    Celebrate

    Love your birthday or hate it, we all have them. Considering the alternative, it is a good thing. I have found that the more times I celebrate my birthday, the less I care about what the celebration looks like and more about who I am celebrating with. The number of times I have celebrated my birthday is a little daunting these days. The alternative, as stated before, is more daunting. Last year, my health scare made me evaluate my perspective on a larger scale than before. I have always thought of age as just a number. My number seems quite a bit distant from most of my friends. They are…

    Just One Day of Love?

    Valentines Day is just annoying to me. Just one day of love? Shouldn’t this be something we focus on year-round? My birthday is February 15. The day after the day of love. When I was a kid, my Dad would always show up on Valentine’s Day with a small stuffed animal and a small candy box for my sister and me. That is my best memory of this day. As I got older, it just got annoying. Valentines Day became a challenge for men (back in the day, that was the focus, so don’t shoot me with feminism on this one. I’m 57 years old today – it was literally…

    Cornered

    I love the feeling of being cornered by him, waiting for his next move. This is another photo from the professional photoshoot last year. It is not super clear, but I was in a corner, and we were trying different poses and doing the photo shoot thing. When I take my pictures, I always have a thought in mind that I want to relay through the photograph. I am always waiting for Daddy to set the pace. He has never put me in the corner to wait for him; I don’t mean that kind of waiting. Although I am sure that has crossed his mind on occasion. Usually, when we…

    Blindfold

    There is something that thrills me when I wear a blindfold. I am pretty closter phobic, so it is not comfortable for me when my entire face is covered. Wearing a blindfold intensifies all my other senses and makes my other senses more responsive. The first time I wore a blindfold during sex, I was unsure I would enjoy it. It was ok. At the time, the man I was with used a tie as a blindfold, and we had typical vanilla sex. I didn’t think it was terrific, but it did add a bit of difference if nothing else. I didn’t know then what I would eventually explore in…
