I have loved having so much time over the holidays to think about my submission and about our relationship. I have had the time to contemplate where we are and where we might go next, both in the near and in the more distant future. I would like to say that I have spent time each day, naked and free, perched high on this vantage point while I thought about it all, but in truth, that has only happened once. In reality, I was too nervous to fully enjoy the beautiful view and I wasn’t so much thinking about my submission as deeply adsorbed in it.
As I head back into the start of a new academic year, I am feeling really positive about where we are and where we are going re our D/s. I know that there will be an adjustment this week to being back at work which will take more planning than the one I made when I shifted to being at home for the holidays, but I feel assured in the knowledge that we have been here before and that it will be fine. I know that HL will manage me into the new routine and then at the weekend we head off to Kinkfest for some learning and fun, so things are looking pretty exciting.
This is a beautiful image, and your skin stands out from the lovely landscape.
I love this.
Why thank you – that is very kind 🙂
Beautiful photo! I head back to teaching this week as well…time to reconcile the me who has to be in charge at work and the submissive me at home. Wishing you both well!
I know that feeling of reconciliation only too well. Good luck to you 🙂
Amazing image. Such a wonderful view and the scenery isn’t bad either x x
Thanks. I am sure you will have been there before 🙂
A very calm, peaceful image
Thank you 🙂
Superb view made more so by your presence …. naturally beautiful and calm. Thank you for sharing
Thanks sweet – I was starting to get into it by then 🙂
Contemplation is always good – i very much suffer from sensory overload, need silence x
Yes I do know that feeling and I think that I am getting worse with age 🙂
Such a beautiful natural image…subject and background compliment each other perfectly!!
Thank you. One thing we do have around here is scenery ?
Making it an even more beautiful view!
Awww thank you ?
Yay Kinkfest here we come!
Whoop whoop ❤️
Best of luck with your new school year!! There is something so freeing about being outside in nature naked! As usual you look stunning. I haven’t had many chances myself to do the nude outdoor thing this year but hoping to have some chances in the last few weeks of summer
Thank you Michael on both counts. And I hope that you get some chances soon ?
Such a beautiful image – I love how soft your skin looks against the rough looking landscape x
Oh thank you. I am quite pale so it always looks more of a contrast I think. 🙂
Incredible photo! I hope you were able to enjoy the moment. I also taught for several years before a career change. I know the feeling of losing your freedom as a new year begins. And this isn’t because of hating our job. No, it’s because we love our job teaching…and knowing that because we love it, it will own us and consume us (interesting thought for us submissiveness!). Anyway, I thought I’d combine a comment from this post as well as SoSS #4 and say…I think I speak for many of it all your readers when I say that we read your blog for your depth. Not your quantity. Go and teach with all your heart. Be all you can for HL. We’re just happy to share that journey with you.
From one sub teacher to another… ?
Aww that is really lovely – thank you. You make a good point about it owning and consuming us. I hadn’t thought of it like that before.
Such a happy post with such a glorious image!
Thank you 🙂
This would certainly recharge my batteries in between classes! Great composition, beautiful textural contrasts and such a peaceful free mood, you look beautiful.
Aww thanks Kis. I am laughing at the thought of you nipping out between class to peel off. Don’t think we’d get away with that at school! Life drawing anyone?
Exciting things ahead, and you do look very sexy and relaxed, even though your words say you weren’t 😉
Thanks Rebel. I think I get into it but at the start I am so worried someone will see me and I will get in trouble ?
Beautiful. Not only does this image match the title perfectly, but it also feels really calming and chilled out 🙂
Thank you Floss ?
I am glad you’ve had time to think and that things are positive. I know in a few other posts you’ve expressed how unsure you are. Too bad you couldn’t enjoy that view when you were there. You certainly look lovely perched there like a pretty bird.
Aww thank you. I think I shift quite easily between feeling positive and feeling anxious. I try to keep to the plus side though ?
A beautiful image, both of the view and of you. So glad you have taken some time this summer to reflect on your submission and that you have had time for you. Good luck with the new school year xx
Thanks. I feel a bit worried about going back but that is always the way I think. 6 weeks off is quite a long time ?
Ohhh this shot is beautiful! What a serene landscape.
Thank you. We are lucky with the scenery. ?
Stunning view! And the landscape’s not too bad either ??
Thanks tabitha ?
Absolutely glorious you and the scenery!
Awww you are always so kind Indie ?
Absolutely beautiful, I’d love to be up there everyday!
Wooo hooo for kink fest, not long to go now!
Ahhh. A group photo. How cool would that be? Yes I am getting excited and nervous now. Counting down …
