Erroneous Statements

I think we often, erroneously, state that, "Life got in the way of M/s". Over time, I have come to appreciate the error of those kinds of statement--M/s is life; therefore, life simply cannot interfere with it.
However, the rest of life can influence and change the currents in a rather undesirable manner.

Being sick
being a hot mess
having a family that's a mess
crazy chess events
squeezing money out of rocks
sick kids
you know, some of those less thrilling aspects of being human...

No, it is not life which interferes with M/s, it is simply life doing the ebb and flow that it does. And M/s must flow with it, because M/s is life.

I can feel the flow changing back to its familiar path. It is in the way he looks at me, the tone of his voice when he speaks to me, the possessive nature of his touch, the aggressive glint in his eyes.
It is in the nature of the beast to always return me safely to my knees. Even if I am occasionally just a touch reticent.


  1. Happy the flow seems to be returning to normal - hopefully more money will be in the flow.

  2. "M/s is life; therefore, life simply cannot interfere with it"... how this resonates with me ... so many times I have written that D/s has fallen by the way side because of life, but I love your view of D/s moving along with the flow of life ava x

    1. Ava Grace,
      I've written it too! Took me far to long to come to this particular conclusion...

  3. I love this Lil! Very well said as always and you are so right, ttwd IS life. I know I am guilty of making this statement. I love your perspective.


    1. Roz,
      thank you! Sometimes these perspectives take a while to become clear, and those kinds of statements are so...Easy? Took me a while to get to this conclusion.

  4. A really good distinction to remember. My collar doesn't come off through the ups and downs and blah's of 'stuff that has to get done.' I'm glad things are flowing for you - those times of greater connection are just plain crucial to all the rest.

    1. gg,
      it is a god, albeit occasionally difficult, distinction to remember.

      Thank you. They really are so very crucial to everything else.

  5. I've thought about this! People say they haven't had time for ttwd and I often wonder if they don't really see that it is still there...

    Happy to hear things are getting back to normal!

    1. Misty,
      oh yea, so you're a fast learner unlike some of us (ahem). Rub it in! :)
      I'm just messin, in case that wasn't clear...

  6. Wow!! This post sounds so much better than the last one :) glad to hear the flow is gaining some normalcy.


Play nice.
