! 💗

  8. excellent post, young lady… me gusta mucho! ❤
    @"Celebrating 💘LOVE💘 in all its imperfect glory…" – si, claro que si… de acuerdo contigo, guapa, olé! 🙂 why?!… 'cause first of all: perfection does NOT exist and 2nd of all: if it did, I guess it would be quite boring… 😉 I do believe that love makes us dance and write poetry… 🙂

    dancing and poetry have words in common, ’cause any poet could be a dancer, too… as spectators, we try to spell out the movements of the body and of the poetic language since both are often mysterious… there’s a natural link between them, through music which is shared ART of living and sometimes a therapy… we dance or we write to celebrate joy, love, but also to show pain, absence, void, lack… we all try to communicate, to interact, to meet, to meet together – like free electrons, since dancing and poems need a space of total freedom to exist… let’s dance and let’s write – choose the order that you want and which fits you best! 🙂

    • Thank you for your ever-gracious & supportive love, Dear Mélanie! Your dancer/poet link is magical. Thank you for sharing your divine post! Cheers to always finding that beautiful “space of total freedom” to share our art within… 💃 ♥

  9. Ah! I really love this!! Thanks for the gift of your words ❤

  10. Love the image, love the poem, love the yin/yang! ♥
