      says you're supposed to want--has to be center-front of your relationship decisions.

      When I was growing up, monogamy, with periods of celibacy between monogamous relationships, was hard-sold to me as "the only way to happiness." Other people had heterosexuality hard-sold to them early in life, as the only way to be "normal" and "healthy."

      My point is that these  are constraints imposed from outside, unless you freely choose them. They won't make you happy.

      It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen

        anybody whose sigline if from my hero Leonard Cohen.

        I'm having more MAJOR disasters with my small law firm and my own health.  I may need to listen to some more Leonard tonight.
