noodling on the piano

Recently I was noodling around on the piano and thought I would record it. I have a lot of great grand piano sounds on my Korg Krome and this dark grand setting is one of my favorites...

  1. Wow! That was amazing! You noodled your way from a bit of ragtime to cool jazz to Billy Joel. This might be an ironic choice of words, but that rocked!

  2. Nice. Oh and by the way, I won't be checking my e-mail any more so if you want to see me in Montreal, call or text my cell. It's a flip-phone so texting is very poor.

    1. Hi again. I just remembered that although I'll have my phone with me, it doesn't work in Canada. (I don't have "international service.") Thus, once I leave the US (on Friday morning), you won't be able to reach me on it. The only option you have then is to call my hotel. I'd hoped we could make plans to meet before now but that didn't happen. I will have Internet access with my iPad so if there's somewhere on the 'net we can communicate, that's a possibility. I'm on Facebook, Twitter, my blog, your blog and Google sites. Let me know if you have any ideas for how to communicate after Friday if we don't make plans before then.

    2. Will send you a location and time before Friday fear not 😊

How times have changed.

Whereas transition was something not to even contemplate for us, here is a young trans person who felt the opposite pressure. She looks and sounds extremely passable but decided it wasn't for her despite the social media presence of young transitioners potentially inspiring her to.

We are all different and I happen to think she's rather a smart cookie as well...


indoctrination

As transgender people, organized religion hasn't really been our friend however on the other hand it has often had little to do with true spirituality. I needed to learn this over time and much of what I was taught growing up was steeped in the judgmental superstition of society instead of what some creator would demand of me.

Regardless of your belief system, you are a child of the universe and have been endowed with uniqueness and goodness of spirit. You have probably never wished anyone ill will and you have tried your best to live within the absurd coordinate system of humanity. Yet somehow belonging to the LGBT community was entirely your fault.

As I have grown older this inherent irrationality became increasingly evident to me. I knew I was a fundamentally good person and yet I was different in a way which was not of my choosing. Hence with this comprehension my self appreciation and esteem grew in proportion.

Religion for me today seems forever trapped in the misinterpretat…

let's please read carefully

This post is prompted by a recent comment I received to one of my older posts and I wanted to address it.

I used to wonder why some transgender people accepted Blanchard’s work until I think I figured out why: they may not have examined it closely enough. They would experience cross gender arousal and then accept it was Autogynephilia without properly understanding what the term meant and what the theory said: it is an invented sexual “illness” which makes people transition. In other words, it is the arousal itself which causes this desire and not a pre-existing gender identity which does not align with birth sex. Of course, Blanchard has no explanation for the origin of his proposed “illness” only that it is a form of sexual deviance.

My counter proposal? we transition despite this arousal. In other words, the transgender identity is pre-existing and the arousal is the result of the mismatching of burgeoning sexual feelings towards females and this misaligned identity; it is not per…
