Battered but Not Beaten

“‘The time has come,’ the Walrus said, ‘to talk of many things: of shoes—and ships—and ceiling wax—of cabbages—and kings—and why the sea is boiling hot—and whether pigs have wings.’”* I am returning to talk of many things indeed. I have beaten back the wolves. My hands and my sword and my lawn are blooded. I have drunk down dark things and will drink them all again before I give in to those wolves of despair. Yes, yes, yes, I am being figurative. Sufficient for now to say that the wolf-pack has been turned away, and I am still here.

Some of you may wonder what the wolves really were. Well, that is none of your business, frankly. So no, I am not going to talk about that.

I will have an… Cute girl on the front row, put your hand down. I can see you are excited, but there will be time for comments and questions later. This won’t take long.

I will have an assignment for submissives up tomorrow. And a follow up for Dominants.

I will have plenty to say about politics and the like in the next few days.

I intend to have a new Spiritual Discipline up in seven days or so.

If you left comments and I have not yet responded to them, I will soon.

To the commentor who recently told me to get over myself and that society is lost because some people refer to me as Sir, I say go away. I know not what made you bitter and angry, but it was not me. Take your bitterness elsewhere. Just go away.

Be good, stu… Yes, cute girl on the front row? Speak up now. Yes, you may come to my office to show me how grateful you are that I am back. You are so cute when you blush that way.

Be good, students. Keep breathing.

*If by some chance you are so lacking in education you do not know wherefrom I borrow that quote, go look it up.

  1. Wasn’t that RW in Good Will Hunting? Looking it up would be cheating.

  2. Yes Sir, speaking on behalf of those in the front row… it is exciting to see you again. It has been a long time since I have read that quote. I find that I had missed that as well as your posts Sir. As for the wolves: “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

  3. Dear Sir,
    I believe that I should constantly learn and grow. Finding Liberate One has been an enlightening experience. I’m glad you’re back. I hope you’ve defeated the darkness that has taken you away from this site. You have stepped through the “Looking Glass” and returned. Sir, you were dearly missed by this novice.
    I look forward to being a new student if you will accept me. You’re a wonderful teacher with a lively intellect. It’s refreshing to know that there is substance and style in D/s and not just bravado. I’m anticipating your future post. Until then, I will take your advice and breathe.
    Respectfully yours,

  5. “But wait a bit, ” the oysters cried, “before we have our chat; for some of us are out of breath, and all of us are fat!”

    Welcome back

  6. Sir,

    I would like to participate in sub assignment #1. You ask for comments about the experience, mine may be NSFW. Would you prefer that I keep my comments PG13? I can be careful if you want me to or you may use anything I write for future story ideas. I’m happy that you are back.

  7. The classics always change. But one would think if they hadn’t read it in the original, people would have at least heard it through animated Disney.

  8. Welcome back, Sir. I missed you and your words.
