PolyAnna’s Musings: Relationships as group projects

PolyAnna’s musings: Please stop with “the most”

So hey there! I know I have been a stranger. Turns out being on the board of an emerging 501 c 3 is rather time consuming. That said, I am back and going to try to do more writing in 2016.

Letting go of the violent relationship language

I’ve been working on my presentations for my upcoming workshops. It’s been amazing. Yesterday, rereading some wise words written by dawn of Erotic Awakenings, it occurred to me.

PolyAnna: Hello, I’m bi too…

It is bi-visibility week. I have not gotten to participate in any of the fun events planned around my town, as I have been busy being a mom. That said, I have loved seeing the articles and listening to people tell their stories.
