The Breakfast Club (Changing Tide)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We're a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we're not too hungover  we've been bailed out we're not too exhausted from last night's (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:30am (ET) to talk about current news and our boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late, it's PhilJD's fault.

Can you hear and do you care and
Can't you see we must be free to
Teach your children what you believe in.
Make a world that we can live in.

For those who don't find any meaning within, I'm adding the graphic at the left, entitled Rai and Jiri, at Lungha.

The entire Tamarian phrase, you may recall is Rai and Jiri at Lungha. Rai of Lowani. Lowani under two moons. Jiri of Ubaya. Ubaya of crossed roads. At Lungha. Lungha, her sky grey.

The entire Metaphoria collection is here.

The following was originally written in June of 2006.

An Unsustainable Life

This was written in 2010. I've decided it belongs in the autobiography, alongside The Task at Hand.

The graphic is entitled Fire.

What exactly is the medical condition that is treated by transgender surgery? Is it vanity? Something is not right about drastic alteration of a healthy body. I feel the same way about plastic surgery, by the way.

Transgender is an acquired condition, a choice, unlike homosexuality, and I don't think it deserves the same protections.

I've let it steep and marinate, trying to come up with a way to address the comment. And during that time, I've wondered how many people of like mind inhabit DK. Given the number of anti-trans bigots that respond to general news story blogs in regards to stories about people who are trans, I'm willing to bet the commenter who made that comment is not flying solo.

So how should I approach it? I decided that a trip back in time might fit the bill.

The Breakfast Club (Eclipse)

 
breakfast beers photo breakfastbeers.jpg

All that you touch, all that you see, all that you taste

All you feel

All that you love, all that you hate, all you distrust

All you save

All that you give, all that you deal

All that you buy, beg, borrow or steal

All you create, all you destroy, all that you do

All that you say

All that you eat, everyone you meet, all that you slight

Everyone you fight

All that is now, all that is gone, all that's to come

And everything under the sun is in tune

But the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

There is no dark side of the moon really.

Matter of fact it's all dark.

Pink Floyd-Brain Damage, Eclipse

Road Trips

Road Trips

Knot photo knot-1.jpgThis chapter was assembled in August of 2007, out of bits and pieces written back in the mid 1990s, the largest of which was entitled There...and Back.

1995 was the Year of the Trip for me. Spring Break required a round trip by car of 2500 miles for day surgery in the one of my most insane ventures ever. Labioplasty was the most painful part of the whole process.

On the weekend following the week after Spring Break, I traveled to a conference in the Berkshires and exercised my voice. In May I was in Nebraska to protest...and to begin to speak on a larger stage. In the last half of the year I tried and failed to move to Seattle.

The story then comes to a temporary end...

The graphic to the left is entitled Knot.

You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.
