I saw a crash on the quays last week. Busy dodging fellow pedestrians as I headed to the bus stop at the height of Christmas shopping season, I almost failed to notice the surprisingly soft crunch of well-designed crumple zones doing their job. It’s shocking how much damage can occur with so little noise. I'm … Continue reading 2018
I sit in the pub with a pint and a laptop, typing frantically, focused on my work, my words. Out of the corner of my eye though, I sometimes see the concerned looks. Sometimes notice the pity. It’s the holidays, and they think I’m alone. I’m not though, not really. I’m with you. … Continue reading Happy Holidays!
A few weeks ago, a good friend closed his spanking blog. He did so on his own terms, and for the happiest of personal reasons. It was the best way, if there is a best way, to leave this virtual world. We are still in touch by email, and planning a visit soon. Even so, … Continue reading Lost and Found

Mere weeks later, I found myself bent before him, face pressed into the cool hard wall of a decidedly unusual nightclub, … Continue reading Salad Days
Acknowledging Imperfection turns two years old today! The patient among you who have been following along have likely noticed that the fits and moods associated with children that age seems to have been started. Posting regularly hasn’t happened as planned lately, and I’m using this milestone as an opportunity to return with renewed dedication to … Continue reading Terrible Twos
Nothing quite compared to the feeling of a soft spring breeze in newly-straightened hair. It was the first time Julie had attempted to do such a thing to her own head, having only recently consented to let her hairdresser give it a go. The results Sharon had managed to produce were stunning, but expensive. Three … Continue reading Hair
Back when I first started this whole blogging thing, I came out to a vanilla friend. I was about to get together with a man I met online and needed someone to act as a safety call. It seemed a good idea to clue her in a bit, though this was not a decision undertaken … Continue reading The View from There
An impending spanking is no reason not to enjoy time with friends.
