The Prompt: What do you wish you had more time to do each day? Oh, this is easy – I would  like more time to talk with Ledcat. Our morning conversations are usually a series of short grunts, mumbles, reminders as she gets ready to leave for work and I try to get ready to do […]

These Are Five of My Favorite Things

Sound of Music

A classic question, revisited: what are the five items you must have on a deserted island? It is a challenge to take this question seriously – it’s so pop psychology meets Facebook meme with a dash of 19th century fascination with all things exotic and deserted thrown in for good measure. I mean you rationalize […]

So, what will happen if an out athlete becomes an Olympic champion?

Via Buzzfeed Sochi is almost here. It has a very immediate impact on LGBTQ Pittsburgh – our beloved Evgeni Malkin is Russian and will play for Team Russia. His teammates, some of whom have spoken openly as allies, will play for Team USA. That’s nothing new. But they all have LGBTQ fans here in the US (and elsewhere.) […]

Luke Spencer. No Apologies.

The Prompt: Who is your favourite character of all time? So this is tricky because “all time” means of all the time and I’m not good with commitment. I also have a penchant for disillusionment – am I alone in finding Little Women disappointing as an adult? I mean – the domestic goddess Meg scenes […]
