“If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track, which has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living” -Joseph Campbell
The highs and lows have been extreme lately. More and more my daily effort and my passion merge into something that an onlooker might call my bliss. Some days I am overcome with the sheer luck of being able to spend my days promoting love. The story grows and amplifies with each success, and yesterday I was on the 11 pm news. But the real win is in the notes that our friends and customers send to us. Like me, they are just working to love the lives they have chosen and some days are better than others.
When the message clearly hits its mark, there is no amount of marketing money that can create the authentic gratitude of people re-discovering their capacity for love and intimacy. It is the most valuable thing that I do, besides loving the family I have created with as much tenderness and patience as I can muster.
Thank you to all of you who take the time to ask your questions and share the love:
“Can’t wait to read your new book! My wife and I have been married for 29 years, and even though we are seldom alone together (6 special needs kids in the house) and go to bed every night exhausted from the noise and constant demands of the family, we still find the last shred of energy every night and connect with each other. That usually is limited to holding hands for a bit and sleepily exchanging “I love you”, but that can be enough. We’ve recently realized that we need to work on regaining the intimate part of our relationship, and your products have been a key part of it.
Thank you for developing such a gentle lubricant. The burning that other products caused was enough to make us stop having intercourse, and now Friday night is the best night of the week!”
