Guru

Okay ,I have a new teacher or I have decided he is my teacher at a distance. It has been percolating for a while. First I want to admit that everyone I meet in person and here in this virtual reality is my teacher so don't feel left out. Nothing happens in my experience that isn't a lesson or a teaching that I can glean something from. The meaner, crankier the source, the more I pay attention and the more love I feel toward whatever appears or whomever, making this life fascinating...and essential to surviving. Otherwise the world is too harsh and people too sad and wretched for me to find light. If I can see the "oh" in something I get excited and turned on. So I was watching a Biography on Johnny Depp and I feel in love with his "way". Not the actual man although I have met him and spoken with him and adored HIM. No, it's not him it's his integrity. I like how he rolls. We trust him when we watch his work to do the very deepest best in everything. That takes a special brand of man/woman. Delicious, his heart is huge and his approach (acting/life/love) so deep and his way so enticing. I know he is a hard drinking hygienically challenged maniac, I don't care. I know people have harsh words for him...join the world and club of life, who here is perfect? I just love his essence and I model him. I want that confidence to be so true to what is "THE THING" and deep and full of "fun". I think he is a joyous person and he is generous with it.
He makes me a better person, a better everything...it's heartening.

Thank you for being one of my GURU's... Johnnyji!

Nice tribute to a unique LIVING person. We should all do it more often instead of waiting til they're dead. The media has us in a trance because good news doesn't sell. I'd like to propose a national edict that Mondays be only good news days(barring local emergencies)...to get the week off right.

Wonderful message....and ditto glt. We should all be celebrating the now, instead of mourning the past. As a friend recently said -- Life isn't about waiting for the storms to pass...it's about learning to dance in the rain. The media could definitely use more tap shoes and umbrellas.

I can see where you'd connect with him.

The two of you strike me as free spirits :-)
