The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 598

Have you ever looked an opal gemstone? They are so unique. It seems as if there is an entire separate world living within in the stone itself. It has movement and captures light in a translucent vivid way. Known as the ‘Eye Stone,’ opals are like lightening in a rainbow, flashing their brilliance even with the slightest movement. They are pleasing to the sight, a seductive stone associated with love, passion, emotion and desire. They are also considered to be an inspirational stone to artists who write, dance, sing and play music. But what has any of this to do with G.O? Well, we have reached the letter O of The ABC’s of G.O and my word choice has opal as its foundation. Yes, to me, G.O is like a brilliant opal, he is opalescent.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 571

We all know how fiery and intense G.O is both on and off the stage. His intensity is one of my very favorite facets of his mercurial and mysterious nature. It must be a Scorpio thing. For as long as I can remember and perhaps comprehend the science of astrology, I have always been fascinated by Scorpios. Maybe it is because the sign itself sits directly opposite of my own on the Western astrological chart. It does not necessarily mean we are opposite in nature but in fact share many of the same attributes. But, I am getting offtrack here with the purpose of this post! For as intense as G.O may be, he seems to be equally gentle and pliant. And when that softness shines, it is best experienced in his warm smile. In the sub-series, The ABC’s of G.O, we are at the 13th letter of the alphabet. I choose to mix it up a little for today by using the romanization of the Korean word 미소 ~~>’miso’ or, smile.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 564

Not too long ago I was commenting on how I believed that certain people possess a special light or glow about them and that, in my opinion, G.O was one of those people. It is a light that is warm, inviting, magnetic and very attractive. Once you recognize it, you always want to be around it. We are almost at the half way point in this little sub-series, The ABC’s of G.O, and it would be easy for me to use the quintessential L word to describe him because yes, he does signify love to me. Instead, I want to return to that special light idea and choose the word lucent to describe this lovely (<~~~ I snuck it in there) young man.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 531

If my little Soldier Star Calendar app is correct, I think today may be the day G.O will officially move up in rank to 병장 or, Sergeant!! I am so proud of him! Equally exciting is the fact that he now has only 200 days remaining in his military service. The excitement and anticipation are growing daily, can you feel it? He will be back before we know it. Hopefully the forthcoming new chapter in G.O’s ever-evolving career will best all previous ones with a happiness and success that knows no bounds. Hang in there, G.Oddesses, 200 days are going to fly, trust me!

Congrats to our charming Army Sergeant!

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 524

I was looking forward to the letter J because I knew the word I would be choosing would be ‘jeweled.’ The word holds two meanings for me when I think in terms of describing G.O. First, the obvious: the tasteful and attractive way in which he accessorizes with jewelry. And second, the more esoteric idea being that G.O himself is a gem ~ indescribably precious and invaluable. Corny? Perhaps. Nevertheless, it is my choice for today’s installment of The ABC’s of G.O.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 518

To me, when an artist wants to use his art to touch the deepest part of people, to make them feel something, that is an act of absolute intimacy. Now before you get all squeamish thinking this post is going to get all PG-13 or R-rated, it will not. I do not mean that kind of intimacy. Most of us are guarded in our emotions and hesitant to let people in, or let people get close. Music though has a way of circumventing those defenses. However, it usually takes a profound piece of music to accomplish it and an artist adept in interpreting such. Without an honest guide who is filled with depth and emotion, music can be come a cacophony of unorganized sound unable to connect with the listener. As you all know, I believe G.O is an honest guide. One filled with depth and emotion who is able to connect with all who will listen.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 503

I could take the easiest possible avenue here for the seventh letter of the alphabet by simply saying G is for G.O! It is perfectly logical and fitting for today’s post. There are so many possibilities: graceful, gracious, generous, gifted, gallant, and even the obvious, gorgeous. But I can go one simpler. Indeed, I want to choose a word that all others could claim is perhaps the foundation by which each found their way into the category of describing G.O. One that most likely defines him from core to surface. It is probably my favorite word to describe him and heaven knows you will easily find it in every single post I have written about him here on this blog. That word is gentle.
