~~Our Knight made this writing after a recent holiday trip. I am very grateful for chocolate and the safety of my family. Chocolate saved my life. Okay, that might sound a little dramatic. But I believe it to be true or at least not a lie. Let me explain. We live in the north in … Continue reading Chocolate Saved My Life
To me this means accepting and openly loving my partners for who they are without counting days, checking the calendar or clock. I'm not looking for steps to get to a specific destination. We don't go on so many dates before we kiss or have sex. There are no prescribed steps needed to take before … Continue reading Loving Without An Expected Timeline
Here is a writing our Knight did recently on love. In many poly families I hear the phrase or statement that they love their partner equally. There are many reasons for this statement but it is something that has never resonated with me. Loving equally is not something I could ever understand or be … Continue reading Love Uniquely Not Equally
I'm two days post-op from gallbladder surgery and already feeling just a tiny bit stir crazy. Good thing my body thinks we currently need to sleep a lot. That gives me less time to make bad decisions on things I think I could probably do. Daughter #2, who I live with, also happens to be … Continue reading Yoga and meditation, new beginnings for me.
Our Knight's thoughts on our Power Enhancement Dynamic... As Master and Leader of my family I see myself like the captain of the ship responsible to chart our course. The ship is the family and each of us have many tasks to keep this ship moving and thriving on our journey. To that end, … Continue reading P.E.D
I love when I read something that makes me think. And I love quotes so the writing I came across the other day was a twofer indeed. "You have to be transparent so you no longer cast a shadow but instead let the light pass through you." ~Kamand Kojouri Is that not beautiful? It started … Continue reading Casting Shadows
Late again! Being Thanksgiving week for me and the fact that I work in grocery and so my brain is currently mush with the amount of people I came in contact with the last few days and the knowledge that it will just get worse, or better, depending on how you think of it... I … Continue reading Energy and Self Awareness Ramblings
I try to publish something every Wed about 5pm my time, but missed yesterday because I haven't been feeling well. In the last week I've had two trips to urgent care and spent most of yesterday in the ER. What was originally thought to be kidney related is actually my gallbladder being a bitch. Anyway, … Continue reading Poly Math, a quick overview.
Much of my writing here has been about feelings and emotions and the expectations of those things within our family. My posts often center on the poly dynamic and as a result leave out much, if not most, of our power dynamic. Given that, I thought I might write an overview about what being in … Continue reading M/s, the Mist Way
I sit here with a hot cup of coffee and a tummy full of french toast while I watch the first fire of the season, actually the first fire of our new home, burning in the fireplace and reflect back over this past week. So many thoughts and emotions. Some very surprising to me, some … Continue reading The Wonderful and Not So Wonderful
