 That wild twisted wind

It reeled me into despair

It hunted, it caught.

Talking dirty (A) Advice

Talking dirty? To put this in context, see the first post in this series of how this began.

This is by the interesting, often controversial and sassy Mae West (1893 -1980):

 

Mae West

“A man can be a great lover, but no matter how well he performs, sex won’t compensate for personality, intelligence, consideration, and whatever else you may be looking for.  You may think you’re in love when the passions of sex get hold of you, but if you didn’t love the man before, you won’t love him after.  Like him, maybe – but not love him!

 

 

Noting the era when this came about… I figure this must now apply to woman too…?  And what happens if sex came before the love?  

Your thoughts?

 

Till next time,

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – A A Milne

Silver Threading’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday – A A Milne

Ah, the author of Winnie-the-Pooh as  I know him… I surrounded my children with Winnie, Piglet, Eeyore and friends from the Hundred Acre Woods because his writing connects on different levels.

Perhaps this is a reason why writers write…?

In the end

pen writing

In the end there is You and I
On those lonely nights there was always You
The light that shone my way forward
The inspiration that brought my smiles
My measure of time in You
 
When the cold light of day intruded
I am still amazed by You
Your clarity in the dizzy heights
Your faith in the remoteness of space
Your love in the connection of time
 
Without You and I, there would be none
My heart without rhythm
My mind without wonder
My spirit without flight
My soul without expression.
 
In the end, there is You and I
Meeting in quiet embrace
You whisper ‘you are’
And I know You are
This is enough.

Talking dirty (A) Acting

Okay, I’ve got to be honest, this isn’t what you think it is. In fact it wasn’t what I thought it to be either.

The first paragraph to the ‘Introduction’ of ‘Talking Dirty’ by Carole McKenzie says:

“The interpretation of sex and sexual pursuits seen as harmless to some is sure to be condemned as an outrage to others. Sex is promoted everywhere.  No longer hidden and forbidden, it is now direct and often leaves nothing to the imagination.”

So I ordered ‘Talking Dirty’ expecting a sociological study of the evolution of ‘talking dirty’.  Truly!  Instead I get a collection of quotes, sayings etc.. Goes to show how much attention I paid to the blurb before I hit the ‘Buy’ button…but that’s another story.  Basically I’ll read anything.

Anyway… I am having an entertaining time with this book, so I figured… hey, why not share?

I will present to you quotes from this book, based on topics organized in alphabetical order.

So here’s the first ‘take-out’ from the book – talking dirty in Acting:

livelovelaugh

“Acting is not very hard.  The most important things are being able to laugh and cry.  If I have to cry, I think about my sex life.  And if I have to laugh – well, I think of my sex life.”          

Glenda Jackson, British Labour Party political and former actress.

Now that was not so bad, was it  🙂 ?

Transformed

In the embrace of words
I belong
Valued, understood
 
In the voice of acceptance
I relate
Assured, respected
 
In the vision of beauty
I am seen
Honoured, transformed
