I was born with the innate to let passion grab me, whirl me, take me and fling me to the winds. Music and boys were the passions of my young teen years and continued for many more. Once I had an instrument that could respond with a true and rich sound (stripped of its coats of hideous and...

My perfect relationship would be to have hot, hot passionate sex with my partner, then go off and follow whatever creative  pursuits might engage us -- some together, some on our own. Then we would come back, look at what we have done or listen to it, discuss it, then more sex, because that kind...

I'm doing the online dating thing. There. Full confession (or will be...If I find I have the nerve). As an informal student of the human spirit and the different ticking of the man/woman psyche, I had been intrigued by this popular phenomena -- but from a distance. Then my friend K., noting that we...

I had been thinking about starting a blog, a place where I could speak my mind, fling my arms wide, let my hair ruffle in the winds of time and life. What a gift to be given this haven among writers and lovers of the written word! So much has happened in my life and even my today is often much like...
