I’ve only posted 1 blog entry so far this year and we are now about halfway through it but what can say other than 2013 has been a motherfucker so far. I don’t think I am alone in saying this because quite a few people I have spoken with have felt the same way. After dealing with a physical injury at the beginning of the year which has dragged on for a bit, in addition to some pretty trying personal experiences, I am ready for a change of pace.
June has arrived and with that so have some other very positive things. The book, Kisses To Kink, that I co-wrote with Domi Dollz has been released and we have received amazing feedback so far. I’m still trying to find the words to describe how good it feels to finally have what we have worked so hard for over the past year put out in the world and be well received.
June also happens to be the month I was born and with my birthday coming up it has caused me to reflect on my life. I’m sure anyone who has gone through a rough patch can wind up feeling a bit down for a while and when going through a period like that it can be hard to remember the good things and what we should be grateful for. Looking back over even just the last few years I have to admit that I have had some pretty incredible experiences that I should not take for granted. I have lectured at Princeton about kink, co-wrote a book that I am very proud of, and been the subject of several amazing fine art projects in both photography and sculpture by very talented artist such as Natasha Gornik and Ted Lawson. Also can’t forget my travels to beautiful places, performing scenes on stage and in videos for one of the dopest emcees in Brooklyn and dear friend of mine, I Am Many, and being able to share my knowledge of kink with a large variety of diverse people through Domi Dollz workshops.
I am not sharing all this to stroke my own ego but more as a way to celebrate and say thank you. I highly doubt that I would have had all these incredible expreinces if it weren’t for my personal love for kink and what I do. It has open up a world of opportunities that I never even dreamed of. From meeting really talented people to work with, to cultivating invaluable friendships, and sharing lots of fun and deeply touching moments with my favorite clients and slaves I feel inspired to say thank you to you all for making my life so wonderful. So raise a your glasses and cheers cause this one is for you! xoxo
