Hello beautiful beings,
The snow is falling in a mad flurry in Denver, a reminder that winter has not yet wrapped up and that it is okay to still have our spirits bundled up kept warm. I have been dancing with my own complexities of spirit and body alike, finding support when I remember to during the challenges of relationship evolution, body pain, and emotional flow alike. Perhaps my spine and hips have known the snow is coming again, or perhaps it is simply being in my body.
Yesterday I was given the chance to talk with someone else who dances with the complexities of vertigo, double-sightedness, falls, and other ways the body’s perceptions of reality and how we move in it are different from the world at large. Not only was it heart-filling to remind myself and others that we are not alone, but also offer practical tools. I got to tell the story of my dizziness specialist in Anchorage, Dr. Beal, who literally prescribed me a Nintendo Wii as a way to practice maintaining balance when not in the midst of a dizziness spell. As penguins appear on the screen move and sway your iceberg, and in my world at large it is a reminder that in good times we should move and sway our icebergs, practice our tools when the world is not in emergency.
It has been a while since I have posted a newsletter. In the midst of challenges, it has fallen below the fold as it were. I love these chances to connect with you all though, so my hope is to get back into the pattern monthly or twice a month. I would like it though because I miss you, miss how we connect here.
In the past 6 weeks over on Patreon, I have had a chance to connect with my Patrons regularly though:
- Sacred Kink Audio – A Call to Awakening and Glossary for Sacred Kink
- Diverse Desires Class – Live and Recording
- Tarot Spreads Funny and WTF
- How to Tie a Hand-Incorporating Blindfold
- The Essay “Queer Enough: Imposter Syndrome and Gatekeeping in Sexuality and Identity Communities”
- The rough essay “Love Languages of Grief”
