OK, so gender and it's resolution is really a major deal for most all of us, right? I get it, I remember the first terrifying steps, and the steps following, and the thought occurred just now that it's rather like a river flowing down to a delta, where it is reduced to hundreds of tiny streams, all converging on a bay or ocean.
"So what?", you may well ask. (Go ahead--it's OK...)
Well, I was just wondering what composes all those little streams that make up the greater person, that's all. The gender stuff--that's a given. But for me, there are lots of other facets of life: I am a published poet. I restore British motorcycles and ride--well, everywhere. I am into canning, and pickling many jars of goodies each Fall. I bake lots of bread, and am using a wood cook stove more and more and having a blast doing it. I love my son and granddaughters and cherish their visits, and I love my cat and dogs and mourn the passing of my husband of 13 years. I miss my parents and grandparents.
I like black and white films, long walks on the beach, dancing, and...oops. Wrong movie. Sorry.....
Ahem. Yes,. Back on topic----what OTHER aspects of our lives make us unique individuals? I studied karate for years and had a heart attack while scuba diving in a lake. Jumped out of an airplane in the days before tandem jumps, and at the tender age of 19, served a tour in Viet-Nam. It all speaks to the whole person, and that's what I'm looking for here.
So. What makes *you*----YOU?
(Can you tell the moon is full? Oh, yeah!)
