We may do our best to determine who we are, our gender, but at the end of the day, it’s society that truly determines it for us. We’re always told to be ourselves, to not give a damn what other people think, it’s not always that easy unfortunately. You see yourself through the mirrors of […]

Not really a followup to the last post entitled “Strength”, but that’s what this is all about ——————————————————————————————————– Mara says that I’m the strongest person she knows, and that is a big part of her love for me I don’t often feel that I’m very strong, I’m me not because I feel strong, but because […]

Mirrors….. passing….. thoughts

17th July 2014 | 0 Comments

I glance at myself in a mirror, I still see a shadow on my face where the beard used to be. I approach the mirror, put my face a few inches away from it, puff out my lip. I hunt for the dark hairs, the survivors, the stragglers…. they’re nowhere to be seen. I pull […]

Something I’ve noticed these past few weeks, my memories of him are fading no…. not of my ex boyfriend, that’s not the “him” that I’m referring to… although those memories are a lot less pervasive these days. He goes through my head at least once a day, probably more, but the thoughts don’t carry the […]

I walk into the room as she does. We sit across from each other. – so, what’s up?. Been a little silent lately? She fingers the pendant hanging at the end of the cheap gold chain. A wooden teardrop. She loves that thing – life’s slowed down. I dunno…… the cold is setting in ya […]

I touched upon this in a tangential way on my last post, but another thing that has been on my mind a lot, and also made an impact on my time at this (and the first) festival. being visibly trans especially when you’re camping in the woods and don’t really get to look your best… […]
