A note of thanks

I just wanted to thank all of you again for subscribing, liking and donating. You are the reason this blog continues to exist.

It started out as more of an emotional outlet than anything else, but in recent years, it has become something different. It is now a repository of work that I hold dear – and it means everything that you guys are reading it. This new story in particular is close to my heart. I’m glad to feature it here, and glad to see that it has been shared and discussed on Twitter and elsewhere.

I’ve been busy with stuff and thangs (check out openDemocracy Russia to see a little bit of what I’m up to), but more posts here are hopefully forthcoming.

Thanks for sticking around ❤

marilyn kisses you

  1. Reblogged this on redsnest and commented:
    This post describes why people blog and why they need readers to keep going! Every human being needs to express emotions in their own ways.

  2. You are very welcome. I have learned a lot and am still learning from fellow bloggers like you. Please visit my blog sometime!

  3. I would be a bigger fan of this blog if Author wasn’t going around writing about fake sexual harassment stories on other sites and being an otherwise bitch.

    She lied about four Chechen men cornering her on the metro. Like a Muslim man would want to touch that. Maybe in her dreams.

    Get real, racist. Your likes aren’t helping.

  4. Keep up the good work. I really appreciate it.

    Two things:

    Using too many animated gifs can be distracting.

    There was this short story that you wrote that I loved. I think that I read it in 2014. I wrote to you that some of the guys who interacted with you in the story represented aspects of yourself. You wrote back that you hadn’t looked at it that way before and I thought you were amused.

    I haven’t been able to find that story on your blog recently. Maybe I’m just not looking hard enough. It would be a shame if the story is no longer online. It is great.

  5. I found the story! It is fantastic!


    I think that I may have missed a lot when I read it two years ago. It has so many levels.

    The bit about the Berkut guy seeing you at the sandwich shop, not seeming happy to see you and you thinking he might be embarrassed was fascinating. I’m trying to figure that out. It raises a lot of questions and it’s wonderful.
