Dance Floor Crush (or Maybe They Should Play More Couples Songs at the Goth Club)

Tweet It wasn’t so much an accident as it was a gesture. Not a Grand Romantic Gesture. More of a “it seemed like the right thing to do” gesture. Whatever it was, it lead to me being on the dance floor with a beautiful woman in my arms, both of us laughing a bit and […]

Caught Up, Swept Away, Crushed, Whole Again

Tweet At the beginning it’s easy to get caught up. Caught up in the rush of the crush. In the glorious spin of possibilities. In the wild imaginings of what most certainly will be. Our hearts and minds soar, our heads spin, our toes barely touch the ground. Sure there is fear and worry, but […]
