I need some Fifty…and an editorial.

I don’t think an explanation is necessary as to why…but I need some Fifty today. An editorial follows.

Here are just a couple of quickies…altho the words Fifty and quickie have no relationship to each other at all 😉

These are all taken from Fifty Shades Darker by E L James-

“So help me God, Anastasia, if you don’t eat, I will take you across my knee here in this restaurant, and it will have nothing to do with my sexual gratification. Eat!”

” Appearances can be deceptive,” he says quietly. “I’m anything but fine. I feel like the sun has set and not risen for five days, Ana. I’m in perpetual night here.”

“Do you know how much you mean to me?” he breathes against my ear.  “No,” I gasp. He smiles against my neck, and his fingers curl around my jaw and throat, holding me fast for a moment. “Yes you do. I’m not going to let you go.”                           I groan as he picks up speed. “You are mine, Anastasia.” “Yes, yours,” I pant.  “I take care of what’s mine,” he hisses and bites my ear.  I cry out.  “That’s right, baby, I want to hear you.” He snakes one hand around my waist while his other hand grasps my hip, and he pushes into me harder, making me cry out again. And the punishing rhythm starts. His breathing grows harsher and harsher, ragged, matching mine. I feel the familiar quickening deep inside. Jeez again!

I am just sensation. This is what he does to me- takes my body and possesses it wholly so that I think of nothing but him. His magic is powerful, intoxicating. I’m a butterfly caught in his net, unable and unwilling to escape. I’m his…totally his. “Come on, baby,” he growls through gritted teeth and on cue, like the sorcerer’s apprentice I am, I let go, and we find our release together.

***An editorial***

I would like to take a moment to thank E L James for writing such a fabulous series of books.  I hope that her success continues in any endeavor she undertakes.  She has my full support and friendship.

I have no understanding of public meanness or harassment.  I witnessed a lot of that yesterday. I  saw a lot of hypocrisy as well.  It was deeply offensive and disturbing to me. I was also saddened to see the amusement by some in relation to the venom and vileness that was spewed.

Some people will choose to keep silent publicly for various reasons,  and I have no problem with that. In all good conscience  I cannot. I will not engage in verbal battles with anyone even though that is sometimes very difficult for me to do, however I see no good that will come from doing it.  This is where I will say what I need to.

If you don’t like a particular book then don’t read it, or buy it, or recommend it. Simple. Easy. Honorable. Let it end with that.

Last thoughts- It’s so easy to get sucked into drama. I know I have on more than one occasion. I guess we all pick and choose our own battles. I am by no means a perfect person. My faults and flaws are many. I’m working on doing better, on becoming a better person. Awareness is the first step in that process.

Another person whom I respect and admire a great deal talks often about being kind. Sometimes that seems so hard to do, but I am trying to live that philosophy. I believe the world would be a better place if we all did.  I also believe that positivity breeds positivity, and that it’s a choice we make. It’s easy to get bogged down in negativity. It happens to me less frequently than it used to because now I choose to be the glass half full girl. I don’t look at the world through rose colored glasses, but there are things in life that are beautiful and meaningful. I don’t want to forget that. I don’t want you to forget that.

I’m not usually a politically correct type of person. I struggle mightily with silly things like salutations, so that I don’t offend someone with my friendliness. I’m a hugger by nature. I always have been and will continue to be.  So this is me…hugging all of you.

  1. Beautifully said my dear. I commend you. 🙂

    You know I am a hugger too, so in return–



  2. Beautiful words, darling one. We all should try to be kind to each other. Nothing good comes out of hate.
    Again, I’m looking forward to reading E L James books and congratulations to her on her success.
    And since I’m a hugger too- ((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))

    Your words express my own feelings and thoughts perfectly as well as the way I choose to live my life these days! Beautifully written.

      Thank you for this comment. I cannot begin to tell you how much it means to me. I’ve never shared this before but I took a lot of flack for this post. I even received a few rather violent threats via emails and on another blog as well. Clearly, I will always speak my mind when I feel the need to, but it makes it even more worthwhile knowing that I said what others wanted to. (((((hugs)))))

        This makes me so very sad that you were attacked in such a way. I cannot comprehend why people feel compelled to act like that. I’m sure that even in my 48 years I am immensely naive.

        Are these people jealous? What do they think the “issue” is? No one is forcing anyone at gunpoint to read or buy. That seems pretty straight forward to me. What value do you bring to your life by belittling someone or something? Why such rage? Can you imagine what some of these people could accomplish if they channeled this force, these feelings into something positive?

        I have been the target of a similar hatred in the past, and it hurts. I will forever shake my head at purposeful hurt.

        I too feel so naive sometimes. It’s incomprehensible that peeps acted and continue to act the way they did/do. The only motive I can come up with is jealousy. Some peeps just can’t stand it when someone else is successful.
