My Favorite Word...a quick stream-of consciousness evaluation of the word BOUND...
BOUND meaning a confinement.
BOUND meaning a predicament.
BOUND meaning a promise.
I just realized what a powerful word BOUND can be. So diverse is its meaning. It isn't just about a tangible situation, but also what each of those situations represent.
Dymion often finds himself bound in chains. Bound in cuffs. Bound in ropes. Bound any other creative way I can find to limit his movement and remove his control. Yes, that is really hot, but he and I also share this magical verb in other ways:
BOUND by love.
BOUND by commitment.
BOUND our life together.
To be BOUND is such a huge part of a 24/7 D/s lifestyle. BDSM is so deliciously symbolic of the ties that bind any relationship. Yep, one cannot deny the multi-dimensions of our kind of kink.
So, in summary, I dig the word BOUND and all it represents. Three cheers for Selena's new favorite word! Here is wishing we all find ourselves BOUND in the most delightful and meaningful ways.
