Both are outside my window today as I write. Fall has been quite lovely here and my birthday has passed (fairly quietly this year as was my want). Dinner and karaoke where I sang the Commodores "Easy" and my tribute to Tom Petty - "American Girl" .  I will never forget...

One of the most magical times of the year! When all the hippie faeries show their true colors and it's just beautiful to behold! Days of barefoot walking and no showers, using port-o-potties, indulging as much as possible, great food, fire. songs on the bus, crazy cost...

Hello Snowpocalypse 2017! As if a foot of snow isn't enough, I'm sick on top of it! Backpage has been shut down, and I can only imagine how many of the million women and girls working in the United States are concerned for their livelihood as well as the little freedom...

Merry Christmas Y'all! Happy Hannukah, Festivus and Kwanzaa too! It's been a lovely, quiet and mellow holiday so far. I may be Jewish by birth but I have always loved Christmas. Probably because my dad did so much. Every year we had a tree - a big tree - with all the t...

Summer will soon be over. It seemed to happen late. It seemed to happen fast. It seemed to happen before i even knew it had happened. It seemed to happen like a tornado, but a most wonderful kind.

Things are great in the land of AJ. I finally got my east coast bestie o...

That sounds about right, eh? Summer seems to have snuck up on me - perhaps while I was away. But I find myself making plans for August already and that - while being a wonderful thing to have events and visiting friends to look forward to - also makes me think I need t...

Since I was young, I have dreamed of a life that included world travel. Europe was generally the target of my fantasy - Greece (thanks to the film Shirley Valentine), Italy, France and Spain. When the time came and I was finally considering the reality of travel, I re-...

Superbly timed, I'm finally updating my blog and it's International Women's Day. I spent a few days last week at the Seattle SASS Symposium. A conference for sex workers and their supporters. It was a small but amazing group of women (and a few men) who work hard, put...
