~Community~

I go back and forth about the poly community. Let’s backtrack.  There’s not much of a poly community here.  It’s a small-ish, conservative, fairly religious area.  Polyamory is still considered immoral by a lot of people, even if they aren’t religious at all.  I wasn’t out as poly for a long time, and now, thoughContinue reading “~Community~”

~Proven~

I like having relationships.  I like connection, and intimacy, and comfortably “fitting” with another person in some way.  This includes my children, my work friends, my sisters, not just romantic relationships.

~Me~

I have a job interview in the morning. Hospice. It’s a completely new area for me.  I’ve been in labor and delivery for almost nine years, and the idea of doing something new is terrifying and exciting.  I don’t know if this is something that will work for me, but I am happy to have somethingContinue reading “~Me~”

He’s older, educated,Continue reading “~Another~”

(I know I’m no spring chicken.  But come on!Continue reading “~Flight~”

~Onward~

Sometimes a really horrible thing can quickly shift your focus.  Reorder your priorities.  Give you some clarity. I’ve applied for a new job with a local hospice.  I’ve made some peace with Mrs. A.  I’m determined to love my people and let myself be loved. I’m also not sleeping well.  I dream all night, every night,Continue reading “~Onward~”
