“Fallen leaves lying on the grass in the November sun bring more happiness than the daffodils”

December 1st, 2010

In November, we celebrated Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving, and a whole buttload of other holidays.  For me, it was a month of introspective thought, and peaceful contentment.  M and I have gotten along better this month than we have in years.  And we seem to have fallen into a comfortable routine that helps to keep us both upbeat, and looking at the future with hopeful eyes.

I know I’ve been saying that a lot.  And I realize that, true to form, we’ll probably slip back into bickering and not understanding each other temporarily.  It seems to be how we learn.  And ya know… That’s what it’s all about.  Shit happens.  Learn from it.


Shit I did on other people’s websites:

This month, on Submissive Guide:

I know this section’s supposed to be about my shit.  But I didn’t have anything on Submissive Guide, and there’s some kick ass stuff going on over there, right now! For example, Luna and her dude are working on some pretty kick ass websites for those of us of the kinky persuasion.  In particular, they’ve currently got a free blogging site, like LiveJournal and Blogger, in BETA, just for us kinky folk, called Kinky-Blogging.com.  It uses the a WordPress.org platform, and appears fairly easy to navigate.  So if you were thinking about starting a blog, but were hesitant about putting it on one of the regular free sites because of content, drop Luna a line at subguide (at) gmail.com, and she’ll get you an invite code so you can get started.

This month, on Fearless Press:

Other people’s shit:

This month in history:

  • November 26th, 1789 was the first American holiday, having been proclaimed Thanksgiving Day by President George Washington.  We’ve since begun celebrating Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of every November.
  • On November 9th, 1872, a fire broke out in the basement of a warehouse in Boston.  Because of numerous contributing factors, such as popular architecture, and over-insuring of buildings, the fire found the perfect place to spread easily and quickly to 776 buildings over 65 acres, causing about $73.5 million in damages, which is a lot even these days!
  • Known to many as Veterans Day, Rememberance Day, President Woodrow Wilson declared November 11th Armistice Day on November 11th, 1919.  It was originally intended as a reminder of what we achieved on the eleventh day, in the eleventh hour, in the eleventh month of 1918, when the Armistice was signed and ended the major hostilities of World War I, and has since become about celebrating all who’ve put their lives on the line to protect our freedom.
  • Again, on November 9th, in 1965, when a safety relay was mistakenly set too low, over thirty million people were without power for about twelve hours in Ontario, Canada and Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, New York, and New Jersey in the United States.
  • Here’s something I was present for, and old enough to remember.  I can’t remember where I watched the inauguration, but I lived in Virginia on November 7th, 1989, when Lawrence Douglas “Doug” Wilder became the first black governor elected into office, and the second to serve, in the United States.
