So yesterday, as I was hanging out with the Mistress and the Damsel, talking about various things, a new word escaped my mouth …

Smittenness (n): the state of being enamored or charmed …

Because of everything else that’s going on in my life right now, I find that my emotions are bouncing all over the place.

I’m getting crushes left and right … and of course, I’m not sure how much of that is just straight up lust and how much is actually sincere … and since most of my closer friends are women, this is not helping things. I really don’t want to do anything to jeopardize my friendships.

So for the time being, I’m not pursuing anything except healing.


  1. There was a time when… things were… “Ugly” for me. I remember that time when the emotions came back. I remember them being overwhelming, and not knowing what to do (with them/about them). As I remember it was the beginning of the “Thaw” in the walls that surrounded me…. Not sure if any of this applies… but it was definitely the point I was over the hump. I hope there are many great days ahead for you.
