#SoSS #122: The Lockdown Edition

With the corona virus holding the world in its tight grip, so many countries have locked down, ordering their citizens to stay in, and if they don’t, they can get a fine for it. Rightfully so. Over here we still don’t have a full lock-down (I wish we had), but an ‘intellectual lock-down’ as they call it, in other words we have to use our own discretion when going out, while taking into account the rules the government has determined – keeping a distance of 1.5 meters from each other, and no more visiting each other. This means I can’t see my kids, and for that I am very sad, as I miss them. In ‘normal’ times I won’t see them every week either, but not knowing how long this will go on, frightens me.

Yes, I know I said I want a full lock-down, and that means I still won’t see y kids. So why do I want the lock-down? Because I want to stay home. I don’t want to go out. I am afraid of catching the virus and giving it to Master T, who has been on immune suppressants for months, and I don’t even want to think what can happen to him if he gets it. I have been working from home since we returned from London, and I am not welcome at the office until the cold is gone. Now having a cold for two weeks is strange (and yes, the thought that I might have the virus has crossed my mind) and irritating, but I am not complaining about the working-from-home bit. And, despite my cold, Master T still doesn’t have the slightest sniffle. He’s perfectly okay! I just want to keep it that way.

Wherever you are, if you can stay inside please do. I am constantly following the numbers (I have family all over the world – South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, America) and the rate at which the numbers are rising is alarming.

Last but not least, I want to thank ALL the health workers out there who are putting their own health on the line EVERY day by caring for the sick. Back when my mom was so ill I developed a huge respect for health workers, and it has grown even more, reading and following the stories of the work you do. Thank you!

Writing

Now this is a game I would love to play. Brigit Delaney has written a tantalizing story called Photographs and I absolutely love the idea here. I think there should be another part, don’t you?

Love is one of the strongest emotions I know, and the story Victoria Blisse shared this week, Red Umbrella first addresses a horror, and then it changes from hate to love. Something we all need a lot of in these times we live in.

So many of us are locked down at the moment in an attempt to ‘flatten the curve’ and drive the virus out, and what do we do then, except working from home? We write. And that is what askmefast19 has done. Read his story: Hard times when working from home. I mean, when working from home you have to have some fun too, right?

A post that brought a tear to my eye, but also hope and respect is How Are You Doing? by Bibulous One. In these trying times, we all have to find a way to get through, and I think we should all take the astronaut’s advice.

Images

I have been enjoying the images Elliott Henry has been sharing of DreamCatcher, and this week the fabulous green of her image, Have a Dreamy St. Pat’s and her mischievous smile caught my attention. And there are some bonus images too!

There is something about Hot Showers that are soothing and revitalizing and also so damn sexy, especially when you share an image like Lillith Avir did. I love that one nipple clearly be seen, while the rest of her body is hazy behind the wet glass.

I literally studied the image in Tell me for several minutes, taking in the light and the shadows, the curve of Nikki’s body, ger beautiful breasts and then the fact that her pussy seems to disappear in the shadows. Brilliant image, and beautiful words to go with it.

The image Posy shared in her post Coping With The Crazy – Posy Style #SoSS should be a painting, it’s so beautiful. I love everything about it, her pose, the hate, the socks, the lamp in the background, and the framing!

I have been enjoying the tasks MLSlavePuppet has been sharing with us, and when I read Task 5: Pleasant Burning, I had this urge to try tiger balm, and even more so when I saw her delicious image, the second in her post. It’s like a beautiful flower!

Wicked Wednesday

Every week someone else in the community does the top 3 roundup for Wicked Wednesday. Sometimes it’s me, but mostly it’s someone else. I love to engage others to do it, because I want Wicked Wednesday to be for everyone.

Are you interested in doing the roundup (again)? Just get in contact with me!

Prompt 408 for Wicked Wednesday was ‘Hugging’ for which 29 posts were linked. The top 3 was done by F Dot Leonora and he chose:

Smut Marathon

Tomorrow.

Tomorrow the third voting round of the Smut Marathon 2020 opens. Are you ready? I hope you are, and I hope you will vote, as I think every writer who has sent in their story needs your support. It’s not easy for people to write in these times, as we are all worried about the world out there, and where and when this virus will end. However, they did write, and tomorrow and this coming week it’s time for you to read and vote, not only to support the writers, but also to forget the world out there for a little while.

Tips & tricks

Anyone who needs a bit of relaxation in these trying times might want to read Brigit Delaney’s post, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness and other posts on mindfulness on her site.
