“Peters, if you are going to post on the blog you’d better introduce yourself”.
Consensual adult discipline has stirred me from as far back as I can remember – certainly before Peters existed. My first experiences were back in the days of classified adverts and postcards in telephone boxes. Sadly they were rather guilt-ridden but sometimes gave huge joy – although others were surprising ..and not always in a good way. Eventually a classified advertisement introduced me to the much-missed, and possibly legendary, Miss Martindale and her Wildfire Club. Miss Martindale had an insouciant attitude to names: a person’s name was the one they happened to be using that day. Hey presto, Peters was born.
There has been a revolution since my beginnings and I welcome it. I first encountered Miss Svenson in a wonderfully atmospheric building in North London several years ago. Although Miss Svenson has moved location a couple of times since then, she has held strictly to her mantra from that time, “nothing bad happens here” – but creative things, playful things and wonderful things happen all the time around Miss Svenson and her collaborators. My younger self, Peters, enjoys the sparks flying in all directions at Well Smacked Seat.
