>Greetings all, my name is DK… although in truth you’ll see & hear me addressed as anything from Kat to Kay or even Karl, leathermgoddess to daddy, Sir to Ma’am, b*tch to b*st*rd, depending on just how much the speaker loves me and how our particular relationship has evolved.
That’s me, that mugshot over there on the right.
The necklace is a gold pentagram and a silver/black bdsm triskelle, together on a black leather thong. The tattoo (I have many) visible on my left arm is my ‘daddy band’, a solid black band with my moniker ‘DK’ embedded nice and neatly, slim and subtle. I suspect that singular tattoo deserves an entire explanatory post of it’s own, some time soon.
The hair is recent, courtesy of a dear friend Carole, who quaked more than a little at entirely lopping off my extraordinarily long red locks. Unsurprising really, since I’ve not had it short in 15 years, in fact not quite this short since I was 13 years old. It’s taking some getting used to, not so much for me, but for all those around me who are used to my hair being a pretty fundamental part of my identity for so long. It was simply time my hair matched, well, the me I seem to have become.
I turned 40 this year, retrospectively a pretty defining event for me apparently, as so much alternately fell into place and simultaneously changed. At the notorious party, I found myself surrounded by many wonderful people, all gathered to celebrate this anniversary of birth of mine and who and what I was… and yet I proceeded to look around at my life, those within it, my own place within the wider scheme of things and of course ultimately, began to examine things somewhat closer to home.
That’ll do for a brief introduction, yes I know, that leaves far more questions than answers. However I’ve an inkling that this might finally be the place where I can sit, relax, and write freely. It’s certainly intended to be somewhere I can finally begin to put down my personal thoughts, opinions, explorations and future growth.
I look forward to discovering if that is in fact, the case.
Pleasure to meet you, dear diary.
