Have you ever noticed how
the need to be loved, transcends all barriers of
race, social status etc.? Why is that?
Did you ever stop to think about it?
I hadn't until the year 2001 when a rapid fire
chain of events in my life left me shell shocked,
uncertain yet hopeful.
Take a walk with me through a 2 year span of
self-discovery, search for love and spiritual
awakening...you'll be glad you did.
MANTRA FOR 2004

Meet Divine, female, thirty-seven, slap happy,
young at heart, self-employed, online newbie, living in New York.
She is fresh out of a long-term relationship and has completed the
two-year mandatory wound licking; I hate men, mourning period.
Unfortunately for Divine, someone neglected to inform her that dating
has been upgraded to new millennium level. But maybe she
shouldn't worry...hemlines aren't the only things that went up. Her stock has also gone

Divine's journey of self-discovery is an often humorous,
sometimes unbelievable and at times achingly sad recounting of
her shell shock up re-entering the world of dating after a
fourteen (14) year absence. Along this journey she
discovers online dating websites, IM's and chat rooms. As she writes in her journal, she reveals
her bewilderment as she tries to navigate the new "dating
rules" that allow twenty year olds to feel emboldened
enough to approach thirty-seven year olds, with the line
"age is just a number."
The dilemma then becomes, her needs versus her values and how
far she will push the line before it snaps…or she breaks.
with Divine as she meets the good, the bad, the ugly, the
mentally challenged, the financially deficient, the
spiritually inconsistent, the freaky, the delusional, the
lonely and more…
