I just checked out your site and it is awesome! My partner of almost 22 years and I live in Portland, OR and hope that our state will legalize gay marriage next year! I hope that you got to the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival this year! I attended once, in 1982, and loved it even though I was still married to a man at the time! 8000 to 10,000 women standing together arm in arm singing "Waterfall" with Cris Williamson was one of the definite high points!

My partner and I attended the West Coast Women's Music Festival in Yosemite about 10 years ago and that was great fun but pretty tame compared to Michigan!

I love that you set your stories in different countries and that you have combined your passions for travelling and writing!

Hello Portland

I am a lesbian married to Trish and we are currently house-sitting in Europe. I blog on my site and try to make it a welcoming site for our persecuted sisters. Trish and I are retired teachers. My stories will be subtitled "Michigan Bound" as my heroines have one thing in common...travelling from different countries and backgrounds to the Michigan Women's Festival. I am getting ready to e-publish them and they are on my site (several chapters) to give readers a feel of them. Thanks for your supportive comments.

I hate to admit it, but I have not been to Michigan, but Trish has gone to one.
We have been together fifteen years.

Peace to you too


Looking forward to being friends.

My Apologies

My Apologies for not having returned to this site for over a year. I hope Oregon has legalized same sex marriage by now.
I'll check this out later. I'm a big Cris Williamson fan - saw her with Tret on several occasions.
My site has nearly 94,000 hits and thank you for your support and kind words.
Trish and I have been together for sixteen years and we are currently house/pet sitting in France (Oct 30, 2014).

I will get to Michigan!

Best wishes and hugs to you both from Trish and myself.

Oregon did legalize same sex marriage this year and we will probably marry next year. Where in France are you house-sitting? I would love to be able to do more travelling!

House-sitting in Europe sounds wonderful and I think you need to experience Michigan first-hand sometime!

Take care!
