It was Christmas, my birthday, and Father's Day rolled into one this morning. I'm not sure I should be posting something so personal. My son and I share breakfast out, three or four mornings every week. We're squeezing in time this rushed week with not a minute to spare. From time to time he'll mention … Continue reading Father and Son .
After the crazy day racing across Tennessee, only to arrive four hours early for my dance, I needed to get my act together. I turned my full attention to my upcoming stay in NYC, going forward two weeks to AMUUSE camp in Michigan. Distances, days, probable overnight locations.

That said, in the policy of “look but don't touch” I did permit myself ample opportunity to visit “gentleman's clubs”, … Continue reading Supporting Single Moms
While still married I had been on many internet dating sites, looking to find a local bay area woman seeking “just friends”, for coffee and gossip. I attended church pot-lucks, belonged to many social and political groups, and attended (even headed up) meet-up groups. But I missed having one-on-one time with caring empathetic people (that … Continue reading Coffee Dates & FetLife
