Midsummer Day's Resonance

I finished reading through something I found one sleep ago. The ending was a bit weird... Like a test question without an answer. It's nice, though. I'm glad to have read it. When idly tapping around on google after finishing it with things left on my mind, I found the blog I just linked, and eventually found my way to http://altogether.insani.org/2008/0.html, reviewed here. just reading the al|together logs was fun on its own, and I eventually downloaded each. I plan to take time for them in the next week, but I already suspect they're worth looking into.

(I'm aware I don't have readers to inspire interest in.)

Eating a grapefruit

...is sort of like domesticating a tiger. Even if you try to be kind and preserve its character, some of the majesty of nature's beauty is lost in the transition.

"Walking the Line: My Family"

A good friend of mine wrote something cutting to the heart of a modern issue, and invited me to share it, which I'm all for!

Walking the Line: "It Gets Better": "My friend BreiAnne shared this video with me this morning. I don't generally approve of the things Obama does, but this really renewed m..."

Walking the Line: My Family: "My last post was about stopping hatred. I don't enjoy hearing about all the CHILDREN in this country committing suicide because they felt li..."

Also, re: Plants Vs Zombies

It seems that it wasn't unlocked free with my computer, but instead was a limited number of full version activations. I only learned this after expending them. At least I got that damn record player.

My friend is in Japan

I have his in-progress photo album.

Instead of wasting time talking, I will hastily post it post-haste.

I've been playing Plants Vs Zombies for much of the past two days. S-stupid Zen Garden, it's not like I want to play music for you or anything, so don't think I do!

And, more significantly, the day before that, I got an amazing haircut while on the way to the doctor's for a rechecking. I feel great about it. Then my doctor was very glad I was feeling great, which made me feel even better! People happy you're happy makes you happy, clearly. Then I went to see my sister and grandmother for dinner, during which I heard a very sad story (the harassed gay musician who lost it and jumped off a bridge. While waiting in the hospital on the way back home, I saw it reported on the television, followed by a report of a wide flooding along the east coast. I still could smile and chat with the lady that took my blood (and was told that if fifty people a day were more like me about it her job would be a lot easier--my arm vein's really visible and I don't have trouble with needles!). That was my Friday, and I enjoyed it.

Weekend could have done with less zombies though.
Sincerely, Plants.

"Wait... I really did leave, right?"


This is my friend's new wallpaper on his iPhone. He left Pennsylvania on the 2nd.

He's ostentably in New Mexico. I don't believe him, I asked him where all the sand was. He said he expected more sand too. Instead, he's out there with this:

One more step. Keep moving forward, America.

Waahoooo! Just from some of the words in here, like "Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown refused to defend Proposition 8, prodding the sponsors of the initiative to hire a legal team experienced in U.S. Supreme Court litigation," and "The federal challenge was filed on behalf of a gay couple in Southern California and a lesbian couple in Berkeley. They are being represented by former Solicitor General Ted Olson, a conservative, and noted litigator David Boies, who squared off against Olson in Bush vs. Gore," seriously make me light up with hope. This isn't a struggled-out single victory. This is the pressing of a momentum that's going to roll right up to capitol hill.

A federal judge in San Francisco decided today that gays and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, striking down Proposition 8 , the voter approved ballot measure that banned same-sex unions.

My [today] is getting better. I've got high hopes for [tomorrow].

In other, less political news, my friend impressed some members just got invited, admission-free, to an intellectual summit in California. She lives in northern Europe. She can't go. It's a bittersweet experience.

Thirteen Pieces

Preface note: 'the girl' and 'she/her' are two separate entities, and each is always referred to by the same pronoun.

She called out, just once, for the girl to send her back home, th-this was a one-way journey, and she was still unsure, hesitant, but the girl insisted, and she was slowly, slowly, preservingly split down the middle, and separated from her other half. She whispered a goodbye to her other self, even though she knew they'd be together again soon, but, both of them would be changed forever, right? She suspected what sort of future there would be, but had only heard of it, from here and there.

The girl returned, and softly, but firmly embraced her...Was this what it's come to? A long, thin tool was set against her sensitive skin, it was cool but she was even chillier, as the nature of her home had been, too. She wanted to return, but...there was no sense in waiting forever, this was something new to her. She solidified her composure even as it pressed in sharply--! This, this definitely wasn't all there was to this, right?! It left her and shifted, pierced into her one more time, and then two more times, and there was a whisper that she only needed to go through this once, but f-four more times after that! And... there were even more but she, numbing and dizzy and with no choice but to trust the girl, couldn't count anymore by the time she realized that it had stopped. Shocked and nervous, she shivered and waited for more.

She gazed up at the girl, apprehensive anxious, and curious. The girl gazed back down, smiled, and swept the tool through the air again. She flinched, alert and leery--anyone would be scared! But the girl set it gently down on one of the walls in her heart...an intimate place...and held it there for a moment before slowly sliding it up and down that barrier, feeling for a weaker spot in it, then finding one near her center and pushing out, down, then sideways and across, and down again, until she was divided from herself even while she was whole... It was completely different from before, and she didn't even notice the girl gently working on the other side of that wall. W-wait! No, she'll fall apart if you do that! The girl set the tool down and let go of her, then made a vow, that she'd be exceptionally gentle in contrast to the rough severs that others of her siblings have probably gone through. She didn't like the thought of it, but there was some relief there too.

The girl returned to the fine motions of the blade's rounded tip, leaving her surely as intact as she could be through it all. She began quivering in anticipation, and she became more and more wet, shivering as her heart was lain bare, pulled apart at every once-smooth seam in her body by the time the knife was put down, with light sound that didn't matter to either of them. The girl cradled her and swept her away, her surfaces flushed and features unsteady. The girl rested in a seat and plunged a spoon deep into her body, squelching in her wetness and lifting out part of her heart, her mind, her body, the sensation was hard to bear! It was nearly too much, but she could only roil in the feeling silently, as her body made all the noise to be heard. One piece, no, two parts, no! Three bites, four more, and she lost herself in the ecstasy. All she could even recognize as herself was the last piece left as she was lifted from her casing and engulfed, inside and one with the girl, no longer individual but part of something so much more complete. She surrendered to the pleasure with all the other parts of her, united in mind and form, once again.

The last bite was the sweetest.

LGBTQQIA! (Not a typo)

First, please take a look here.

Not done? Take your time (this is a blog, there's no rush), read it again if you wish.

Okay, now that that's done, dear reader! I'd like you to spark a convo, within the week, with at least one person (you're free to talk to as many as you like at maximum, of course) about one or more of these identity/sexual identity-based topics. Please report back with what you've heard no matter what the results are or when you read this post, I'm going to do it too!
Then, in the following week, try to bring up the subject with someone else of the same general demographic and someone of a very different one (a different generation, or walk of life, or inside/outside your family, or identifying/not- among the list's, for example). Were there big differences?

What are your own thoughts on the list, if you don't mind sharing them? Is there something missing? I may as well--rather, I intend to at some point--but it's 7 AM and I really need to go to sleep, I'd like a lot more focus first.

Please try it and please comment! Even a small discussion would be nice.

'Getting it'

At 5 AM, I was very tired, but couldn't quite go to sleep. I ended up chatting, and at some point, returning to a beloved site I recently re-found. At 6:11 AM, I was handed inspiration.

[06:10] http://karenrayne.com/2010/05/10/what-does-prevention-mean/ so awesome.
[06:11] <&Atma> i've been poking around her site since you shared it the other day
[06:11] <&Atma> she gets it
[06:12] [Endurance] she really does
[06:13] [Endurance] well put
[06:13] <&Atma> that's all there is to it really
[06:13] <&Atma> she gets it
[06:14] <&Atma> sometimes things don't have to be complicated. if she gets it, that's all there is to it
[06:14] <&Atma> no question

I'm sure not everyone will agree with what Dr. Rayne says, but her points are solid, reasoned, and all towards the sake of the children and parents of now and those of the future. Is this effect some amount of awe? I wish more people could read this all over the world.

Knowing people see the world this way makes me smile.
