The article about being thankful for acts of self-love is rich beyond words. You beautifully describe the many elements of sensate focus involved in mindful self-loving. This deliberate, slow approach to self-pleasuring unfolds into an attitude of blissful gratitude. I can see how communion with nature and the spiritual energy of the universe happens with the grateful self-loving. I will reread this article over and over again and take a deep breath and thank your for sharing it with RPM and beyond.
