Good grey morning to you. Outside, the sky is clouded with mist and the daffodils have begun to show their yellow faces. I wonder if I will ever get used to California. Where I’m from, February, late winter, is the time of near despair: when will it ever end? It’s the time of seed catalogs and beginning to dream of spring. Punxsutawney Phil had some real news to deliver — please, please say it’s going to be an early spring, Mr. Groundhog. I don’t know how much more of this cold I can stand. But here out west, the bulbs start shooting up in January, and as the light begins to change, it feels like spring already even in these early months. How does the body learn to acclimate to a new way of being?
There’s quite a bit going on around here: Body Heat, Fierce Hunger, and a whole lot of workshops! Continue reading
We’re back on the West Coast, and coming to San Francisco, Ashland, Portland, Olympia and Seattle! Performing femmes include Kathleen Delaney-Adams, Alex Cafarelli, Al Schlong, The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins, and Jen Cross. This tour includes several opportunities to write with the femmes, and special guests at nearly every show! Come out and join us!

Being back from tour requires a kind of re-entry –it’s, yes, a bumpy ride. I can’t wait to tell you all about these last 10 days on the road in the Southeast with Body Heat!
Just a quick hello to everyone! I’m out on the road with the Body Heat tour, and it’s strange not to have a computer or other way to regularly check email and/or update this blog — we’re having fun in the South, though, soaking up hot sun and thickening into the thunderstorms, loving the deep green and meeting wonderful folks. We’re in Nashville now, heading out to Planet Ida (also in Tenn. — we’ll be caming!), and tomorrow we’re going to rock Asheville! Love these women — I’m so grateful to get to be here.

(And just so you know, I thank you for the way you are present to all the green things around you, and always for your words.)

In just a day or so, I’ll be on tour with the Body Heat: Queer Femme Porn tour. This is the fifth iteration of this tour, and the fourth one I’ve participated in.
It’s strange for me, to have this be a normal thing to say: “Yeah, I won’t be here for that event, I’ll be on tour.” On tour? Me? How did that happen?

I would like to still be asleep this morning. Some mornings are like that.
We head out on into the deep deep (ahem) South in less than a month! Can’t wait!
Body Heat: Femme Porn Tour 2011
The fifth installment of Body Heat: The Femme Porn Tour is set to hit the road April 15th with a long-overdue focus on the South East.
It’s a Monday morning here, and beautiful — slow blue filling the sky, and I keep my eye out for the deer that like to stroll along the hill behind our apt building, munching on grass and weeds, keeping a kind of watch.
Thanks to all who came out for this month’s Writing the Flood! We had a fantastic gathering of folks in a new, gorgeous, peaceful space over in Berkeley — I’m imagining, for a time, that maybe we’ll move back and forth between San Francisco and the East Bay for this workshop. Our April Writing the Flood meets on the 9th, which is the second Saturday of the month — on the third Saturday, I’ll be celebrating good friends getting married, then will head south for the Body Heat: Queer Femme Tour!
The tour hits the road in just a couple of weeks — and I’m so excited to get out there and connect with folks again!!
The heat the heat the heat!
