Condoleezza Rice, the first black woman to serve as Secretary of State has been busy talking tough to Russia. I've read that her speech on the 18th was stern and powerful. I'm not surprised. Condoleezza has always seemed like a strong woman to me. I mean, you have to be strong and well rounded to deal with the pressures of working so close to a moron like Bush. Man, she has a hard job. She is much more experienced to be VP than Sarah Palin. But there is that issue of her being black. Conservatives might not have gone for that. It also would have strengthened the "more of the same" theme.
Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again. *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels
