A Day To Take A Blow

It's a rainy and cool day here in New York City. At least it's a chance to slow down. I have an active mid full of ideas, thoughts, and concerns. Last night I began writing a short story and have a play in mind.

I have been thinking about trans issues more since many of them are coming to the fore. Here in New York, the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) is an important issue for transgender people. There's so many issues out there so I have to funnel my focus on a few. I'm very happy that these things are even being discussed. Now to educate people about these subjects. 

I shared with a friend recently I'm busier now than when I was working and that I enjoy it. I'm doing the things that I love. Reflection is a good way to gauge where I am and where I need to go. Recharge the batteries and move ahead.

No Slowing Down

I thought the week after Holy Week would slow down but it hasn't. I don't mind, though. I have a couple of book fairs this weekend. The Anarchist Book Fair and the Rainbow Book Fair are annual events I attend every year. I always come away with a book. The latter book fair is LGBTQ related.

I'm enjoying the mild weather we've been having this week. I put away some of my winter clothing. I'll keep a few winter items out in the event another cold snap hits. I'm looking forward to being out more this summer.

Holy Week

Holy Week concluded with Easter Sunday services. It was a wonderful week. My wife and I acted in a drama on Maundy Thursday. Hadn't acted in anything since I don't know when. Good Friday service was done in the New Orleans Jazz Funeral style. It was lively and joyful. There were two services on Easter Sunday.

Holy Week reminds me of the sacrifices and changes that have occurred in my own life. There has been joy, struggle, fun, learning, and the conclusion that I'm on the right course.
