dievca is feeling reborn in her submission. The Spring Equinox and ‘Worm’ Supermoon have jump started her closet clear out and renewal of presentation outfits for Master.
she is feeling the call to serve her Dominant.
Come slowly – Eden!
Come slowly – Eden!
Lips unused to Thee –
Bashful – sip thy Jessamines –
As the fainting Bee –
Reaching late his flower,
Round her chamber hums –
Counts his nectars –
Enters – and is lost in Balms.
Emily Dickinson, "Come slowly - Eden!" from (02138: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, ) Source: The Poems of Emily Dickinson Edited by R. W. Franklin (Harvard University Press, 1999)
The equinox will arrive at 5:58 p.m. ET on today, less than four hours before the full supermoon. In the Northern Hemisphere, the equinox is the official start of spring, but in the Southern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of autumn.
March’s full moon is sometimes called the “worm moon,” because according to folklore tradition, it occurs at a time when the frosty ground is melting and earthworms start to emerge.
The moon reached its closest point to Earth on Tuesday at 3:47 p.m. ET, but the moon won’t be full until Wednesday at 9:43 p.m. ET. The moon is usually about 240,000 miles away from Earth, but at perigee this month, it will come within about 223,300 miles of our planet, according to NASA
But what is an equinox? It’s the year’s first “equal night,” meaning that on Wednesday, we Earth-dwellers will see about 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.
On the equinox, the Earth will also begin to tilt so that the North Pole gets more sun, making it spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the southern. It officially “marks the turning point when daylight begins to win out over darkness,” according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
With moving, dievca has combed her closets and taken items to resale (Buffalo Exchange), dropped items at Goodwill and Housing Works and listed items on eBay. Whew! if it sounds exhausting…it was exhausting~
And then Spring/Summer arrived…and dievca went into overdrive to refresh her closets. She bought 14 items and was thinking about the rest:
Is she going to keep it all? dievca is not sure – she has her receipts, but she got rid of 10 + items from her closet and is promising you all that she will remove 5 more, before she keeps anything.
Please note that she was holding on to Spring/Summer Clothes which were 7+ years old….a clear out and revamp was needed.
Did you need to do a clear out? Any suggestions of “keepers” for dievca?
Did you note there wasn’t much black? Those patent leather Puma shoes are navy….
(and if you want to know what she bought – just ask)
