Open your mouth only if what you are going to say is more beautiful than the silence

A week before my birthday I had an interesting email from Sir. He intimated that it was his birthday and asked me to write a scene for his celebration. He would be free mid-week, and I had 24 hours to come up with something great for him. How could I come up with something to … Continue reading Open your mouth only if what you are going to say is more beautiful than the silence

Trying new things is the only way you’re going to learn what your new passions are

There I was, kneeling, head bowed with my eyes gently closed, a bottle of lube in my hand, waiting... P was away for six nights, working with a friend, and I had made him aware that he would be welcome to visit. N, Thank you, I will use you on Monday night. Sir I was … Continue reading Trying new things is the only way you’re going to learn what your new passions are

The amount of good luck coming your way depends on your willingness to act.

There was no doubt that luck had played an important part in my task completion. There had been no lack of effort from me, but I had been drawing blanks left, right and centre. So when I spotted the opportunity to kiss a woman I took it! It wasn't the most planned and premeditated move, … Continue reading The amount of good luck coming your way depends on your willingness to act.

I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious

I don't remember a time when I wasn't plagued by a thirst for knowledge. I have never seen this as a negative, it is a good thing to be constantly learning after all. In fact, my tutor recently complimented me on my "intellectual curiosity". I have occasionally been called nosy, but the questions come from … Continue reading I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious

She didn’t need to be saved. She needed to be found and appreciated for exactly who she was.

"It's simple, be genuine and try hard." He said "You can have this, but you must show me you want it" As I made my way home after the first time I met him, his words floated around in my head. Different conversations melting into each other, as sensations from our evening together danced over my … Continue reading She didn’t need to be saved.

He walked into my heart like he always belonged there, took down my walls and lit my soul on fire

I still think about the day when we first met. Part of me wants to keep it private, though I believe that is mainly because trying to put words to that evening feels a little big... The waiting was almost over. I had been thoroughly enjoying my tasks while growing in confidence and learning about … Continue reading He walked into my heart like he always belonged there, took down my walls and lit my soul on fire

Personal growth is not about learning new information but unlearning old limits

A couple of weeks ago I was picking up my children from school and heard one dad say to his three-year old daughter "Don't try to do that, you can't do that yet so don't even try." She had asked for him to help her on the monkey bars after seeing her friend (my youngest) … Continue reading Personal growth is not about learning new information but unlearning old limits

If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you

During those early conversations he would draw information out of me, a constant stream of little jobs for me to do. A picture here, an answer there, now two pictures each day with different writings, and then a video. Ok, ok...pictures were hard enough (confronting the image of myself before I hit send) but videos.... … Continue reading If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you
