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 change

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…

feeling sexy

Here are the results of a recent survey of genetic women:

“A new hairdo, walking in heels and a glowing tan are among the things that make a woman feel sexy. Freshly applied lipstick, newly-shaved legs and a little black dress also have a positive effect on the psyche”

Are you surprised? I’m not because it is exactly the same list that makes transgender women feel sexy.

For a long time the idea was pandered about that transsexualism was rooted exclusively in aberrant sexuality. But of course you cannot separate the sexuality from the individual because that forms part of their overall makeup and the fact that genetic and transsexual women overlap here surprises no one.

We should also add here that women aren't always thinking about sex and neither are transgender women.

Pre transition transsexuals would not readily admit they found these things sexy because they were afraid to be seen as perverted men in front of gatekeepers who understood nothing about their condition.

Today we kn…
