Someone just wrote me saying that last night they dreamed I was tying their wrists together before tying them to the bed-end. They said it was a good dream, so that was a nice thing for me to think about.
I’ve had a similar dream about her, but I used leather cuffs rather than rope.
She’s dropping by. “Dropping by” makes it sound a bit more casual than it is. It’s the sort of “dropping by” you have to pack for.
And she brings new experiences, which is to say, herself.
Obviously it won’t be the first time I’ve done that small bit of bondage in general, but it will be the first time I will have done it with that woman. Like Prometheus, she’s been more or less unbound. Till now. Or till soon, anyway.
So it will be exploration: a completely new experience. You don’t have to leave home for them. Which is lucky because I’ve been to so many new places, including 200 miles above the Arctic Circle, in my travels. Now I’m back in my bit of the world I’d hate for the Shock of the New to stop coming.
The gag reference was only there for the feeble pun. But it’s funny how a casual idea, that only crossed my mind for the silliest possible reason, solidifies into a project.
So I shall explore that – with her – too. She’s a vocal girl, and what she has to say is always interesting. So she’ll find silence hard. I suppose she’ll find me hard in her silence.
I think we’ll both be happy. Happiness is simple.
In the four weeks I’ve been away from home, a tree has blown down so I’ve got plenty of firewood. The lawn hasn’t grown (winter) so that’s good. Six new book cases were delivered this morning, so I’ve got my work cut out getting them into place without making the place seem crammed. And I have to get organised for that wonder-girl’s arrival.
And once I’ve got myself organised, I can continue with the Raylene story. The episodes can appear while I’m too busy to write.
The funny thing is that I’ve been thinking about the leather cuffs, so I don’t know why I dreamt rope. But it was a good dream and I’m not complaining.
Yes, the dropping by requires packing. And a passport. After a journey of those proportions, I’ll be very much looking forward to exploring and having adventures.
Adventure Time! There shall be … caves. Mountains. Also, pathetic fallacies.
