About lyttlebyrd

I realized, some time ago, that I had things to say about my life. There has been some ups, and some downs, but it has been, for the most part, a fun and fascinating ride full of interesting folks.

About a year ago, I was introduced to someone as a “very important person in the poly community”. This surprised me. I’ve simply been here, living my life, with my yarn and my art and my garden and my loves, and I didn’t realize that what I was doing was all that groundbreaking.

But, here’s the thing, Mr Awesome and I have been living this life for a long time. And we are still going strong. We have fought illness and loss and depression and loss of our faith and we have come out strong. We have built an amazing community of friends, lovers, and chosen family, and made it our own. We’re raising awesome kids.

In short, we have had a shit-ton of experiences, and it was time for someone to sit down and write them out.

I realized that I had something important to say.

So here I am. I’m a stay-at-home mom raising kids and cats and sunflowers in the rural countryside not too far from Portland, Oregon. Although we are not out to the community in which we live, we are prominent members of the poly and kink communities in Portland, and it is my hope that my writings will normalize polyamory and start opening avenues of discussion about lives, loves, families, and everything in between.

My writing is deeply personal. I write about amazing people, all of whom have given their permission to appear here. I write about my own struggles with faith and depression. I write silly, and I write serious, sometimes at the same time. I write about love, which to me is the most important power in the ‘verse. I soapbox, I lecture, and if I educate or enlighten, then I am a happy person.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit with me. Please come back often. I’m finding I never run out of new things to say,
