|Lady as her mysterious self|
"If this woman spoke to my manhood, or my pride would my reply come from a sense of responsibility or the sweet weakness of surrender?" is a fundamental question to probe the spirit of a man and gauge the shields of a man for strength and weaknesses.
Shields are important to a warrior. How they are used to taste the waters of women's sexual powers is the spiritual nature of attraction and impeccability. The underside of manhood is not only dark and mysterious in lust, but a thrust into the shadows of what is not known by men who were never initiated by men who were the Elders from boy to manhood in the deepest sense of being.
This is all hard to grasp, but essential to know. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 6.14.16
