Students, you might want to prepare to take some notes today. I talked about rituals once before, about having rituals and including them in D/s. Today, I want to talk more specifically about creating a ritual. One can just string some actions together, repeat it all a few times, and call it a ritual. But one can also be more thoughtful about it, and give specific meaning to specific actions and thereby create a ritual with more significance and beauty.

None of those claims are even remotely close to the truth. Continue reading
I have talked here many times about the foolishness of politicians and some of the ways I think the U.S. government is doing things that keep making things worse here in the United States.
