Tranquility is inner power

She is wise who owns the day

Resisting occupation of fret

Be a hostess for angst, allow it space

Letting it pass through

Ignoring brings congestion

And makes

an awful stench

What you have done is good enough

End the day knowing it is complete

Begin anew tomorrow

We flounder and fall 

But doubt is not your friend

Don't let it make a home

of your mind


Forget them

A rising spirit within won't be

entangled with nonsense

Today is too dear

Full of hope and invitations

Waste not a moment

on yesterday's doubts

Be clear. Own it.

When life's currency dictates how often you spend with what you love.


I feel like I went shopping found the perfect pair of Jean's with a cute top (that I don't have to iron), a rare puka shell necklace ( because mine has been lost for 20 years) and now because I don't have enough currency I have to put it all back. 


Disappointed? Maybe

Frustrated? Ah huh

Angry? Yes!


Time is something you can't earn more of but only invest in. Right now, I feel a little selfish and just want more! 


Plodding on with adulting . . . 


Defeated? Yes

Thank you to my dear for being so creative and starting this challenge!



Flirtatious, fun, hot and exhilarating!

The energy of this piece is phenomenal and never fails to lift my mood. 


Rita Moreno brings it home but the entire choreography is exciting to watch. 



Exquisite on so many levels! Subtleties of a D/s to be sure!

What If

is lurking


What if keeps coming back



pulling into shame

What if is like a monster 

and I'm the Frankenstein

stitching pieces

of my failures

to create the dreaded IF

If only is the sidekick

they work hand in hand



till mood presses down


I see a way

to open up the drain

my will, my mind

a weapon over still

to see the parts intent of heart



the past is past

and now is now

truth makes the cut

former is non

now is mine

future yet to fill


What if, my goals are met

What if, I stay connected

What if, I am enough

If only 

I believe

the beauty 

what if

can be reborn

monster of mine

mastered with mind



the prize takes its place



like steeping tea

in a bath of water

meant just for me

Many are the ways

this be but one breath

 a drop




he reveals his heart to me

hesitant, vulnerable

holding the key 

Oh! If he only knew

 I want to dance

and spin with gladness!

for this is the succulent cream


the energy that activates me

to see and feel

 tiny tender things of him

brings me to 

cocooned submission

not a marching obedience

but heartfelt surrender

Dreamwork with a twist.



Dresses for Sun





















Pick of the day.


A splash of fun with boho feel. I like the American Quilt vibe speaking of unity and diversity. Instead of tea time in the parlor, it's  iced coffee in the park with cool music. 


 What do you think a sundress will look like in 2060!

Thank you to Sensual Dom, fun stuff.

No image came close to the heart felt meaning so I am sharing the close second.

Add sweat, muscle fatigue and this is how I feel: Delirious, hungry, exposed and uncaged desires being tamed to please.

Memories are fickle things. One day they want to hide and another they refuse to leave. I hear you talking of matted thoughts mingled with struggle. If you have blood in your veins your likely to have seasons of turmoil. Those times when memories sting like thorns digging at your heart and mind. When it's time to cushion the past with acceptance - it hurts. And then it hurts less. Moving on can't be rushed but shouldn't be avoided. I thought of you when I wrote this. Your not alone. 


When your mind is tangled

With thoughts of past

Push forward with hope

Pull back to bleed

Memories like thistle

Need pages for pressing

Give honor

Say goodbye

Keep seeding

 and springing

Your future bright

 Mind clear

The reward!

Cool view, endorphin buddies and sense of accomplishment.
