When one hears the term “reproduction expediting”, one can be forgiven for thinking that it could possibly be less than flattering. However, one couldn’t be more wrong. That is, when it involves the relational dynamics of the older woman and younger man. You see, the term “reproduction expediting” is scientific proof, according to Psychology Today, […]

They say you never forget how to ride a bike…    Mind you I was a late developer on that score; I’m ashamed to say it took me a few formative years longer than I bet it did most of you to kick the stabilizer habit. Still, once I found the guts to finally risk a […]

Mary Stanley
I met Mary Stanley, who is a best selling Irish author on a radio show, and wanted to interview her as I love her story and the way she tells it – when you read it, imagine her mellifluous Irish accent. JM, TBW founder MS: I was married for 25 years, actually together with my […]

And look what went on to happen next; the quest for a third way, a Hamletesque guilt trip over shags I should or should not […]

Man at the beach
Tragic, but it happens. Sometimes we go without. For a few months in my case. I suppose there are various reasons why this awful state of being can come to pass – being a lighthouse keeper, being forced into a convent (although I’m sure those nuns sometimes… sorry, I mustn’t lose my train of thought…), […]

Its been a pretty busy few months since my father passed away.  And to be honest, since I put The Man out of my life, I thought it was time to take a step back, not date anyone, age appropriate or otherwise for a while. You know, just enjoy being with the children, having a […]
