Some one gets it and so sweetly

My mind is totally blown, my eyeballs are sweating and my heart is filled to bursting. I have just gotten lost in the most incredible movie. I would strongly encourage everyone who wants a deeper understanding to go on Netflix and watch "Boy meets Girl". Then let me know what you think.

A special warmth

Well, I am back in sunny Florida and the high temp was 80 degrees. Yesterday I was in San Francisco and the temp was low 50s. On the other hand I just had a glorious 6 days with my son, Sean and his mom, Toni. There was warmth. They love me. I'm not sure that I understand it all but they love me.
Toni got us tickets to "Chanticleer" www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohH62CSC574, which was magnificent and I even went to church with her on Christmas Eve to hear her in the choir.

Pingo et al

I've just found a delightful piece in the current BBC News Magazine on the work of a fellow who is collecting words that describe geographic phenomenon. The concept is wonderful and I think, important. The photos are lovely and the language enthralling. Have a look if you'd like. Words are so enchanting. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-27780066

My Heart and Hope are with those friends in the UK

Unless the stories that I have been seeing are untrue, I fear for all of my dear friends and beloved authors in the South and Western parts of the British Isles. The storm that I have been hearing about coming towards you from the North Atlantic is terrifying to me and I'm in Florida where we do hurricanes. Again, I pray that these stories are untrue. In any case I will be holding all of you in my heart.

Where did it go? Or was it me?

I do believe that sometime in the past 48 hours I encountered a piece as both story and blog, that seemed pretty heavy handedly proselytizing some religion. Of course, I noted that and just skipped it.
I thought today to look at it again in case I was being a bit too judgemental and it seems to be gone. Did I imagine it in the throes of BCTS withdrawls or what?

Reflecting in a Network

I sit, joyous, alone in my little cottage, in quietude and peace. It took 4 hrs before I could breath without pain from my back and that was OK. Artifacts if a life fully lived but no need for an organ recital. I feel so connected with you all; participate in your pain and joy and I do feel with you. I am supported by networks of trans friends/allies, another network of LGBT friends and allies and a very strong small network of families. Thank you all, you bring me peace and joy and I hope I reciprocate. You all truly have my love.

I am overjoyed! Yesterday I had a Cardiac PET Scan Stress Test and they just called me to tell me that my cardiac arteries both large and small are in great shape and if you knew my heart history for the past 15 yrs you would be amazed too. No results on Echo-cardiogram or Carotid Ultrasound till 11/5 but that is good news in and of itself. If there were bad things she would have me in sooner.

Wonder what is going on?

Usually, I actually am reasonably pleasant woman at peace with myself and life. Oh, I have my moments but they are few and far between. Today, every time I've encountered even mildly abusive stuff in my reading it has triggered my inner Mama Bear and trust me that is scary.
Something is going on but experience has taught me that attempting to "figure it out" is fruitless. Best I sit quietly with the feeling and allow it to become clear in its own time.

Does any one remember a multi-part story about a young transwoman w/Grand mother buying and building companies? I cant remember title or author but the companies were mostly paper and box making and she saved jobs. Not much I know but I want to reread it . Thanks, Joani
