Currently I'm writing two novels simultaneously - one at a time has become too routine.

The fifth book in the Heilsing cases - The Darkness Within and What Dreams May Follow, a sequel to my first novel which lead me to the book that I am currently reading.

Never Stop Dreaming - I'm having to reread it to keep all of the minor character's names consistent.

Love ya,

Sally

I recently finished the book Shesus. It is a little hokey but a great story line about the future. Though it is not a story about transgender, it has a good gender flair. Over all a good read at a discount table price.

Johnathan Livingston Seagull - Richard Bach

So many parallels do I see in this short story, it's so simple, it's beautiful, it's wonderful to bring a tear to my eye.

Be free, and love...

"Goat Husbandry" McKensey

It's a good look at early husbandry in England from the 40's to the 50's, containing a good bit of amusing and practical advice.

Hugs,

I recently bought "Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars" by Nathalia Holt and I have started it. So far it's an enjoyable read about the women who worked behind the scenes but performed a vital role in the space program.

But then I saw Ben Bernanke's recent book at the library "The Courage to Act: A Memoir of a Crisis and Its Aftermath" about how the government and financial institutions dealt with the recession of 2007. I found this to be really interesting and it is well written.

I am currently reading 3 different books. The main one I'm reading is Vengeance In Death by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts). It's part of the "In Death" series (a romantic suspense about a cop in the future). 

I'm also reading Shadow Play by Iris Johanson.

And an ebook called Suborn Rising: Beneath The Fall by Aaron Safronoff (I am not sure if this is in any other form).

Not including these 3 books, I have read 33 books in all of 2016.

Hhmmm....Not currently reading any real books  but I'm reviewing as many journal articles relating to the "Cloward & Piven Strategy" (including its tactical applications, current & historic) as I can manage w/o making a 56 mile drive to a university library.

The Silent Deep - The Royal Navy Submarine Service Since 1945 - Peter Hennessy & James Jinks.

I have a bit of a militaristic background and have a fascination with submarines. I have over thirty books covering their history, technical and use.

It makes a change from my detective novels (especially Agatha Christie).

The Imp Series by Debra Dunbar. I'm on book four now. It's a great fantasy series about an Imp who has been hiding out here on Earth as a human for forty years, which is a really long time for demons because the Angels are always hunting them down and killing them. Since she is an Imp she loves all manner of practical jokes, causing trouble, and generally being naughty but she's learned to tone it down to not get caught. Her exposure to humans has also changed her in some ways so that now she actually is beginning to have some very human-like emotions which is where the author gets a good portion of her plot intrigues from!

I actually just finished a book by Dennis Weatley called "The Devil Rides Out", about a group of friends who must rescue another friend who has become entangled with a band of unscruppeless satanists in 1930's England. In the process of rescuing their friend, they discover that the satanist priest is trying to locate a talisman in order to aquire new black magic powers, which would result in plunging the world into an apocalyptic war. Their task now becomes not mearly saving their friend, they must kill the priest. Their pursuit of the priest takes them through the world of the living and the dead, and pits them against the Devil himself.?

 

Next, I might start my yearly reading of "The Lord of the Rings". Obviously a favorite!?

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

      Congrats Josie, I am so happy for you. What a great opportunity! You'll do just fine...don't worry.   Wish you the best at your new job, Susan R🌷
    • Susan R
      I am so sorry to hear about the struggles you are dealing with right now.  I know it seems like this pain is going to last forever.  It is all temporary.  The pain will stop.  You might try an attempt to communicate the severity of your pain and your feelings to your mother.  Tell her you need to talk to her and lay it all out.  It may be difficult to believe but she loves you.  Your mother sounds like she is completely unaware how much suffering you are experiencing.  You should also convey that this is not going to go away on its own.  During your conversation, you might even suggest a need for counseling to her.  You should also reach out to see if there are any Trans support groups in your area.  Most larger metropolitan areas have them.  These were a big help when I was younger.   There are resources on the main forum page that may also assist you.  Please check that out.  I don't know your age, resources, mobility so some of these suggestions may not apply.   Just know that you are an important and incredible person that just needs time to find yourself.  It's a difficult journey but with some help, you'll find your way through it.  Please share more so we can give you better information and support.  Thank you for sharing what you did.  Reaching out is so important.   Susan R🌷

      That's great! Congratulations! Have faith in yourself and if you believe in God him too. I need to change jobs but am afraid of change and failure. I need to get over that. I hope you have a great first day  Ashlee ❤️

      You are not crazy at all...maybe a little more open than me but even that's debatable.  Role play is healthy in my opinion.  We all fantasize to some degree.  Sometimes it's all internalized mentally and other times we externalize it like you may be doing with yourself.  My wife and I do this in subtle ways and it's sometimes soothing and other times exhilarating depending on the situation.   Susan R🌷

      I use an online cosmetic calculator to check expiration dates prior to purchasing cosmetics for relatives, and also to check dates on other products like sunscreens.  Unfortunately, a lot of places sell cosmetics that are about to expire or already have.  So if you buy and don't use right away, it may not be any good or safe to use.

      Wow, I made it through the last 12 hour day of work today and I’m really glad to have it all behind me. I was congratulated by several coworkers and hurried out of the door to go home. I’m not sleepy yet even though I know I’d better wind down to be ready for the big day tomorrow. I’m going to be starting a new position at a new job but I’ll be working somewhere I’ve already been before. It’s been almost 20 years since I’ve worked for this company so I have no idea what to expect. A lot has changed but some is still the same. I’m going to have a management position! It’s exciting and a little intimidating. Hopefully I’ll be able to fit right in but I’m a little nervous about whether or not I can handle it. It’s been a long time since I’ve been in charge of anything. But I’m going to try my best.   Hopefully, I will also find out about insurance and what they are willing to cover. If it won’t cover trans related health care then I’ll probably have to seek another provider, which I think APO can help me with. However I won’t be able to find that out until I get a day off.    I’m looking forward to not being as worn out after work but not looking forward to the late hours unless I can actually get proper sleep.    I’m going to try and stay there long enough to get some experience but not too long because I want to start transitioning soon and I feel that if I can get a retail manager position then I’ll be able to transition with less problems. If not then perhaps I can transfer to a location where transitioning will be less of an issue with the company in the new location.

      That's what I thought, that liquids surely have a shelf life and that bacteria is an issue.  As to powders (pressed or otherwise) I would think they would be fairly long lived.

      Sorry to hear this.  This sounds like an odd rule.  It must be rooted in some sort of deception prevention rules.  You might be able to switch up to using your initials "JM".  I can't see that being secretive or deceitful as it is correct.  You could also make the case to your supervisor that your DL doesn't have your "birth" name on it either and the state is fine with it.    Jani

      Hello Kole and welcome.  I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your sister.  It wasn't your fault.     Your parents may never come around to acknowledging the real you.  They need to see beyond themselves first.  It appears they are not ready to do this.  The best thing you could possibly do is to hang tough until you are 18 and graduate HS.  If you have plans for college, great.  It's a wonderful time to be on your own and experiment.  If you don't have this plan you can still stake out and make a go of it on your own.  It's not easy in today's environment (financially and socially) but it can be done if you're strong.  It certainly sounds like you are.      Please stay safe and keep in touch.  We're a good community of caring people.   Jani

      I dont know if this is the right area to post this kind of thing but everything hurts and i feel so lost. ive never liked myself, i hate my personality and everything about my body. Ive never really thought i seeked approval all that much. Definitely not my mother though. When i came out to her, it felt like i was on trial for murder. “Do you want to talk or have a chat”. For someone without a self esteem, the whole conversation made me veiw her diffrently. She ‘accepted’ me (if never talking about it again and saying she doesnt know how she feels about the thing counts). But now i feel she hates me. That im a disappointment, a failure. Things were bad happiness wise for a while before this but everything just fell apart. I cry myself to sleep, i wonder if anyone would miss me, would my mom miss me, and what would be the best way of ending my life. My friends must hate me, they think im angey, they think i hate them. Its my way of covering up sadness. Half the time i cant even cry, i just sit in my misery. Sometimes i pinch or scratch my self, just to feel pain because i must deserve this. I feel so lost. I feel like im to young to feel lost. Why is it happening so young? My mother wouldnt have that reason if i was older. Why couldnt i find out later. Why didnt i wait to come out. Why did this happen to me. Why. No one knows how i feel because i couldnt bear to look them in the eye ever again.  When will the sadness stop. The crying, the self hatred.
