The Fire

I remember that time you told me
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
'Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time.

My blood
my holy wine
tastes so bitter and so sweet
Well I could drink a case of you, darling
and I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet

- Joni Mitchell, "A Case of You"

Here's what invokes my passions, my desires - and sometimes, my anger.

Passions (rated PG)

Desires (that's what I want)

all of this world is fleeting, but you know, that doesn't keep me from wanting it sometimes. Here's excerpts from a card I carry in my wallet which talks about what I want, plus some additions. I actually got into a lot of trouble with a former friend for wanting these things, I think she had a problem with the very idea of it - or perhaps she was afraid because she didn't see herself in the list. It is not a very circumspect list, mind you. In other words, I didn't really filter it through the, "Should I want this?" filter. I just want them. Just in case the Genie appears and asks me what I want:

Attained Desires

Here is my (ever growing) list of Attained Desires!!! Yay!

Anger

I'm a pretty easy-going guy. Here's what ticks me off.

OK, that's enough of that. I am sure I can go on, but why?

Finally, here is a page of fiery polemics from Usenet, for what they're worth.
