Words: Resolution

Diet - J.V. Speyer

It’s a whole new year.  The holiday season is officially behind us and we’re one week into our “new year, new me” selves.  Many of us have made New Year’s resolutions to help ourselves try to be better people or somehow improve our lives going forward into 2019, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  It’s … Read more

Words: Progress

Dirt Road

Today’s word is progress.   I thought about a few other words. When my computer turned into a brick yesterday during an upgrade, I had a lot of words to use, and none of them were what I’d consider appropriate for this venue. When I sat there on Election Night and watched results coming in, … Read more

Words: History

I gave some real thought to what word to use for this month.  I’ll admit that most of the words I came up with weren’t exactly kind.  I’m sure you can figure out why, if you follow US current events at all.  Current events got me thinking, though, about history.  Who gets to write history?  … Read more

Words: Loved

Martini

How do you perceive love, when it’s shown to you?   I guess you could say this relates to “love languages,” or “languages of appreciation.”  It’s not so much about how you show love or appreciation, but about what flicks that switch for you. What makes you sit up and take notice that someone truly … Read more

Words: Heat

Words: Heat   This month’s word is heat.  It can’t be a surprise to anyone living in the US why this month’s word would involve high temperatures.  Most of the country has been dealing with scorching temperatures for a few weeks now, possibly as punishment for our climate sins.  I’m not someone who typically objects … Read more

Words: Frivolous

Frivolous

I had a very different post in mind for today. I had a post about Pride, because it’s June, and as part of my birthday “celebration” I’m going to my local Pride parade for the very first time at the youthful age of 43.  (Well, I’m turning 43.  I’m still bothered enough by society’s obsession … Read more

Words: Priorities

Office

This month’s post is primarily aimed at the writers among us, but readers and others might find it useful too. It’s not an exceptionally queer post, although I wrote it which puts a little rainbow sticker on it somewhere I guess. I want to talk about priorities this month. How do you set yours?  Where … Read more

Words: Family

The word I’d like to discuss for this month is “family.”  It might seem an odd choice for April, seeing as how we’re heading into spring (hah!) and renewal, rebirth, and all that jazz. April is also the month when many “ladies’” magazines start running features on baby shower planning, bridal shower planning, and all … Read more

Words: Anticipation

JV Speyer

As we inch our way into March, we find ourselves anticipating quite a few things. Maybe we’re waiting on a new release (ahem.)  Maybe we’re waiting for Spring – we had a few glimpses in February, but they seem buried under snow now that March is here. Maybe we’re waiting for a holiday like Easter … Read more
