I’m Back!

I have been away for too long! Sorry, it has been a hectic year. How is 2011 treating you?

I am still in the midst of rubble! No, there’s been no tragedy that’s struck here other than one of my own making! You see Rosemary and I have decided to sell our house in Colorado and move back to Maryland. This is a long and winding story and I’ll spare you the details. Here’s the high view:

We moved to Colorado in early 2000 just a couple of weeks after Rosemary’s Mom, Gloria, made her transition. We moved more stuff than we wanted to, but since it was a corporate move and we were in the midst of grief, the packers and movers packed everything in our Maryland house, yes, even some trash! In 2003 my company wanted me back in Maryland; rather than move again we went the short-term rental route keeping the house in Colorado. Four “short-term” places and five years later I retired and we moved back to our house in Colorado. Basically we then had two house-holds worth of stuff in this one house.

Well, I’m now going through all that stuff and purging. It’s a task and a half! Boxes of keep-stuff are in the basement and garage. Boxes of give-stuff are in the entry-way to be picked up soon. And I have many more boxes to fill! So, I’m living among the rubble of sorting, purging, packing, pitching as I go room-to-room preparing the house for sale. And this is my shallow excuse for my absence from this blog!

But I have not been idle in other ways aside from the move. In fact a friend of mine, Glenn M. Smith and I are joining forces to start a movement.  And you can read about this movement, still in the “crawling phase” at:


And I’m going to repost an article I wrote for that site here; please read the next post.

Glenn’s and my new site is a social site meant to gain membership and discussion on any range of topics men may be interested in pursuing. Please visit and join our movement!

Meanwhile I plan to keep “Men and the Goddess” alive and begin feeding it again. I’ll keep you “posted” on that!

      Hi Joseph! Thanks for staying in touch. And I have been following your progress on “The Masculine Conspiracy” – have it stashed away for my reading pleasure. I’ll comment as I can but as you can see from my post today I’ve been a bit otherwise occupied!

      It’s good to be “home”!
