Dealing With Our Demons
I have known of Erica Scott for over a decade. I was a long time, but occasional, reader of SCSW.
I am not going to write a review of her new book Late Bloomers. Others with better word skills than I possess have already done that. I will just say that I found it an enjoyable read and commend it to you.
Erica and I have more a few intersections in our personal lives – similar parents being one thing in common. Not all of us had Ozzie and Harriet parents like Bacall did. As Erica relates her early life, I found it easy to understand the neuroses she has, having been down some of the same road.
Where we differ is that she has kept a journal and I have attention deficit disorder. While most of my life is blur, her recall is perfect. It’s a coin toss for me. Is recalling the details of childhood pain better or is it best to be blissfully ignorant of a large part of your past?
She makes reading even the darker parts of her life interesting. And she shows how embracing her spanking desires has helped her in several ways.
I had wondered about how her relationship with her love John worked. Now I know.
Some of her best advise was on the last page. For any spanko who may be reading this, do yourself a favor: Don’t question the whys and wherefores or over-analyze to death this thing we do. Just enjoy the hell out of it. Spanking is fun and for people like us, it provides a physical and emotional fulfillment that defies explanation.
That’s enough. Order her book. I think you will find it an enjoyable read.
