Aphrodite was born nubile from the sea

Self-censorship and Lies

Self-censorship is a lie to yourself;
one should never be afraid to say what you think. 

I am a firm believer in not allowing the approval, or disapproval, of others to influence what one believes, thinks, says, writes, or does.  I am also a liar, because today, yesterday, and for a few days / weeks / months before that I have not been true to my own beliefs.

My lies to you all are lies of omission, in that I am not prepared to tell you the whole truth about some things, and I am not prepared to tell you anything at all about some other things, and there are some things I will just completely deny.  It seems that everyone has dark secrets, and everyone lies without thought.

As this is by way of a confessional I will tell you why I’m making this admission.

Today I was going to publish one of a few completed posts that I have just decided I shall never publish.  These included;

  • Sex, Lust, and Whores.  Most women sell sex; most of them just don’t take money from everyone who wants them.
  • Masturbation and Fetishes.  Only boys masturbate, or so the myth goes, because a woman touching herself is immoral.
  • Love Wars.  Love and war, it seems, work by exactly the same rules.
  • Goddess of Sexual Love.  Sexual love is powerful, it can bring women to their knees.
  • Casual Sex and Immorality.  In an imperfect world you could fuck anyone and everyone without thinking about the consequences.

All the above posts I’ve irrevocably put into my trash were of a highly sexual nature, impinging upon the real truths of most interpersonal relationships.

The face is the mirror of the mind, and the eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.  ~  St. Jerome.

Some say that evaluation of the truth is not an absolute, but a matter of piecing together bits of information to form a picture.  And that most people’s idea of the truth is based on their preconceived ideas and prejudices.  All know is that, sometimes, the real truth is best left unsaid.

Postcards from Purgatory

She was Purgatory incarnate, promising Heaven and delivering Hell

~

every time I go back there is the same as the one before

every journey has me wondering why I desire her more

her hot breath of adoration a mere promise of scorn

Goddess of love incarnate, and yet she is a whore

beautiful, mysterious, wild and free

gods and men have enjoyed thee

 

Monochrome Monday ~ Carnal Goddess Incarnate

God may be in the details but the goddess is in the questions.
Once we begin to ask them, there is no turning back.

who comprehends her sexuality

call her Aphrodite, Hathor, or Venus

she is carnal love incarnate

 

Sunday Prayer

Goddess, if there is a Goddess, please listen to my prayer.

Please help me to cleanse my body, mind, emotions, and spirit of the poisons that have infected and tortured me.

Please help me to cleanse myself of all that is no longer necessary in my life.  Help me towards a new beginning.

Help me to make good decisions, especially concerning what should happen when I am not around.

it seems that she wanted a lover

and a regular guy wouldn’t do

Goddess’ Betrayal

in the curves of her form a hero found his wanton goddess

Aphrodite symbolises

a lover’s eternal choices

of feminine enchantments

exploiting sexual differences

intellectual harmony balances

emotions desired disharmonies

wants needs desires dreams lusts

pleasures’ ecstasies turned into dust

She’s Irresistible To Men

The women we’re not supposed to have are the most irresistible.

Some women are literally almost irresistible to some men, and if you’re a guy that’s scary…..  And usually the best thing you can do is get far away from her, as soon as possible.  I can practically guarantee you that if you find a woman irresistible you’re going to end up broken and burned and wishing you could forget her.  And you know what?  You never will.

Maybe I’ll live so long I’ll forget her.  Maybe I’ll die trying.  ~

The Lady from Shanghai

But what makes a woman irresistible to a man?  I’d like to say it depends, but mostly it doesn’t.  And it isn’t all about looks, although the way she looks is important.  Some of the things that can make a woman irresistible to a guy are;

  • She knows what she wants, and she’ll do just about anything to get it.
  • She has a sophisticated and cultured outlook on life, including her sense of humour, conversation, dress sense, makeup, and manners.
  • She’s direct, forthright, and down to earth, quite prepared to call a spade a fecking shovel if she needs to.
  • She is fit and healthy, preferably an ideal weight for her height, she has some muscle definition, and she knows how to walk well.
  • Sexually she’s not only damn good, she’s also passionate, adventurous, and funny.
  • She doesn’t spend all her time on social media when she is supposed to be with you.
  • She doesn’t ever flirt with other guys when she’s supposed to be with you.
  • She doesn’t expect you to get to know and like her family or friends.
  • She never, ever talks about her past and her ex lovers.
  • In some strange way she has that indefinable magic that makes her utterly charming.
  • She likes kissing you, and she kissed you first.

I was born when you kissed me.  I died when you left me.  I lived a few weeks while you loved me.  ~  Humphrey Bogart

And let’s face it…..  most women are irresistible to most men anyway, no matter what.

Some say that what a women likes most in a man is that he’s tall, funny, well-behaved, and attentive.  And that good manners go a long way to making a woman like a guy.  All I know is that money changes everything.

Aphrodite is the Goddess of beauty, desire, love, lust, pleasure, procreation, and sex

 

In classical sculpture Aphrodite was usually depicted naked

 

She’s always good when she’s so bad, always telling me such beautiful lies

 

 

Food on Friday ~ Apples

There is more to love and desire than just picking apples.

How boring one may think, a whole Food on Friday about apples!  Well, leaving aside that apples are one of the most interesting, nourishing, tasty, and healthy ingredients you could add to a dish ~ an apple is the most mystical and spiritual of fruits.

Myths about the apple being the ultimate symbol of love, sex, and sin go much, much further back than the Bible’s Adam and Eve.  The ancient Minoans had almost the same apple myth, and their civilisation goes back around 9,000 years.  Most appropriately we are now in the star sign of Libra, and if you know your Myths of Libra you will also know that this is the time of Aphrodite, and her fruit is the apple ~ well it would be, wouldn’t it?

So to begin this week, from Andrea at Cooking with a Wallflower we have apple cinnamon steel cut oatmeal.  Now I’ve never liked oatmeal, mostly because I hate milk.  But, this recipe appeals to me, and it uses almond milk ~ cool.

Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oatmeal

San Diego girl Averie Sunshine has this recipe for caramel apple sheet pan pancakes.  Ready in 10 minutes for breakfast or brunch, or a dessert…..  Oh Wow!  (Perhaps I’d make the pancake mix from scratch.)

Caramel Apple Sheet Pan Pancakes

Some combinations are just meant to be, and this is one of the very best.  From Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest we have apple butter and sage pork chops ~ perfect.

Apple Butter and Sage Pork Chops

Another main course, this time from Heather Christo, pasta with apples, bacon, sage, and chantrelle mushrooms ~ and this recipe is both gluten and dairy free.  Never mind that so much, it both looks and sounds delicious.  Apple and sage go so well together, and there is no truth in the rumour that apple is a female aphrodisiac…..  sage is a different matter all together.

Pasta with Apples, Bacon, Sage, and Chantrelle Mushrooms

Lets move along to dessert, or something for afternoon tea and from Todd and Dianne, the White on Rice Couple there’s this spiced apple coffee cake.  For me, this looks delicious.  It’s a recipe I’d like to try, even though I can’t bake for love nor money…..

Spiced Apple Coffee Cake

And now a drink for those of us ho don’t want to get absolutely hammered on scrumpy, Jessica Merchant at How Sweet Eats has a cool post entitled; how to make an apple cider shandy.  You know what?  I don’t touch booze anymore , but if I did, I’d make a beeline for this at parties.  Something else, you can cheat on this already alcoholic recipe and come up with something that’s almost as strong as scrumpy.

How To Make An Apple Cider Shandy

Finally for this week we have our recipe collection.  From Country Living Magazine 60+ easy and delicious apple recipes to make this season ~ and amongst this cornucopia there’s this simple and easy garden tuna salad sandwich.  You need not use white hot dog rolls if you want a healthier alternative such as a sprouted grain bread.
