I hope you like, my love.

Beautiful Holly.

In reply to your comment on mine (sorry for the incredibly delayed response….!) it is so interesting how we can share similar words like that, I don't know it's like we all bundle through life thinking we are having all these amazing unique experiences and I don't know if it's comforting or distressing when we find they cross over or match up to what somebody else has felt. A combination of both I guess.

You can listen to some of my songs here… - both "On Needs" and "Perils of Alchemy" are about the physical aspects of certain relationships I had in the past, Perils is about a dangerous/powerful relationship and On Needs is me talking about what I wanted but didn't get (hence the title!) but if you get a chance to listen to them and interpret them differently that's always interesting to me to hear what other people hear in my lyrics. :)

Have a wonderful christmas my dear!!! XXXXX

Most of the time I'm the sub, because that comes more naturally to me than anything else...but technically, we're switches. In this collage, though, I am very much the sub, collared and dreamy under his spell :)

At 17 January 2014 at 15:11 , Blogger Denise Sabs said...

It's a "scary" coincidence, I was thinking of you this week, and thinking that there was a time you used to post more often, and so I didn't come here in December because I didn't think you would write something - you know, there are some bloggers that take a big break. But I am glad you posted and your collage is great! As usual, you are very good at that! Thanks for your words about my painting! I have some that way, but some people entering my living room got a bit uncomfortable :) elderly ones,,basically, but I respect their opinions for sure. I really want to paint more this year - sometimes I take a long break! Hope you are fine! denisesplanet com
