Cuddle Party

Everyone needs contact comfort sometimes.  Not everyone has ample opportunities for this in facetime.  So here is a chance for a cuddle party in cyberspace.  Virtual cuddling can help people feel better.

We have a
cuddle room that comes with fort cushions, fort frames, sheets for draping, and a weighted blanket.  It has a basket of grooming brushes, hairbrushes, and styling combs.  A bin holds textured pillows. There is a big basket of craft supplies along with art markers, coloring pages, and blank paper.  The kitchen has a popcorn machine. Labels are available to mark dietary needs, recipe ingredients, and level of spiciness. Here is the bathroom, open to everyone.  There is a lawn tent and an outdoor hot tub. Bathers should post a sign for nude or clothed activity.  Come snuggle up!

New verses in "The Inner Transition"

Based on an audience poll, the poem "The Inner Transition" has 28 new verses.  Stylet enjoys a hot meal and then melts down over the puppies.

I'm happy to see this storyline advancing, because there are a bunch more Stylet poems available, and [personal profile] siliconshaman has some stories that will get posted as more of these appear.  \o/

Poetry Fishbowl Report for November 7, 2017
