why I never update  
...there are rallies, and meetings, and open mic events, and trans* folk in trouble.
then...
my boy plays music for me in the middle of the night, typically it's guitar, but tonight it's trumpet.
and, kinky butches and genderqueer femmes invite me to hang out with them in Vancouver and Seattle.
and, there are potlucks, speeches, media to disrupt and poilitcal debates to be had, olymipcs to protest/debate/destabilize.
and, incredible trans* and gender-variant communities to fight with and for to make the space we should have had a long-fucking-time-ago.

there are an ever mounting number of house tasks to deal with, be it painting, cleaning, learning how to drywall and plaster or the so called 'fireplace expedition' (whereby we must remove the one piece of drywall covering the furnace and behold the treasures inside, replace what we find with insulation and find a suitable way to cover it up again).

but, more important than any house task
...there are beautiful queers, trans* folks, genderqueers, fags, dykes, andro folks, pups, bears, elves, unicorns, kinky folks, ninjas, femmes, butches, chosen brothers/chosen family and simply fabulous folks who fill my life.

and, there are jobs to apply for, beurocracy to deal with, and bills to... avoid.
and, then there are things like... a funeral. on November 13th a beautiful, young, ally. avid knitter, photographer, scuba diver. well known for her love and for always being willing to listen or offer support.
Robyn. I love you.

in one week. one. for serious. shit.

November 20th is Trans Day of Remembrance. this year we remembered and celebrated the lives of over 120 trans* and gender-variant people, partners, allies and activists who were lost in the past year because of transphobic, queerphobic, sexist violence and discrimination.

I miss you too, friend!
I appreciate your food posts, maybe one day we'll be near enough to cook a meal together.

Send me your mailing address, if you'd like, and maybe we can keep in better touch in some way - I seem to be better at written letters in recent times.

Take care of you!
