We have strict rules about O’s for me. Permission first. I guess I should say, a strict rule. That’s it, that’s the rule.
For 5 years in this D/sFLR, I’ve actually done really well and haven’t screwed up yet. Yes, she’s been known to force the issue when she feels like it and override my not letting things get too far, taking it from me, as it were. But just flat out getting it wrong? I’ve always been pretty proud about not crossing the proverbial line in the sand.

In a lot of ways, 2021 was pretty awful. Everyone that I know lost someone to Covid. Life as we’ve always known it seems to have been permanently changed.

Looking back over the past 6+ years, you’d think that most popular posts would be somewhat evenly spread over the time. Nope.

It’s the end of the year and most of us are crazy busy–and sometimes just feeling a little crazy.

“Video game or board game?”

It’s bizarre to look back at the time with This Thing We Do (TTWD). It’s been a handful of years now (my own 7r Twitter-versary came up) and I was going back through our posts and journals to each other. But also, it’s been about changing as we go forward.

Why do secrets draw us in so much? There’s this sense that we don’t know a person unless we know their secrets.

What is my favorite city? There are so many places that I love. I started thinking about NYC and London where we’ve seen such amazing theatre.

I had absolutely no idea what to write about epiphany, so, being Charmer, I went looking for a quote and found this:

“I had the epiphany that laughter was light, and light was laughter, and that this was the secret of the universe.”Donna Tartt
“I could do better than that,” he said as a contestant was being ridiculed by a chef for their raw chicken on the show they were watching.

I have a lot of regrets. Didn’t expect that from Charmer, did you?

I have no idea what the real world is. Yes, we all have to deal with jobs and traffic and taxes and such, but I don’t know if that is really what the real world is about.

It was date night and he had chosen a movie. She always loved going to the movies, especially the new theatre that had booze and unlimited popcorn with recliners.

Our blog is almost exactly 6 1/2 years old. It’s been a journey of D/s and photography with a lot of laughter and games thrown in the mix.

I don’t do “ambition” well. Somewhere in my brain, ambition got connected with being obsessed with money and careers. Yes, I know, those aren’t the only options, but it is what it is.

Charmer likes to push boundaries, heck, we both do. I think little nudges in new directions tend to add up to big nudges that introduce new ideas, new things to think about, new experiences.
We’ve added Boot Camp weekends to the mix of late – we do them when it strikes Charmer’s fancy, no real schedule- but it has lately been running Friday-Monday on choice weekends.

Why do I even keep writing in this thing? Nothing really different happens to me each day. Work, home, maybe a little socializing with friends and some family stuff.
I’ll give it one more month. Then I’m going to spend the time watching re-runs. It wouldn’t be any different.

We have a lot of stuff. Slowly the last few years we’ve been cleaning out, but there is still too much.

I crave silence in life. I was always the kid who had to have quiet to study. If I’m reading, I don’t want music in the background. When I work or write, I rarely am listening to anything.
