UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IN SOUTH BEACH
 
BYDAVID ARTHUR WALTERSJuly 21, 2013MIAMI BEACHUnconditional Love is the way to go in South Beach.Of course there are all sorts of love, but I am referring to sexual love and so-calledPlatonic or friendly love. They may occur together between lovers but we knowwhich one has priority, at least until lovers are ready to drop dead.
“Can’t we just be friends?” in these parts would be greeted with, “What planetare you from?”
 Being loved in return for love is a condition nearly impossible to obtain in thissunny resort. But one can be quite happy with unrequited love. After all, whomdo we really love when we are
in love
but with the very source of charity or

, our own dear self? If we really want to be charitable, there should be nostrings attached. Let us not prostitute our dear selves!People often complain that South Beach friends are fair weather friends, or justfickle friends who abandon them without reason. What is not to like about that?An Unconditional Lover will no doubt be pleased that he is not displeased by theirabandonment, thus proving that his love is genuine, at least for his dear self. If he
is hurt, he should ask, “Why do I want to feel hurt by this? After all, I am the best
of all lovers, an Unconditional L
over!”
The more generously we love, the better off we are. Of course we may be hatedby needy people who resent our generosity because they believe it degradesthem, but unconditional love does not require appreciation at all. Indeed,anything short of physical abuse would serve to reinforce the stature of anUnconditional Lover.Best of all, we do not need property to be generous with affection, advice,encouragement, and active assistance with troublesome situations.Last evening I attended a fashion event sponsored by What Women Want at theNikki Beach Club. I intended to see what women really wanted and to possiblywrite a review about it. I got my complimentary glass of champagne andconsidered a sign advertising a bottle of Russian Standard Brand Vodka for $300.I recalled that the robust vodka brand was being concealed in fancy mixed drinksat the main Mercedes Benz swimwear event, over at the Raleigh Hotel. I hadencountered a small crew of professional freeloaders there the night before. I joined them for a while. They thought I was a fool for tipping the prettybartenders. They scooted off to the W Hotel for free food. I went home andawoke with a hangover, but there was no love lost over the headache. I hadalready received an invitation to the Nikki Beach Club, so there I went.I examined the bikinis at the Nikki with a critical eye. I concluded there was notmuch to them, really, for the difference between brands, with two stringyexceptions, was rather slight. Of course any woman who knows about such scanty

little things would beg to differ, and I love them even though they might call mean idiot or worse.The slender young models were beautiful, but there was not much formaldifference between their bodies that I could tell, as if they were stamped fromdifferent shades of dough with the same cookie cutter, and the fact that therewere so many of them in one place prevented me from being interested in mostof them. In fact, recall only one of them, and that because she kept reachingbehind her and fingering the strap in the crevice of her perfectly shaped buttocks,as if the strap were irritating her. That does not diminish my secret unconditionallove for the only lovely model I remember. After all, grace is in innocence.It is said that beauty is skin deep or superficial, and that what really counts is theinside of a person, but I am not attracted to flesh and bone, to the kidneys, liver,heart, lungs and so on exposed in operating rooms. Overall, the bikini experiencedid remind me that physical beauty is the lowest type of beauty, yet that is basedon the highest beauty inside, derived from the One we would unite with and inwhose image we are purportedly created. In the interim we are advised to loveourselves in each other.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall….
 There was an all-purpose, black-and-white checkered swim scarf on sale on theMontce Swim table for $55. Drape it over your head and face to avoid beingwhipped by the Taliban or to rob a bank. Wrap it around your neck or bust orwaist or whatever and look cool. I thought the scarf was hot, as Paris Hilton likedto say when she was the hot thing around town, so I considered getting one forAliz until I remembered my scanty budget and threadbare wardrobe and the factthat she already has dozens of more expensive scarves in storage.My eye was attracted by a table of expensive, conservative jewelry from Paris onthe Violet & Grace table. The lovely ladies attending it were apparently deceivedby my only expensive shirt. They wanted me to buy some jewelry on the spot, orcome over to the Shore Club on the morrow to make a purchase. After apublisher falls in love with my work, I shall indeed buy lots of that kind of jewelryfor women whom I shall love so unconditionally that I do not have to lay a hand
