Happy New Year

May all of you find your inner self's and peace this new year. May you find and care for what or whom is truly important in your life. Let the bigger picture show what is not worth the energy of worry or despair. As we are only in this life for a short time, taking peace and love in those that welcome our courage and love, is wise. Let people in your life that will recharge you. Wake to see the sun rise. Tell someone, "Thank you." Tell someone, "You're a good friend." Express your appreciation to others. Make today count.

Happy New Year!

Thank you!

A difference

It's a shame not enough people care that they have the abilty and power to make a difference in the world, in their community, family or workplace. Stand up and take a stand. Tell a story. Give an opinion. If you don't no one will know better and then you have only yourself to blame.

Gay Rodeo coming in January

Rawhide is hosting the Gay Rodeo in ARIZONA. Come for a visit!!

Back they come

How is it that a single scent, sound or touch can bring back memories? And how interesting they are memories we typically fight to keep from coming back. How hard do we keep these at bay and how much energy is spent on locking up memories, emotions and that scares or touches us? Must we be the robot that feels nothing so difficult or joyous so we only exist and are merely content? Is that Okay? Would it be wrong to influence others to feel what we want knowing it may only bring pain?
But then there is tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow...

Looks like travels will be taking us to Chicago, Denver and Florida in the next six months. Looking forward to it, too. In Florida we will most likely see the Animal Kingdom.
Reading many books lately. Light fluff to heavier fluff fiction. My birthday is Sunday and I turn 37 and not unhappy as some people are about birthdays. I enjoy spending the time with the people I care about.
Good night.

Ohio 2

Hi All,
Going to Ohio, again, for another week long training. The community seems a bit on the conservative side. They don't have an active LGBT group, as well. Maybe I can get some reading done and immerse myself in a good book.
112 here. Just a tad on the hot side. Washed the cats so they shed less. Room is all ready for Mom to move-in. She will be here Saturday.
Take care all. What do you all want to discuss?

Spending a week in Ohio. I still have not recovered from the three time change. The green is everywhere here and I have scene about a dozen or so deer. Some really lovely homes here, too. Work is going well, but am looking forward to going home. I miss my family.
Hope all are doing well.
Take care.

The temperature is getting hotter here. We are looking at many 100+ degree days ahead. Fortunately, I will be heading for Denver to work for a few days where it is a tad cooler. Dry heat is still hot. Much lotion and plenty of water is needed to combat the effects of the hot dry air. While many get to enjoy the pleasures of spring, we in the desert saw merely a blip on the radar that was gone to quickly. Maybe next year.

The search

Hello all,
I took a look at the personals in today. No, not looking for a date, but maybe someone to have coffee with whom shares similar interests. Or maybe I just look to remind me of that part of myself; an outlet maybe. Anyone else with similar experiences? Like reading a GLBT themed book or watching a movie specially themed. An outlet. hmmm.
Good night.

My daughter usually comes with me, but she will be playing in a qualifying chess tournament so she can play in the State tournament.

Pride Event in Phoenix

2006 "Party In The Park"
SATURDAY, 4/1/06: 11:00 am - 9:00 pm Parade 11:00am
on3rd Street north from Virginia
History of the Gay and Lesbian Movement On June 28th, through 30th, 1969, after continual harassment by the New York City police, the patrons of the Stonewall Bar, located on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village, openly defied the unjustified raids and took to the streets in demand of their civil liberties. These riots continued through the weekend, until Monday morning. The gay crowd numbered over two thousand, and in this act of integrity and self affirmation, the modern Lesbian and Gay Rights Movement was born and was soon formally launched into such organizations as the Gay Liberation Front.

Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian and Transgender community is welcome at UU

Unitarian Universalists are a welcoming group:
THEIR VISION: The Office is guided by the vision that someday we will be able to put ourselves out of business and that oppression against bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people, whether it be overt or subtle, will be a thing of the past.
PART OF THEIR STORY: Unitarian Universalism has been on record as supporting the rights of bisexual, gay, and lesbian people since 1970. The Office was formed in 1973. We have advocated against sodomy laws and job and housing discrimination. We have advocated for ceremonies of union and same-gender marriage, the right to serve in the military, the right to lead congregations as ministers and religious professionals, and the right to be parents...

Non-fat, No Whip Mocha

Where is the best place to get a mocha? Starbucks seems to make the best mocha I have tasted. Friends tell be Einsteins has better regular coffee, though. Now the question is which Starbucks to frequent. At this point, I seem to have a preference for the Starbucks on Stapley and the 60 next to the AMC. The one next to Trader Joes on Gilbert is okay, too. Where do you go and why?

Wake up and smell the effort

Proof that positive events do happen in the valley of the sun. I know people are out there (forgive the pun), I just can't seem to hear or see them in the east valley. Hello? Are you there? What can we do as a community to help those who are in need of enlightenment? Should we meet for coffee?

L Word

I have found has great recaps of the L Word for those, like me, who don't have cable, but enjoy the show. Who is your favorite character and why? Me, I like Alice. She represents the Bisexual contingent in a releatively (considering its TV) postive light.

Lets Play Chess

A poem

I wish I had the strength a touch of your hand gives.
I wish I had the energy one of your smiles creates.
I wish I could see the sparkle of love and kindness in your eyes.
I wish I could hear the music your voice elicits.
I wish.


Brokeback Mountain

I find it quite interesting the need for some bisexuals to claim Brokeback as a “Bisexual Film”. Why not “Gay Cowboys”? In their day it was incredibly difficult for a Gay man to come out and live a completely different lifestyle. Just because the two men married and/or had relations with women does not make them bisexual. Did I say that? This coming from a woman who abhors labels! If we take a close look at the two characters, we could see Ennis as “Gay” and Jack as “Bi” or both as gay and one more determined than the other to “make normal work”. Jack wanted to live happily ever after with Ennis, but Ennis could not break out of the fear of breaking the normal mold that was instilled in him from a young age. Even at the end we see Ennis’ view of what he thinks happened to Jack; this view stemming from his childhood bias. Brokeback is a story of two men who fall in love in a small town, in a time and place such love is seen as perverted, not normal or crazy. Under those circumstances how does a relationship work and succeed? It did not work because they had been taught; their town and community had been taught to see such relationships as wrong. Why not love and relationships without labels? Why must society be critical of others who merely wish to love one another and live in peace?

You are welcome here

I wanted a space where people could come together to discuss questions for which they have found no answere or not the right input yet. I have noticed a lack of community for bisexuals (forgive the label) in the Mesa/Gilbert area and hope to encourage others out there to come together talk, share and enlighten. For those who have no idea yet; sit back and relax. Jump in when you are ready. Just learning? Unsure? Confident? Married? Dating? Nurturing? What is your philosophy on life?
