Bull By The Horns

When I do my Motivational Mondays, I often have other things pop-up in my different quotation feeds that I subscribe to on several different social media sites.  Some of the funny ones are the ones related to my astrological sign – Taurus. You see, people have told me since I was young (upon hearing I…

Words That Make Me Feel

Words that express how I feel better than me….   There are some people in your life that just feel like home.  Home feels familiar. Home feels comfortable.  Home feels like a place where you can be you – it is safe – it is good – it is true. I am blessed to feel…

Being Seen

“I know who you are – I see you.” Powerful words. For some, they may be complexed. But for someone who does their best to hide feelings – and keep myself a half step away from people figuring me out – it’s a big deal. I see you. Fuck. And yay! And fuck again. To…

The Old Me.

I miss the old me. The one who really didn’t care what anyone thought. The one who exuded so much self confidence that she wore it like shield. The one who knew who she was or, at least, how to balance who everyone needed to be. She was so many things. She was skinny. She…

Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh, My!

I had a dream last night that I was going into a park known for having animals you can adopt roaming around.  A man would bring in whatever animals needed to be adopted and let people interact with them as they sat in the park reading or whatever.  I walked to the park entrance where…

Treading Water

I feel like I should write something.  So I’ll start with a great horned owl swimming:     This week has been a fun emotional one for me. Frustration, sadness, loneliness….it seems like for every good moment there have been several emotional ones in the other direction. Maybe the video is a good way of…

Put On Your Oxygen Mask First

I curate an erotic art gallery at a local alternative lifestyle club (aka swingers club).  I have always loved art – making it through photography and other medium when I was younger – and looking at it.  When I had a chance to get involved, I took it.  Then like anything else, no good deed…

Recharging and The Ocean

A few years ago, G and I vowed to take more time away alone.  Until that point, we were maybe getting one weekend away a year with more time being spent away with other partners than with each other.  It was fine for a while – but truly started taking a toll on things as…

Right Time, Right Message

Several years ago, a friend of mine convinced me to take a tantra class with her.  It was taught by her friend who also happened to be someone I knew from the kink community.  I was curious – so I took the class.  And it was great – eye opening – making me aware of…

Un-Slumping

Yesterday, I realized I had spent my week longing for the things that “would make things better for me” or “make me feel better” – less stressed, happier, content, get my energy back to where I wanted it to be.  The stress of the week  – the energy being expended out vs taken in –…
