I See It!

For those of you unfamiliar with the excellent blog In Search Of Isis, I suggest that you click on the link and check it out. The blog is written by ECD and his mission is to celebrate the beauty of women everywhere. Yesterday, I caught a glimpse of what he sees everyday.

The first time I got this glimpse was as I stood at a service counter. I noticed that the girl serving me was beautiful. The way she spoke and carried herself just seemed to me to be amazing. I am a young guy and something would be amiss if I didn’t notice beautiful women. She was beautiful, this much is true, but I wasn’t fixated on her beauty in a typical male way. I seemed to recognize her as a person and not just a vision of beauty.

Later on that same day, I had the same feeling wash over me while looking at another girl. She was a waitress in a restaurant. She wasn’t gorgeous in a supermodel kind of way but she again had a natural beauty and presence that seemed to captivate me.

I didn’t pursue these girls in a romantic way at all. It never really crossed my mind until our all too brief encounters were far over. The memories of how I was feeling at the time of both encounters have stayed with me since yesterday. I think I saw what ECD sees everyday. I appreciate the beauty and grace and it is only well after the fact now that I feel lonely and empty.

  1. Thank You for the “plug,” Chase.

    I’m thrilled to hear You had an experience like that. It becomes a way of life, a joy that comes to life in the presence of any Woman, as one concentrates on whatever it is that makes Her beautiful.

    But it should not leave you feeling lonely and empty! )o:

    Somewhere out there is a wonderful Woman who will appreciate and love the caring, intelligent man that you are, Chase. I hope that you find Her, or that She finds you, soon.

  2. It is very special to have such moments, to notice the essence of another in their grace and manner….
    I applaud as a woman….
    and as I am a waitress myself, I stand as I applaud

  3. Hi, Chase! I just found you through the Isis site. In line with your blog post about the natural beauty of women that ECD sees every day, you might enjoy my blog, “Magickal Novels & Empowering Thoughts for Women.” Check it out when you get a chance.

    Many blessings, and I’m putting your blog on my daily visit list!

  4. Fabulous! Congratulations Chase. 🙂

    I’m impressed by men who can see through how I don’t add up to the people you see on magazine covers. :p

    If you’re traveling around my area, feel free to stop by!

    The secret to getting rid of the lonely and empty feelings is to recognize the same within yourself. 😀

  5. Thanks Dawn. I don’t know why but lately I have been thinking a lot about soulmates. It makes me lonely to know that some people have found theirs and that mine is eluding me.

    I don’t dwell on it much. It was just a thought I had today.

  6. Dawn: A person like You doesn’t “add up” to magazine covers — You exceed them.

    You are a real person, a Woman whose beauty is not the result of surgery and editorial airbrushing but of being who You are — of wholeheartedly loving animals and people and this thing called life.

    The red hair is a plus, too. (o:
