For starters. More to come!
Mellowing into what I hope will turn out to be middle-age, and seemingly finding time to relax and not worry about what comes next. After too many years of doing what I thought I should, I've decided to do more of what I want. Presently, that includes exploring the Bi/Poly/BDSM lifestyle to a very full extent. Life is fun! If one can really plan for the future, but live for the day, I'd enjoy making that a reality.

I was having a conversation with someone last week, someone who has been involved in public play spaces for quite a while. They spoke of how the Kink community really is just that, a community, with all the joy and energy and fulfillment which comes with it. But there was something else - the diversity issue. Seems like the community is breaking down into smaller factions. I thought these always existed, but as a group, we would all come together for the common cause. People will always be pe... read moreTue, May 13, 2008 - 9:23 PM permalink - 0 comments
It's been about 5 weeks since I first worked up enough courage to attened my first munch. Don't remember why I was so nervous - I mean' they're just people, right? Oh, yeah, that IS the reason! Lack of self-confidence can be very powerful... So, I've started to make a few friends. I like them. They're smart. Good sense of humour. They're "clever" as my daughter might say. What I think I'm seeing is that they are honest, blunt sometimes, but one knows where one stands with them. Some are gent... read moreMon, April 7, 2008 - 5:18 PM permalink - 0 comments
"Being" seems to be so much easier than "Becoming" - just as in the journey is usually so much more difficult, or fun, or exciting, than the destination. Is it part of human nature to crave the challenge of change more than having things finalized? The old saying "it's the going, not the getting there" seems more oft than not to be true. It's not that I always look forward to change. Au contraire, I like things to be stable, a way I can depend on. I guess that's security. But of late, I've fo... read moreFri, March 21, 2008 - 11:41 AM permalink - 0 comments
Never under estimate the power of the love someone has for you, and the faith that is earned by a lifetime of trust. Why is it so often that we come to expect the worst, when all that is needed is belief in the one you love. Don't fight it so much - let go, and accept love. It doesn't hurt,... no, really!

So, in looking back on 2007, I find a year of maybes, almosts, and just-abouts. Some things I really wish I had done better - and more than a few that I wish I hadn't done at all. Regrets? Not exactly, if I learn from them. Started to get to know 3 or 4 very exciting, interesting, beautiful people... people I can call "friend", in a life that hasn't made a new friend in over 5 years. Remembered that I can have a life without constantly putting false restrictions on myself. Knowing I don't rea... read moreSat, January 5, 2008 - 4:17 PM permalink - 0 comments
