Creating Fresh Romance

My eyes absorbed the morning.

  • Sky the royal blue of a perfectly cut blue sapphire;
  • Air filled with tiny, glittering ice diamonds;
  • Water of Lake Tahoe sparkling with thousands of mirrors;
  • Snow below “my” chairlift the fluffiest powder.

I love to snow ski and days like this are the exception. Yesterday’s snow started early. Sometime during the night the storm exhausted its supply of snow and the clouds disappeared. This morning was heavenly.

Coming over the rise, I prepared to disembark. Ski tips up (as instructed). Double check gloves, hat and poles.

Scanning the landing zone – oh horrors! Obviously I wasn’t the first skier of the morning. A herd of buffalo must have already ridden this lift.

Years of practice met the deep gouges left by previous riders. My skis followed their divergent ruts.

Romance can experience something similar.

Your relationship is gliding along in a beautiful place. You’re fascinated with the idea of romancing your sweetheart. You want to create a Romantic Interlude to capture her/his imagination. As you consider how to romance him/her, you find yourself repeating an experience you’ve frequently created before. The magic of the moment is clouded by the ruts of repeated dull ideas.

Don’t be discouraged.

You want to create a fresh Romantic Interlude. That by itself puts you above the average bear. Even if you’ve just taken a spill in your pursuit of romantic magic, you can get out of the routine romantic rut. Simply devote a little time exploring different ideas, ideas from friends or magazines or the web. Make plans to try something unfamiliar to you.

Next trip up the lift I was prepared for the ruts. This time I glided over them, adjusted my straps and relished the quiet thrill shushing down the slopes.

Be aware of and work your way out of the routine romantic rut. It’ll help keep your Romance Alive. Robert
