I was reading the other day an article written on Chris Carrabba. He is the lead singer in the band Dashboard Confessional (see My new love affair post). It talked about his almost unnerving way of staring at a particular audience member during a concert. He said that when he finds someone that is really connecting to the music that he will connect with them and have "eye sex".
Yes, there is a picture...dreamy. Mmm very dreamy. Alright alright I will stop drooling. But back to eye sex. So the phrase has made me think. Usually there is such a connotation of meaning connected to the word sex, that many people might be turned off by that phrase, eye sex. Yet, I really like it. I really like the idea of being very intimate and connected to someone through your eyes. And have it not only be beautiful but perfectly appropriate.
On a side note, but a connected note, The other day my roomate was eating an avocado. She stopped right in the middle, and got the most delighted expression on her face. She then proceeded to make satisfactory noises about how beautiful the avocado was. The color. The curve of it's shape. The smell. And I told her she was making love to her avo. She heartily agreed. We then made jokes about french-kissing your food of course. And the conversation has stuck with me for a couple of days. I like the idea of me making love to my food, of really, completely being swallowed up in the entire experience of eating. Taste, smell, curves etc. and acknowledging how much I love it. I feel like I am really in the moment. Really experiencing all of that moment.
Here is one more picture if anyone wants to drool.
