Gay Pride with Rocket Dog

The Gay Pride Parade for NYC kicks off at 12:00 Noon.
Begins at 36th and 5th and ends at Christopher and Greenwich Streets.

The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.

dievca isn’t planning to join the Parade, but she will be wearing something “Rainbow” in support:


How’s the weather?

M.
Starfished nude on the bed.
No covers and just a fan moving the air.
Wafting it past my moist skin, causing my nipples to pucker.
It’s hot in the City.

Didn’t look so good…

At 12:00 Noon.
It was coming down pretty heavy.

Parade started at 1:00 pm – rain or shine.
Apparently Mermaids don’t melt.
At 4:00 pm?
Gorgeous…


In honor of the Coney Island Mermaid Parade

Water

by Robert Lowell
 It was a Maine lobster town—
each morning boatloads of hands
pushed off for granite
quarries on the islands,

and left dozens of bleak 
white frame houses stuck
like oyster shells
on a hill of rock,

and below us, the sea lapped
the raw little match-stick 
mazes of a weir,
where the fish for bait were trapped.

Remember? We sat on a slab of rock.
From this distance in time
it seems the color
of iris, rotting and turning purpler,

but it was only 
the usual gray rock
turning the usual green
when drenched by the sea.

The sea drenched the rock
at our feet all day,
and kept tearing away 
flake after flake.

One night you dreamed
you were a mermaid clinging to a wharf-pile,
and trying to pull
off the barnacles with your hands.

We wished our two souls 
might return like gulls
to the rock.
 In the end, 
the water was too cold for us.

Would you spend $$$ on shorts?

dievca saw a pair of shorts she fell in love with (gallery at the bottom).
Yes, they were on the runway – but they are a serious investment.
dievca bought her last pair of shorts three years ago…

Here’s some of her “go to” shorts and what they cost…
…should she make the investment?

Alice & Olivia Suede Shorts, dievca paid $60.00 Loehman’s

Organic by John Patrick Shorts, dievca paid $40.00 Barney’s Warehouse Sale

Current Elliott Button Front Jean Shorts, dievca paid $150 ShopBop

Free People Camo Cargo Shorts, dievca paid $35.00 MyHabit.com

Marissa Webb “Marie” lace-up shorts in olive $398, at IfChic


What does it mean?

A biker?
(with all that hardware blowing in the wind?)
Weight-bearing exercise?
(only on one side?)
Someone who loses their keys?
(can you find them?)

Look, dievca mentioned she likes being chained, but even she was boondoggled by this one…
(actually, look up close, it is quite artful.)


Fetish? All in your definition…

fet·ish
ˈfediSH/
noun
1. a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc.

dievca and Master have had talks about BDSM and fetishes.
dievca made the statement that she loves to be connected, via a chain or restraints and she thought that the desire for connection was a “fetish” (there is even a flag below)

Master disagreed.
Master’s definition of a fetish comes from past submissives He connected with along the way. His point was that being chained was not “needed” by dievca. Being restrained was not necessary for the relationship to exist or proceed. It is just something dievca enjoys very much. But dievca really enjoys changing it up, too — she doesn’t need her restraints to “get off”. Master had connected with some people who had to do the same thing in the same pattern to be fulfilled.  It was not His thing.
“diversity, dievca, diversity” — hmm, maybe that is Master’s fetish…

These musings were prompted because dievca was looking up the date for the Pride Parade in NYC (June 25th, 2017 9:00 am) and a side bar on the website offered some flags:
