Conspiracy of Love

So, not much has been happening lately.

That's the last lie I'll tell today. LOL.

There has so much, I barely know where to begin. So much that getting my ears pierced on Friday ranks no higher than third on the list of things that have happened in the past 10 days or so since I posted last. Let me just hit the highlights in the order they happened and see how long-winded I am.

Panic!

Image from verywellmind.com
I had a panic attack today. That is unfortunately something I believe many who read this will be familiar with. Right now, I think I just entered the post-attack phase that is Shame. I feel ashamed. I am not yet strong enough to just move past something like that without having those feelings afterward. Not yet.

My Time


I lifted this image from a friend who posted it on Facebook. Obviously, a pic previously pilfered has now been re-pilfered. Anyway, I don't want to sound cocky, but this really resonates with me, especially this past week. I am uplifted; I am buoyant. You never know...my better boat just might float.

(Feel free to re-re-pilfer...I have a feeling it's also YOUR time.)

P.S. - If you have a hard time reading the image, trying clicking/tapping to make it bigger. If this still doesn't work, let me know I have sprung a leak.

D.B. Cooper Was Trans!

Well, probably not. When I heard that a trans person was once mentioned as a potential suspect in the most famous skyjacking case in history, my ears definitely perked up. And this title for a blog jumped into my brain and rattled around for several days before landing here today. I hope my shameless attempt at attention with such a salacious title worked. That would be fun. Let me know if you read this and that's how I hooked you.

The Sickness of My Disguise

"God made me a woman. The doctors are curing me of the sickness of my disguise, to correct a mistake in nature."

I am likely paraphrasing ever so slightly, but that quote was uttered by a trans woman named Lili Elbe, a long time ago. I find interesting her use of the word disguise, and it's really intriguing how the meaning of the word changed for her over time. The above are the words of Lili further into her transition, whereas she wrote in her journal of her first act of dressing as a woman, "I cannot deny, strange as it may sound, that I enjoyed myself in this disguise. I liked the feel of soft women’s clothing… I felt very much at home in them from the first moment.”
