Left Brain/Right Brain

Yesterday was an interesting day. One of the things I had to do was to update my bodywork bio and send that to Easton Mountain since I am directing Kinky Camp this year. As I wrote the bio I was reflecting on the mix of left and right brain that is my life.

The right brain is holistic. It is where intuittion comes from. I use my right brain during bodywork. The left brain is focused on solving problems. It’s where logic comes from. I use my left brain when I’m writing code for a website.

Yesterday was a perfect example of this left/right brain mix. I started the day with a phone call  on a website redesign. After this call I had to head over to south of market for a porn shoot. At this shoot, I tortured and milked a 20-something kid for 2 hours! I had him tied up and loved seeing him moan and whimper with delight (and a bit of torture too!) This shoot is for a new line of kink videos they’re working on. After the shoot, I came back home to see a client helping him reconnect with his erotic self. Nothing like helping a guy reconnect with Eros after milking the kid for a few hours! Whew! The I switched into my tech hat again and headed downtown to Taproot. I’ve been offering my web development skills pro bono to non-profits through Taproot and gave a presentation to a group of other volunteers on the web development project implications when using WordPress to develop websites. Yep, geeky indeed! After that I rushed back home to finish out the day seeing a bodywork client. I capped the evening off with a few slices of pizza and a glass of wine. Boy, talk about a left/right brain mix!

This mix of using both parts of me gives me balance. I can understand and appreciate multiple ways of looking at something. It also forces me to be present. Bouncing back and forth requires me to really focus on what’s going on in the present moment. It’s so important yet so hard to do. Living my life in this manner helps reinforce the power of simply being present.
