The Bastards Won't Win! Risking it All to Stay Together

The Journey has Never Ended

By Elena

Meg’s and my journey to freedom, to life, to love never came to an end. For us, the journey itself has become our life: life, for us, is the journey. We live every day, we experience every day, and as long as we are free and together, life is worth living, and we are victorious!

Meg and I remain citizens of two different countries, Canada and Russia, as a result we have very limited safety, are not considered to be a family and are faced with separation. Regardless, we remain true to ourselves, we follow our own hearts, pursue our dreams, and we are free!

Every once in a while, when on land, we update this website with posts of our current adventures and struggle to remain free and together.

What's happening now:
OCEANIS - the latest chapter of CONVERGENCE is now live and kicking on It's a bummer to give away spoilers, but it's a bit of a riot when a couple of pie-eyed woman walk into a brokerage, looking to buy a yacht that can get them to the other side of the world. Now imagine this scene taking place in a devoutly Muslim country! Ahhh, good times, good times...
A PIECE OF CAKE -- chapter 24 of CONVERGENCE is now live and ready for your reading pleasure!
INTO THE ARABIAN NIGHT -- chapter 23 of CONVERGENCE is now live!
Elena has just written to the President Elect of Ukraine, after he declared an amnesty to Russians, offering them Ukrainian citizenship.
New CONVERGENCE chapter! "Flying the Coop" just posted. I hope you'll think it was worth the wait. It was a long (and emotional) slog across the Caribbean, and I wanted to make sure it was relatively polished before setting it free on the Net. It is weirdly astonishing, how similar our situation is now, to more than a decade ago when we ran for our lives and our love -- which is what CONVERGENCE is about. We're still running! We're still fighting for our love! And we're still together... So, we're still winning!
Got to Panama.
We are taking off for Panama.
Опубликована новая глава "Параллели" - часть 2, глава 3.
New chapter up on CONVERGENCE. Calling it, "Cut to the Chase" -- describes Elena @lenna taking the lead, and putting a scam artist to task in Odessa, Ukraine.


Another few steps in the crazy, year-long adventure, and run-for-our lives to stay together... and NOT dead.
This post should be read with a proper, English accent.

Make no mistake about it! Just because I am posting CONVERGENCE chapters, to beat the band. Infers, in no way whatsoever, that we are safe, on land, being proper and in our place.

No, no, no, and noooo! Our next breath could be seawater, our next heartbeat our last. This is life, this is adventure, this is love!
I've just posted a new chapter! 18: CHASING WILD GEESE on CONVERGENCE: Our True Story of Love, Survival and Finding Freedom

Read it here:
Dear CONVERGENCE subscribers!

The membership plugin has been overwhelmed and packed it in. I could rant about software, but I would prefer readers, ignited to take back their lives, and living their love (like we did, and are doing).


I would, however, still like to be paid for my work, and hosting costs. If you have subscribed, THANK YOU, your interest means everything to us, but some coin is also very much appreciated. If you haven't, and would like to pay for this work, the PayPal link is still provided.
CONVERGENCE. chapter 17 -- Hitting the Open Road, is now live and on-site
"Parallel" is my second book that tells the story of Meg's and my struggle for our love and our life. Chapter 8 has been translated from Russian into English, read it here
CONVERGENCE readers! Chapter 16 "Getting the Hell Out Of Dodge" -- photos and captions, are now available on [link src="

Why"]? You may ask, after such an egregious delay, full-color, suitable for framing, awe-inspiring photographs and captions should appear on the CONVERGENCE site. It's because I managed to resurrect my computer. Million-to-one shot, let me tell you, but using scraps and pieces of computers past, and the mangled remains of this one, I have created a reanimated zombie-top computer.

Apart from getting really, really hot and smelling a bit like brimstone, my Franken-computer goes really well with this steam punk style I'm kinda into.
There is a highly technical, meteorological term for the type of weather we are experiencing: it sucks! Actually, it's so sucky, it defies human comprehension.

In layman's terms: we are stuck in a perpetual gale. The wind never let's up. And it's not a gentle, merciful breeze that keeps the bugs down. Nooooo, it's a howling, rip-roaring, gusty blast that pulls the snot right from your nose and plasters it in your hair. The only sailing one does now, is unintentional when the anchor rips out, or the windlass clutch slips at three in the freaking morning.

It's too windy to launch the dingy. Swimming's suicide in this chop. So, we are stuck on board. Hoping we don't starve to death, or die of boredom, before the wind lets up.

We're anchored in a big bay; dozens of boats are hiding from the blast in it. We are probably the biggest (deepest), thus, we keep to deeper water, further from shore. Mercifully, all the "cruisers" are clotted together, close in to a trash-heap of a settlement, and safely (and comfortably) far away from us, exercising their insurance policies (if they have any), dragging into each other, no doubt.

Got some pretty big news coming up... soon! Will get it up on the blog ASAP.

No idea when, where, or if, we can come in from the sea -- we're working on that. Believe me, we are working on that all the time. Keeping spirits up, living every day as fully as we can, making every heartbeat count, and having one heck of a great adventure along the way.

NASA should hire us as consultants for deep-space missions.

That's the news, for now. I need another half-liter of coffee!

Meg, out
CONVERGENCE readers! I've been getting material posted with an 8" android tablet. Let's just say, it's a bit like sweeping out a barn with a toothbrush! Rewrites of chapters 14 & 15 are posted along with photos and captions for chapter 15.
We're winding our way back to the seriously-off-the-beaten-path Bahamas: the extreme southeast islands and cays; the desolate, raw edge of this sunken archipelago; places with no signs of tourist infestation. We'll try to find fuel and groceries in the eczema cays, on our way back to the Bahamas that counts! Then we'll be on our way back to Turks and Caicos for an expletive filled meeting or two (and to buy me another computer!) and then, who knows? This is adventure, liberation and how life should be! Not a heartbeat wasted.
This is our new micro-blog, live updates, news & announcements, and general impressions feed.

Twitter (and social media) wasn't the right tool for the job: communication and interface.

To get in touch, our email address is: it's also printed on the page footers.

We hope you like our new keeping-it-simple approach. Don't be shy, let us know.
