I’ve been gone a while. A lot has changed in that time. There have been so many changes – I have: moved house… a few times, stood up to an abusive (now ex) housemate; battled real estates and took one (plus the ex housemate) to tribunal; realised the true strength of some friendships; found love; moved in love; persevered through our time at a house that ultimately should never have been put up for rent to begin with; and am currently in a happy transition with work and moving house once more – this time to one that we’ll share indefinitely. There’s always a dash of family drama at play and I’m hoping to share more on that in a later post.
There have been so many lessons learned in this period. About personal power, overcoming fear, asserting my own needs, standing my ground (without needing to turn to anger), and meeting my needs before turning to others; and that some people really will change their minds about you (negatively) when they find out you’re gay.
I have learned that even a change from one good thing to another holds its own grief. And that some things need to be let go more than once. I have also learned to look at people as they are than as I believe them to be. And also to hope others would do the same for me.
There’s a lot to say and plenty to share. I look forward to finding moments to share it with you.
In the meantime – wherever you are and whoever you be – stay you. Be kind to yourself.
With love from my crooked curve of the world.

So happy that Marriage Equality laws have finally been passed in Australia! Yesterday parliament sat and (thankfully) very quickly dismissed all the proposed bylaws that may have allowed discrimination against marrying same sex couples, before later the same day finalising the legislation. What a day to be alive and part of the LGBT+ community 😄🏳️🌈 […]

You are so blinded by your fear. Wanting to belong and yet afraid to be seen. Hiding in the shadows and wondering why no-one notices you. You became so afraid of what others think that you stopped trying to find out. Assuming it would be different. Guessing what it might be. Maintaining your fears and […]

A little while back I decided to venture back in to the online dating world to see what new adventures it may hold. I knew what it meant to 'swipe left' and to 'swipe right'; I knew how to set search parameters… I've even navigated a few dates. Though before getting to the dating part […]

Every now and then I meet someone and my heart opens. Whether compassionately or romantically, my heart opens and is flooded with warmth, fuzziness and general adoration. I met someone recently with whom I shared this connection. There were beautiful conversations and shared values; common interests; and a language of love that flowed easily and […]

I opened the curtains and lay back in bed. Enjoying the soft morning sunlight as it danced across my skin. This moment of being and enjoying. Nowhere to be, nothing else to do… simply to exist in this moment of tranquility. Calm amongst the clamours of life. Connecting with the sunlight and the day that […]

Do you ever look back on certain periods of your life and start to notice little patterns? I’ve begun to notice a few of mine when it comes to dating… Without any intention on my part the last three people I went on dates with all had the same star sign… which also happened to […]

I went on a date recently. One of those dates where you meet for a coffee/tea/beverage after work. And so of course the evening prior I spent about an hour pondering – what to wear?! The outfit had to be something suitable for my professional workplace, and at the same time I didn’t want to […]
