Several of my books, including the one I co-authored with my pal sexuality consultant Dave Hingsburger (you’ll get hooked on his blog), had great runs with the original publishers. The one with Dave got translated into German, then Italian, and we hear rumours of a Korean version. We found the cover on line, but sadly, couldn’t figure out how to order it! I still get requests for books and because the rights have come back to the author(s), even ones out of print, we are making them available as PDFs on DVDs, including Sexuality. Here’s a list; if you’d like to order–or if you know people who might–please get in touch with me and share this flier. Thanks!
I’m the worst (just ask my son-in-law) for wanting to soak up as much as I can with my camera. So it was with no small twinge that agreed to my pal Heather Fritz’s request to tweak her first posting for her Stuff in my Head blog. As a wedding photographer (the best one I know!), she’s had her share of competition with guests for the shots she’s been hired to get. In September, our youngest son Ben was married on the beach in Tulum, Mexico. Ben and Julia’s friend and officiant Andi invited everyone to join her in “the mystical ritual of silencing and turning off cell phones and cameras” so that we could all be with Ben and Julia and this once-in-a-lifetime assembly. After I got over my initial moment of panic to be without a camera, I felt I could take a deep breath and take in the moments with such clarity. As Nate played guitar and Ragan sang a beautiful, original piece of music, some sort of large sea bird circled lazily over the gathering, gliding up and around on thermals while he, too, kept an eye on what was happening before us. Thanks, Heather, for the reminder to be with the people we love, not just their pixels.
I’m happy to pass along this info from the U of S Best Buddies chapter. Jim’s been a part of this for several years now and has made some wonderful friends:
March is Best Buddies Awareness Month. Our annual Toast to Friendship fundraiser is underway. The restaurants taking part are Bliss Fine Food, Rembrandts Fine Dining and Wine Bar, 6 Twelve, The Freehouse, Flint Saloon, The Rook and Raven, Yard and Flagon Pub, and Prairie Harvest Café. A portion of their wine sales goes to support the U of S Best Buddies program. So keep these restaurants in mind next time you go out!
A little bit of friendly can turn into something else. See what a little wave can do for the waver and the wavees.
