Scintillating in a world of darkness and half-kept lamps, continue to polish yourself so that your light can be clearly seen. -
Manners, protocol, and etiquette are all necessities at one point or another, in any lifestyle.
Let it be no surprise that such thing play a big part in the D/s world.
There are many of us who embrace them and incorporate them into our daily lives, but equally many who do not understand the basics of manners or the subtleties of correct protocol and etiquette. -
I fully understand that not everyone places as much importance on manners, protocols and etiquette as I do. Every individual is entitled to their opinion. I will hold neither undue judgment nor expectation of another individual who has not agreed to follow a certain social or behavioral rule.
No matter how much they may have forgotten or never even learned... Regardless of complacent individuals happy to settle with the way they always are... In spite of how lackadaisical social interactions have become...
I can not and will not allow myself to settle for a less involved, simpler, more convenient, and stagnant place. -
Clear and intentional behavior is more than formality and yet should be coupled with the formality of protocol if you expect to be understood and respected yourself.
I choose to be well mannered and particular about my life. My manners are a representation of respect, respect of self and respect for who I share time and space with.
This respect adds to the quality of my life, it fosters awareness, and helps me to remember to be a better me.
For me, manners, protocols, and etiquette are some of the strongest tools that brings that magic into everything else I do. From business, to the bar, to the bedroom, learn and use these tools of formality and respect.
What protocols and etiquette do I expect from someone submitting to such?
More on that later.

#NamasteEngland - Love makes you do strange things and sometimes the unconventional too.
#Good:- The temptation to sleep you get while watching the film and the rest depend on your theatre.
#Bad:- The movie isn’t bad! Bad is an understatement for such films, bad is still a good word. .
#MovieReview:- The Flim begins as a run-of-the-mill #love story, where boy meets girl, they fall in love and quickly get married. But, the problem arises when Jasmeet (#ParineetiChopra ) wishes to be a jewellery designer and Param (#Arjunkapoor) can’t help her out even though he wants to. He and his father have been sworn by Jasmeet’s granddad to not let her work. Even if you do come to terms with the regressive values of the characters, the "ho-hum" screenplay makes 'Namaste England' a lot tougher to sit through. The long-drawn first half of the film just doesn’t get moving. The #Interval brings an unexpected twist, but then the second half dives into over-the-top #Comedy and #Melodrama.The whole premise of Param not being able to get a visa is a little too light on logic. What makes things worse is the background score, which feels like it belongs in a campy 90s comedy. 'Namaste England' is shot in some beautiful locations across #India and #Europe [#London], but the exotic setting is let down by the predictable and uninspired writing. Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra had crackling chemistry in ' #Ishaqzaade ' (2012) and the duo still look great together, but their characters are so poorly crafted that even their best efforts can’t salvage the story. Parineeti, in particular, tries very hard to add some semblance of respect with her performance, but it just doesn’t work out. Alankrita Sahai, in a glamorous avatar, looks great on-screen, but her role doesn’t offer any chance to perform, either.The #music, lead by tracks like '#BhareBazaar,#Tu Meri and #Proper Patola , is far more entertaining than the film. 'Namaste England' has a lot of promise, but the film just isn’t able to shake off the ill-effects of clichéd storytelling. This one’s a classic case of love's labour lost.

This is my favorite Beatles picture I own. My folks gave it to me and said it came from some old magazine they bought like 30+ years ago. I got it framed. Sorry my camera/home has shit for lighting. I used the best filter I could to brighten.
