“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t then it is of no use to us.”  – Carlos Castaneda

Remember the first day of school and having to go around and introduce yourself in all the classes? I hated those days. I never knew what to say and here I am all these years later making a bio for our website and I still don’t know what to say.

Owned girl wired for service and obedience. I am bisexual, masochistic, submissive and poly. To me, my life is ordinary because it is just so natural and normal for me

I have been enjoying kink since I was 16. I have had elements of kink and D/s in all my intimate relationships since then, but I didn’t really have a name for it until 1994. In 1994, I found words for what it was and became more active in BDSM.

Since 1997, I have spoken at a variety of meetings, groups and events about being a slave.  I have been published by Power Exchange Books.  I have been expressing my thoughts on my blog since 2000. I lived in a large poly household as a slave for several years, bottomed, been in a couple D/s relationships, and last, but not least, I have been owned by Master for 11 years as of February 1, 2014. Looking at all that….I am not sure how it makes me feel, but I do know I  feel I am always growing and learning even though I have been doing this a long time.

Many things have changed over the years. But I have always enjoyed exploring and discovering new ways and new perspectives. I think is it amazing to have had the opportunity to do so much, see life around me, experience amazing moments and through it all still keep seeing things in a new way and learning more about life and myself each day. I hope that part of me never dies. Because for me, life is about growing into the person you were meant to be and seeing, learning and growing helps you get there. I am thankful that I am here thinking, writing, and discussing and learning how to be me and seeing the world around me.

Things I like…
coloring books and crayons, hands around my throat, collecting quotes, being slapped over and over until my cheeks burn, ruined mascara from tears, baking, reading, Buddhism, green beans, purple, suffering for him, anything by Joss Whedon, feeling his fist hit my flesh and his boot kicking me, Alice in Wonderland, Carbon Leaf, typography, Frida Kahlo, Paulo Coelho, autumn, summer rain, art history, hoods, fresh pineapple, cookbooks, Eat Pray Love, tea, thrift stores, tight rope bondage cutting into my flesh, everyday gratitude, domestic service, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, feeling broken, battered and bruised, Asian food, progressive politics, museums, the word yes

I am…
a mixed media artist, passionate, serious, strong willed, emotional, open-minded, procrastinator, loyal, shy but outspoken and just a complex mix of things that shouldn’t go together.

I try to live my life to the fullest…laughing often, living passionately and loving deeply.
peace & serenity,
