Wind Tunnel Dreams

Wind Tunnel Dreams: Wire and Words

prompt: while your lips are still red

The ultimate power exchange,
life for death for life -
you are cold,
winter twilight,
when you come to me.
When we first kiss.
When you pull me under -
beneath you in so many ways,
I know,
my lord and master.
When you pull me under,
my vision fading to grey,
the whole word gone distant,
even the pain.
When I hover near the brink of death,
and every shallow halting breath
is crystal in my throat.
When you fill with my life,
sweet pulsing copper-tinged self,
you grow warm to my chill,
and I grow desperate
to feel that heat -
and you pull free, eyes wild -
please, I whisper,
kiss me.
while your lips are still red.

Wire by Kyth and words by me; please tip your local storyteller. Tipping is rewarded. :)

Tew's Day

Hello to new reader elizabeth_black!

I really overstressed my legs yesterday, but I had fun doing it. Today, I'm taking it easy - slept in and have been generally lounging about. Tonight's the Flogging Molly concert, and I need to be able to dance!

Daily Science
A team of physicists from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) and the Madrid Institute of Advanced Studies in Nanoscience (IMDEA-Nanociencia) has created the “quantum stabilized atom mirror,” the smoothest surface ever, according to a recent article in Advanced Materials. The innovation is already being used in the design of the world's first atomic microscope.</i>

Going out for lunch with Gwyn. Going to Flogging Molly with Gwyn. In between, who knows?

BARCC Gala for Change!

There will be a gala! I will wear a fancy dress and everything!

The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center’s Champions for Change Gala recognizes people and organizations who have made exceptional contributions to the fight against sexual violence. Our 35th Anniversary Champions for Change Gala will be held on October 22, 2008 at the Seaport Hotel in Boston. Please join us as we celebrate 35 years of extraordinary accomplishments in healing, advocacy, and leadership!

Tickets are $150 (volunteers get in free); I know you may not be able to afford that, but if you can, I'd love it if you came along. Just tell them you want to be seated with Shira.

If not - opportunities for corporate sponsorship and advertising in the program abound! Check out that link! Tell your employers!

And thank you for all that you do. Blogathon sponsors, the money we raised makes a huge difference; BARCC's still abuzz about it. You rock.

(I need a BARCC/rape crisis counselor/warrior for social change icon.)
