Cold and Scared

This was supposed to be one of the stories I’ve been mulling about my brain lately for this week’s Wicked Wednesday, but I just couldn’t. I could even link this post “officially,” but it is simply not appropriate. October was to be the month that I quietly celebrated my fiftieth birthday. I don’t usually celebrate birthdays. This past month has …

Swinging in the Temporal Realm of COVID

Two of the Toronto sex clubs re-opened in recent weeks. Pardon me, Toronto’s lifestyle clubs. One of those clubs, Club M4, is a place my regular readers will recognize. In the club’s initial location, along Lake Shore Blvd in Toronto’s west end, it was the setting for the opening scene of my first novel, “Just Prey.” It was also the …

It’s Only Towel Day – Try Not To Panic

Douglas Adams died in 2001. Hard to say, but I am uncertain that the grief over losing him twenty years ago has yet ended. With this in mind, welcome to the twentieth anniversary of International Towel Day (May 25). The day created by Douglas Adams’ fans two weeks after his passing to remember Douglas and his works.

In One Convenient Package

Seeing as I embody all in one convenient package, it …

Now, Where Were We? – Polytix Episode 11

…and… we’re back after 2-1/2 years with Episode 11 of Polytix. This week, @LaurasPond and I discuss the benefits of dealing with people experienced in ethical non-monogamy and polyamory, as well as some boundaries that are difficult to see when dealing with inexperienced folk.

Polyamory and Introversion: The Anxiety of it All – A Blogiversery of Sorts

Nine years ago…Nov 15, 2010…I began the Stranded in Toronto site on WordPress. It seems like eons ago. I recall sitting at the computer and debating the title, finally settling on┬áStranded as I simply missed my Rocky Mountains. That’s right. They’re mine. You gonna make something of it? I was listening to the song linked above by Billy Joel as …
