Yesterday my weekend was off to a horrible start and made me realize just how fragile my mental health is. I call it ‘mental health’ for lack of a better term at this moment.
There are three roads I can take home – two of them take me around the city and the other right through it. One of the highways around the city was closed, so I had two options. I opted for the highway, but when I stood still for about 20 minutes, I thought I would rather drive through the city to at least keep on moving. Normally it takes me about 30-35 minutes to drive home from work on a Friday. Yesterday it took me almost two hours more. I was more or less okay until I parked my car. Then anger and disappointment and tiredness all enveloped me like a heavy blanket. I walked inside, gave Master T a kiss, put down my bags, took off my coat and my glasses and went to the loo. There I cried. Not only because of the traffic jam, but also because it’s my birthday tomorrow and I don’t want it to be. I fucking miss my mom so much that I don’t have words for it.
This morning I am still not back to my ‘cheery’ self of the last weeks, but let’s get back into working mode so I can push all those feelings way back and show the world everything’s okay. That I’m okay.
We should respect the ways others live their lives, as long as they don’t harm anyone. This is something I say a lot and reading the post by Luv Bunny, In pursuit of pleasure- is Hedonism selfish? I had to think of that. I should add that someone should not harm him-/herself either, but yes, we should enjoy life, because it’s short enough as it is!
A post about all kinds of power and the belief that a s holds the power in a D/s relationship, but where Rabbit in Chains rightfully asks: Who Holds The Power?
I have shared some of his posts in the past, and this story is just brilliant: The Dastardly Dom sails the High Seas. Do you like pirate stories? Then you should follow this as it might be turned into a Wicked Wednesday series.
This is such a sexy and playful image by Steeled Snake: Oops. There is something in it that invites you to be naughty too.
The edit of this image, Livvy’s nipple being pulled, is brilliant. The overexposed edit makes the image incredibly strong.
I want to run my hand over Hy’s tummy, then up, then down again… Rest.
This minimalist photo by Maria Opens Up is absolutely gorgeous. She might be Locked in the Mirror but she looks so damn sexy!
Oooh I think this is so cool, the way Molly has layered two images in her post, A layer of flowers – two beautiful images made into one.

Tips & tricks
I think many writers who are just starting out can benefit by reading this article: Why I Use an Editor by Pixie Heart, posted on The Smutlancer website.
Last but not least
This is the last Saturday of the February Photofest, which means I can share one more image of me in this section. Since it’s weekend and mine didn’t start out the way it should have, I think I am entitled to some lazying around, don’t you?
