sometimes it’s impossible to fully prepare
I honestly do not have words to tell you people how important and relevant the Celebrating the Body Erotic workshop was for me in October. But one thing is certain, I was not prepared for it. I thought I was, but when it came down to it, I felt so very new, green to everything. And I’ve decided that it is not something that you can ever fully prepare yourself for. At least not the first time… You just have swallow your pride and do it. I know it sounds like a lot of money, but it is worth it. I didn’t think I would be ready again so soon, but with all the physical processing (Autumn, Crave, Erin) I am feeling very steady. With any luck, I will also cherish Delilah’s very fine company – she’s a very brave soul who always has my full undivided attention whenever I am in her presence. I’m sure she will enrich the experience.
