Today is Easter - an anniversary of the day that Jesus (also known as Yeshua) died on the cross. Early on, when I was introduced to the Baptists, I never could truly resonate with the idea that Jesus died for our sins, as there were too many holes that never felt right. What was not in dispute was that Jesus's existence is significant, and recorded in many religious stories of all different walks; and that his death was even more significant.

This is a great article that talks about monogamy and polyamory, and that certain aspects of it hit rather close to home for me. When I read this article, there was a prolonged emotional release I experienced while sitting at this air conditioned coffee & doughnut shop using their free WiFi.

Albuquerque for the past 10 months has served as a self-paced training and practice ground for me - a gossamer mistress who in an instant places people, situations, venues, words, pictures, music, and love in one's path with the ultimate intent of helping one grow. This mistress knows for all time one's capabilities, tendencies, likely responses, quirks, strengths, and constitution; and everything happens right on cue; while being at utmost patient, loving, and accomodating to our free will. What has the gossamer mistress been showing me so far? Getting in touch with my emotions - she was eager to bring them forth as I had much potential of development in this area, and have shut them out very strongly for a long time.
