Return to Me

Reborn on the 4th of July

Reborn on the 4th of July

I was catching up on my Marvel Comics movies that included Captain America and finally saw the last “Iron Man” installation with Robert Downey, Jr.  Much to my surprise, I related to his panic attacks and anxiety after, I’m assuming, his adventures with the superheroes of S.H.I.E.L.D.  But the line that resonated with me was when he turned to an ex-lover to say, “At least, in the mornings I wake up to a person … with a soul.
The first half of the year, I was meeting men who were more or less soul-less.  With a month in mid-way through the year, I made it the cutting-off point to aim higher.  One of them even told me I was looking for Superman.  Quite frankly, my retort is why the hell not?  The Man of Steel at his core stood for truth, justice and the American Way.  Like Iron Man, he was still at work in progress.
Back to placid waters
Back to placid waters
So I am once again returning to me, armed with more experience and the wisdom of formerly divorced women friends whose advice is to slow down and have patience.  I must keep a sense of humor, fill my mind with more positive thoughts and–never mind the destination–be and enjoy the journey.
