    Labas Rasa, Apie kūrybą aš lyg ir nerašiau? Bet kūryba yra toks slidus dalykas. Dažnai kūrinys sutapatinamas su autorium. Ir ne visada tai būna klaida.

      Labas Rasa,
      Apie kūrybą aš lyg ir nerašiau? Bet kūryba yra toks slidus dalykas. Dažnai kūrinys sutapatinamas su autorium. Ir ne visada tai būna klaida. (Čia aš - ne apie Jūsų kūrybą).
      O dėl merginų ir vaikinų (vyrų ir moterų) skirtingo meilės/elgesio/žodžių supratimo tai taip jau yra. Jie visai kitaip supranta net rankos paspaudimą.Gydytoja teisi ir laiku atkreipė mūsų dėmesį.Todėl turim kalbėti apie neprovokavimą ne tada, kai jau atsitinka kas nors blogo, bet gerokai iš anksto.

      Taip, aš sąmoningai pacitavau bibliją.Jei viskas reliatyvu, tai ir Kristus tikriausiai nebūtų taip kalbėjęs, mokinęs...Ko jis siekė, kaip manot?
      Kalbant apie Jus, aš maniau (ir manau:), kad ir Jūs esat laiminga šeimoje ir Jums nekyla minčių ieškoti laimės dar ir kitur. Nuoširdžiai linkiu visiems, jauniems ir pagyvenusiems, kurti laimę savo šeimoje, kurstyti savo šeimos židinį.Nebijoti vykdyti prisiimtų įsipareigojimų arba įsipareigoti savo mylimam žmogui.

      Laimingai!
      Audronė

      Sveika, Audrone,

      Labai dėkoju, kad rašote, tačiau labai skaudžiai nuskambėjo žodžiai:" Tai ir
      dukrai patariu visai neskubėt ir (!) neprovokuot. " Neprovokuot. Turėjau
      kelias stovyklas su merginomis. Atvirumo laužuose mes kalbėjome apie
      baisiąją pusę. Kai kurios patyria priekabiavimą ar išprievartavimą. Ir
      nepykite, Audrone, jos nesidalino su mama, tėčiu, draugais tuo? Kodėl? Mat
      jos manė, kad tai jos išprovokavo:) Kad Jos ir tik Jos yra ir bus kaltos:)

      Ir Jūs, Audrone, kaip Biblijoje šnekate "Iš tiesų iš tiesų sakau jums"...

      O aš nieko nežinau iš tiesų:) ... Viskas reliatyvu.

      Tačiau nėra malonu, kad Jūs kaip Moteris Moters kūryboje, kuri kalba apie
      meilę įžvelgiate kažkokią provokaciją. Tiesiog daugiau kūrybos Minčių Sode
      nesiųsiu... Kam to reikia? Klausytis net iš kūrybos daromas
      interpretacijas:) O žmonėms, ar Jie - Vyrai, ar Moterys - gražių žodžių
      nebus per daug.

      Tai tiek:)

      Ačiū, Audrone, kad esate. Tikiuosi, kad Jūsų dukra Jums artima pilnai:)

      Puikios dienelės:)

      Vykstu į Mažeikius:)

        Merginos. merginos...palaukit biškutį...Nu, aš, vat, paimsiu dabar ir tuoj
        jums viską paaiškinsiu:



        · Audrone, aš žinau (jau :-DD), kad kontraceptikai tai tokie burtai,
        kurie apsaugo nuo nepageidaujamo nėštumo ir tik tiek. Jų yra įvairių rūšių:
        hormoninės tabletės ir tt...

        · Uždegimai gręsia net ir nesantykiavusiems paaugliams. Tereikia peršalti
        ir nesilaikyti higienos.

        · Kūryba tai veiksmas, kuris priartina žmogų prie Kūrėjo.

        · Seksas tai veiksmas, kuris, kaip joks kitas, priartina žmogų prie
        Žmogaus (pageidautina kitos lyties J).

        · Todėl geriausia seksu užsiiminėti kūrybinėse dirbtuvėse – tada gaunasi
        dieviškas seksas ir seksovi kūriniai.

        · Jėzus Kristus buvo hipis (plaukai, pažiūros, nihilizmas)

        · Jis buvo geras hipis – „live fast, love hard, die young“. Gyveno
        greitai, mylėjo žmones stipriai, mirė jaunas ir efektingai.

        · Vaikams geriausia augti su abiem tėvais t.y tėčiu ir mama, bet tėvams
        yra naudinga paūgėti ir su kitom mamom J). (Jeigu šeimoje viena žmona tai
        dažniausiai ji užauga egoiste!).

        · Vakar užgęso mūsų šeimos židinys L. Nusprogo vertikalios skleistinės
        pjūklinės įtampos generatorius. Aš kalbu apie televizorių. Gal kas gali
        patarti į kokius parametrus atkreipti dėmesį perkant LCD TV?

        · Vaikai, gyvenkime ir kurkime draugiškai. (cit. Katinas Leopoldas).



        Fuuu…Nu va, šiandien jau visą išmintį ištaškiau ant ekrano...Ai, gana...



        Iki šeštadienio visiems, bičiuliai!



        Albertas, palytėtas…



        P.S. Audrone, tu graži moteris! Nebijočiau Zenono, tai aš tau asistuočiau,

          Albertas kaip tikras vyras ir karžygys visada puolasi ginti silpnesniojo. Šaunuolis, tu Albertai. Žinau, kad ir tau svarbu moteriška ištikimybė :), tai tavo juokai visai aiškūs. Nepirk, Albertai, televizoriaus, jei vis dar tau rūpi meilė. Galima net ir elektros atsisakyti. Atsimenu, kaip romantiška buvo Kaukaze, kai nusitrenkėm ten trise per studentų žiemos atostogas.Tokioj kalnų trobelėj apsistoję, net ir meškas girdėjom riaumojant. O dar ten žydėjo daug mažyčių kalnų ciklamenų. Tiesa, prisimenu, tada ne visi mane suprato. T.y. vienam kaime mums pavymui tokia moteriškė paleido akmenį, matyt, man skirtą. O tokia rodos nekalta tada buvau! Toks gyvenimas...:)

                    b�ti vadinami i� did�iosios raid�s. Gal tai mano subjektyvi nuomon�, bet jie
                    nuostab�s-k�rybingi, veikiantys, s�moningi ir s�mojingi:) Taigi a� savo

                    (galima ir visas sura�yti did�iosiomis raid�mis:)), Audrone:)

                    Labos nakties:)

                    Puikios ateinan�ios dienel�s:)

                        Sveiki mielieji,

                        Tada turi būti lygybė-Vyras ir Moteris-abu skaistūs besituokdami:) (na pas
                        mano tėvus taip buvo:) Kodėl būtent Moteris turi būti skaisti? Nu,
                        neįsivaizduoju...:) Kam ta nekaltybė iki santuokinės nakties - juks visi
                        puikiai žinote, kad PIRMAS KARTAS NIEKADA BEVEIK NEBŪNA VYKĘS:), o
                        santuokinei nakčiai suteikiame tokių iliuzijų ir gaunas vėl šnipštas... (čia
                        ne asmeninė mano patirtis, o kolegos, kuris dirba su skyrybomis kadaise
                        išsakyta mintis). Mes su vyru metus draugavom, pusę metų gyvenome kartu ir
                        susituokėme tik civiline santuoka:)... Audrone, dabar jau galite mane
                        išvadinti ir paleistuve:) O visgi man patiko romane "Prarastas Don Žuano
                        dienoraštis" (kurį padovanojo vyras) - "Moters didžiausia
                        nuodėmė-vienatvė"...
                        Ir tik nesakykite, kad Moteris mažiau geidžia Vyro:) Meluosite pati sau:)
                        Erotinėje meilėje eina lygus Moters ir Vyro geismo santykis, nes kitaip tai
                        gali tapti netyčia tik santuokinė pareiga, vykdant kažkokius duotus
                        įsipareigojimus:)

                        Mano pozicija - feministiška (tačiau ne radikali). Jūsų Audrone kitokia
                        (skaistybė, šeima, įsipareigojimai:) Visgi geismas, aistra, seksas - tai
                        gamtos dalykas - ne mes juos sukurėme ir ne mums juos vertinti. Ar ne,
                        Audrone? Ar norite grįžti į inkvizicijos laikus, kai net ne Raganos buvo
                        deginamos, o tik tos, kurios vieną kitą Šventąjį atstūmė?:) MYLĖKIM ŽMONES,
                        O NE ŠNEKĖKIM, KAD MYLIM AR JUOS NUO KAŽKO BANDOM APSAUGOTI. NUO PATIES
                        SAVĘS ŽMOGAUS NEAPSAUGOSI:)

                        Dievinu laimingus žmones ir jeigu jie laimingi-man gera ir labai labai šilta
                        viduje:)

                        Puikios dienelės:)

                          Sveiki mielieji,

                          Tada turi būti lygybė-Vyras ir Moteris-abu skaistūs besituokdami:) (na pas
                          mano tėvus taip buvo:) Kodėl būtent Moteris turi būti skaisti? Nu,
                          neįsivaizduoju...:) Kam ta nekaltybė iki santuokinės nakties - juks visi
                          puikiai žinote, kad PIRMAS KARTAS NIEKADA BEVEIK NEBŪNA VYKĘS:), o
                          santuokinei nakčiai suteikiame tokių iliuzijų ir gaunas vėl šnipštas... (čia
                          ne asmeninė mano patirtis, o kolegos, kuris dirba su skyrybomis kadaise
                          išsakyta mintis). Mes su vyru metus draugavom, pusę metų gyvenome kartu ir
                          susituokėme tik civiline santuoka:)... Audrone, dabar jau galite mane
                          išvadinti ir paleistuve:) O visgi man patiko romane "Prarastas Don Žuano
                          dienoraštis" (kurį padovanojo vyras) - "Moters didžiausia
                          nuodėmė-vienatvė"...
                          Ir tik nesakykite, kad Moteris mažiau geidžia Vyro:) Meluosite pati sau:)
                          Erotinėje meilėje eina lygus Moters ir Vyro geismo santykis, nes kitaip tai
                          gali tapti netyčia tik santuokinė pareiga, vykdant kažkokius duotus
                          įsipareigojimus:)

                          Mano pozicija - feministiška (tačiau ne radikali). Jūsų Audrone kitokia
                          (skaistybė, šeima, įsipareigojimai:) Visgi geismas, aistra, seksas - tai
                          gamtos dalykas - ne mes juos sukurėme ir ne mums juos vertinti. Ar ne,
                          Audrone? Ar norite grįžti į inkvizicijos laikus, kai net ne Raganos buvo
                          deginamos, o tik tos, kurios vieną kitą Šventąjį atstūmė?:) MYLĖKIM ŽMONES,
                          O NE ŠNEKĖKIM, KAD MYLIM AR JUOS NUO KAŽKO BANDOM APSAUGOTI. NUO PATIES
                          SAVĘS ŽMOGAUS NEAPSAUGOSI:)

                          Dievinu laimingus žmones ir jeigu jie laimingi-man gera ir labai labai šilta
                          viduje:)

                          Puikios dienelės:)

                            Sveiki mielieji,

                            Tada turi būti lygybė-Vyras ir Moteris-abu skaistūs besituokdami:) (na pas
                            mano tėvus taip buvo:) Kodėl būtent Moteris turi būti skaisti? Nu,
                            neįsivaizduoju...:) Kam ta nekaltybė iki santuokinės nakties - juks visi
                            puikiai žinote, kad PIRMAS KARTAS NIEKADA BEVEIK NEBŪNA VYKĘS:), o
                            santuokinei nakčiai suteikiame tokių iliuzijų ir gaunas vėl šnipštas... (čia
                            ne asmeninė mano patirtis, o kolegos, kuris dirba su skyrybomis kadaise
                            išsakyta mintis). Mes su vyru metus draugavom, pusę metų gyvenome kartu ir
                            susituokėme tik civiline santuoka:)... Audrone, dabar jau galite mane
                            išvadinti ir paleistuve:) O visgi man patiko romane "Prarastas Don Žuano
                            dienoraštis" (kurį padovanojo vyras) - "Moters didžiausia
                            nuodėmė-vienatvė"...
                            Ir tik nesakykite, kad Moteris mažiau geidžia Vyro:) Meluosite pati sau:)
                            Erotinėje meilėje eina lygus Moters ir Vyro geismo santykis, nes kitaip tai
                            gali tapti netyčia tik santuokinė pareiga, vykdant kažkokius duotus
                            įsipareigojimus:)

                            Mano pozicija - feministiška (tačiau ne radikali). Jūsų Audrone kitokia
                            (skaistybė, šeima, įsipareigojimai:) Visgi geismas, aistra, seksas - tai
                            gamtos dalykas - ne mes juos sukurėme ir ne mums juos vertinti. Ar ne,
                            Audrone? Ar norite grįžti į inkvizicijos laikus, kai net ne Raganos buvo
                            deginamos, o tik tos, kurios vieną kitą Šventąjį atstūmė?:) MYLĖKIM ŽMONES,
                            O NE ŠNEKĖKIM, KAD MYLIM AR JUOS NUO KAŽKO BANDOM APSAUGOTI. NUO PATIES
                            SAVĘS ŽMOGAUS NEAPSAUGOSI:)

                            Dievinu laimingus žmones ir jeigu jie laimingi-man gera ir labai labai šilta
                            viduje:)

                            Puikios dienelės:)
