Hi girls. A weekend of thinking, remembering all those years that society placed a wall between my life and who I am. The wall of ignorance and unease the general public feels and fears. Yet I also have to confess to my own wall. Just as strong as societies, a defence against an imagined threat where there is none. It was only my own embarrassment and fear that strengthened the walls.
‘ All alone, or in twos
The ones that really love you
Walk up and down outside the wall
Some hand in hand
Some gathering together in bands….’
And there are so many here that love you. Just waiting outside your self imposed wall.
Can’t really do too much about the wall society has put up – it is slowly crumbling – but I can do something about my own wall, we all can. Yes, though I have not enjoyed the feeling of being out with my girlfriends, not being out in public yet, I am dressed daily, sitting on my balcony en femme ( so what if the neighbors see me! ), and open here with you lovelies. After decades of silently expressing myself, the past few months have seen my wall crumbling. Two walls are much worse than one, you have to tear down your own too. Just thinking how great it feels worrying about my hair in the morning, and not hiding it, but now wanting to hide my age lol, and wondering why my Jean’s are shrinking ….
That’s just me and how I’m feeling this Saturday. True to nature, I ramble. 🙂
