February's flurries were more than snowflakes for me and my tribe as members,
new and old, flew winter's weary coup and winged their way to poly paradise.
Three weeks felt like three months as our triad (Sasha, Shivaya and I) pulled
out all stops and plunged headlong into conscious (sometimes), intentional
(perhaps), intense (for sure), lively (oh yeah), community (common-unity, (I
We had four couples, a single man and a single woman, under our roof within a
three-week period. Then as if that mix wasn't interesting enough, we threw in
a couple dozen guests along the way. We only had three huge emotional blow-ups
(outside of the therapy, processing and constant communicating we normally do
anyway) and only one of the upsets was mine (thank God!). We lost one couple
in the macademia nut grove, but found them later, so that was ok. Another
couple got stuck in the mud with a car full of groceries. We were just about
to let them experience a "wild night in the Maui
jungle", but decided to rescue them before the ice cream melted (yum).
Two couples heading for divorce before they came here decided, after
processing with us and seeing how poly's process, to stay together. Who says
polyamory doesn't save marriages? One monogamous couple took the poly plunge
last day before they got on the plane. They ran off with one of our guest
couples. We didn't mind.
We had fun. We learned lots. I never laughed so hard, cried so deep, had so
little sleep. My head's still spinning. I'm excited. I'm exhausted yet at the
same time feel renewed. My eyes are open and have a greater apprecation for
every little thing in my life. I highly recommend it. I'd definitely be more
prepared next time before undertaking an experiment of this degree in my home
time, your place! Better yet, join us at one of our
conferences where I don't have to wash the sheets!
