Not to diss people who are actually posting, but it seems light, lately. On the other hand, I haven't taken much time to write, either.

Disturbing dreams. Okay, not so much disturbing, as weird, and unusually not wanted. As in, stirring stuff I don't care to stir that might at other times be quite enjoyable tyvm.

Okay, so I'm going through an intentional period of non-sexuality. It's part of insulating myself while examining sexual history in the No Stones class. Now that we're actually working the workbook, I am of course being attacked no, plagued well, anyway, visited, by erotic dreams. They've been echoing my attitudes in an evolving way - - the one the other night was me from totally unconfused poly days; the one last night more from now, but with totally ingenous ideas about boundaries. The weird part about last night's dream was that I spent the dream with a good friend who has never been a lust object for me in waking hours. And here I was in the dream, being non-sexual in only the most literal of ways, and casting him in the role of a happily sexual archetypal dreamboat. With, to be frank, a most envious set of erm, anatomical endowments. :) The dream did include a heavy sense that I was depriving myself of
a very good time.

Frustrated myself in dreamland, but at least there was frosting. Cake frosting, no euphemism. Except in the most interpretive dream sort of sense, I suppose. When the dream is busily being explicit, it seems silly not to call a cake a cake, after all.

But as for symbols... Shallow, warm pool. Cake and frosting. Books, shelved, but in a new, unfamiliar layout. Okay. I suppose there was some symbology going on there.

Awake now. Dealing with the real, not the symbolic. Yay me.

What is the No Stones class? Is it through church?

No Stones is a women's sexual integrity class at The Mat at Quest. It's based on the book No Stones by Marnie Ferree, using a curriculum called LIFE Guide for Women based on a sexual integrity course for men developed by Life Ministries International

Wow, I'm really impressed. Seems like your church's ministry is very holistic. It's very refreshing.

I would absolutely LOVE to bring you to church with me sometime. We have worship services on Saturday and Sunday, as well as a midweek service on Wednesday, and the Mat on Friday nights. If you come with us on a Saturday, you can join us for dinner after the service - Flar & Tigger usually meet Critter and I somewhere after the 5:55pm service.

I'm kicking myself about not inviting more people this weekend, as the service was directly aimed at seekers - people searching for meaning. The message isn't out on the podcast yet, but you can get to it when it's up here.
