pleasure and pain

So I’ve been thinking about some things for a while and I’m not sure where I want to go with this post, but I have some thoughts and questions that need to get out. A few weeks (or months) ago a man I was corresponding with asked about my feelings about domination and submission. Quite honestly, my feelings are all…

Little men and big backpacks

For a very brief time I was a substitute teacher at a Montessori school. For a few months, I taught fourth through sixth graders as their regular teacher was on maternity leave. After that few months I did on-call subbing. There was this little boy – a little man – blonde, moppy head of hair, little round-lens glasses – picture…

RedLine fun
