But alone, without fantasy or the memory of being with a lover, I struggle to access this pleasure.
I don't believe in Tantra without a partner. I have used a healing guided meditation together with my partner, we sat naked and after when our hands and bodies were enlivened with spiritual energy, we gave each other a non-touch massage, using the energy from our fingertips just a few…
a reality. I will join the other 798,162 active novelists on six continents … Month (NaNoWriMo). Writing a 50,000-word novel is extremely difficult, I guess; I’ve never done it. But I do have a dream, and this is the year I will make that dream a reality. I will join the other 798,162 active novelists on six continents who share that dream.
I did the NaNoWriMo as a challenge a couple of years back and found it really dragged the creative out of me. I started, completely unprepared and let the story flow from one picture of a model in a vintage Dior Nightdress. I finished at 53000 words in about 3…
Once we settled into being locals in Little Havana and built up a reputation for scaring restaurant delivery boys into falling over their mopeds, people used to pop round to say hi. Sandra played on the attention like the star she has always been in my eyes, she had a…
The über-rich and powerful do not like liberality. They like people to be poor and dependent. I swear the US and the UK are on a race to the bottom. The Orange Menace may no longer occupy the White House, but his poisonous reach continues and his Mindless Minions press on.
Yes, there is a group of us that are talking about a publicity stunt or 2 to claim asylum in other countries to highlight how bad they are.
People are talking about a resistance movement already.
Even some British still believe their own hype about some of those points despite it being one of their main holiday destinations. I went there as a backpacker in the Franco era and it is so much better today than even parts of the UK. Which are becoming more like those Mexican border towns.
For all of you who are just starting out on your writing journey, like all things it doesn’t come easy for all. Some get lucky and some don’t. J.K. Rowling submitted her Harry Potter book to some 900 Literary Agents before someone took a chance on her, and John Grisham…
I've known people in similar situations and respect their choices made to survive, but I know many guys who would be disgusted by that.
I had to learn to lose my jealousy the hard way, while the love of my life at the time hooked in Dubai. It broke us up in the end, I cared too much for her safety, and the pressure of that care on her meant that she couldn't do her 'job,' which was her lifeline and her families.
My book Desert Loves 2 has all the angst, love, and actual emails & letters between us, I had to write it to finally get her out of my head.
Ha ha, very funny. As a Brit who worked in Houston on occasions I saw some who played up on it, but most were very gentlemanly, even the women.
Politically, yes most were frighteningly right of Gengis Khan.
The funniest thing that I saw though was when I took a…
