Life and Blogging Today (7-18-15)
Hello, my dear friends and readers,
Despite the absence of recent writing, I do think of my blogging friends a lot. And, I often think about the potential for this site, and I get really excited. I love doing kink/BDSM education. I love the blogging community. We all love sharing our exploits…
But, I’m finding these days, that I rarely have time. Not only do Serafina and Sinnjara keep me busy, but I’ve become far more active in our local BDSM community. We’ve become far more active in attending events too, so finding time to blog has been difficult.
Last winter was really tough, both Serafina and I had back surgery. I’ve recovered from mine, but Serafina will need more surgery later this year. Sinnjara hasn’t been totally free from health issues herself, but she was there for us for the first month of recovery for both of our surgeries. And, she continues to provide great service still, despite having to balance time here with the needs of her son who lives 70 miles away.
groups and events
I’m now on the Board for a local BDSM group named Riverbound. I was even given the honor of being selected to be Board Chair. So, I have the privilege to run the group’s board meetings.
Riverbound has a monthly munch at a local restaurant, it has a monthly meeting called the submissive forum, and it has a monthly play party. The organization is in its 15th year of existence and probably has more lifestyle experience than any other club its size. Many of us have 10, 15, 20, 25, or even 30 years of experience living BDSM and/or poly lifestyles.
The Samadhi family is sometimes involved with a local (for Sinnjara) BDSM/kink group named CROP, based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We also have attended events put on by CIPEX, an organization based in Des Moines, Iowa. And, we have some other regional events on our “radar” for later in the year as well.
And, if all that’s not enough, I recently petitioned MAsT International for permission to form a local chapter of MAsT (Masters And slaves Together).
