I don't really have the brain to go back and respond to all of your wonderful comments but I just wanted to say thank you for being so good to me, buys. I appreciate it more than I can say.

So we've confessed, we've talked about what our kinks are,, and now I want to talk about something else.

A thread in kink in general is intimacy. Part of what you're doing is bringing you and your partner(s) closer together, binding yourselves to one another, closing the gap between you and bringing you as close as you can.

Or that''s the idea.

But other people do other things that are intimate, other people have different ways of being close to one another.

I tell stories. I want to tell them for a living but for now I tell them to friends and passers by on the internet. I consider this an intimate act. I consider it opening myself up and letting people meet me.. I am not very good at being a sociable person but I use my stories as a tool to get to know people and for them to get to know me.

<[personal profile] avia can vouch for this.

My partner and I will talk sometimes. It wont be intentional but we will get on a subject that needs to be spoken of.. We will talk for hours, We will talk and talk about all manner of subjects, going between silly and serious and back again. We call it therapy because, in the end we've gotten a lot off our chests.

I consider that intimate.

I consider hair brushing intimate, listening to music together intimate, and nonsexual touch more intimate than just about anything else i can think of.

What about you? What is intimate for you?

SO, things have got my brain thinking lately and I want to talk about kink.

More specifically I want to celebrate kink.

We all have what turns us on. We all have what we love. Some of us experience it through real life, some of us fiction and art and vids and other things.

[community profile] kink_bingo is a beautiful thing.

I just thought that today, just for a while, we could revel in those kinks. We talk about them, say what we like about them, say what we don't like about them. Celebrate them for what they are.

You can do it anon if you like and you can say as much or as little as you want but the point is here that there should be no shame, no guilt for what you are into. You should dance in it, spin in it, be happy you enjoy what you enjoy, even if its dark, even if some people might look at you and say "Dude, that's fucked up."

It doesn't matter

Because as long as you are experiencing that kink safely then no one has the right to give a fuck.

So come on, give me a babble, give me an essay or just give me a comment saying "Fuck me, do I love being tied up and gagged.

Your strange, crazy, awesome self.

That's what my partner said to me today. They said that;s what I should be.

My strange, crazy, awesome self.

I know this might seem odd but after having a few days of utter suck, it's strange to hear someone --anyone-- say those words to me.

Because they're not saying be your normal self, be your average self, be your typical self.

They're saying be your awesome self. Your strange, wonderful, beautiful, queer, bizarre, odd self.

They're saying be myself.



And I don't know, I don't think people hear that enough. I don't think people do it enough. I don't think people remember how to do it enough because they''re always in the sort of company that doesn't allow it.

But today, when I go to bed (which should be in a few minutes) I am going to go to bed with those words echoing in my head and tomorrow, when I wake up, I hope to wake with them echoing in my head.

So to you, you and you, I say be yourself. be you r bright, shadowing, sparking, dark, feathery, dancing,, awesome,, amazing, brilliant, bold, shy brash, awkward, stunning self.

Because I have been a rabbit of negative euphoria today, I've decided to put this up. I recorded it....Yesterday? Possibly the day before yesterday. I'm not really sure. Downswings make the world beed together. But oh wel.

I know nothing of More Joy day than the name. I know that it is meant to bring people good feelings, I know that it is meant to make them happier, to bring them well, more joy.

And I want to do that. I want to bring more joy to people, to make them see stars, to make them smile and feel better about themselves.

So I thought i would tell you that I loved you.

Yes, Im taking to you. I'm taking to all of you, all of you in my life I love you, I adore you, I cherish you.

You help make me who I am, shape me into the creature I a now. I can't even begin to thank you for that, I wouldn't know where to start.

So instead I'll say I love you, I'll say that you make me shine, that you make me smile. I'll say that having you in my life is a blessing. I'll say that having you in my life has been a wonder.

Thank you, al of you. Because even if I don't comment, I read, and your words get in my head and they sit there and they make me think.. I think because of you, I consider and I ponder and I use my brain because of you.

And I don't know, I can't think of a better compliment than that. Than 'you make me think' becuase that means your stimulating, that you're powerful, that you're something that moves me.

And yes, you move me, you all move me.

And I love you for it. I love you, I love you, I love you.

So go tell someone you love them, or go tell someone that they make you smile or go tel someone that you simply like having them around.

Just go. DO something. Bring more Joy into the world.

Thank you all for being in my life and I ove you..

Comment to this post and I'll tell you one thing I love about you, and/or one reason why I'm glad we're friends.
whatawaytoburn: ([Cats] Adoration)
Because I have not seen one go around lately, come here and let em tell you why I love you. Or, if you'd like, leave your name here, post it to your journal and let your friends tell you why they love you. It doesn't matter to me really, the point here is still one in the same.

Love. We all need it sometimes, we all crave it and deserve it and I think it's time we had love go around for a little hiwl.

I woke up today, found that my front door was wide open and my dog is gone. This has happened several times now but it is still unnerving as hell all the same.

I'm going to keep the door open and try and stay up until the dog gets home and then maybe take a nap. Or, if the sun is up and such, I might just go over to my aunt's house, since she has food and we really...don't.

Anyway, have a meme. For anyone who;s been following me on Plurk, they know that it's not been an easy few days and god knows that life in general has been hard, so maybe I kind of could use this one.

Something is turning around in my head but I'm not sure what it is yet, I just know that it involves love.

So I'm turning to you guys to maybe help me out.

Talk to me about love.

Tell me how you define it. Tell me about things that you love. Tell me what it feels like to not have love in your life. Tell me about first loves. Tell me about love that hit you on first sight that was slow and burning and long.

I just want to read about the things and people that you love and I can't quite explain to you why but I want to see it. I think I'm looking for definitions more than everything else but I can't be sure, I know there's more to it then that but I can't figure out what.

So, help someone out?

Also, if you could pass this around please do so. I want to get as many answers as I possibly could.

Cause it's just been a really hard day,, so I'll take this or any other nice things you'd be willing to say, honestly.

I kind of meant to do this post a while ago when I liked the article to a friend, then tonight Alex reminded me by making icons of the article.

The pleasure article

It's written by Jack RInella, a writer who's in the Chicago BDSM scene. I like reading his articles in general but this one I read over and over again. Even if you're not interested in BDSM at all, I would suggest you read it. It's a great pick me up and a wonderful reminder to enjoy life.

I keep meaning to print it out and put it on my wall. It's something I suggest looking at on bad days, on good days and whenever you need something to smile about.

So, even if I get nothing else done tonight, my day has not been a waste. I figured out my last two squares for [community profile] kink_bingo (Slings And Arrows and Memento) and I finished an application for Reid. I know neither of these things are that big in the grand scheme of things but I'm glad to say they got done nonetheless.

I'm probably going to nest in music from my childhood and old threads for the rest of the night. Depending on how I feel, I might try and stay awake for the sunrise. I sort of feel like I could use a sunrise in my life right now.

So, this week has not been the greatest so far. It's not been the worst but between having gotten kicked out of our mall for trying to do the questions, some financial issues and knowing that my mother will be, well, my other over it, I'm sort of waiting for the week to be over.

Anyway, I wasn't planning to do this meme but the name of it made me smile and the subject line in the entry sort of sealed the deal.

Be Excellent to Each Other - My Thread

And because I think it's probably not a bad thing to do, a list of things that, despite this week, make me happy.
- Alex.
- Coffee
- Sanctuary
- My desk
- Sex books
- The bookmark I found in one of the sex books
- Having food in the house
- Having the ability to write
- Music from my childhood
- Knowing that we do not have to move next month

I love my girlfriend.

I don't do love filled posts that often but I'm doing it now.

This week has been hell, I've been in the hospital (were not talking about it), everyone's been stressed, I'...Kind of fucked up mentally and physically right now but Alex has been nothing but the best.

She's a treasure you guys, an honest to goodness treasure who is taking wonderful care of me and dealing with shit and doing it all with a surprising amount of grace.

At least this is how I feel.

San too, deserves love, for what I hear she's doing a lot for us right now but this is nothing new.

I will always and forever be lucky to know the people I know.

Si, I'm sitting here at 6:30 in the morning drinking coffee. I haven't really slept yet, I'm watching the sun rise and my girlfriend is on our couch reading about sex.

We were standing outside earlier and just talking. Talking about this time last year and the season, when the sun was going to be rising for the rest of the year and our plans for the week.

We talked about all the things that are ours.

We talked about the things we need to do together before we die.

We talked about dead plants

I'm not sure when or how it happened but I think I'm getting sharing a life.

My girlfriend is amazing.

Actually she is fantabulous and brilliant and on crack but y'know.

There was more, there was things about Russians and love and the Hostess Twinkie snack cake but my brain short circuited.
