Last night, I attended a birthday get-together for a friend in his loft. While there, I harkened back to meeting him back in 1999 on New Year's Eve in NYC. I guess technically I met him in 1999 as it turned into 2000. Shortly after meeting him, I moved to L.A. where he lived and we've become friends since then. Looking at all the people in attendance at his shindig, I could clearly see that he's loved. And boy oh boy what a feeling being loved is. I've only once had a birthday soiree in my honor. All planned by an ex. And I enjoyed it. I really did. What I know for sure is that NOBODY and I mean NOBODY wants to live on this planet alone. EVERYBODY needs to FEEL love. EVERYBODY. And I intend to love as MANY and as OFTEN as I can. And I'm NOT talkin' romantic love. I'm talkin' ALL-ENCOMPASSING love. What a sense of POWER you feel when you know FOR A BONA FIDE FACT that YOU ARE LOVED.
