Therefore, after 20 years of Sonshi.com, it is time to move on to a more direct path in the form of a daily blog called Genius of Love. I hope you can continue to join me.
Inspired by the catchy and nostalgic 1981 song Genius of Love by the Tom Tom Club (written by geniuses of love Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, former members of the band Talking Heads), this Genius of Love blog was started thanks to seven of the song's ideas:
- What you gonna do when you get out of jail?
I'm gonna have some fun.
What do you consider fun?
Fun, natural fun.
Even in great success, too many people are nonetheless trapped like a prisoner. They end up being obligated to do things they don't like anymore. It's no longer fun. With this Genius of Love blog, I am focusing on a subject closer to my heart. I'm grateful to be able to do it.
- I'm in heaven.
With my boyfriend, my laughing boyfriend.
A life is measured by how many times you genuinely laugh out loud and feel out of this world with those you love.
- There's no beginning and there is no end.
Time isn't present in that dimension.
Being timeless is letting go. But people don't want to let go. They want to continue to control and stay in power and try to be admirable for all the wrong reasons -- a common habit of common people.
- He'll take my arm.
When we're walkin', rolling and rocking.
Skylight Paths, the publisher of our Art of War book, has a motto: "Walking Together, Finding the Way." Together we can face challenges, gain wisdom, and experience happiness.
- Feels like I'm dreaming, but I'm not sleeping.
- Who needs to think when your feet just go?
This might seem counter to Sun Tzu but it's not. Thinking is a beginner's trait. You think a lot when you first drive a car. But when you've been driving for many decades you might find yourself at your destination and not know how you got there. Thus, to not think isn't only a trait of someone of wisdom but of someone who rather experience life as is. No time wasted on complaining but time is spent on understanding, fixing, and overall doing.
- Please remind him, unhappy boyfriend.
Well he's the genius of love.
He's got a greater depth of feeling.
Life isn't always fun and happiness. There will be downer days. These days remind us we are human with feelings. But it is during those times you must remind yourself who you are as a person. If you stay true to who you are, you have that as a foundation that is stronger than any problem you will face in your life.
The most refined person isn't a stoic, strategic machine but one who is humane, who can choose to lose yet still win.
I hope you enjoy reading the Genius of Love blog each day. Like anything I do in life, this Genius of Love blog is a labor of love. ❤️
