Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! My heart goes out to you during these challenging times. I hope you are doing your best to keep safe. Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you are separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am truly so excited to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with Rachel Krantz, a journalist and author of the recently released OPEN: An Uncensored Memoir of Love, Liberation, and Non-Monogamy. Oh my goodness, what a fantastic, fun, and fascinating read this book is! Honestly, I am very impressed with this young author, and courageous human. We had a fascinating, lovely, and heartfelt conversation during this recent interview, and I am riveted by her wonderful writing style that has interesting footnotes sprinkled throughout. It was such a pleasure to get to meet her “in person” (over Zoom) and learn more about her, her story, and how she came to write this memoir. Rachel! You are truly a spectacular human being, and I am cheering you on every step of the way! Thank you for you contribution to our broader consensually non-monogamous community with this beautiful piece of work. Big Huge Congratulations to you! I wish you much success, and hope our paths cross in the future!
