Once More With Emotion

Posted in Article with tags , on February 25, 2009 by Radagast

I was going to post something yesterday but two drafts later I was still unsatisfied with my thoughts or with the result. The subject of emotions has come up more than once in the last week or so and I wanted to address it.

Talk Day

Posted in Article with tags , on February 21, 2009 by Radagast

I actually have to get to work putting together an outline for tonight from all the notes that we’ve made. Nothing formal — just a guide to get us from beginning to end and keep us on topic (with the occasional and unavoidable sidetrack).

Everyone gave us good suggestions, many of which told me that certain topics are more important to most than others. The ones that we’ll try to focus on are probably the notions of jealousy/envy and balancing a kinky life with the mundane aspects of a relationship (married or otherwise). These things seem relatively important enough that they might draw other folks into a conversation which is something I would like rather than it being us talking “at” people (assuming anyone shows up).

Most of all, this talk is going to be about addressing issues and telling people that it’s very possible to be married or in a relationship and still be active in the scene. I’m still looking for my little digital voice recorder so I can use it tonight. The quality is not so hot but I can listen and transcribe portions.

Insert Obligatory Valentine’s Post Here

On this day that some like and others feel tortured by (or openly hate), allow me to entertain you with my strange mixture of romanticism, cynicism and several undiagnosed mental disorders.
