At the conference today, I attended a workshop where the facilitator asked us why we write. I thought about it for a while. I write because I wasn’t to keep teaching and writing is my, well, classroom. I want to teach about a variety of issues and I enjoy researching information before I put pen to paper, or, rather, fingers to keyboard. I want to share, to make information available, and to encourage and help others to write their stories.
I visited Jude and his moms after the conference. He’s such a precious 4 year old little guy and I love him deeply.
I’ve decided against buying the boat. Living aboard again is more a pipe dream than reality. Been there, done that. While I could afford the boat, the upkeep would simply be that old saying: A boat is a hole in the water into which one pours money. I don’t need something to complicate my life during this extremely busy year with the film and a great deal of travel.
I’m finally in my own bed tonight. I’m grateful….
My Meditation (from Women’s Spirit): If I get angry today I will look for the reason within myself. I can’t change others, but I can change myself.
Today in LGBT history: 1626 – Pope Urban the Eighth gave Catalina Erauso the right to wear male clothing.; 2009 – The US government apologized to Frank Kameny for firing him in 1957
It’s good to be 67!
