As always, comments are welcome!

This Valentine's Day post in my new blog took me all day to do. Seriously. It would be lovely if someone would go look at it. And maybe let me know that they'd seen it. It's got a link to a new resource page I made:
My handy-dandy gender-neutral, relationship-style-neutral Love Languages quiz.

Still plugging away at learning the software. BTW, changing the background (to put a white box over the chart graphic, to make the text area easier to read) doesn't require learning the Wordpress software--it requires learning the DREAMHOST software. I haven't even seriously begun to work at that.

Hey polyfolk (especially those in and around Seattle)!

I'm really excited about this weekend's Poly Living hotel conference in Seattle, where I'll be presenting with my long-term LDR partner Gary on Long Distance relationships (a description of that workshop, called "Wandering Hearts," along with all the other great workshops, can be found here). It's going to be great fun, with a Keynote by Dossie Easton (co-author, Ethical Slut); a special appearance by Christoper Ryan (co-author, Sex at Dawn), and a great concert by the Bone Poets Orchestra (formerly Gaia Consort). Options for attending part or all of the conference, and discounts for worktrade, poly families (3 or more registering together), and more, make the conference more affordable for those of limited means. I hope to see some of you there for part, if not all of this great conference!

I'm also (separate from the conference) presenting at the Sharma Center on Tuesday 10/26, on the topic of "Creating Empowering Relationship Agreements." Doors open at 6:00, folks need to be in by 6:45 (to avoid disturbing the downstairs event), and the workshop will run from 7 to 9pm. No pre-reg required, but the space is small and could sell out, so call if you're sure you want to be there! $15 for Sharma Center members and registrants of Poly Living; $20 for others.

PS: Reasonably decent press coverage of a workshop I presented last week in Santa Cruz. Yay for positive poly press!

Robyn Trask of Loving More says that there are a few more spots left for the East Coast Retreat at Easton Mountain (outside of Albany NY). There may also be discounts and/or worktrade, so if you've been wishing you could go, you should contact her ASAP! Basic info can be found in this (slightly dated) newsletter. I might suggest calling rather than e-mailing, since Robyn is already on the road: 970-MOR-LOVE.

2) Poly Pool Party at our place THIS Saturday May 8th from 7pm to 12 midnight (setup and "Family Friendly time" begin at 4pm)! (donation requested to cover heating costs, but No One Turned Away For Lack Of Funds)

After a successful workshop in December on basic Poly skills, I'll be returning to Pure Pleasure in Santa Cruz later this month to present another workshop in tandem with Akien. On Feb. 25th (a Thursday) we'll present "Riding the Green Wave: Moving Through Jealousy," a workshop on several tools for dealing with jealousy (especially in polyamorous relationships). These skills are, of course, not LIMITED to use in poly relationships, but that's our context. Description and registration information is included below. We'd love to see some of you there!

Best wishes,

Dawn (& Akien)

PS: Feel free to forward to any of your Santa Cruz and other local friends!
