|My First Post - July 16, 2015|
I hope you have enjoyed some of my views, trips, outings, fashion layouts, and shopping experiences. Most important, I hope these have inspired your escape. Escaping my fears was something I put off too long. If in any small way, I have encourage you to get out and live your life on your terms, keeping this blog going has been worth it.
Being a transgender person has been an integral part of my life. Not at all my whole life, however always there. Maybe being an artist, cabinet maker, writer, or traveler are things you have always wanted to do. Why not do it. Why not be it. Escape, what is holding you back. Grant yourself permission.
It is a crazy thing to start a blog and even crazier to keep it going long enough to celebrate a 2-year milestone of daily post. The truth is, I am proud of my little corner of the web and I am more than a little grateful to all of you. The fact that you drop by on occasion and leave your thoughts means more to me than I can ever say.
I want those that know me and are my friends to have an awareness that they now are acquainted with a transgender person. The very same person they always knew. Being transgender was never a choice and it is not a lifestyle.
It is easy to rationalize, even be justifiably noble in hating a concept. However conscious effort is required to be prejudice against someone for being who they are. Prejudice can be overcome by direct contact. By being out and forward I have used this blog to inform and at the same time hopefully presented a positive image and message.
I especially want to thank those that have contributed experiences and stories to my "Friend's Friday" post. These are some of my most read post. Please submit more, and if you have not submitted yet, please tells us about your ESCAPES.
I especially want to thank you for tolerating my dyslexia enhanced writing. A lot of concentration is required and at times I do embarrass myself; I apologize. I never knew I could write; actually, still not 100% sure.
When I started this blog, I wanted to record bits and pieces of my transgender life; Learning to be myself and now the best part, living my life. Being transgender is a gift.
Along with my own writing, I have tried to present current article you may not have seen. Many of these are relevant to the transgender experience and future. Maybe some have caused you to consider where you are in the transgender spectrum or caused you to become active in our community; or just a fleeting fantasy. Whatever, We all must choose our respective place and not dwell in the land of denial. Live your life.
As of today there have been 728 post and as long as I still have something to say, I will commit to 1000 post. After that, I will evaluate continuing.
