A kind word can bring joy
Cruel word can destroy
A tender can warm the heart
Bitter words can make the spirit tart

Words are like morning dew
It takes only two words to say ‘thank you’
Words that tear down
Causes one’s spirit to drown
In sorrow and defeat
Our words must be soft and discreet
Words can cause others to fall
If I don’t have a kind word to say
Better not say anything at all.

I'm feeling more comfortable where I am in my neighborhood. I really like it here and hope to stay a long time. There's is an LGBT community here in Washington Heights though not all that visible. They are here. There's a gay club across the street from a bookstore I frequent. In November I will be going to SAGE events in Harlem. Time for Gennee to make her presence. I found an affirming church nearby in which my spouse and I will be attending. Things are looking up for us.

Occupy Wall Street

I have been following the events at Occupy Wall Street. I hope to go down there real soon. There's many Occupations all over the world now. There's one up here in my neighborhood of Washington Heights. I will get some more information about the movement up here.

I can promise you that women working together - linked, informed and educated - can bring peace and prosperity to this forsaken planet.

My Spouse Tied Transgender Equality with Women's Struggless

Being able to share my life as a transgender person with my spouse is a joy. Last night I shared with her about how transgender people have been discriminated against throughout the ages. I sensed that she has a better understanding of what it is to be trans.

I'm very open with her about my feelings, concerns,and struggles. She tied women's struggles with the struggles of transgender people. We are both spiritual people and believe that everyone has the right to be who they are. While I do believe she has some concerns about the possiblility of me transitioning (I'm not), I assure her that I still want to be married to her. I'm sure she is concerned abou my safety.

Being open is something that I take to heart. I believe that by being open there maybe someone out in public who is struggling and desires to be authentic. Perhaps, someone may be encouraged by my example.

A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.
