Love Me Without Fear

Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free...
Will never fly away

(CNN) Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of the United States and the nation's first African-American president Tuesday. This is a transcript of his prepared speech.

My fellow citizens:

I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

I stood with Rob (and hundreds of others) in Sproul Plaza this morning at UC Berkeley with tears of joy and relief streaming down my cheeks as President Barack Hussein Obama, 44th President of the United States of America was sworn into office.

I then stood through his remarkably moving and incredibly articulate speech and was grateful once again for the choice this country made in this particular election.

This is a day I will never forget.

The Invitation -- Oriah Mountain Dreamer

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.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us to
be careful
be realistic
remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

This woman is an inspiration to have in my life as a friend. She radiates beauty, warmth, and charm, and renews the joy that is living (my choice!). I feel truly blessed to call Tanya a friend! Lots of hugs!

Not only is this woman incredibly sweet and likeable, she is also an insanely talented photographer. After doing our 500-picture photoshoot, she asked me to whittle it down to my 20 favorites- and I couldn't do it. She took too many outstanding photos for me to toss out that many. She is so easy to work with, and has a beautiful eye for lighting and framing.

Tanya is great. She's got an infectious enthusiasm for life. Sometimes I feel happy, and I look around and realize that Tanya is there. It must be her.

But she's also a dirty, dirty old woman. Except she's not old. But, man, she's dirty...

I didn't know this when I first met
you but, one of the things that I now call
a good things in my life is...

Your Laugh

Even when it is just you writing LOL or HA
HA. I can hear you laugh and it makes me smile.
Please don't misunderstand, your laugh seems to
light up the space around you (and me for that
much like the laughter in Monsters Inc. know
what I mean.
Thanks for being a friend to me and my family

I freakin' love Tanya. She makes me smile all the way from my toes - and I've known her a really long time - not too many people can keep the joy rolling like that.
