Hello ! *echo*

    I had a friend who was trans. She took her life in APril 2013. I promised to stay connected to the community so this is one way for me to. I traveled a long road to get here, but I am here! I am married almost 2 years, that's been a challenge and in no way on our account but from grief brought on from other people. My spouse and I are women. *harrr harrr* I have a PhD in Math, I design control systems for aircraft and I am currently working on my own project for which I have funding. Me luvs self employs mmhhhmm! I am tall 6' weich 182 lbs, average build..and incredibly intimidating! If only I had a septer...Kneeeeeel! (lol) My spouse is working on her PhD in psychology and her focus is gender issues. 


    My heart goes out to transgender mtf and ftm. I dont refer to anyone as trans I only refer as man or woman cause its someone elses label which I think is unfair and marginalizes people who are tagged with that/those labels. I think we are all defined by what we do arent we? I am a scientist not a damn lesbian...yeah you get my point! I think transexuals in the US should be allowed some protectin, taser, bear spray, or even a firearm...I have all three! Bring it! Or maybe have gigantic genetically engineered 300lb dogs with great white shark teeth for protection!


    Okay this is my nutty intro...gona leave you with a stunning image! *hugs*

    This is great news indeed! I love to make people smile. My aunt said to me : "if you want to wear that name, you have a lot to live up to. You want to wear the name "blessed" then you must live a life dedicated to blessing the lives of others, because what you give to others comes back to you threefold. understand this.  the names we take are more important than you know, their meanings are important, and that particular name comes with certain obligations and responsibilities, all valar names do."


    I chose my name well. I understand my purpose in life, which is a blessing for anyone to have. I never realized what an impact I have on people until I awoke. Now, eventhough I am careful who I befriend, I do enjoy being the light in someones life, or bringing a smile to strangers. I am the one who blesses.
