So yesterday was National Women’s Day, and women who could afford it stopped doing all the good stuff they do to make it the Day Without a Woman, and God bless them. Big symbolic gestures made by the people who can afford them are how most of the good in this world gets started. But … Continue reading The Day After the Day Without a Woman: A Letter to Four Men
I'm lucky enough to have a story in this--"The Dark Lady" about a transgender actress in the days of Shakespeare. But even if I didn't, I'd promote the living juice out of it.

If the cultural life of human beings had been dependent on me being able to paint a bison on … Continue reading My Love Affair With Artists (particularly one)
Four years ago today, I was scared out of my mind. The man I was pretty sure I loved, maybe, certainly, possibly, how the heck can you tell over the Internet? was coming to meet me in person at last. We had met two years before that in Second Life and hit it off like … Continue reading The Very Best Thing That Ever Happened
