I took this photo on the morning prior to a "training session" with my slave. We were reenforcing the four positions that I assign for the body to be open to my wishes. First position is a yogic "child's pose" with head to the floor, knees tucked under, and arms stretched out. It's a resting pose, as well as a restorative one. Second position, the supplicant is at attention on their knees, straight back, straight neck, elbows at right angles by the body, with palms facing up, as if holding a service tray. Third is a military "at ease" standing position. Hands behind the back and lifted above the buttocks. Head angled down. Straight back. In Fourth, the supplicant is flat on their stomach, hands close to their face, palms down against the floor. Legs spread. The four positions. It's like playing the scales. With practice and repetition, there comes a meditation on form and intention. From the basic notes, one may play and be played as a masterpiece.
*The image also reminds me of one of my favorite actresses, Isabella Huppert, in the movie, The Piano Teacher.
