My life has been going well so far. Have been out with my wife and my sister has returned home after a stint to regain her health. October will be a busy one. I have to get everything written down so I can keep up with everything. Seems that ever since I retired my life has been busier than ever. I wouldn't have it any other way.

A Good Summer
gennee
Fall is fast approaching. It's been cooler than normal but I'm not complaining.The summer was good and I and my spouse enjoyed ourselves. Reconnected with an old friend living in California. Have another friend out there also. I have a couple of good reasons to visit California now but even if I didn't I would go anyway.

Many people are settling into their fall routines (kids in school, finishing up vacations,etc.). Before you know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here. The year seems to fly by so fast. Will post more later.

Things Looking Up
gennee
It's been awhile. I was in a down period from May until mid July. My wife went away for a week in July. I hung around the city and sat in the park or by the river or in quiet places. I was a good time to decompress. I took time off from many activities.

What cleared away the dark cloud was when I watched a woman in a wheelchair leaving church service. I have seen many folks in wheelchairs but this woman caught my attention. As she was being helped into a waiting taxi, I thought that once upon a time she was young, vibrant, ad could go wherever and whenever she pleased. Now she needed just for routine activities like standing. That reminded that there is coming a day when I won't be able to do the things I love or even simple things. I need to stop procrastinating and do the projects that are in front of me.

Since then I've written every day and enjoy life more.

Spring Is Here Finally
gennee
The weather is better now. Told my wife that we will be going more than we did last year. Have a few places in mind too. I will going up to Albany, New York for Equality and Justice Day. You could say that I am an activist now. Will be attending workshops, a rally, meeting legislators and other advocates. Looking forward to it. There are some issues that are important to me and I've decided to become involved.

Busy with Life
gennee
It's been a while since my last post. Life has kept me active. Had a bout of illness in January and my wife was also ill. We're better now. Right now, I'm writing and reading a lot. I'm considering a post as an educator/activist leader in TGLB ministry in our church. I will educate the congregation and others about transgender basics. There are still many people who do not understand what being transgender is about. Even in the gay and lesbian communities this knowledge is lacking. We want to do this in June which coincides with pride month.

Hi There
gennee
Hi everybody. It's been a while. I was dealing with some personal issues but things are fine now. I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Most important, be thankful for all the good things in your life.

It's snowing today, with six inches on the ground. My wife and I are staying in and doing the things we enjoy. Last night we attended an open mic event at a nearby bookstore. There was song, dance, poetry, music, and spoken word. My wife and I have read here in the past. I have written over 100 poems.

As usual this time of year is for me reflection about the year past. There has been some wonderful things that has happened. I'm happy that more people are searching for the real meaning of Christmas.I don't care if I get any presents; I'm just happy to be alive and content.

Active September-Eating and Dancing
gennee
September was an active month for me. I attended the wedding of two gay friends. A reception was held at their home. I never danced so much in m life and paid for it the next day. The following week I attended a retirement dinner for the senior past of my church. We dined at a lovely Italian restaurant in the Bronx. It was a joyous time. Many thanked the pastor for his years of service. I appreciated him for making my wife and I feel welcome when we arrived two years ago.

Summer's End; Fall's Beginning
gennee
Summer is over unofficiallly. Yesterday was a rainy end to a summer that breezed by. I enjoyed this summer being out quite a bit.

Fall happens to be my favorite season. It will be an active fal for me. This month I will be attending a wedding and a retirement party. My granddaughter will be going trick or treating next month. I may cook Thanksgiving dinner this year. Have done so in the past. Can't wait till the leaves change their color. Will take a bunch of pictures too.

Anniversary
gennee
It was eight years ago today that I came out to myself as a crossdresser and transgender person. My life went in nother direction and it get better. the journey has been interesting and challenging at times. I wouldn't change anything that has happened.

A Month Of Pride
gennee
I had a wonderful time at my first prom. I haven't danced that much in years. My wife was on the dance floor all night. There ws a great turnout on a very wet and rainy night.

My wife and I served water to the marcher during the New York City pride parade. There were more groups this year. A number of churches that participated was encouraging. Mercifully, many are seeing the light about TLGB people and I'm very pleased about this.

June brought me out of a dry period in my life. I'm very thankful for what has happened in my life and inthe lives of others.
