This morning my son asked me if I missed my mother. He asks about her at the most random times and I can barely hold it together to answer him. Today was his Christmas concert. As I was getting ready I thought of my mother and how she would come to my school functions. Afterwards my brother left a comment on a picture that I look like her. Maybe she’s around today. Who knows. She’s on my mind nonetheless.

Relationship Stagnation Or Are We As Together As We’re Going To Be?
So I was thinking about my relationship with my boyfriend and it occurred to me that it’s very “high school” in nature. I don’t mean that in a trivial way though. I mean “high school” in the sense that adult aspects of our relationship just don’t exist.
Taken from the October issue of Ebony Magazine; I’m pretty sure it is readable from the photos I took. The first sentence of this article is extremely poignant;
"This is not a pleasant conversation to have with you because, in a sense, it is an acknowledgement that we have not created a world for you where this talk isn’t necessary."
Read that. Then read it again. And again. And marinate on that for a bit.
I never much care if people reblog stuff I post, but I hope people reblog this, because it’s pretty important on a lot of different levels.

Thoughts On My Responsibility To Others While Polyamorous
A few days ago it occurred to me that not only to do I have a responsibility to my boyfriend to not be reckless with his heart, but a responsibility to his family as well. I don’t intend to be reckless, but this was something I hadn’t thought about at all.

The Photo Shoot or What’s In Your Head Ain’t Always The Truth
The husband decided he wanted to be a photographer this morning. I was all apprehensive and self-conscious. Thoughts of what childbirth hath wrought in a photo did not make me feel good.
I laid there topless and in my Victoria’s Secret boyshorts for a few…
Am I Really Polyamorous?
I’ve been wrestling with the thought of what it means to be polyamorous for a few weeks. I’m carrying two relationships simultaneously. It’s not a secret (anymore) and yet I wonder if this is enough to wave the polyamorous banner.
I think the long…
