Going Home…

11 Sep

Here in kink world, the outside world seems to disappear.  So i just now realized this is the 10th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11.  In honor of the people who lost their lives, and all the people who’ve worked to help the survivors, i pause.  

From my own faith tradition, i pray for peace in my heart, in my community and in the world.

******************************

i’ve had an amazingly wonderful experience at C.O.P.E. {Central Ohio Perversion Excursion.} The workshops were excellent.

As planned, i went to “A slave’s Heart” with Sir Top and slave bonnie, which was lots of fun and interesting. i went to the one they did on Fear too, which was a lot of fun.

i went to one on Energy Orgasms, and {theoretically} learned how to have an orgasm from breathing and Kegel exercises.  i think i’m going to have to practice that a little more.

And i went to the two workshops that Raven did.  

Raven, and his boy, Josh, are amazing.  The first class was on polyamory, which is not my thing, but by the time i got through listening to him, it didn’t seem like a terrible idea anymore.   At least, i can understand people like ‘Nilla, who aren’t appalled at the idea of sharing.

His class on spirituality  touched my heart, and my life.  i’ll be writing lots more about that ~ but not right now.   

Then there was the play party {no, i didn’t play.}  i did watch Drew and B, another sub, get flogged by Ms. Julia and Roger, her sub or slave, which was interesting.  

Afterwards, She offered to play with me sometime too, which was delightfully flattering.  

But tonight, Sir X and i have our own play party, which is more exciting than anything that could have happened here.

Right now, i need to jump in the shower, get dressed, load my car, and start the trek home.  Laundry awaits my attention. 

But first ~ you know, i was thinking yesterday ~ this time last year, i was here at C.O.P.E. with Sir D.  Everything was new and exciting, and i was just trying to take it all in.

And i was so anxious  i was worried about pleasing him, worried about wearing the right thing, doing the right thing.  i had a wonderful time, and there was a ton of anxiety.

This year, of course, that anxiety was gone.  It felt good to ~ to move freely through the event space without feeling like i need to be careful not to let him down in some way.  Really, just to get dressed without being afraid i’d fall short was wonderful.

It’s tempting to look ahead to next year.  To fantasize being here with Sir X.   But i won’t ~ not much, anyhow.  

Today is enough for me.

P.S.  When i get home, i’ll get caught up on blogging stuff ~ reading and answering comments…

      Thank you, Donna… yep, that’s the best place to be, isn’t it? Right here and now…

    It sounds like you enjoyed this trip to C.O.P.E. if not more, then experienced it differently than your first visit. It’s nice when you can relax and just be “yourself.”

    I’m sure Sir X is awaiting your return! 🙂

    Have a safe journey home.

    Take care, Sky

      @Sky,

      Yes – it was just different. Not necessarily better, cause there was a lot of excitement in that first time too. But being myself is good.

      And actually, Sir X is on His way over, um, now! 🙂

      Thanks,

      aisha

    It was great to see you!

    I felt like we were breathing together and sharing and it was pleasant but yeah, I don’t really think that the chakra breath thing is my scene, haha.

      Hey, Minx,

      It was great to see you too! And yeah, I’m glad you were there, and it was fun breathing together. Of course, maybe it would work better if you were with another partner ~ it seemed to me that some of the couples in the room also had some other kinds of stimulation going on!

    i don’t know how i missed this post? i’ve been going through my inbox trying to get to all these old posts and emails etc from the past 3 weeks…how did one of your posts slip by me?

    i’m so so glad you got to meet Raven. I’ve know him for 20+ years…and the funny thing is, i never, ever knew he was into kink. He is a mutual friend of my wife and i….

    Yet he speaks to a wide audience, kink or vanilla…and his views on living a full, spiritual, fulfilling life are nothing short of inspiring. He lives a 99% off the grid life, almost totally living off the land and animals he farms in a small town not too far from me. All in all, he is a wonderful person to hang out with, to be around.

    And if you told him nilla said hi, he’d be totally clueless….*giggles* such a small world we live in!!

      ‘Nilla, I could rave about Raven for days. Haven’t even started on him. If I knew him, I’d go see if I could sign up for kinky spiritual guidance. For real.

      Hugs,

      Aisha
