A vast majority of people around the World doesn’t realize about something like starlight. Nowadays, when skies are highly polluted with light, most of people cannot even see a Milky Way on the sky. It’s known a history, when during a huge power cut in Los Angeles in 1994 people were calling authorities, asking them […]

Can you imagine moving 300 miles away from all your friends and family with a tiny little newborn? How about having your fiance move to the Middle East just 3 weeks before your second child was due? Or, packing up a 3 bedroom house by yourself only to be told the new place is not […]

Well, maybe…perhaps…we’ll see… You ready for my earth-shattering revelation? It’s so simple: Something is better than nothing. I have a personality that tends to lean towards ‘if I can’t do it perfectly, it’s better not to do it at all’. It’s quite deeply ingrained into me. I think it even goes back into my childhood […]

Abuela's travel diaries

After crossing to Ventimiglia by train into Italy we got into a regional train that took us to Torino via Cuneo on June 11. We were able to ride around Ventimiglia before getting in the train and ride along the Mediterranean one last time. The train went through very scenic mountains that would have taken […]

If you saw my Instagram chats on Monday you would have heard me talk about Leandra Medine of Manrepeller and her very effective weekly round-up on Instagram. I’m following suit in the hope of reducing my time on social media, […]

Mark H. Miller's Blog

Words are important. The message is more. On this Father’s Day and the eve of starting a new year of the human journey, I saw something. But, first. I almost made a mistake. For the last month I’ve been reading the novels of Scott Pratt. Never heard of him, but when someone says he has […]

Thinking someone is ‘topping from the bottom’ is either a way to describe a dynamic where taking initiative and giving a lot of input from the bottom is *desirable* and not a problem for the people involved (so the rest of us need to shut up about it and maybe walk away to look at something more to our voyeuristic tastes). Or it’s a situation where there’s a mismatch between what people are trying to do and what they would actually like to do/what feels good to them (so it needs reaffirmation of consent, slowing down, and/or renegotiation — or an end to the scene/ relationship). In either case, threatening to accuse someone of ‘topping from the bottom’ in an attempt to keep them from expressing their desires, needs, or limits is always a shitty and manipulative move.

Our Smallholding Adventure

Not just the weekend but the last few months! It’s actually quite scary how it’s already June and the middle of June at that. We’ve been busy busy. This year we decided to reign back on the animals and get the house and outside sorted. We’d love to do everything at once but sadly everything […]
