mechanchaos and I are now officially trying polyamory. So far so good: communication and mutual appreciation are both up!
Next step for me: learn how to meet people and relearn how to date. This should be interesting.
Those who know me know that I am as prone as any to get swept away by a tasty novel. Yet I know I don't post much about what I read. I am one to lose myself to a story for a time, to become another world, then to step back to my own with a few delicious memories ephemeral as dreams.
Today I step out of my hermitage to share a book I have not yet read:
I am excited by Catherynn M. Valente's (yuki_onna) new novel Palimpsest. Rather than asking you to believe what I think about it, I encourage you to sample it here. She paints a vivid world that I am eager to get caught up in, a sexually-transmitted city made multisensory by her partnership with s00j.
Now to save up so I can procure myself a copy...
Oh. Hey. Look.
I've been hermit-ing again.
Eh. It happens. It seems I'm currently making a habit of distilling what I think into its barest essences. The distillation process is lengthy.
In the meantime, here's some nice, (I'm warning you, you don't want to click here unless you're really, really interested in the inner workings of my private, perverted, sexual brain...), juicy ( masturbation TMI. )
I am serious. If you are squeamish about fat girls getting themselves off or about genderfuckery then this cut is not for you.
If you like good writing, short fiction, sensuality, and/or Japanese aesthetics, I suggest taking a peek at phinnia's journal. Her first fiction exploring the images and mood of a pair of cyberpunk lesbian geisha is exquisite, in my opinion. I am one, I suspect, of many interested in reading more about Nami and Mika...
