What America means to me

I am a globalist, a One-World-ist. I believe nations and borders are evil and dangerous and deplete the economic well being of people everywhere. Therefore, why does the 4th of July and the spirit behind it mean so much to me? Answer: Because the 4th of July is not about loyalty to a nation. It is about declaring independence from a repressive state or empire and forming “a more perfect union” “of the people, by the people and for the people”. And even though the words in quotes are from later dates, the spirit of equality and inalienable entitlement to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” that was actually invoked on this date, are contained in them. To me, America is much less a place or a nation than an idea and an ideal which is better than who we can sometimes be yet matches who we can be if we at all times strive for self-improvement and for a more perfect union among ourselves. It is an ideal of universality. Jefferson clearly declares “All men…”, including woMEN, not only American born men, and further stresses this universality by declaring that we are all created equal and therefore that to violate that equality is to sin against the Creator Him/Her/Itself.

Further, he declares that that the entitlements to life (which can only be guaranteed by universal health care, availability of antioxidant healthy food and gun rights that are used only responsibly through strict laws and enforcement), liberty (which can only be maintained and affirmed by using it responsibly so as to affirm and protect all others’ liberty no matter who they are or what land they are from) and the pursuit of happiness are inalienable.

I believe America can only fulfill our mission as Americans when we enact into our Constitution these 3 inalienable rights as inviolable law and, further, when we expand our Constitution’s both rules and liberties to all peoples, when everywhere is that ideal land of America, not the America of today but the America envisioned in these founding words so many years ago yet which are so many light years ahead of the really bad attitude with which this country is being governed today.

And the Constitution’s preamble to “form a more perfect union” means to me that each day we all, both collectively and individually, must try harder to advance our lives as well ad the founding spirit of our democracy and let up in making ourselves “more perfect” and better united each day. It is to this that I pledge allegiance.

Your Picture

Good morning baby. I see your picture in my phone baby face, the old profile picture that made me fall in love with you and I kiss those amazing thick lips you have in the picture many times while I cherish and can’t believe that you’re my baby baby.

Your heart is my heart ðŸ’™

you’re always with me smiling at me or looking at me with your deep dark love of suffering that is now transforming to great joy

Because your suffering is my suffering Your pain is my pain Your hope is my hope Your trust is my trust Your yearning is my yearning Your passion is my passion Your joy is my joy
Your sighs of ecstasy and sheer delight are my sighs of ecstasy and sheer delight.
Your heart is my heart 💙
Let’s nurture and love and take care of our one heart and be careful so it don’t break. Because it is the only heart we have.
We both need each other so much baby. To lose each other would be agony for both of us

But whatever you do, Please never stop loving me. Sometimes love comes gushing forth in torrents. Other times, we have to remember to love each other. Hard times seem to take centuries while good times seem only seconds long. But love is 1% infatuation, 99% perspiration. It is only kept alive through The sheer force of will and determination. I may go through shifting moods like weather. But I never want to lose you forever. We are two very different people. But what a rich tapestry we are together. We are two very dynamic people yet still incomplete as two. But we are so greater and richer combining together as one. We may have our trying times, annoying habits, come to forget what made us ever desire each other. But whatever you do, darling, Please never, ever stop loving me. I pledge to you and vow to myself, never, ever to stop loving you. ðŸ˜š

Sometimes love comes upon you faster than you can imagine. Are you ready?

A person of complaint can not be ready for love when it comes. A person of inner happiness can always be ready. To see which one you are, read everyone’s comments on Facebook, and then read your own comments next to those of other people. Do your comments sound like those of the people whose comments annoy you or do they sound like those of the people who really encourage you. Your honest answer will let you know if you are ready. This applies to married people as well so don’t tell yourself it doesn’t apply to me. Your life is always on the line. Nothing is guaranteed.

A TRAVES DE LAS PAREDES FRONTERIZAS

To my sweet love,

A mi dulce amor,

I know our love has been moving fast on the mental plane.

Sé que nuestro amor se ha estado moviendo rápido en el plano mental.

At the same time, it has been moving very slowly in the physical realm.

Al mismo tiempo, se ha estado moviendo muy lentamente en el reino físico.

Every night I go to bed very lonely and flooded over with continually frustrated desire to clasp my body in passion to a very beautiful woman like you.

Cada noche me voy a la cama muy sola e inundada con el deseo continuamente frustrado de abrochar mi cuerpo en la pasión a una mujer muy hermosa como tú.

On the days and nights when you greet me and tell me you love me with your emoji kisses, my heart is filled with hope and my life with happiness.

En los días y noches en que me saludas y me dices que me amas con tus besos emoji, mi corazón está lleno de esperanza y mi vida de felicidad.

Just two or three words from you, “Good morning baby” or “I love you sweetheart” are all I need because I know your situation and you need to work long hours every day.

Apenas dos o tres palabras de usted, “bebé del buen día” o “te amo cariño” son todo lo que necesito porque sé su situación y usted necesita trabajar largas horas cada día.

But last night you didn’t text me back and my heart sank in severe darkness.

Pero anoche no me has texto de nuevo y mi corazón se hundió en la oscuridad severa.

I know you must have been very tired from working every day 12 long hours.

Sé que debes estar muy cansado de trabajar todos los días durante 12 largas horas.

Any other woman would have given up on our love long ago. We don’t speak the same language, don’t come the same country or culture, don’t even have work schedules that match each other, don’t have the same religion, don’t listen to the same music, don’t laugh at the same jokes, don’t barely get to plant sweet kisses on each other’s tasty lips.

Cualquier otra mujer habría renunciado a nuestro amor hace mucho tiempo. No hablamos el mismo idioma, no llegamos al mismo país o cultura, ni siquiera tenemos horarios de trabajo que coinciden, no tenemos la misma religión, no escuchamos la misma música, T risa en las mismas bromas, no apenas consigue plantar besos dulces en los labios sabrosos del uno al otro.

But still you held onto me long after others, with so much more in common, would have quit.

Pero aún así se mantuvo en mí mucho después de que otros, con mucho más en común, hubieran dejado.

So last night, when you didn’t text, I got scared you fell out of love and into the common sense that says this is too crazy and you decided it was too much not to drop, and my heart sank.

Así que ayer por la noche, cuando no escribiste, me asusté que te cayeras de amor y en el sentido común que dice que esto es demasiado loco y decidiste que era demasiado para no caer, y mi corazón se hundió.

I had asked you, because we couldn’t get our days matched up, to let me pick you up and spend the night and it seems you got reasonably scared because we’ve only seen each other in person for all of one work break and a meal at a restaurant but not really spent time together.

Te lo había preguntado, porque no podíamos conseguir que nuestros días coincidieran, para dejar que te recoja y pasar la noche y parece que tienes un miedo razonablemente porque sólo nos hemos visto en persona durante toda una pausa de trabajo y Una comida en un restaurante pero realmente no pasamos tiempo juntos.

You are working to avoid deportation while I am working to avoid death from diabetes due to loss of insurance and massive debt.

Usted está trabajando para evitar la deportación mientras estoy trabajando para evitar la muerte por diabetes debido a la pérdida de seguro y la deuda masiva.

Of course it seems wise at this time not to complicate our lives with the extremely hot fire of love. But honey I ask you please to do it anyway and come burn with me. For what is life without love but a living death? And there’ll be plenty of time to be dead when we really are dead. We’ve come so far and merged our hearts together in this great, amazing love, to give up now. We can’t give up, honey, We’ve got to hold on, we’ve come too far even in this short time already.

Por supuesto, parece prudente en este momento no complicar nuestras vidas con el fuego extremadamente caliente del amor. Pero cariño te pido por favor que lo hagas de todos modos y venga a quemar conmigo. ¿Qué es la vida sin amor, sino una muerte viva? Y habrá mucho tiempo para morir cuando realmente estamos muertos. Hemos llegado tan lejos y hemos unido nuestros corazones en este gran y asombroso amor, para renunciar ahora. No podemos rendirnos, cariño, Tenemos que aguantar, hemos llegado demasiado lejos en este corto tiempo.

Yes, I know we are caught now having to take a tremendous risk and do something very scary or else lose everything we have together. I know spending nights together is the only way since there are no days we can spend together. I know we don’t know enough yet to know how the years will turn, both of us having brought ourselves to the bitter pain of divorce through the tempestuous flames of youthful desire. But I say, baby, no love is ever perfect and every love demands you sacrifice more for it than you want to or are comfortable giving. But I say to you, darling, be brave and take this chance with me while we still have it. I will be there with you every step of the way and I promise you you will be so glad even despite the hardship we must take now to get there. But as the first Selena sang in a song many, many years ago, the one who sang in both English and Spanish, “Listen to your heart”. Please my baby. Don’t listen to fear. I know we can win big. You don’t have to chant NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO with me. It is enough that I do for us to gain absolute victory in life. Just by supporting me, the one who does chant, you are assured absolute victory in life, victory over incredible odds. Let’s not let this movie come to an unhappy ending. People are watching us and want to see us happily married forever. Now is our chance baby. I beg you don’t be scared. Come. Come spend the nights we have now and Let’s build our love into a treasure trove of happiness so not only we but our friends can see that love can work out in the lives of two courageous who trust each other and the forces of fortune and that there is still a chance for the human race. Come. Come join me, and together Let’s smash this border wall once and for all.

To say, “I love you” isn’t enough to express all I feel for you, love, but I will say these 3 (or 2) words anyway because they’re all I have.

I LOVE YOU, Y_______

♥️

MARC
