Pointless taboos

I just got a text from my husband.  This man is 41 years old and still seems to be incapable of using the word ‘sex’.  How can this be possible?  It got me thinking about how many people in our society who have issues talking or even thinking about everyday things.  Take masturbation, for example, […]

Prioritising the little things

The little things have always been the most important in my world.  Those smiles that make your heart melt, those words that come out of nowhere and mean everything, that laugh that creeps up on you unexpectedly and those people who effortlessly make the bad things go away.  We are all surrounded by the positive […]

Ex, text and sex cycle

Are endings ever truly real endings?  Do people ever really leave your life forever?  In my life there seems to be some kind of cycle where, seemingly out of the blue, a whole bunch of people will just pop back into my world for no apparent reason.  The obvious exception would be people who have […]

Switching the world off

I have often found myself, over the years, becoming quite reclusive during times of emotional turmoil.  I wouldn’t ever say that I’m much of a social butterfly or that I am ever extroverted in any way, just that during those times I push it all away and try to stop the noise.  The noise is […]

The insecurity trap

I saw a quote on my facebook wall yesterday and immediately shared it, on the poignancy of the sentiment made: “Beginnings are usually scary and endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts.” – Sandra Bullock To be honest, it did kinda take me aback that it was a quote from my Dad’s […]

Instinct versus logic

I know I need to write, to get some of these feelings out, but I’m not entirely sure where these ramblings are going to take me today.  Lying here, listening to my favourite Walt Disney World online radio station (srsounds.com – if you love Disney then you’ll love this station!), I realise how sad I […]

Unknown dimensions

Ever since I’ve been exploring things with The Doctor, I have continually been surprised at myself and my ability to dominate in an effective manner.  From being physically ill at the prospect of what I thought domination was, to learning that it’s something that’s instinctively inside of me.  There are elements of it that I […]
