is that inspiration, or are you just happy to see me?

Submissions are still coming – and for a top like me, well, that’s music to my ears. I’m even beginning to write out a few of them. And though I did say the new contest entry deadline is August 7th, I plan on having at least one for you on Monday, the 6th, and then the other four finalists will follow.

(I may pick more than five of these to write up. They’re just all so damn good! But don’t hold me to that – it’ll depend on my time and motivation, too.)

A few notable recent submissions include: me in a fedora, with a rockabilly femme blowing me behind the counter at a diner, and a buxom blonde femme on the beach, with as much force & restraint as I can stand to include.

This is oh so much inspiration! Thank you, sincerely thank you, for all the ideas.

Let me clarify something from that last post – it sounded so depressing when I was looking over it this morning. And though I’ve been very emotional, and crying, I haven’t quite been sad, if you know what I mean. Maybe I’m pulling through the other side of something. I’m not sure what’s really going on or why I’m feeling so sensitive – I wish it was as easy as explaining that I’m PMSing and it will pass and change as soon as I start bleeding, but I actually just stopped bleeding, so that’s not it. Maybe it’s just all the changes, all the adjusting. It is taking some time to acclimate, to reach equanimity again.
