I wanted to drop a quick note of thanks and reassurance to you all…For the phone calls and emails expressing worry and concern, I thank you and say unequivocally, that the Experiment continues apace, albeit with a heavy heart…
For those that do not know, the spectre of death has been hovering over members of my extended family of late.
A very close friend died quite unexpectedly, at an untimely 36 years of age, after a routine outpatient knee-surgery; a second-cousin passed two weeks ago, after a short illness; and most recently the grandparent (more like mother) of another very close friend succumbed to a massive infection on Mother’s Day (of all days), and was laid to final rest on Saturday. All of these passings have shaken me and those I love and care for, requiring me to put my life on hold to be a family member, friend, confidant and simply a shoulder to cry on.
It’s also shaken my interpretation of my own mortality.
I’m even more certain now that life is meant to be lived on one’s own terms doing what one feels is best for their own sanity and happiness. Do no harm, first, but live your life in your own way, is a close second. So, as I mourn and help others mourn, I’m reminded of why I started this blog to begin with: to celebrate the beauty that is the human body and the joy that is sexual expression, two very good reasons to live.
When I return from this hiatus, expect to see boundaries pushed and even greater expression of the element of sacred sensuality…
In the meantime, again, I thank everyone whose words of encouragement and concern have helped guide me through this dark period I’ve had to endure.
