Good news – the sewer problem is fixed – a simple rodding and we have the comforts of civilization again. My “worst case scenario” fortunately wasn’t the case at all.
Bad news – slave angie threw her back out this morning and is currently confined to as much sitting/relaxing as possible.
Meh news – I am looking forward to going to a Sumerian beer tasting tonight at my favorite museum in the world, but it will be without slave angie. We are so connected at the hip that I really don’t like going places without her. A club sister is going with me, and we will have fun, but…
Slave angie and I always joke about how we’re connected at the hip, how we can finish each others thoughts, how neither of us really like to be away from the other. It is, I think, part and parcel to an M/s relationship. The amount of communication, trust and transparency we have with each other has led to a love and a connection that is very powerful.
I’m reminded that Guy Baldwin spoke about love and Master/slave relationships in his book Ties That Bind. “I love you ’cause you know me, I trust you with my Self.” Very true – to maintain this type of relationship, at least for slave angie and I, has required a level of intimacy and trust that leads us to be true to each other. Open to a love that isn’t about the heteronormative “love” but rather a love caused by two people who walk a path and the edge hand in hand… with her one step to the right and rear. Of course.
So slave angie will rest, under orders, and I will feel her next to me, even when she’s not there.
