Searching For Balance

I love dialogue.  Not the dialogue you find in a movie or a book, but true life, in-person dialogue.  Especially with someone who is willing to speak their mind, even if their opinions might be considered to be offensive.  Recently I had some great conversations with a good friend, someone who just found out that I am transgender about a year ago.  Yeah, that is what happens with trans people; We are who we are, and generally we have known who we are for a long time, yet we still feel that we cannot share who we are even with our best friends. read more

This is an outfit that I wore the other day when my wife and I went to get our nails done.  I’m kind of picky about what I’m going to wear when I go to have my nails done.  First off, my pants obviously need to be hiked up for the pedicure.  Being as my thighs are pretty normal, and are larger than my calves, pulling up my pants is often pretty difficult.  Thus I often think, I should wear a skirt, but then I have to deal with having my crotch pointed directly at whoever is doing my nails, um NO!  I have unfortunately been the recipient of many a story about transgender humans who come in for their nails and at the same time want to give a “free peep show” to the nail tech. read more

This was a funny evening outfit for me.  We had a really full weekend with all sorts of things to get done, but I wanted to go out to dinner.  I spent the morning working furiously on all of my various jobs around the house and decided to get ready around two in the afternoon.  While getting ready I asked Jules, my wife, what she was thinking about wearing.  She surprisingly said she was thinking of wearing a dress, and asked me what I was wearing.  This is the funny part, normally it is me in a dress and Jules in jeans, but this time I told Jules that I wanted to wear jeans.  As it turned out she was only thinking of wearing a dress because she assumed I wanted to, and thus we both happily wore jeans.  I know, thrilling story huh? read more
