The power of submission lies not in the ability to kneel before another, to give over one's body or in the wearing of a collar.
The power of submission can be found only in the heart of one who gives her love to another freely knowing what joy and pain will come of it - Roguer

John Wetton, a bass player, vocalist and songwriter who adapted the dense, progressive rock he performed with bands like King Crimson into mainstream hits with the supergroup Asia in the early 1980s, died on Tuesday near his home in Bournemouth, England. He was 67.

His manager, Martin Darvill, said the cause was colon cancer.

RIP Joseph .


It was very sad to see his final scenes aired on Friday, February 10th 2017. He only appeared three times but he spoke no words and you could tell the Alzheimer's had taken its toll but his performance, we just facial expressions was powerful. It was clear in his face that he knew this would be his final ever scenes. It was fitting that his final on-screen appearance was with Dierdre Hall (Marlene Evans).
