When we discuss romance, it can mean different things to different people. Romance can have so many different meanings to each individual. Attraction is apart of romance but it isn’t the key player. You can be attracted to someone but it won’t last forever if you are not pulled in by their very being, their essence, their soul. Behavior, mannerisms, and the ability to change with each other. Everyone changes. A very simple but explicit fact of life and having someone who is willing to change and grow with you is a key factor in any lasting romance.
When we discuss romance and attraction, what comes to your mind at first? Is it how someone looks? Features? Personality? Attire? Is it how your own body reacts? Is it the constant need or pull towards a certain emotion? Trying to figure out these essential points can be difficult for some and hard for others. I myself, find it to be a mixture of everything. If you can’t maintain my focus, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. How you react to not having my attention can also be a romantic gesture. How I react to not having the attention could be a romantic gesture.
I find romance in small things more than in bigger gestures, but that is because life is made up of the small things. Asking me if I need anything when they are walking into another room shows they are thinking of you. Cleaning up something so that I personally do not have to do it, is romantic. Anticipating what I am going to want or do, and doing it before I have to is romantic. That isn’t to say surprises and gifts are not romantic, they are, but they are not expected or required by me to be romantic. If you think about it, a partner usually gives you gifts when they have been bad or inappropriate to make up for it. That does not always mean that giving a gift is romantic.
When I talk about romance pertaining to my books, yes there are sexual and physical parts but there is so much more in the subtext. The things that happen in the book bring the characters more together and have them find a mutual understanding. That is romance. The ability to always think of the other person regardless of ones-self.
Apollodorus of Phalerum once stated: “Before that I led a perfectly haphazard existence, and though I thought that I was getting somewhere, I was in fact the most wretched creature imaginable – quite as wretched as you are now – and believed that the pursuit of wisdom was the last thing a man should devote himself to.” (Plato, The Symposium, pg. 34). This can sum up a lot of my younger years in life, as I am sure there are more people this can relate to as well.
My name is Georgia Grace and I am a writer. Mostly consisting of romance, all types, but I also like to extend my work into many areas. You can get a taste of that within my blogs and short stories on this fabulous site.
As a writer, I am always researching and being creative. Writing is how I express my creativity, along with some other random outlets, but as adults we just go through life. One day at a time, going in circles and never truly getting anywhere except to the next second, minute, hour, day or moment. In todays society we are always pushing to progress, but it seems our history has been swept aside so easily that it becomes nothing more than a mistake at times. However, what we fail to understand, as a society, is that history creates wisdom. Within those moments in time, our history, our flaws, our triumphs, our inevitable decisions are how we can create different outcomes in the future. It is within the wisdom of our mistakes and haphazard that we grow. Focusing on how to get things right or wrong or perfect, can also create wretched monsters of us as well.
I am a writer, yes, but I am so much more. I am a mother, wife, rescuer, sinner and saint and through life’s ups and downs I am gainfully employed. I have extensive education, both in the classroom and in life. Some of those degrees consist of CPC, CNA, CSFS, a Bachelors in HIM and an Associates in Applied Science. I have experience as a veterinary technician, management, the medical field, sales, retail and so many other adventures that it would take too long to explain on here. Plus, I would probably bore you with details. At a certain point either people are impressed, or they stop listening, so I will just save us the trouble and move on…
In order to get to know me, you would have to understand me. One way to do that is to delve deeper into my essence and beliefs as a person. This can be found in my writings within this platform. I plan to post blogs and short stories while I am a part of this fantastic group of writers and I hope that you will enjoy some of my wisdom and passion, as I share it with you. If you feel that my style is one you enjoy, keep a look out for my book, soon to be published, in an attached link when I have one.
Other than that, happy reading and remember, "You Can’t Have History Without A Little Story In It."
