mia loves henry miller Letter 6 – He’s Married to a Mafia Princess, Crazy Cunnilingus, and Extreme Intoxication at the Palomino Club

(I am re-posting an old letter that has been greatly edited. I believe I posted this letter once before – years ago – on my blog – I’m getting ready to publish an e-book soon.  I hope that you will enjoy reading this particular letter if you are a new reader.  If you are a long time follower – be patient – I’m working on some new letters and will post some in the near future.)  Thank you. – Sincerely, Mia Malone-Jennings

“Miss Nin is not in the usual sense, trying to tell a story.  Her object is to reveal experience directly….she exalts love as the exclusive goal of living: and she can be fulfilled only by that absolute and total union with a lover which, intellectually she knows beyond the reach of human nature.  It is, of course, one of the oldest subjects in literature, for it springs from an awareness of the ultimate isolation of every individual, against which the human spirits permanently rebels.” –Lloyd Morris, New York Herald Tribune, March 12, 1950

 

Dear Henry,

Today, I’ve been painting relentlessly for an upcoming art show at a Minneapolis art gallery.  As I paint I have been listening to one of my favorite authors, J.D. Robb’s Timeless in Death, on audio book.  Lieutenant Eve Dallas kicks major ass! I listen to J.D. Robb’s books over and over again.  I never get tired of her talent and the person who reads her intriguing, ingenious detective series. Susan Erickson has a multi-talented voice!  She mesmerizes me, sucking me in, making me lose track of time as I paint away.  She is seriously iced!  Being seriously iced is a good thing in Lieutenant Eve Dallas’ gritty, crime-ridden realm and part of this futuristic world’s sci-fi lingo, which I love.

What I love most about the fictional character, Lieutenant Eve Dallas, is that she’s a survivor in life.  Eve’s my fictional hero.  She talks straight from the heart and gut. She is straight to the point.  Lieutenant Eve Dallas is direct and not afraid to be herself, regardless of her flaws.  I’m not afraid to live my life as myself, greatly in part because of Lieutenant Eve Dallas’ courage and inspiration, and her ability to use her unfortunate circumstances in her childhood, such as severe physical, psychological and sexual abuse, to her advantage as an adult.  I think Lieutenant Eve Dallas kicks some major ass in NYC in a fictional, futuristic world of 2059.

I’m going to be spending some long nights at the loft, painting, over the next few weeks.  I’ve already been here for several days.  In this letter I wanted to tell you about an awkward moment in my life, when I was dating, before meeting my second husband, Mr. C.  It was over fifteen years ago when I used to chat in the evenings online and I met this gentleman from Long Island, New York several months after I returned from California and experienced my adulterous affair with Mr. California Man.  I will name this gentleman, Mr. Mafia Man.  We began by conversing in an IRC chat room regularly and sending private emails back and forth.  We progressed rapidly into having very hot cyber-sex.  My fingers typed fast and furious over my computer keyboard, horny and lost in our cyber- sexual tension.  I was a single mother with two young children.  I didn’t have time to look for dates at nightclubs or singles events.  At the beginning of my separation from my ex-husband, cyber-sex felt safer for me to explore.  I love to arouse the male senses with erotic words.  It gives me quite the rush.  To me, it is great masturbation material.

Soon after Mr. Mafia Man and I discovered our comfort zone via online chat and private emails, we eased our way to talking on the telephone.  We conversed with each other almost every afternoon for several months.  I loved listening to his thick New York accent. He pronounced the words, coffee (cawfee) cigars (cigahs), and water (watah).  I remember back then how much I longed for New York City, even though visiting this magnificent city was then only a dream for me.  I felt intoxicated by Mr. Mafia Man’s deep, charismatic, straight to the point, heavily accented voice.  To me he was dreamy.  I envisioned him to be tall, dark and handsome, which made me extremely aroused and my black lace panties very wet.

Our telephone conversations, heavily laced with phone sex, eventually led to our first and only meeting in downtown Minneapolis, many months after we first communicated online.  I wore a classic, form-fitting, short black cocktail dress – the thick, black straps elegantly crisscrossing in the back.  I put my hair up in an elegant up do to accentuate my smooth bare shoulders.  Mr. Mafia Man was running late.  I grew impatient after ordering a Perrier on ice, waiting for this mystery man at an upscale hotel’s bar.  As the minutes ticked by, I pondered if this man was for real.  “What if this was all a joke – and I’m waiting for no one?” I thought, frustrated, impatient and bewildered.  Suddenly, my eyes narrowed in upon a tall, bulky gentleman walking into the fancy hotel bar, with a dozen white roses gripped in his hands.  I was a little dumbfounded because he wasn’t as handsome as I had imagined him to be.  But he did recall that I like white roses.  I had to give him a plus for thoughtfulness.  I thought Mafia Man’s appearance was a bit awkward and he appeared to me a bit like the cartoon character, Fred Flintstone.  Yet, he had a distinct and diabolic way that he carried himself which intrigued me.  So, I didn’t run when he wasn’t exactly what I had envisioned.  Yet, I was intrigued enough by his initial charisma to remain on this date and discover more about this new person in my life.

“My apologies for being late,” Mr. Mafia Man introduced himself to me, appearing genuine, flashing an apologetic smile.  Next, he astounded my naïve eyes by doing a quick, yet simple magic trick for me.  I felt like a little girl again when he made his cigar ashes disappear from the top of my hand and reappear into the bottom of my hand.  This was back when you could smoke inside Minneapolis bar establishments.

“You have a certain je ne sais quoi,” he told me after he brushed the ashes from the palm of my hand, turned it over and kissed the back of my hand like a gentleman, causing my face to flush, hot and pink. At that time in my young, naïve life, I was unfamiliar with the French language, so I stared blankly at his statement. I did not know if what he said was a good or a bad thing.  I just smiled, like I do when my Korean mother is talking to me in her quick, heavily accented dialect and I don’t understand a word she has just said.

After our introduction, Mr. Mafia Man indulged in a strong alcoholic drink at the bar.  I ordered another Perrier, sipping on ice cold bubbly water as we talked, before he invited me to his room.  I thought to myself, “What the hell?  I haven’t been intimate with anyone in months.  Why not live a little and experience life?”  So I followed him to his hotel room.  I was quiet, not knowing what to say, my thoughts spinning in a million directions.  “What if he murders me once we get inside this room?  What if he wants to fuck?  I didn’t bring condoms.  I hope that he did.  What if he sucks in bed and I have to fake my way through this?  What if he doesn’t like a shaved pussy?  What if his penis is super small and I can’t feel a thing?  What if he’s weird and kinky?  And would that be the worst thing?  What if?  What if?  What if?”

“Mia, I have something important to tell you.  My name isn’t really _____, it is ______ and I’m not really who I say that I am.” Mr. Mafia Man told me just as we entered his elegant hotel room.

“Oh shit,” I muttered in my head.  My panic sped up my heartbeat, thumping fast and hard. My dark brown eyes suddenly went blank and then turned hazy with confusion.  It took me a while to register what he was saying.  “I have to protect myself, Mia.  My wife is a Mafia princess.  If her family finds out about this affair, I’m in big trouble.”

I saw nothing but the color of red before my eyes.  Rage filled me.  My youthful temper triggered easily.  At that time in my life, I lived in a small Minnesota town and was lost in my own world of fiction and art a majority of the time.  I didn’t get out often and I didn’t comprehend what Mr. Mafia man was telling me.  This seemed too fictional to me.  “No one really lives a life like that.  Do they?” I thought, utterly perplexed.

“We have to keep our affair a secret.  No one can know.  Understand?”

I nodded my head, thinking that I did understand.  But I didn’t.  Not really.

“I want to take care of you and your children financially.  I will give you a week at Club Med once per year, a generous allowance, and a college education for both of your children, if you become my secret mistress.  Please don’t be angry with me for not telling you my real name.  I couldn’t tell you this on the phone.  Sometimes my wife has her goons listen to my phone calls.  I’m surprised that I’m not in trouble already, for all of the time I have spent with you online and talking with you on the phone.”

I had never been propositioned like this before.  I desperately needed the money to help support my children.  My ex-husband was incapable of doing so.  But, could I really do it this way?  I honestly didn’t know.

I was shocked by Mr. Mafia Man’s offer.  Shortly after we entered his exquisite hotel room, I was still stupefied by what he had just told me.  I could only go with the flow.  I didn’t have time to think about my next move in this intense, erotic chess game.  Mr. Mafia Man moved with a great sense of urgency, commanding me to spread my legs wide after I fell upon the plush, king size bed.  He gripped my black lace panties, pulled them down, abandoning them to dangle upon my right ankle.  He hiked up my short black dress high above my hips. His wanton tongue licked salaciously upon my stiff, saturated stem of pink flesh and darted in and out of my creamy aperture like a tiny, wet cock.  My nipples felt stiff as diamonds – completely erect with arousal.  My toes curled and uncurled from a rushing, intoxicating flow of ecstasy.  All of my atoms, skin cells, and senses were humming and buzzing with an incandescent energy.  My soul was on fire!  My eyes blurred and unfocused.  My fingers gripped tightly at the soft bed sheets.  My low, soft, sensual moans grew louder, transcending into desperate cries and ecstatic screams as he ate my apple like Adam devoured Eve’s in the Garden of Eden.  My back arched high off the bed when Mr. Mafia Man sucked, nibbled and licked up and down my glossy, soaking wet clit like a rapacious wolf, who had not eaten in days – the sounds of his animalistic growling and moaning were muffled by my slick, quivering sex.  I had to cover my mouth a few times, screaming into my hand, to soften my voice.

My body quivered in a lust-filled frenzy.  My head wildly thrashed from side to side.  My back arched high off the bed whenever his fingers deeply plowed into my convulsing slit.  The sensual sensation curled my tingling toes.  It felt so fucking good I could hardly withstand my mounting pleasure. My aroused hunger was being slaked.  It had been a long time since I had felt this good.  Mr. Mafia Man’s technique was not gentle and romantic.  It was quick, mind-blowing, raw, animalistic and rough.  Part of me enjoyed this, and another part of me was shocked with surprise.  I was panting like a dog on a hot August afternoon.  My tongue was parched.  My throat was dry.  I couldn’t believe that I was here, having my quim eaten by a man I hardly knew – a man with a dark, dangerous background.  I had never been aroused to this level before with this kind of rough, indelicate skill.

When we finished with our sexual escapades, I went to the bathroom and cleaned myself with a white cotton washcloth, and matching soft hand towel.  I winced, feeling sore between my legs, as I re-pinned and smoothed my hair.  My hands and legs trembled after receiving such a hard and delicious orgasm.

When I exited the bathroom, I sat down on the messy bed, avoiding the wet spots, to relax and calm my trembling legs.

“Do you mind if I smoke some pot before we go to dinner?” I asked, hoping he wasn’t an uptight Republican.

“No, not at all,” he replied.  “Do you mind sharing some with me?”

Together we smoked a long fat joint full of premium weed.  I didn’t realize that my date had taken a tranquilizer when he was on the plane, later mixing it with the strong alcoholic drink he had downstairs in the elegant hotel bar.  I regretted smoking my pot with Mr. Mafia Man, who wasn’t a regular pot smoker, by the time we took the elevator to the hotel lobby and exited the large glass doors.  Mr. Mafia Man was very euphoric and boisterous in the taxi.  I could tell he was extremely intoxicated when we arrived at an upscale restaurant on Hennepin Avenue – The Palomino Club.

I had never been to this exquisite dinner club, above a micro-brewery on downtown Minneapolis’s Hennepin Avenue.  Up until this point in my life, my budget never permitted me to enjoy this kind of extravagancy.  The wording on this dinner club’s fancy menu appeared foreign and frightening to me.  However, the peculiar behavior I was observing from Mr. Mafia Man was even more horrifying.  He had just finished his second strong drink of alcohol, soon after we were seated at our table.

When we received our order, I cringed with distress, dropping my fancy salad fork, which dinged loudly upon my plate.  A few heads rapidly turned in our direction and then went back to their conversations. I was shocked by total disbelief.  I couldn’t believe what I saw.  Mr. Mafia Man was transforming into the hilarious cartoon caricature, Fred Flintstone.  His awkward, cartoonish mouth grimaced largely, and then he grossly spit out his salad as if his mouth was a fancy salad shooter being sold on late night television.  Part of me wanted to burst out laughing.  The adult inside of me did my best to compose myself and desperately pray to the gods above that no one was observing this ridiculous scene.

Mr. Mafia Man’s eyelids were extremely heavy and droopy.  His eyes were tiny slits on his large face, appearing more like Mister Magoo than Fred Flintstone, as both of his large hands were shoveling food into his mouth.  I can’t recall what he ordered, but it wasn’t finger food.  My mind was screaming, “GROSS!  REALLY?!  Pinch me.  Am I dreaming?  This can’t be happening.”

I was feeling kind of buzzed from the marijuana which Mr. Mafia Man and I had smoked in his hotel room, and I was doing everything in my power to control the deep down, silent belly laugh, that trembled and quaked in my pit of my gut.  I quickly sobered up when Mafia Man pushed himself away from the table and began to stray through the elegant restaurant.  He had no balance as he clumsily walked, stumbling over his large feet.  He appeared as if Barney Rubble has just hit this image of Fred Flintstone with Mr. Magoo’s eyes over the head with a large wooden prehistoric club.  I imagined that I observed little cartoon birdies flying around his head as he stumbled in circles throughout the restaurant and the entrance area.  It must have been the pot and my overactive imagination.  I was seriously concerned and completely embarrassed.

 

I was grateful for my past experience in working with people who were severely mentally ill, and in detoxification centers with alcoholics and drug addicts. As quick as a fleeting second, I regained my composure and acted on impulse.  I retrieved Mr. Mafia Man, who had been wandering the elegant mall area attached to the restaurant and guided him back to our table.  He was still dazed and stumbling on our way to his seat.  His large body slumped in his chair after I guided him down into his seat as best as I could.  His head was bobbing up and down with sleepy nods.  The mix of a tranquilizer, two strong drinks of alcohol and marijuana had pushed this dazed and confused man over the edge.  I wouldn’t have offered to smoke pot with him if I had known about the tranquilizer that he took on the plane.  He was over the top inebriated.  I didn’t understand why someone would mix alcohol, marijuana and a tranquilizer together, especially if you wanted to make a good impression on someone.   Life is often full of funny, awkward moments.  It definitely makes a humorous memory and great material for a hilarious story.

“Waitress,” I spoke loudly, catching the attention of a beautiful waitress.  “Can we have the check and if you have a dessert with chocolate, can we get it to go?  Also, would you please call us a taxi?  Thank you.” I smiled as graciously as I could, attempting to cover up my embarrassment, as Mr. Mafia Man remained semi-conscious in his chair.  His tongue was now sticking out of his mouth, with bits and pieces of food stuck to it.  I wish I would have had a camera phone back then.  It was a sight to remember.

“Did that same tongue lick my ‘who–who’ just an hour ago?  It doesn’t look so appealing now,” I thought to myself while waiting for the check and dessert.  I didn’t think about who would see the credit card bill when I signed my name.  I didn’t know there might be repercussions for doing so – a consequence which Mr. Mafia Man would pay for when he returned to Long Island.  Honestly, I just wanted to get this date over with.

After I signed the bill, I managed to get Mr. Mafia Man back to his hotel via taxicab.  His large unbalanced body kept wobbling back and forth and swaying in small circles.  When we arrived at his hotel and were riding the elevator, I attempted to get my intoxicated date to remain still.  I sheepishly looked to the three older ladies in the elevator. They appeared very conservative, high class and amused.  Suddenly, I hear a loud, large “BURP!” expel from Mr. Mafia Man’s mouth.  On impulse, I scolded him like a mother would her child, “Don’t be so rude!”  Instantly, I heard the three older ladies burst out in laughter, which only made me join them.  I almost fell on the floor from laughing so hard when the elevator door opened onto our floor.  My maternal instincts kicked in again, guiding Mr. Mafia Man off the elevator, leading him down a long corridor to his hotel room.  I must admit it was difficult because of the inebriated state that Mr. Mafia Man was in, and because I was still laughing pretty hard from the weird, humorous scene in the elevator and about how absurd this entire date had gone.

“Come on.  You are almost there,” I encouraged Mr. Mafia Man, attempting to silence my laughter, as we entered his hotel room and I managed to get his slumping, limp, heavy body onto his hotel bed.  My empathetic soul couldn’t leave him alone in this inebriated condition.  He was a mess!  So, I remained the night and slept upon a small decorative couch nearby his bed.

When I awoke the next morning, I was still angry and embarrassed.

“I don’t want your allowance, your Club Med, or college educations for my children.”  I hissed at Mr. Mafia Man, whose thick, dark Italian hair was an absurd mess.  My anger flashed dangerously in my eyes.  “I won’t be your secret Mistress.” I would not listen to what Mr. Mafia Man was trying to say, as I packed my overnight bag and exited his hotel room.  That was the last time I saw Mr. Mafia Man.  He did call a few times after he made it home to Long Island, New York. He said that his wife, the Mafia princess, found out about our encounter and that two of her goons beat him up and gave him a black eye.  I’m unsure if his story about being married to a Mafia princess is even true.  To me, it seems too absurd to believe.  But it makes for a good story. Even if this man’s wife was not a Mafia princess, I enjoyed the belief of it being possible, and writing about my silly, sexy adventure.

Good night Henry.  I have a busy day painting tomorrow.

Bisous, Mon Amour,

Mia

Mia Loves Henry Miller – Letter 53 – Autumn Rain, Anais Nin and Wet Dreams

“When she closed her eyes she felt he had many hands, which touched her everywhere, and many mouths, which passed so swiftly over her, and with a wolf like sharpness, his teeth sank into her fleshiest parts. Naked now, he lay his full length over her. She enjoyed his weight on her, enjoyed being crushed under his body. She wanted him soldered to her, from mouth to feet. Shivers passed through her body.” –Anais Nin, Delta of Venus

Dear Henry,

I had difficulty falling asleep last night. The autumn rain was pounding on the roof top of our suburban home, the trees swayed to and fro in rapid motion by wild wind, and the temperature of the night was dropping quickly, degree by degree. My temples were pounding profusely in tormented rhythm with the rain. My heart was thumping from the torture of my headache. I could find no relief. My dreams were delayed by my suffering and the stress of my lack of financial resources, my children, and my inability to write to you on a regular basis, because of my responsibilities of taking care of Little Miss M.

I never thought that I would be at war with my youngest daughter, Little Miss M’s mother. I would never tolerate a friend who treated me the way that she has. She has been living in a crazy world ever since the death of her boyfriend.  She’s doing everything that she can to destroy my contentment. I had just read the court papers which my daughter has filed against me, which was sent to me via snail mail, stating that I had to return to court to fight for Little Miss M’s guardianship and safety, moments before I went to bed. I fumed with frustration, I wept with sadness, I felt bitter with betrayal, and I simmered with anger. My daughter has stated in the court papers that I am slandering her.  I am sure that she will think I am slandering her again by writing this letter to you, telling the truth of my life.  She has accused me of slander for setting up a trust account to help pay for the care of Little Miss M.  I am being honest, typing words of truth, bearing my soul, in hopes for financial assistance, and that other mothers can possibly relate to the difficulties which they may have to battle with their own daughters.  I am sure that I am not the only one feeling heartbroken due to the massive cracks in our mother – daughter relationship.  I am bearing my soul because if I did not relieve myself with writing this letter to you, I will explode from stress and agitation. I do not believe that writing the truth is an act of slander. My daughter is mentally ill.  There is nothing that I can do until she chooses to get help. I used to talk to my youngest daughter by phone five to six times per day.  For the past four months, we have not spoken a word to each other. It genuinely breaks my heart.

It was past one o’clock in the morning when I finally drifted off to sleep, escaping into a world which consisted of a multitude of flashing dreams.  My inner turmoil was transcending into an erotic dreamscape.  The first episode of dreams traveled me back in time, reuniting me with my best friend from high school.  It felt comforting to spend time with someone who I had entrusted with my friendship, my inner demons, and listened to my confessions of an adolescent drama queen.  Eventually my chimera eclipsed into a flight of fancy where it was a hot midsummer’s night. I saw visions of myself, side by side with a high school lover, embracing each other, naked in a lush and cool grassy park.  Sometime during the night, I found myself roaming like a specter in my dreams.  I was now in Paris with Anaïs Nin and you, Henry.  Anaïs appeared so beautiful, alluring, and provocative, wearing a colorful, long, silk, 1920’s caftan robe, as she lay like a cat in heat on her gorgeous bed. Her milky white skin was exposed from the front opening of her colorful garment slipping open. Her female essence mesmerized me like a snake charmer does a serpent.  Her silky skin enticed me even more, which her slipping caftan was now exposing her beautiful thighs. Her raven hair was long and loose. Her skin appeared delicate, soft and creamy white, much like a porcelain doll.  Her lips were stained – red as roses. I observed her like a phantom from another world through an ethereal veil.

Anaïs’ erotic escapades began by making love to you, Henry. Your robust hands roamed upon her lovely breasts, squeezing her perky mounds of firm flesh, your fingertips grip her nipples like a vice and then rolled them between your fingertips. Anaïs throat hummed gratifying moans. Her delicate toes curled and uncurled as ecstasy rushed through her blood. Your traversing lips kissed her mouth, neck and breasts with a voracious appetite. Your lips suckled upon her erect nipples. Anaïs’ breath was jagged, her enchanting mouth was open wide, her exotic eyes closed in rhapsody, her mind sensing and absorbing every touch, thrust and wiggle. Your virile hands pushed her silky thighs far apart, causing Anaïs to moan with extreme arousal. Your fingers slicked upon her glossy, swollen labia, tickled and glided upon her arduous clitoris, and delve deep inside her honey hole, her body now writhing in a state of bawdy delirium.

I gasped with envy when your head vanished between Anaïs’ thighs. Your tongue lapping at her fruit like an over anxious child devouring an ice cream cone on hot, summer day.  Anaïs’ moans escalated higher, rapidly becoming more frenzied. The memory of her thick, sultry cream abandoned upon your upper lip, when your head bobbed up for air, stained my brain, haunting me in the morning, hours after I had awoken.

I recall an eerie feeling as if I was being watched, when you and Anaïs peered in my direction. You depart Anaïs’ trembling body, and walk, muscular and naked, your skin glowing with sweat, towards the ethereal veil which I had assumed shielded me from your sight. I softly shriek with shocked disbelief when your hand firmly grabs my wrist, pulling me into your fantasia world.

“Bring her to me,” Anaïs pleaded with a lusty, moaning whisper.  I witnessed her expose more of her thighs, slipping the silky caftan off her buttery skin.  You pulled me completely through my ethereal veil.  I was no longer a pellucid spirit in the night. I was a red, hot blooded woman, pulsing with fervid vitality. I could feel my ardent lust pump hard between my legs. The ache was so agonizing, I could hardly walk. When I looked down at my body, my nightgown had vanished.  I was completely vulnerable and naked.

It was difficult to breathe when you guided my body towards Anaïs. I sucked down a large doze of fresh air before you pushed my head in between Anaïs’ thighs which quivered with anticipation.

“Taste her,” you spoke with a clear dominant tone.

Her love juice poured hotly from her sex – thick, creamy and wet.  Her flavor pleased me – sweet and salty.  My head was buried between her luscious thighs, my long, raven hair caressing upon the top of her bare legs. My back arched like a cat in heat, my buttocks rising higher in the air, anticipating your hand to strike hard upon my aroused flesh and your fingers to deeply explore within me.  My titillating moans were muffled by Anaïs’ fleshy, pink folds of skin, when I finally received what I so desperately wanted from you.  The strikes upon my glowing pink buttocks crashed like cymbals when your hand collided with my naked, firm skin. The music of sensuality penetrated the air. Our moans were sung like a choir, in tones of tenor, muffled alto, and high pitched soprano screams. My ass jutted further backwards to plunge your fingers deep inside me. My head arched backwards, my mouth briefly gasped for air before my tongue was wiggling faster and plunging deeper and more desperate into my beautiful lover.  Anaïs was screaming with blissful passion.  I felt so loved when she compassionately stroked my long, raven hair, while I licked her swollen clitoris, and plunged my tongue into her honey hole, as she comforted me like a mother would her child. My glossy, wet, stem of flesh stiffened, my sex ached more profusely, and my flowing lust dripped rapidly onto your fingers, knuckles and wrist.

Suddenly, my dream rapidly flashes forward in time. Anaïs, you and I are collapsed upon Anaïs’ large bed. Our bodies are entangled together.  Musk permeates the air.  I suddenly notice that all the erotic paintings hung on Anaïs’ bedroom wall, were painted by me. You are telling me in soft, raspy whispers, why you like my paintings so much, as your naked, muscular chest heaves up and down, attempting to catch your breath.  I don’t remember painting them.  I am astounding by the curves, the colors and the eroticism in this collection of artistic portraits. I quickly attempt to record the erotic images of art deep inside my brain, so that I can hopefully find the time to paint them when I awaken from this lascivious dream.

Eventually, I faded from this erogenous reverie , and was briskly dragged back into reality.  The dawn was approaching.  My loins continued to ache.  My panties were soaked with moist lust. I could hear Little Miss M stirring in her bed.  I closed my eyes tightly, wishing that Little Miss M would sleep just a little bit longer, so I could remain mesmerized and entertained by my sexual chimera.  Soon, I heard her tiny feet shuffle across the hardwood floors and her little body, invading my side of the bed, pushing me closer to Mr. C.  When my body presses tightly against my husband’s warm body, a surge of erotic energy tingled up and down my spine.  I desperately wished that it was just him and me in the bed together. Unfortunately, this was not the case. I had to contain my sexual energy, slightly awaken from my lust-filled dreams, and attempt to find comfort in a crowded bed.

Finding comfort in a crowded bed never occurred. I was forced to completely wake up from this sensual dream and start my day taking care of Little Miss M.  I have not felt the glorious emotion of sexual satisfaction for numerous months.  Mr. C and I did not have the opportunity be intimate with each other on our wedding anniversary, due to taking care of Little Miss M.  I have not had the opportunity to self – satisfy myself. I feel like I am going to explode into a million pieces soon, if I can’t find a way to relieve my sexual tension and escape from my daily stress.

The sensual images of my dream linger inside my mind throughout my day. The ache between my thighs haunted me.  I daydream for time alone with Mr. C – or for time alone with myself.  Unfortunately, I do not know when that will happen. Our nights and days continue to be occupied with the responsibilities of being a guardian of a small child.  For now, my sexual escapades are contained deep inside my dreams.

My life is not always full of eroticism, glamour or excitement. I don’t always have a dazzling life as a burlesque star, a magician, an artist and an erotic writer. When I am not producing a burlesque show or slowly slipping off my elegant, glittering costumes, nylons and lingerie on stage, when I am not writing erotic letters to you, Henry, when I am not traveling to exotic or adventurous cities, such as Manhattan, San Francisco or Paris, I am living an ordinary life. I do not have the magic answers on how to publish the great American, romance novel. I do not have the correct answers on how to become a famous artist or to produce a successful burlesque show.  I can only wing it as I move forward in life and hope that success will follow.  Today, I am just a woman who is starting her life over, becoming a guardian to a very special child, who I love dearly. I will protect her and love her as best as I can, even if that means that I sacrifice my dreams.

For many years I have fantasized about becoming a published author, touring the world on a successful book tour. I have dreamed of observing my art work on famous gallery walls. I have worked hard, and more often than not, I have worked for free to build my career and my name, hoping that it would lead to something fantastic and financially rewarding someday.  I have dreamed of a romantic, sexual life with Mr. C and that we would travel the world together, creating new adventures and erotic memories as we grow older in our lives. However, my road in life has drastically changed, since the death of Little Miss M’s father. I honestly don’t know if I will ever see my dreams materialize. All that I know is that I still have a loving, patient, understanding husband, a beautiful granddaughter, loving stepchildren, and close friends, who I hold near and dear to my heart.

The number thirteen has always been a magic number for Mr. C and me.  We met on Friday, March 13, 1998.  I imagined publishing the first book of fifty letters written to you, Henry, this year – 2013.  I have been diligently writing this blog for almost two years. I still have a lot of re-editing to do, in order to get the first fifty letters ready for publishing.  I have almost 18,000 hits on my blog. I expected my life to magically change for the better at the age of forty-five, when my children had become young adults. However, with the overwhelming responsibilities of taking care of Little Miss M, who has suddenly come into my life, and enduring the traumatic war between my youngest daughter and me, I do not know if my dreams will ever materialize. I often wish for a fairy Godmother to swish her magic wand to transform my life and manifest my dreams. It feels like all of my hard work, over the course of many years, has been for nothing.  Presently, my days are now spent helping Little Miss M grow and develop into a fabulous, beautiful, stable, successful woman. I can only hope that I can make that happen, and that all of my sacrifices in my life to do so, are worthwhile.

Today, I feel extreme sadness that my life has not gone as I had originally planned.  I try to flow like water down a raging river, with all of the changes and obstacles which have recently come into my life, as best as possible.  Maybe my first book of fifty letters written to you, Henry Miller, will someday be published and maybe it won’t.  But, I refused to give up. I have to keep trying to manifest my dreams, even if the process is slow and the outcome is unexpected.

I know deep in my soul that I was born to become a successful writer and artist.  I was also created to be a maternal figure for others – to love and to cherish them, regardless if they hate me in the end. Sometimes we don’t always get what we desire.  I have always done my best to be a good person, a good mother, and a good friend.  I cannot do any better than I already have done.  At least I have had the ability to travel in my life through literature, dreams, fantasies and real life experiences, prior to Little Miss M coming into my life.  I am grateful that I have journeyed onward with my life with the gift of your numerous books depicting your sexual and enlightening life, Henry.  I am definitely not an expert in life. I am just a woman trying to do the best I can to live each minute of my days as best as possible.  It has been gratifying to experience the adventures which I have already journeyed, whether they have consisted of good or bad experiences.  My life is an amazing, emotional roller coaster ride, full of climaxes and down slopes. I am left in this moment in my life, ready to uncover whatever mysteries are in my future.  I will never give up on my dreams, regardless of what comes my way.  I am not ashamed to be the sexually enlightened woman that I have become.  I will not apologize to others. Nor will I feel shame for what my family members may think of me as I continue to slowly compose these letters to you, Henry. I have never required expensive, lavish, name brand fashions, a fancy house, a luxurious sports car, and a glamorous, rich life. I have only required your wisdom and guidance through the literature which you have left behind in your myriad of books, to help guide me as I continue onward to live my life.  I have to believe that my investment in purchasing your books and my time reading them will eventually pay off.  I have sacrificed so much of my life, contributing my time to reading, writing, art work, and taking care of my family.  At this moment in my life, I feel that my dreams may never prosper.  I have to hang onto a small thread of faith.  I cannot believe that my efforts will be for nothing.

I must end this letter Henry, Little Miss M is full of mayhem today.  It makes it difficult to write.

Bisous, Mon Amour,

Mia

“I had a feeling that Pandora’s box contained the mysteries of woman’s sensuality, so different from a man’s and for which man’s language was so inadequate. The language of sex had yet to be invented. The language of the senses was yet to be explored.”  – Anais Nin, Delta of Venus

Mialoveshenrymiller – Letter 50 – Je T’aime Mon Amour, Henry Miller – Journeys and Mysteries

Miasnow01

(This is the last letter in my first book of letters to Henry Miller)

I am writing this letter at 12/10/2012 at 3:06 PM

Dear Henry,

“One thing I learned as a writer,” I charged at Victor, “is to be unyielding true to myself and my characters.  An author should write for his conscience alone with a sense of eternity, as if he were writing his testament. There will always be an audience—bigger than you think—for those you suggest I should suppress, the honest reader will appreciate me for.” – Corneliu Mitrache, A Marquise Of Our Time.

dantes_inferno

I apologize for not writing sooner, Henry. I have felt lost inside the metaphorical world of Dante’s Aligheri’s blazing Inferno.  My inner demons have been nightmarish – my nights and days happened to be filled with heartache and intense headaches that made me feel dead to the world.  I have felt this way for more than six months. This is why my letters to you are not consistent.  I have roamed aimlessly through midnight dark, frightening forests and the poetic nine circles of Hell.  I am now finding Dante’s Paradiso, slowly minute by minute and day by day.  If I had the time to paint, I would create a portrait of the angel Beatrice, who would be guiding me out of my agonizing darkness.  For many months, weeks, days and minutes, I refused to write to you until I had something worth writing about.  I wanted to end this book with a positive ending.

Dante'sBeatriceenthroned

After trying many headache medications, over the course of many months, I found one that would permit me to live a quality of life.  It’s a seizure med that dulls my physical pain, keeping me feeling alert and non-foggy.  If I remain active, I feel relief.  My days are now filled with Tai Chi and physical therapy and multiple Tens Units glued and pulsing like electronic drums upon my body.  My soul feels reawakened.  I am happy and dancing burlesque again on Ground Zero Night Club’s stage.  To me, it feels sensational to my mind, body and spirit.  As long as I keep moving forward, I feel better, minute by minute.  As long as I look towards the future, or simply remain quiet in the moment, instead of revisiting the past, I instinctively know that I will find more adventures and eroticism, moving onward and upward as I forge forward upon my path in life.  I am fighting for life once again – this time with extreme determination and my utmost passion.

henrymiller10

I never imagined writing this last letter to you would be so difficult.  It is time for me to let you go for awhile, and move onward, step by step to finish this book.  I still have much to do.  Would you believe that this is the fourth attempt for me to compose this letter to you?  It has been way to long since I last wrote to you. (My sincere apologies to my readers who follow this blog) I have missed you, Henry.  After my sudden break up with Mr. B. – I have existed in a hopeless, dark and dreary season that lasted for many months, as if I lived in Seattle in the rain –  I am grateful to have Mr. C to love me unconditionally and help me pick up the pieces after the break- up of a long, polyamorous love affair, and understand my bereavement.

Before I became so lost in the depths of the Inferno, Mr. C tugged me out of the darkness before I withered like a flower out of bloom.  There was the point in my life, during the last few weeks of my utmost darkness, when I was attempting to fight my way out of Hell and push onward through Purgatory, when my husband demonstrated his genuine love for me.

He said with strength, love, confidence, conviction and understanding, “Enough Mia, you are no longer you.  I love your passion to live.  It is time for you to live your life with passion, once again. Move forward baby.  Move forward. I want my Mia back.”

Prior to that specific moment in time, for many days and nights, I was plummeting into a dim, Aligherian world.  My soul was tossed into the blazing Inferno, unexpectedly.  There were many days of roaming in fear inside dark forests.  I had to find my inner strength to slay my emotional and metaphorical demons. For over fifteen years, I have always tried to live my life to the fullest, regardless of what comes my way.  I have never imagined to surrender to weakness because I had to overcome so many emotional dramas and obstacles that I have recently encountered, as I neared the end of writing this first collection of letters to you.

I have always imagined you, Henry Miller, fitting somewhere into my life as if it was destiny.  I fantasized every moment of my waking day about writing this book of letters to you for more than one decade.  I could not get you out of my blood, my mind, and from the depths of my soul.  Regardless of what people may think of me as share my liberated experiences with the world, I honestly do not care.  I had to write this book – I have been captivated by an erotic spell.  I have greatly desired to write these honest and open letters to you about my amorous life, for a very long time.  I have traveled with you, within my heart, soul and imagination for over a year now – writing and documenting my past and present memories, and telling you with written words about my provocative life, whenever I found the time.  I wanted to fulfill your wish for letters which derive from pretty Asian woman.

Happy Anniversary Vintage Card Front Preview

Happy Belated Anniversary Henry!   I started writing you letters on December 4th, 2011.  That is when I began this blog.  I was encouraged by my step daughter to start a blog and to write about what I know. Please pardon me from being so late to write to you my last letter in this book. I never believed that my past one year of writing fifty letters to you, would have me climbing large, metaphorical rocky mountains, lowering my soul into the depths of darkness and uncertainty.  I have journeyed upon the paths of life’s unexplored valleys, and learned to walk peacefully on mid – level terrains.  I have fallen in love with my unexpected dramas and the erotic escapades that I have explored and which I have experienced as I have lived my life as a strong, confident, liberated, and passionate woman.  (We also have over ten thousand hits on our blog in just one year – I feel so lucky!)

I say (we) because it is what you have left behind in your enlightening literature, your sexual books, and your words written in letters to your friends around the world and America.  You have inspired me to write these letters to you, about my dramatic life.  Anais Nin was a great influence to me, as well as many other prolific authors.  Thank you for being my muse and departing behind beautiful, wise written pages about your journeys, adventures, erotic escapades, your life’s mysteries, your knowledge and sharing your merry and bright mind, soul, and heart.  I have learned so much from you, Henry Miller.  I have fantasized for a long time that you and I would exchange our energy, knowledge, incite and erotogenic visions, choreographed with written words, from one cosmic plane to the other.   What would living be like if we did not use our imaginations?

Your spirit often reminds me of a poem which I wrote a very long time ago.  It reminds me of you, because your spirit is like wind.  I can feel you, but I cannot see you.   I hope that you will like it.

NYCwind

They Call Her Wind

She whistles when aurora crawls upon a pink horizon

She caresses when the night licks upon a starry eventide

Her airy kiss hithers when she dances passed Orion

An existence with a name

Yet, her presence hides.

She moves a tree’s leafy arms with her fluttered breath

She moves through my hair with a whirlwind breeze

She feeds the earth with Mother Nature’s Chinook breasts

She talks in whispers to the willow tree.

At times her temper rattles upon a window pane

Her anguish can scream upon vast prairie land

You cannot see her

Yet, you may feel her pain

They call her Wind

And she’ll touch you with a tempest hand.

You’ve never seen her

Yet you feel her near

Her breath touches you most of time

She’s an existence who has a name

But no face

To the eyes invisible

Yet, to the heart sublime. – Mia

I started reading another one of your books this morning while I was taking a long, hot bath, The Air Conditioned Nightmare. I am finished with CM’s book, A Marquise Of Our Time.  The poor book appears abused, but remains close by me.  I want to feel the energy of this author’s imagination and visually see how I devoured his story word for word.

loft01

I am at my artist loft, lavishing in silence and self reflection.  I have been here for a couple of days.  I fondly think of your past charisma, your wisdom, your bravery, and the acquiescing trust which you possessed when you and your artist friend, Abe Rattner, began your adventure upon the black tarry roads, barely knowing how to drive, with hardly any money in your shallow pockets, and daringly began your American Adventures.  Your words are significant and profound to me.  I can trust moving forward in life, even if I have no clue how I will make my dreams materialize.  I just have to believe in my purpose and acquiesce to life as it moves so quickly forward.  I will just do it and permit the Universe to find a way to give me what I require, in some kind of way via object, book, or a  life experience.  I might make a warm connection and absorb the knowledge which I learn from another person.  A friendships might be bonded, if only for short moment.  And, if I am aware enough, I might be capable of experiencing the love from another human being –  and make a deep connection.  I want to remain open to life and to whatever might cross my path as I move forward.

I find the beginning of your book intriguing and hypnotic.  I crave to take a hot bath all day long, just so that I can enthrall myself into your story and rattling opinions.  To me, your written words have a strong voice.  Your words captivate my soul, mind and heart.  I read about your bitter sweet moments, as I travel across America with you.  Your words and phrases and long running paragraphs are full of passion, opinion and honesty.  That is what I like most about your writing.  I love how you openly love and you hate America.  I get it.  The United States are not perfect, but we do have our good moments and people.  We are all not wasteful, egotistical idiots.   Some of us do live life to the fullest.  Mr. C and I are all about making our lives count.  We don’t get much quality time for each other, yet we have the liberation to live our lives the way we were intended to live – happily, passionately, and intensely.  We feel it is important to have purpose and love what you do in life – this is the only life you have at this particular moment in time.

Paris01

I felt your panic as you wrote about how wanted to run away from your fears and flee to Paris once more – in a city that intoxicated you.  I often loathe that state of Minnesota, especially the hard winters and I do love NYC, while you hated that city.  We all see life differently.  And if you step back far enough, you see everything as a Universal whole.   I love much of the U.S. and I love to take road trips – especially with Mr. C.  Where was your sense to let go and just enjoy your adventure, and view it like the artist you were?  Henry, America may suck.  But for me, it is better than living in the severity, control, hate and bitterness of North Korea.  I love what I see, regardless of the ignorance of some people and how they see minorities.  Every part of the world has its flaws and perfections.  Every piece and imperfection fits somewhere upon an over sized piece of canvas.  There are so many intricate sizes, shapes, forms, depths, shades, colors, and images artistically choreographed and created with great, human imagination.  Where you see ugliness in America, I see things as they are, nothing more, nothing less.  I see the beauty and the ugliness.  We see it everywhere we travel. It is life and life is drama. I learn to love everything just the way it is, much like I view every kind of person.

I made the mistake of bringing a first edition of this book into the tub with me early this morning, as the sun was continuing to rising slowly upon the Midwestern sky…silly me….I won’t be ravishing the vintage book in the tub anymore.  I found another used copy of, The Air Conditioned Nightmare, sitting upon my IKEA book shelf in my loft.  It’s a book that I have permission to ravish, much like the younger gentleman from San Francisco, who erotically enraptured me for hours one winter evening in Downtown Minneapolis, many years ago, prior to giving me this book, and several others of your books, such as a First Edition copy of your book, Stand Still Like the Hummingbird, which he bought in a San Francisco book store, and then brought them to me in the Twin Cities, as gifts for me.  I will tell you more about this intriguing, stimulating encounter in upcoming letters.

I have not told you yet, that Mr. C bought me one of your rare books about a month ago.  It’s your book, “The Nightmare Notebook,” which is a book containing your notes before you wrote, The Air Conditioned Nightmare.  I love it because only 700 copies exist.  I always hunt for the HM books I don’t have.  I am so delighted when I do find one that I don’t already possess. In your book, The Nightmare Notebook, many of your words are ineligible  and written with sloppy, quick squiggled handwriting, much like my handwriting is, but there is a unique kind of energy to your book, when I hold it and delicately flip my fingertips through the vintage pages, trying to read a word, here and there, which you have scribbled down upon paper.  My impressions and emotions in regards to your book are difficult to explain in words.  It is a feeling – a nice, spine tingling sensation.  I know that I will cherish it because it was the beginning to your American journey.  I will also cherish it because it was a very romantic gesture from Mr. C.

I received your rare, limited edition book, as an anniversary gift from Mr. C. – the man whom I love deeply.  I think my husband is charming, handsome, sound, serene, intelligent, charismatic, and a wonderful man, who loves me and would do anything for me to make me happy.  I would gratefully do the same for him.   To me, my husband seems to me to be simular to Anais Nin’s husband, Hugo.  Mr. C has always been there for me, arriving right when I needed him the most, especially when a love affair with a rich, older man has abruptly ceased.  It reminds me of the end of the erotic movie, by Phillip Kaufman, Henry and June.  Only I don’t like to keep secrets from Mr. C.  I openly write these letters as he remains alive.  He gives me the greatest gift of all, love and liberation.  I don’t require a large diamond ring.  What Mr. C gives me is something that cannot be purchased with money, and I feel rich for the love and experience.  We have never had a monogamous marriage.  I have always been a free spirit.  And, I truly believe that Mr. C genuinely loves me for who I am.

“Midway in our life’s journey, I went astray

From the straight road I woke to find myself

Alone in a dark wood, how shall I say

What would that was! I never saw so drear

So rank, so arduous a wilderness!

Its very memory gives a shape to fear

Death could scarce, be more bitter than that place!

But, since it came to good, I will recount

All that I found revealed there, by God’s grace.” – Dante’s Inferno, Canto I, lines one through nine.

I recently finished the remarkable book, A Marquis Of Our Time, by Corneliu Mitrache.   I stretched out the last, several pages of his book for as long as I could confine my curiosity.  I did not want his story to end.  I adore his writing.  I ravished his book as I took many hot baths at my loft, twice per day, for several weeks, to sooth my aching feet after long hours of dance rehearsals for my burlesque shows.  The pages of CM’s book are badly water stained.  I feel almost ashamed about how bad I ruined this author’s book.  I could not help myself.  I loved the words, the phrases, the paragraphs and the chapters. Everything that I loved in this book, are now underlined in ink.  Even the front and back cover are severely curled.  The book looks like an artistic mess.  I call this piece, Ravished Upon Russian and Romanian Snow.  RavishedMarquiseonsnow03

I want to tell you how this passionate author has been like my Virgil – a guide in my poetic world – my metaphorical pilot with written words, to fly me out of Hell.  I felt CM’s spirit through his love story in Paris, as well as his prolific imagination. His phrases and poetic lines joined me on the river banks of Acheron, his Romanian heart and English words, leading me through the depths of darkness, fear, and fire.  However, due to heartache, I departed for awhile, taking the dismal ferry alone.  I paid my coin to Charon, floating and drifting in a foggy, painful existence, ignoring this author’s book for quite some time.  I weakly gave into self-pity.  I also felt too depressed to even send an email to my new, European, email friend.  I will explain more about this gentleman who I met upon my journey, as I was writing my letters to you in the next book.  I have met a wonderful friend as I journeyed with you over the past year.  I am grateful. We have been communicating to each other via email for many months.  He is also a writer like I am and loves the theater probably more than I do.

Dante'sLimbo

For many months, my soul was stuck in limbo, ignoring CM’s book as I continued to sulk in desperation and silence.  On the evening when my husband spoke his amorous words to me, I found the inner strength to grip onto life once again, and to plant my feet steadily in the dark, moist dirt of the earth.  I can recall falling deeper into the depths of Dante’s poetic world, and found a way to immerse myself in deep examination and self revelation.  After my bereavement ceased from my parting from Mr. B, which lasted for too many months, I took a self-inventory of myself and decided to fight for life again.  I did not want to live in the legendary Dante’s Inferno and poetic world any longer.  I screamed and searched for a metaphorical escape.  I picked up Corneliu Mitrache’s book once again and Virgil was at my side, leading me to the ninth circle of Hell – CM’s written words became my almighty sword to slay my inner-demons.

Here are the last emails Mr. B and I recently exchanged. We don’t communicate often.  He cut me off like an opiate.  I give you my sincerest apologies to you Henry and to my readers.   I cannot expose everything in these emails.  I need to keep the mystery in these letters.

December 6, 2012

Dear Mr. B.

Happy Holidays!  I wish you another successful and happy year!  I just wanted to let you know that I am feeling stronger and better every day.  My headaches are subsiding.  I am on a new medication that gives me a quality life that keeps me fairly pain free.  My headaches are minimal if I keep active.  I am eating again, trying to gain some weight. I am starting to feel like my darkness has ended and I am ready to kick ass on life and success.

Thank you so much for everything!  You will always have a special place in my heart!  Even though our ties are severed and our journey has ended.

I thank you so much for the wonderful, erotogenic excursion!  I thank you for everything you have given and offered me.  I thank you for loving me.

Very Sincerely,

Mia

I had to  mentally and emotionally say, “Goodbye,” to Mr. B, silently in my mind as I ended my email letter to him.  Slow and salty tears dripped with melancholy down my cheeks and the muscles in my jaws unconsciously trembled, twitched and tensed.  I could not get the muscles in my face to relax.  I could not halt my fleeting thoughts and emotions.  I had to find a way to surrender to the moment before a massive headache overwhelmed and exhausted me. I had to let it all go.  I finally came to terms with that there would no longer be an affair with Mr. B.

Mr. B’s Reply, Dec 6, 2012

Hi, Mia —

Happy holidays to you!  I’m so pleased you have found something that helps and you’re feeling stronger.  That’s the most important thing.

Thank you to all that you gave to me.  You will always be with me.

My life has changed a lot.  My sex drive has plummeted, as has my ability to perform.  I’m spending loads of time on work.  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, blah blah blah blah.  But it’s good sweat.

I hope that you have a happy holiday season and get all of the success you deserve!

Sincerely,

Mr. B

Dante'sCelestialrose

The charming father figure who I used to call, my Nabokov’s Humbert, had once filled my life with love and extreme eroticism.  Our torrid love affair has slipped away like water slipping through my hands.  It can never be re-lived.  The story has ended.  There is no sequel.  It was a nice, long, adventurous journey with Mr B.  It’s time that I put my passionate memories of our time together away, and tuck them deep inside a black velvet box.  I will put it away for awhile on a cosmic shelf somewhere high in the Universe.  After I put my love affair to rest, I found myself opening up like a flower in the early spring, welcoming the warmth and the sun. Soon, I became closer to my pen pal paramour.  The hundreds of words, phrases, paragraphs and sentences which he and I have privately sent in emails somehow had awoken me and now I presently observe my life differently.  I found myself purging some of my dark, childhood memories without an audience, to a man an ocean away.  I was personally slaying the monsters and inner demons in Dante’s Hellish dimension, which poetically floats like a fictional star in space and time.

I knew by my pen pal paramour’s written replies, as I neared the end of CM’s book, that I needed to let go of everything that I could not control in my life.  Once again Virgil, my guide in my Divine Comedy, was by my side, with the companionship of CM’s story and written words.  I was nearing the end of a beautiful, bitter sweet, Romanian/Russian/Parisian love story. His dramatic characters walked with me as I struggled through the marshes of the River Styx.  And they told me it was okay to let go and enjoy the bitter sweet in life.  To view all the emotions of an intense love affair which has abruptly ceased, much like a chapter in a book or an unexpected ending.  Basically, it has been said in many written novels and books that life is full of journeys and mysteries.  CM’s bitter sweet, straight to the heart story was written by a virile man who has lived an amazing life. (his bio is quite astounding) I admire him, as well as his work.  His charismatic story made me laugh, sigh and even cry, as I finished the very last page of, A Marquis Of Our Time.  My journey with this author has ended.  My journey across America with you Henry is a new beginning and another adventure.

I have been reigniting my love life with Mr. C.  It feels good to occasionally fuck him and play our kinky, bondage games in the privacy of our loft!  We sometimes spend our nights there, our soul – mate bodies wrapped tightly around each other, our hearts beating upon each other’s naked, heaving chests, after experiencing intense, sexual activity.  And we still passionately embrace, after we have mind- blowing sex.  I sleep in his arms all night long without four dogs to crowd us. Our sexual life continues to be amazing.  I am grateful. I wish Mr. C and I had more time together.  My husband is still very busy with work, helping to build a global company.  I still have my loft in the city for the time being.  It is my private tower full of paint, books, canvas’, brushes, and a myriad of glorious pieces of vibrant art work decorating many of my walls.  And, I have my computer to use to write letters to you or do show business stuff, or to just watch a favorite movie.  I also have an abundance of light – rays of sunshine glimmering through my large, picturesque windows and a warm, welcoming fireplace.  Mr. C and I are only a few miles away from each other, as we each work throughout the day.   On a warm day, I will sometimes walk to his office to surprise him.  I’m looking forward to the light rail.  I wonder when it will be finished?

I am unsure if we will renew our loft’s lease for another year.  When I question Mr. C about it, he says with a smile in his eyes, “Mia, darling, I’m not saying at this point in time, that I want to give up the loft.”  There is a small flutter of hope in my heart.  There is a spark of happiness in my deep, chocolate brown eyes. I am savoring my pleasures of my loft, at this moment in time.  It’s sinful!  In this very minute, I am so happy!  My future is a mystery as I continue forward with my life.  I love mysteries and I love being married to my private gumshoe.

My artist loft is deeply loved; it’s my intimate love nest, my serene sanctuary, my own art space, a private place to share with my husband, or to possibly share with an intimate lover.  It’s a place where I can bask in bright rays of sunlight.  I am aware of the sounds of the city down below, which enlivens me like caffeine charging through my soul.  My heart pounds hard for the future – as if a wild herd of buffalo charging over the Dakota Mountains.

We had an amazing burlesque show this past Friday Night – 12-7-12 – at Ground Zero Nightclub in NE Minneapolis.  We had a high energy, appreciative crowd. THANKS TO ALL OF OUR BELOVED FANS! I love nights like this.  Our show was full of entertaining talent and sizzling hot, sexy drama and passionate energy!  I love that stage more than anything!  I love the messy dressing room, the burly- girl drama, the hard work, the creativity and the amazing passion, which is produced onstage one time per month by a cast of many talents!  I don’t have a car. I don’t go shopping.  But, I have invested in an adventure.  I have a story to tell.  I have experienced producing a quality burlesque show on a large, familiar stage, which I had fantasized about for many years as I danced my nights away high on a catwalk inside Ground Zero Nightclub.  I will not give up just yet.  I look hopefully to the future that my show will continue on.

Farragocast

I wanted to share an email I sent to my pen pal paramour, after the show.  I felt so high afterwards – I could not sleep. I had the incessant urge to write to my European confidante.  Every performer appeared on top of their game, and a high profile, Twin Cities Entertainment Magazine, The City Pages, came to photograph behind the scenes of our show, as well as what was being performed on stage.  They graciously exploited Dr. Farrago’s Burlesque Theater with a gorgeous internet slide show, compliments of RMD from B-Fresh Photography.  It makes for a nice, happy ending to this book – a little taste of success can go a long ways.  It is encouraging to me.

(To my readers of this blog – if you would like to see a slide show of our cast and Dr. Farrago’s Burlesque Theater show…Please check out this slide show.  Photography done my RMD at B-Fresh Photography –


Dr. Farrago’s Burlesque Theater: Behind-the-Scenes [NSFW], 12/7/12 – Minneapolis – Slideshows

For MJ’s Milk -n- Glitter Number, which I am describing below in an email letter to my pen pal paramour, at 3:30 am, after I took a shower to remove the glitter and milk from my body)

http://www.citypages.com/slideshow/jean-bardots-milk-and-glitter-performance-nsfw–38307658/

MJ is quite the woman! I laugh and I’m entertained as she enters back stage, beautiful and larger than life.  She brings a huge blow up; kiddie pool to the burlesque show last night, arriving after cast call, gives it to my stage managers and says, “Blow this up.”  I can’t believe that several of the guys backstage accomplished this enormous task by the end of the night. MJ’s number was the last number on the show roster.  She and HZ and CS, had performed the cutest number to the song, Coin Operated Boy, earlier in the show. I was highly entertained.  It tickled me to see some of the performers in my old burlesque costumes, which I had passed down to some of the girls who I have known for a very long time.  MJ’s last performance was the finale of our show.  It took approximately three hours to blow up this inflatable, colorful, plastic pool by mouth and human breath.  I felt sorry for the guys who worked so hard to please and assist her.  However, her performances onstage tonight was memorable and astounding.   No one really seemed to mind.

 I admire how MJ is still so full of life.  My eyes can never tire of her stoic and graceful performances.  I love when she comes out on stage in a red Geisha robe and matching Asian parasol.  My eyes drink her in deeply – she is sensuous, intoxicating and sizzling hot!  Next, she undresses slowly and artistically.  Her robe falls like a silk fountain to the floor.  MJ is so bewitching as she dips herself gracefully and glamorously into the pool.   She’s now very scantily clad in black and red, Asian lingerie.  The crowd gasps as she finishes stripping.  Their eyes are wide and their mouths are open, cheering or gasping.  Some of the audience member’s are dropping their jaws, low and wide, because they are stuck in a state of awe.  Neither the audience’s eyes nor mine could stop from staring as she elegantly poured vintage, glass bottles of creamy white milk down her body slowly and provocatively.  MJ’s performance was flawless and entrancing. She appeared so sumptuous performing her Milk -n- Glitter number.  I never tire seeing her perform this.

Suddenly, the crowd grows wild.  A small crowd of happy people storm the front of the stage with tips of money waving in their titillated hands.  MJ desperately wants to please them, but continues on with her dance – to remain in cue with her music.  She has her own personal cues and her erotic music will end soon.  The people near the stage are MJ’s friends and they stretch their bodies as far as they could, mid-stage.  Anxious hands tug on the top of the colorful, kiddie – pool, which tips in their direction, splashing milk and saturating themselves and the Ground Zero stage.  MJ is laughing and hooting and giving the people near the stage the attention they seek and taking the time to take their tips, as graciously as she can.

When MJ quickly escapes her fans and friends, she eventually gets the opportunity to finish her number.  MJ dances and moves so lasciviously, pouring the remaining bottles of thick milk down her long, lean body.  Soon, it began to shower sparkles which appeared to flit in the air around her luscious body like happy, tiny fire flies.  A rain shower of sparkles poured over her glamorous, glimmering, wet, milk laden body, with a downfall of beautiful, shimmering, eye catching, gold glitter.

The music ends.  Her number is not finished. I can see on her face that MJ is not happy.  She is continuing onward with determination and disgust, pouring milk down her glossy black locks of glamorous hair.  Milk is dripping quickly downward and blinding MJ’s eyes.  Before she is completely canopied by what American Television ads and glossy, magazine ads portray as Milk – It Does a Body Good, she is glaring and snarling at the DJ booth hoping that they will re-start her music.  I am on the catwalk, where I used to Go-Go dance, dangling my head downward and staring so hard in the direction of the DJ booth, hoping that they could telepathically hear my thoughts, “RESTART THE MUSIC!”

Somehow MJ finds the energy and her zone to get past having to do the rest of her number in silence.  Suddenly, the roar of the crowd becomes her music and inspiration.  She appears so sexy when she finishes with a big finale, pouring the last bit of glitter down her tall, elegant, stoic, long and lean body.  The lighting is perfect!  Thank you to the GZ crew and my show manager!  I often think that the smoke machines smell gross, but the appearance of them appear as if come-hither like fog – as we all perform on stage.  It adds a sense of mystery to our show.  On this most recent show night, I thought MJ appeared so glamorous under the rays of well staged lighting and puffs of fake, chemical fog – the crowd grew so animated and enthralled!

When MJ’s act is finally finished, she is full of milk and glitter and she rubs her shimmering, wet body all over everyone who encounters her path, as she makes her way back stage, including my husband.  She and he are close.  I am okay with that.  He is generally the first to be inflicted by Milk –n- Glitter by her, and he always loves it.  He does not mind that he is now covered with an overload of gold sparkles, which plaster him from his black fedora, to his happy face, and upon his black leather coat.  Mr. C does not even mind  the small splashes of Milk –n- glitter upon his worn, black leather shoes.

When the show ended and I rushed offstage after curtain call, to remove the tables off the dance floor, run clear plastic cups, some still filled with melting ice, diluted liquor, and thin, colorful, plastic straws, to the bar.  Rapidly, I was assisting my show staff with the large task of removing our red table cloths, which we have to pull quickly from each table.  The red table clothes, which took Mr. C hours to launder while I rehearsed at the loft for several weeks.  After cast call, I recall my mind and body rushing like a Greyhound dog chasing a mechanical rabbit around a race track.  I was in such a hurry.  I helped some faithful staff refold them, so that we put them away in a large storage container.  The night club employees and the Farrago staff are often rushed after a show, removing the tables as rapidly as we can, so that the remaining guests can dance, until the night club closes.  When I was done with clearing the floor and packing up my stuff, I practically crawled up the stage steps, entering the back stage area.  My legs trembled as I descended the back stage, dressing room steps.   I still had much to do.  My night was not over and my mind was racing with my internal task list, which I need to remember in order to end my show and send my tired cast home.

 Suddenly I was spellbound.  Before I knew it I was trapped like a glamorous spider catches a vulnerable fly.  I was hypnotized, strolling past MJ, who shimmered so brightly in gold glitter that it hurt my eyes.  She is appearing frisky and fierce in her simple white cotton bath robe, hoping to contain her mess until she can take a shower.  She’s riding the high of her performances.  And she should!  I always love to see MJ perform.  She graces the stage with her unique energy, talent, and burlesque beauty.  She is a  Minneapolis, Burlesque legend.  She is the Queen of Ground Zero!  She and I were doing burlesque at GZ before the burlesque revival began in Minneapolis.

I often feel cosmically connected to MJ.  She’s been a huge inspiration for me for over a decade.  I often adore her.  On this night my passion and free spirit could not be confined.  I felt adoration as I observed MJ’s beautiful face sparkle with thick coat of gold glitter when I sauntered past her with aching legs and feet, so that I could talk with my dependable, show manager, J.M.  We needed to figure out our show payout.  It’s now after one a.m.  My performers are exhausted and are continuing to wait patiently to get paid.  The dressing room is full.  Without warning, MJ stretches out on the ragged couch back stage and grabs me firmly with her long, lean legs and holds my body tightly against hers.  Her skin, which is smooth as silk, peeks out from her white, cotton bathrobe.  My eyes sparkle like her gold glitter and my heart races with raw stimulation.  MJ’s determined and her strong legs are presently wrapped  salaciously around my fatigued body.  My rubbery legs and weak body attempt to struggle and fight for release – attempting to escape and move onward with show business.  However, her long, lean, muscular legs are strong and steel – like.  Her legs are a vicious weapon – an impossibly strong vice.  I cannot escape like Houdini from intricate handcuffs beneath water.

Once more, I observed my remaining cast who are impatient and want to be paid their small fee of 35 dollars per number. That is all that I can afford.  I actually gave them five dollars extra for the Holidays.  I normally can only afford to pay 30 dollars for one number, sometimes only 25 dollars for a majority of my cast.  I also pay for the crew, guest performers, higher paid performers with bigger names, and advertising out of my personal budget.  I sacrifice and work hard at what I do.  And I love living the life as a passionate woman who has lived some of her life on stage being a Minneapolis, burlesque star.  I’d rather have this experience than high fashion clothes and fast, fancy cars.  I am never bored.  I like life this way.

I’m returning to my story about MJ in the dressing room, backstage.  This amazing woman who is renown around the world as a top Dominatrix and an icon in the fetish film and photography industry, is down to earth tonight, and is suddenly extremely intimate with me.  Mr. C observes from the top of the back stage stairs, containing his hard-on with class and respect for MJ, whose behavior is much like a sensuous cat in heat.  I love to please him with unexpected, carnal visions.  I love MJ when she is larkish, wicked and insousiant.  On this particular evening, my body swooned with ardor and salacious energy, when I felt her playful hands press my body so firmly against hers.  I no longer cared about her Milk -n- Glitter mess.  I was in shock when she wantonly pressed my head so firmly and dominately to her glittering breasts.  I now have glitter in my eyes and in my mouth and it is inescapably in my ear canals and dark curly hair.  I daringly call her a bitch a few times as I try to escape…she is calm, yet stern.  I am pushing buttons I probably should not.  Impulsively, I bit her right nipple with  erotic instinct and human nature.  It was delicious.  I did not care if I would be punished.

Now her hands are firmly gripping my ass.  We stare at each other with female rapacity – the Dominant against the submissive.  My zipping atoms and rushing blood cells explode  inside my body with fervid emotions and unleashed desires. I felt an arousing sensation of warm, rushing tingles, when she tells me she has a new toy she wants to try on me.  I raise my eyebrows with curiosity and grin so naughtily.   Much of my cast is still waiting for pay and I can’t escape.  Eventually MJ releases me, bored I cannot provide any more entertainment for her.  I can’t go further, I have business to tend to.  I am no longer useful.  I am grateful and I rush off with a horny ache in between my fatigued, yet, overheated sex.  My black lace panties were soiled from this late night.  It was a titillating, fleeting moment with MJ.  I stain those moments into my memory when they occur.  I finally pay my cast and begin the large task of taking down the show, and out loading our equipment.  Yet, my aching feet floated on air with a large grin on my face, spreading from ear to ear.  I am so very high from show!  I absolutely LOVE nights like this.

Good night, Mon Ami, must sleep, Mia.

I must emphasize again, it was a great show to help make a happy ending to my book!  Prior to my reawakening, I went into recluse for many months, battling demons and monsters, moving beyond obstacles and climbing upwards again towards a new look on life.  My life is an amazing journey, which I may only have a short time to experience.  I intend to live intensely.  I refuse to give up living my life with purpose and passion.  I have passed this philosophy down to some of my children.  I feel good about that. I may not have the most glamorous attire, or fancy car, but I live a race-y, artsy, amorous and glamorous life!   I am looking forward to my next adventure.   I still have so many old adventures to tell you about my life, Henry.  My letters to you, ma chère Henry, are not over.  I am just taking a little repose, before I start Mia Loves Henry Miller, Book Number 2.  My life is all about journeys and mysteries.  I cannot wait for another mysterious adventure to begin.

As I have been re-reading the letters which I have been writing to you, getting them ready for editing,  I observe that I converse about my headaches often, or sometimes an illness.  I almost thought about deleting all of my sentences and paragraphs which communicate about the flaws in my body and portray only a perfect type of healthy woman.  After many hours of deep thought, I decided that I don’t want to be portrayed as perfect.  I just want to be portrayed as me – the real me.  We are all made of the good and the bad.  It’s what gives us character.  If my readers will step back far enough and really observe in their mind’s eye – they will see that I am like a beautiful, Frida Kahlo portrait, full of pain and pleasure.  frida-kahlo-the-two-fridas-c-1939

Now, that the show is over, my exhaustion overwhelms me.  My body aches and my feet throb uncomfortably.  I am soaking in a hot, bath tub, in the silence at my loft, a few days after our show.  I have another burlesque show to rehearse and perform in on this upcoming Thursday night.  It was nice to be invited by another local Burlesque troupe.  I’m in my artistic tower which crowds the Twin Cities’ skyline – my view is balancing between St. Paul and Minneapolis.  My thoughts often drift in between the pages of the book I am avidly reading.  Soon, I find myself drifting into a very nice day dream.  The hot waves of water are accompanied with large doses of Baking Soda to soothe my aches and pains from dancing and writing for long hours.  My body relaxes, submerged in water, and I imagine, “Paris 2013.”

I fantasize about getting off the plane at Charles De Gualle airport.  I feel a bit lost.  It’s been a long flight.  I am dressed comfortably in faded jeans, black, worn and comfortable, Nike tennis shoes, and a colorful layer of several shirts beneath a short, smooth, black leather coat.  I am trying to find my way to the luggage area, following people I do not know.  My eyes digest the assortment of people who are walking hypnotically, attired in a variety of American and European fashions.  French, the language of love is spoken all around me, echoing like poetry in my ears.  The myriad of people are in a hurry, their assortment of colorful, fashionable shoes shuffle, skip and scurry forward, as if they know where to go.  I follow them and I finally find my way to the luggage area.  And I wait for my bags to appear upon the airport carousel.

Prior to the plane landing, I had been reading a compelling story sent to me in a PDF file, which I had printed upon many sheets of paper, days prior to departing Minneapolis/St. Paul.  It was written by a good friend, whom I met upon this amazing, literary journey, as I was writing my letters to you, Henry. He is also a big fan of yours.  Everyone around the world seems to be.  You have departed wonderful literature behind, imprinting your soul into our future. This author’s story has completely entertained me upon my long flight, distracting the discomfort of sitting too long. My thoughts kept flashing to the main character in this story.  I’m intoxicated and I am enamored with this significant and prolific author’s written words.  I cannot escape how I feel.

Suddenly, an amorous whisper blows gently past my ear, and I hear a handsome gentleman softly speak with a European accent, “Bon Jour, Mon chère, Mia.

I turn slowly, inhaling the musky scent of Drakkar Noir. My heart races – it is him – my pen pal paramour.  I am breathless.  I want to fall into the depths of Paris’ artistic and literary world with him.  I want to breathe in his ingenuity and his passion for literature and theater.  He can show me things that I have always fantasized or read about in novels. I want to experience a journey filled with romance, if only for a small segment in time and space.  I desire to live my adventurous life for as long as I possibly can. Experiencing mystery and new journeys in life is what life should be! I am so glad that I am feeling stronger every day and my dark travels have ended.  I feel merry and bright for taking this journey over this past year with you, my spiritual paramour – my dear Henry Miller.  Thank you for your inspiration and this passionate, literary journey.

I must end this letter and take a long, hot bath.  It is now 11:41 p.m. on 12/11/12.  I feel a rush of accomplishment. This first collection of letters written to you, is finally complete!  My muscles are still sore from Friday night’s show and for writing for long hours over the past few days on your last letter.  I felt determined to live my dreams and finish this first book of letters, written to you,Henry. This past Friday night I danced onstage with great strength and new energy.  I feel balanced emotionally.  I am at peace again.  I look forward to performing my dance number again on Thursday evening for another burlesque show.  Your book, The Air Conditioned Nightmare, is waiting for me.  Are you ready for me to ravish your words?

I will miss you as I get this manuscript ready.  I will write ASAP.

Je T’aime Mon Amour, Henry Miller

Avec tout mon couer – with all of my heart

  but mine were not the wings for such a flight.
Yet, as I wished, the truth I wished for came 

cleaving my mind in a great flash of light.

Here my powers rest from their high fantasy,
but already I could feel my being turned –
instinct and intellect balanced equally

as in a wheel whose motion nothing jars –
by the Love that moves the sun and other stars.

Dear Henry,

I am typing this letter to you, sitting upon my soft, brush suede brown, living room sofa, alone, at my artist loft.  I have just returned from physical therapy.  There is a small, beautiful, blue knitted blanket, which use to belong to Mr. B’s mother, casually folded and placed next to me, just in case my feet get cold. It’s placed where Mr. B use to sit as we engaged in conversation, cuddled, or ate dinner together. Because it…

I’m writing this letter on 6/27/2112 at 2:41 P.M.

Dear Henry,

“First it was a broken toe, then a broken brow, and finally a broken heart. But, as I said somewhere, the human heart is indestructible. You only imagine it is broken.  What really takes a beating is the spirit. But the spirit too is strong and, if one wishes, can be revived.” –Henry Miller, Insomnia or The Devil at Large

I’m at home in the suburbs with my four dogs, six doves and my husband.  I am comforted by their unconditional love.  A new baby dove has been born.  She looks like a girl.  I am thinking about calling her June, because she was born during the month of June.  I’m also calling her June after Henry Miller’s infamous wife, June.  The…

Dear Henry,

“I don’t care who the artist is, if you study him deeply, sincerely, detachedly, you will find that he and his work are one.  If it were otherwise the planets would be capable of leaving their orbits.” –Henry Miller, Art and Outrage

I have returned to my artist loft today.  I’ve been working on a very large, existing portrait for the television mural project, which I have been working on for numerous months.  It is almost complete.  I’m proud of the work that I’ve accomplished so far.  As I have been painting, I’ve been listening to James Patterson’s, The Women’s Murder Club, Volume 1.  The setting of this mystery novel takes place in San Francisco, one of my favorite cities to visit.  It reminds…

Dear Henry,

I have missed writing to you so much!  I haven’t been able to write due to working night and day, around the clock, to meet a couple of previous art deadlines.  My art show in Maple Grove, Minnesota was a success.  For the past several weeks, I’ve been continuing to experience severe headaches, resulting from three bulging discs in my neck, as well as severe TMJ, and advance…
