Hello, to the internet people who happen to find this site!

I’m Heather Gentry. Used to be Evergreene. It’s a digital pleasure.

This is an unused blog that has some good posts on it (or at least some that keep getting hits), so in the interest of being green even on the internet, I thought I’d recycle it. So here’s what I’m thinking:

**I’ll keep up the old posts because  they still deserve the love.

**I’ll supplement posts with general information about polyamory and anything else I’m interested in.

**Since my real name is associated with this site, I’ll also put some information about me as well.

If you have any comments or suggestions, you are welcome to comment or click the contact page for other options.

Peace out!

I breathed a gigantic sigh of relief today. Thank God Barack Obama was re-elected.

I think it proves what we’re always taught: that love trumps hate. I will sleep easier knowing my president has my back and doesn’t hate me for things that I can’t change.

The fact that Obama was re-elected shows a shift in my generation and in the American population. I’m not the only one to notice either. It’s exciting.

We still have lots to do, but we’re on track.

With Election Day coming up Tuesday, I’ve been looking up candidates that will show up on my ballot. I found a very helpful website that tells you what will be on your ballot down to the local stuff, and so I’ve been researching.

My county’s U.S. Representative is up for re-election. His name is Tom Graves. He’s a Republican.

His website discusses a 5 Way Conservative Test that presumably Graves uses to determine which bills he approves. One of the five ways reads:

Does the proposal increase personal freedoms? Does it impede on the freedoms of others? Does it limit others personal rights or property rights? Does it interfere with justice? Does it allow individuals to decide how to make personal choices for themselves and their lives without harming others? Does government coerce their choices with this bill?

This sounds wonderful. Perfect. I could not have said it better myself.

But Graves is a Republican, and because of that, I know that he applies those questions differently than I do. Read the rest of this entry »

I have a one-hour commute to work, and I like to listen to music. I get tired of the radio because with the DJs, commercials, and silly games, there’s not much music involved, so I like to make CDs. Because of my alternative lifestyle, mainstream music often doesn’t fit my world very well. Most music is heterosexual and monogamous, and I get tired of listening to the same ideas over and over, so I’ve made me an alternative CD that encompasses bisexual songs, BDSM songs, and polyamory songs as well songs about being different or songs about being yourself.

I’m getting married on Thursday. 🙂 10-11-12. Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve stayed out of the Chick-fil-A ordeal for weeks. It happened in a difficult time, not long after my family found out about my differences, so I definitely had other things on my mind. But I have been watching and reading. Read the rest of this entry »

So I was reading articles on Huffington Post. I read a lot of articles and blogs. Usually it’s no big thing, besides just making me think. But this time, I’m reading along calmly, and BAM! I’m QUOTED.

Whoa. Read the rest of this entry »

While I have several logic-centered reasons for being polyamorous, I think the most convincing are the ones rooted in emotion and spirit. These are the ones that would be hardest for me to discount because they are what I feel deep inside myself. These are the ones that made me Google “permanent multi-person relationship” while holding my breath hoping for some answers. These are the ones that hold the most true in my heart.

Because polyamory is as diverse as the people who practice it, my reasons for being poly are personal to me. There are other people who agree with some aspects, I’m sure, and some people who could add other reasons. I’m going to break them up into two parts. These are what I think are the more logic-centered reasons. Read the rest of this entry »

I have a sound system in my car. It’s nothing special: a 12-inch Sony Xplode with a 400 Watt amp. Just a subwoofer, no after market tweeters or door speakers. It was cheap, something we bought from a friend. Read the rest of this entry »
