a gull flying for lift

Lift her up where she belongs

Strong men – men who are truly role models – don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.~Michele Obama

Amazing words from an very moving speech. It made me think about Molly. It may not surprise you to know that I think rather highly of her. As I have said before and I will say it again, she is the talent, I am just talent adjacent.

She is so very talented that it often takes my breath away. Her photo skills are out of this world. She has an eye for composition and her skills as an editor improve every single day. And her writing, oh she writes words that move me in so many ways. Really I am lucky that I have some skills that she doesn’t, just think where I would be if she could flog herself.

It is my job as her Dom to encourage her to be the best that she can be. I know she often has doubts about so many things. That is when it is my turn. To point out what she has accomplished and how great she is, as a parent, as an artist (yes, I think what she creates is art) as a sub and as a woman. I want her to succeed and I will do all that I can to help her with that, even if it does mean I am called Mr Moore from time to time.

She is always there to offer help and suggestions with my work too. I know that her point of view will often cause me to think in a way that might have never occurred to me. The poor woman has to listen to me discuss arcane and odd technical problems and often has useful insights that lead me to a solution.

We are a team, and to be frank she is the best part of the team. I do my very best to live up to the version of me that I see in her eyes and she is unfailingly there to help me when I stumble or stray from that vision.

I was luck enough to get to marry an amazing woman and I look forward to showing the world just how lucky I am to have found her. I better stop now, before she realizes that she could have done better.

I am damn sure that I could not have.

P.S. by Molly. He talks himself down when it comes to his own talents. One of the things he is very good at is teaching and guiding. Not everyone can do that and it is a wonderful skill to have. He does make me the best person I can be, but that is also a huge strength on his part. When it comes to tech stuff this man is quite frankly the best. He never gives up, he will make it work, tech is his bitch because he makes it so. I am far from perfect. He is far from perfect but together we are perfect.

  1. I was incredibly moved by Michelle Obama’s speech and this is my nightly email to my Dom, Dark Horizan, which will also be going on my blog:

    I watched Michelle Obama’s Enough is Enough speech and I found my voice. Three years of studying sexuality to help understand both why my sex drive came back as well as the mentality of my abuses and what is needed to change things, is finally paying off. While I’ve discovered that many more men in the kinky community understand respect and consent, there is a whole lot of vanilla men who just don’t get it. I’m spending a lot of time writing long messages to men on Facebook who say women are over-reacting and that “it really can’t be as bad as you all are saying”. But that’s just it. We all are saying it. Women I’ve known since high school are sharing their deeply hidden secrets. Not just a few either, a whole lot of them. In most cases, I’ve never heard these stories, and I’ve been shocked and saddened by them. One right after another keeps posting, “it happened to me too”, or “I’m a member of this club as well.” Maybe this is the catalyst we needed to enact change. Maybe we needed someone so bad and evil that it finally woke people up. I know it’s going to be an uphill battle for four reasons.

    1. Christians have had control over people’s thoughts, beliefs and actions for 15 years. Now, in this country, Christians are at a minority, at just 45% saying they are religious and Christian. This is going to make them fight even harder for their way of life, with the war on Christmas being a central theme. They still want to blame all of the world’s woes on Muslims, Atheists, Pagans and Gays.

    2. The white race in this country has always been the controlling, dominate race, who basically outnumbered blacks, Asians, Native Americans, Hispanics, and middle eastern races. That is changing, not only with more non-white citizens, but mixed race citizens growing fast.

    3. Straight people have also been the primary group, with LGBT being considered second class citizens, who were suppose to stay in the closet and was the butt of jokes and slurs. With Gay Pride and Same Sex Marriage legal, and relationships like polyamory becoming more main stream, that is shifting as well. Although there is still discrimination, gender identity is becoming more accepted.

    4. Men.. and this is the biggest one. Even before Christianity, in most societies, men made the rules and women were considered property, except for some cultures like the Norse, Celtic, some Asian, many African and a few Native American which were either equal in rights or female led. So basically 3,000 years of men being in charge. Since women had no rights and were bought and sold, men thought they had the right to use them as they wished. The Christian church adopted that and capitalized on it, making women sex slaves. Now, Master, you know this is completely different than the power exchange given by consent in BDSM. While you own me, it’s by my own choice, not because I was forced to do so by my father, society or the church. Unfortunately , the vanilla world just doesn’t get that. How much easier it would be if those who want to be Dominate could do so by consent with someone who wants to submit, instead of forcing it by demand. I’ve read dozens of articles that say kinky sexual relationships are healthier because of the high level of communication, respect and consent.

    Now you put all four of these together; white, Christian, straight men, with a sense of righteous entitlement, and you have Donald Trump and men like him who follow his every word. Unfortunately, you also have browbeaten women who gush about how wonderful he is because they have never been allowed to think for themselves. In everything I’ve read, from both sides, both pro-Trump and anti-Trump, it appears that women are voting for him because their father, husband or boyfriend is, and they either are told to do so or want to impress the man in their life.

    These men are not going to take a loss lightly. They will blame everyone from Hillary Clinton to Satan to gays to Muslims/Blacks/Hispanics to all women. And they will retaliate.. with using the guns that Trump has assured them they have the right to use on anyone they don’t like or who doesn’t agree with them, to assaulting women and girls and every other men, because they simply have the right to have sex with anyone they want. Trump wants to “punish” everyone; women who have abortions, media who say things that he doesn’t like, other countries by limiting imports of food and gas, and threatening other countries unless they bow down to Emperor Trump.

    Now if you were to come up and grab my pussy, I wouldn’t have a problem with that… at all!! But that’s because I have given myself to you. You have control over my body, my sexuality and my orgasms because I want that. But if Trump came up and tried that, he would have to have his tiny hands holding his tiny dick after I kicked him in the balls and shoved my cane up his ass.

  2. True love is so rare and hard to find! Its wonderful to read of your love, admiration and total devotion to each other in a world where no one seems to want to commit themselves to another person anymore. You’re both truly blessed.
