Brooklyn’s Five Muses

As a relatively long-time resident I’m occasionally perturbed by both how little people understand Brooklyn and how much residents of other Burroughs – Yes, I’m talking to you, Manhattanites – misunderstand my adopted home.

Five Muses

Thankfully, David Miller has provided us, with the welcome help of Cacia Zoo, Glass Olive, Sierra Mckenzie, Kacie Marie, Victoria Elle, with an enchanting video showcase of the quirkiness, eclecticism, romance, and hidden beauty of Brooklyn.

It Sure Wasn’t Love

Vomiting Hearts
Spit or Swallow … Or Puke – It Sure Wasn’t Love

It’s “The Morning After.” In this case it’s the morning after Valentine’s Day, which means many, many people will be experiencing certain forms of emotional hangover, instead of- or in addition to their physical ones.

Of course, on a morning when society pedantically instructs us that on this one “special” day staggering though one’s “Walk of Shame” is less shameful and less degrading than not being in a position to do so, this must be fully expected.

I’m sure many women – and not a few men – are busy vomiting the bad taste left from this celebration of “romance” out of their mouths. 😉

A Muslim Valentine

While it true that Muslims are forbidden from celebrating Valentine’s Day because they are forbidden from celebrating any and all Infidel holidays, one has to expect that many of them do so anyway.

Of course, Muslims being Muslims and not wanting to behave too much like the Infidels, they put their own “special” spin on it…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Again, like people, romance tends to be brief among Muslims and relationships do not always proceed happily. This is neither more or less common among Muslims than it is amongst Infidels. The Muslims just have some superficial cultural differences in the details…

Of Course Romance Fades

Yet, like almost all religions, Islam places a premium on families so many Muslims manage to keep their relationships going…

But A Solid Relationship Will Last

Of course, keeping Muslim relationships going strong is a matter of communication, compromise, and the occasionally “rough and tumble” give and take between husband and wife. 😉

Not Seeking Closure

Romantic, Sexy Ginger
Not Seeking Closure

Despite what psychologists, psychiatrists, professional agony aunts, and all those who parrot their advice say, sometimes not seeking closure is the finest option. 😉
