Learning about Life via Death

dievca was one of the few people at her Aunt’s funeral a couple of years ago.
Eleanor Rigby kept playing in her head.

Yesterday, dievca’s friend had a Memorial and Service to inter her ashes.

It was lovely. Friends of all ages and different phases came to celebrate. Siblings gave the realistic view of their sister with humor. dievca wore bright colors and listened with a smile. Her friend had set aside money for a buffet meal at a cafe across the street with an open bar. Great venue, good wine.

She was loved, is loved and will be remembered with love.

Why? What’s the difference between dievca’s aunt and dievca’s friend?

Her friend was open to new ideas, willing to try new things and try-on new viewpoints. She was able to accept change. She accepted people for who they are, not who she wanted them to be. She didn’t pass judgment. She stood up for what she felt was right and that would include the thought that all people should be treated fairly and equally. She gave in simple ways – nothing grandiose – an ear to listen, advice if asked, expertise if needed and company with silence, her time. Things that people truly need or want.

What dievca has learned:

Be yourself. Work to keep old friends and work to gain new friends. Enjoy life and share your Joy and knowledge. Mentor. Accept idiosyncracies and people/situations that make you step out and grow. Don’t stop moving. Life is to be experienced. not watched.


So you are clicking, is there a SPARK?


The stove is clicking and the electric spark is working.
click, click, click, click, click
Too bad it won’t turn off…
It’s a morning – dievca needs to get to work.
she doesn’t think that there is a gas smell~

All top pieces removed.
Stove surface wiped with a clean dry cloth.
Oven on a 350F to see if heat can evaporate any excess moisture.

dievca needed a functional outfit that could bounce back and forth between hot and cold temperature-wise. she shopped her closet for the Micheal Kors Sweater and Anorak and then got on a tear with the other aqua gear. Yes, it was a lot of color.  But dievca stood out and received many compliments with the unexpected, non-NYC, color scheme. (Note: she had her Rag & Bone jeans hemmed, no ripped hems…).


Satin Rainbow

Follow the Rainbow – for the Month of June.
LGBTIQA+ stands for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, asexual, ally and many other terms (such as non-binary and pansexual)”.

BDSM seems to be left on its own in the Letter Game — “K” for kink is a touchy subject as an addition to the acronym…Article from the Metro UK about it.

It’s a heavy topic and dievca cannot deal with it, right now (no extra bandwidth) …but she can enjoy the colors.

And if you are not feeling the satin — maybe Gucci will do~

off the bottom

releases energy

Learning about one’s self


Hmmm…dievca falls into this group…

Undergraduate and graduate women (N = 245) from a large midwestern university volunteered to complete nine self‐report scales and inventories. Thirty‐seven percent of the sample reported they had experienced nocturnal orgasm, and 30% reported having had the experience in the past year. The predictors accounted for a statistically significant amount of variation in each of the dependent variables: 33% of “ever experienced nocturnal orgasm,” 44% of “experienced nocturnal orgasm in the past year,” and 27% in the case of “frequency of nocturnal orgasm in the past year.” Positive attitudes toward and knowledge of nocturnal orgasms, sexual liberalism, and waking sexually excited from sleep (without experiencing orgasm) were the most important predictors of nocturnal orgasm experience.

Hold on Tight for the Ride


The vehicle is getting a little beat up – time to do some necessary maintenance.
dievca will be pausing to figuring out what more she can do.
It’s EARTH DAY.
