Specific Thanks…

In the past week and a half, I have been profoundly thankful. Tears have been shed, realities have been turned upside down, and its led to more than a few ahas. Some of them, I pray, will stick. I have sent out a LOT of thank you notes. I am still working on them, but there are a few folks who I have been unable, through a LOT of facebook, email and twitter searches to find. I tried google… some of you are slippery! So- Elisabeth: Thank you for the vitamin A… I am taking it daily 🙂 Eliza: thank…

Blown Away By Generosity

24 hours ago I posted a call for assistance.  Hoping to get rent covered, maybe the bills, fingers crossed. I have been blown away by the generosity and outpouring of love Aiden and I have received. Between paypal, checks we know are on the way, and other items, our immediate financial concerns are all set.  It’s been… inspiring.  I have broken down crying at points, curled up and gaped at my sister a few times, forwarded amazing emails onto Aiden (and had him do the same). At the International Parliament for World Religions last year, I listed myself as a…

My capacity to pay my…

Late Night Gratitude

It’s 4am, and no rest for the wicked it seems… or less wicked, and more set for seeing what comes next. Through a strange set of circumstances, my Boy and I were approved by my doctors to travel, drugs upped and emergency plans made- and off we went by chinatown bus to DC for the Master/slave Conference.  I had grand plans of attending everything Friday and Saturday before we have to fly to Ireland.  Instead, I made it to the keynote speech that Race Bannon gave Friday night (a fantastic andmuch needed piece on the core tradition in Leather being…

Classes/Events Cancelled

For those who have been following me on Twitter or Facebook, you have seen that I have been ill for the past 6 weeks.  I am cancelling most of my work between here and the end of the year, because I have a strong belief that my students deserve the best- and that is not me at this time. I sincerely apologize to Open Love NY, The Floating World (NJ), Kink Academy, Rope Camp,  Fascinations in Phoenix, and Kinky & Geeky AZ for classes I had to cancel at last minute in the past 6 weeks.  I am now having…
