I am not sure where I belong.

Being out if town for a few days allowed me to have some carol time as well as get a pedicure and nails done and do some shopping. It was wonderful. My plans were to make it over to Amanda's for a makeover but our schedules did not match so it allowed me some extra time to think. That is when I concluded that I don't know where I belong. My family commitments do not allow me much time for carol, my wife would not be accepting, I can't even think of talking to her about it as I could not stand… Read More

forging ahead

This trans had made great strides personally on named secretary of Missouri congressional District for trans at that position, secondly I am a little nervous.  I was invited several months ago to join the parish women council.  I am worried entering a cis-gender activity but apprehensive. These little strides I made for the past three years in this community is building. Forge ahead

Preparing to embark on a new chapter in life

A lot has happened in my life over the last 6 months, and I'm doing a lot of soul searching, and I'm seriously considering the option that I want to start a new chapter in my life.

I have no ties to the area I am living in now, so once I save up some finances in a couple months (I had to use some of those resources for an unplanned crisis), I could pack up and go in a heartbeat.  I'm thinking a few months out, so I'm not making any hasty decisions like I have in the past, but I'm…

Patriot Day. A day we will never forget. A day seen around the world. It changed the world powers, it brought them closer together. 

It humbled America, it brought us to our knees. It angered us with tears, fear, and sorrow. The world watched in total disbelief as the towers fell. The world fell silent. 

It opened the eyes to all the world leaders, if this could happen to America, it could happen to us.

I would like to think that all those that lost their lives that day…

Vacation.

HI ladies, my wife and I are planning a Vacation and were not quite sure wear it would be safe to travel. We've done Las Vegas and loved it, I would go again but any Ideas would help on some were different to try.

We have been thinking about a cruise but I'm not sure if it's safe getting off the boat at some of the ports .

I pass well enough, but my voice gives me away sometimes, I’m working with a voice pathologist but I don't know how long that's going to take.

SCC

Had a great time at the SCC. Really enjoyed the Pink Essence Party. I haven't logged on for a while. Partially because my work schedule has been so hectic, but also because i was "outed" to the wrong people, and had to go into solitude for a while. GLAD to be back. I will try to blog and stay in touch more often. I need this.

How stupid of me

I work in an environment full of students from all forms of life styles and up bringing's. 

We are trained in safety and blood born pathogens. We are always in some form of contact, door handles mainly. Checking the rooms, counting the students, Assuring accountability, and safety. 

Patrolling the center, checking buildings and government vehicles, more door knobs. But I'm safe, I wear the latex gloves, and my partner does also.

One night we were talking about the spread…

Fantasy - Or - Reality / Rules of Engagement

When I first started dressing up - it was mainly a matter of personal gratification & fantasy /

Conformity & expectations kept me in check, till the age of 30 - The fulfilment I got from dressing up as Shirley was more powerful than being hooked on heroin ! /

Although I never got into that dark side of life (thank God) - I was truly obsessed and in love with "Shirley" - To the point I never developed the skills to share intimacy with any human being..... / Some folks might… Read More

To be us

The feeling of being lost. The feeling of not belonging. We spin around, not knowing where we will end up.

Our worst enemy is not "them", it is our own selves. When we are gender-ed challenged, facing the confusion of who we are, we tend to crawl into ourselves. We face, who am I? Who will win, me or her? 

Some just get going, some struggle, some just end it. 

The mind, it is our most powerful influence, don't let it hold you hostage,

When you look in the mirror,…

Fussing all morning

I've picked out my dresses for my fast and furious visit to Atlanta this Friday-Sunday. I'll be driving, relaxed in a nice summer dress, the three hour drive will hopefully be boring, nothing to slow me down or divert me.

I've picked out three other dresses, and shoes. I'm ready, well almost....MY HAIR!!!. I've been fussing all morning with my hair. I've got long grey stringy witchy-poo hair. What to do with it? The girls will be watching me pull up to the hotel...I've got to look my…

(((( Great )))) to be back - Hiya from Shirley

To all the folks who might have known me from the past - just a warm hug together with a warm smile / To all the new folks I who don't know me - I also offer a warm huggie !

Regardless of how we might label ourselves - we are all just human beings who share all the similar desires as anyone else - we all want affection in our life and seek out common ground and interests with others / I have lived full time as a non-op…

Giving myself the gift of time

Almost like a proclamation Im giving myself a year to prepare for the 2015 SCC. Ive been a member of PE for about 6-months now, its been a great experience to browse the pictures, read the blogs, chat on occasion and even debate opinions, thank you all for allowing me the discourse. 

I live in the metropolitan Atlanta area and had set as a goal to attend 2014 SCC. The pressure I felt was overwhelming and at times discouraging to me. Im not far enough along in my transition to…

I blew it

When I followed my heart and started to change and sought out love. I took care of my mom she called me her daughter. Now she is gone. A dominant man took her place and I thought that my life was to assume a new and wonderful role in Oregon. But her house is not going to get me any surgeries that matter. Dream hope was shattered. I have no passion for anything now my broken crippled body wants to go home. I did my job on this earth by giving all that I had to her becaused I loved her. Yes I…

I didn't like it at first

It came. I finally have one, the guitar I've always dreamed of owning. I strapped it on...I'm a rock star now.

Hmmm, my hand don't slide up and down the neck, seems to grab, the strings are heavy, hard to bend. The tone, gosh it doesn't sound like Jimmy Page. What a let down, the Gibson Les Paul Studio Pro...darn.

I feel let down. I want to send it back, grab my Telecaster, but I polish the neck. Still it wants to fight me. 

The tone, still I can't get what I'm after,…

My first complete girls-holidays ...

As promised in my last news I try to write a little bit about my first complete "girls-holiday-week" with my best friend Lena we had in the bavarian mountains and I just can say it was so fantastic as I was myself in public there 24h a day and every day! It was such a new cute feeling of being free and myself for others as a woman!

We had hoped for some sunny days, but apart from one warm and sunny day we just had rainy, windy and cold days instead - but no reason to hide then in our…

Life goes on... happily..

Hi Everyone.!!!!

As I often do - I will list a few things that come to mind as I want to stay connected to you all.. I will just let my fingers do the talking .. and see where it leads.

First.. Im good! We recently moved to our dream home.. a small cottage/house on one of the finger lakes in NY. Its so wonderful. It has all the space we really need and is very cozy. The kitchen is a nice size and we switched the livingroom/dining area around giving us a larger place for meals…

Free Falling

Life, to be a boy that just can't get the boy thing right. To turn into a man, still not getting this man thing going. Wondering, what is wrong with me? 

Running from myself...then I came out. I was tired, confused, not knowing where I was headed. The only thing I knew was work. After work I just didn't want to go home. I loved my family, but I was just a mess with these feelings that kept growing stronger. I thought I out ran them, I thought they would go away and I would finally…

SCC Tips

First of all, I had to cancel this year, wish I could attend. I've been 4 times so far, it is always a blast.

Checking in, the first time I went I went in male mode, changed in my room, and left male mode. The second time I went I went as me, in a dress, checked in with no problems, but left in male mode. The next 2 times I went as me and left as me, (evolution) No problems.

The hotel shuttles....use them! They are free and the drivers will cater to you, I used them for…
