Just Because I Feel Like Writing

Jan 11, 2018 | Posted by in Being Poly, Everyday Jade | 1

I don’t have a theme to this post, or anything in particular I need to get off my chest, to work through, to say. I’m just feeling…chatty, I guess, feeling like nattering on about inconsequential things, something I haven’t done here in quite awhile. Sometimes it seems like everything I write here has to be “Important” with a capital “I”, or that I am so bound up in things that are happening and desperate to walk my way through them in writing (because that’s how I work things out best) that everything I write is heavy with the weight of its own significance (at least to me.) But tonight…no, I just feel like writing. I was so inspired I couldn’t even wait until I got home (though once here I did do two hours of homework before I allowed myself blog time.) Here is what I “wrote” via voice whileRead more …

Scavenging at the Beach

Jan 7, 2018 | Posted by in Memes & Prompts, Scavenger Hunt, Sinful Sunday | 11

I had told V that Adam and I would certainly be trying to score more Scavenger Hunts¬†while we traveled; it’s a favorite way for us to explore new places. As a way to stay connected while we were apart, I invited him to come up with a list of a few that he would challenge me to find, making it even more of a true Scavenger Hunt. He sent me a list of 14 potential locations, and challenged me to do at least five, and further, to be sure that each was different fro the others, i.e. not all titty shots. That last part I thought might be challenging, but hey, I like a good challenge, right? So off we went… These were the ones he picked: Alley, Beach Hut, Bus Stop, Construction Site, Embankment/Sea Wall, Escalator, Farm Equipment, Fast Food Chain, Fishing Nets, Holiday Decorations (public), Railroad Crossing, LifeRead more …

A New Year’s Eve at the Beach

Round about a month ago, I got the sudden impulse to see the ocean before the year ends. I know, I’d just spent five days in the mountains, and a long weekend at Lake Michigan this past summer, but nothing works to soothe my soul like the sound of waves, the smell of salt water, the sight of the endless horizon of the sea. Adam, being the lovely soul that he is, agreed to¬†indulge me, and we planned a twelve-and-a-half-hour road trip to the Carolina coast on the spur of the moment. And that’s I ended up by the beach for four days over the New Year’s Eve weekend, and I couldn’t have been happier. I had enjoyed my time with Les in the mountains, and felt I was very relaxed there, but after just a couple days away with Adam I realized I probably wasn’t as relaxed as IRead more …
