Ideas and imagination…unfettered.


My Library of Self Love

My Library of Self Love

Some of my “toys” have had a pretty good workout and the Androgel is still working but without someone whose caresses inflame me, whose kisses knock my socks off and whose “come hither” glances make me do just that, it’s just a place holder. In time I guess, in time.

I’ve been doing some reading and I’ll share the titles with you. One is “The Lesbian Kama Sutra” by Kat Harding. It is tenderly illustrated with ‘how to’ positions and even uncovers art about the subject from over the centuries. This is one of those books I’ve found I can pick up and read a chapter, and then put it down for awhile.

The book I’ve just finished is, “The Science of Yoga, The Risks and Rewards” by William J. Broad. I found a great review of it when reading Macleans magazine and especially the sections regarding relaxation, increase of libido and stretching of muscles. He gives an evenhanded description of what is good about yoga and what can be risky and/or dangerous. He describes the different types of yoga available and what to look out for so that your choice is the best one for you.

From yoga to meditation to Mindfulness, it just changes the way you look at the world, and the way the world perceives you. 

I’m now fully engrossed “My Stroke of Insight” by Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD. On December 10, 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a thirty-seven year old Harvard trained brain scientist experienced a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain. As she observed her mind deteriorate to the point where she could not walk talk, read, write or recall any of her life—all within four hours—Taylor alternated between the euphoria of the intuitive and kinesthetic right brain, in which she felt am sense of complete wellbeing and peace, and the logical, sequential left brain, which recognized she was having a stroke and enabled her to seek help before she was completely lost. For Taylor, the stroke was a blessing and a revelation. It taught her that by “stepping to the right” of our left-brains, we can all uncover feelings of well-being that are sidelined by “brain chatter.” No, you don’t have to have a stroke to experience this inner peace. It is accessible to anyone and some people may recognize it as “meditation” or “Mindfulness.”

So what does this have to do with this blog? If you can ‘step towards the right side of your brain’ and quiet the left- brain chatter, the peace you feel will be felt not only by you but by those you come in contact with on a daily basis. From yoga to meditation to Mindfulness, it just changes the way you look at the world, and the way the world perceives you. I guess you’d say it is a matter of “attraction.”

Be happy, be frisky, be peaceful!
