The Invitation & The Longing

Am reposting this from my multiply site. Why? because it seems that my invitee has come and i've found the one i've been longing for... feel blessed to have met my angel...

Wana share these exerpts which i just love right now... it's from the book The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, given to me by dear planning sister & friend Bia! :p . The cover of the book goes:

it doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
i want to know what you ache for,
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
it doesn't interest me how old you are.
i want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for Love, for your Dream,
for the Adventure of being alive....

following however, pretty much captured my sentiments, for who? well, i don't know yet... (now i know who it's for ^_^)

i want to be courted by truth.
let the stories that are telling our lives spin out in long multicolored threads.
don't tell me too much, too soon.
don't hide anything.
tell the tales of your heart,
offer them like perfect pearls coming up from the depths of the sea to be strung together,
each gently clicking against theother,
luminous and iridescent as they roll out of the moistness.
ten years from now i want to hear a story of your childhood i have never heard before
and know the delight and ongoing awe of seeing each other for the first time,
again & again.
give me each picture slowly,
so i can sit with it and find you, and the glimpses of me,
and the foreshadows of us there in the details.
i want to talk in seamless conversation all night long
and find ourselves able to hold the silence together for days,
our intimacy sharpened by shared solitude...
