A place of peace

Recommended Posts


Inhale the air

For once life seems fair

Up on this mountain 

Where there is no doubting 


Looking away

Started on the highway

On the way to this peaceful place

Where im not a disgrace 


Mirrors dont bother me

Its not what i dont see

It the beauty 

As If accepting is my duty


This cabin

All i hear is laughing

I know who i am

I wont make my joy scram


My personality 

And sexuality 

My gender

Taken out of the blender


That creates me

And everything i want to be

In this peaceful place

The worlds saving grace

That creates us

And everything we want to be

In this peaceful place

The worlds saving grace


Your words inspire

And create peace in place of air

In a world that needs

What we have to offer

I just finished watching ‘Mountain Between Us’ So it’s interesting I would read your poem today and you talk about a mountain. In all of us is the will to survive but it’s not activated until we really need it. Once you get to the top of the mountain you can enjoy the view. As you take in the sights you begin to notice how far you really have come. Then you can put your flag up and say in pride I made it. Then you have a choice. You can climb back down the mountain or start climbing the next one. Life doesn’t give us a break we have to take one ourselves. Smell the fresh air, take in all the new colors and expieriences, enjoy the moment, and then pack up and move forward. Always move forward. 


Keep climbing!

@Hellothere,  the one place in the world where I have no care for me physical presentation is in the natural world. I am a long time hike/backpacker/mountain biker. And out there, I am free. Out there, I am not viewed by gender. Out there I breathe the peace of creation.

I penned this many years ago as I stared at a distant horizon at the end of a long day; an escape from the world of concrete and asphalt, men and machinations. I had come out to my wife one month prior. 


The sun settles gently into the west
And the early evening warmth slowly wanes
Silence and stillness fill these moments
Noone intrudes
and nothing disturbs the solitude
Time slows
Night will slowly envelope this citrus sky
And tomorrow will inevitably come.
But now, here
Forgotten are the sordid fears of the past
And the fleeting dreams of the future
Only now remains.
Only now reigns
And here am I.

      I tear up at just about anything even remotely sad. Even some sad music can get the water works going. I’m okay with it though. Feels good to be stretching my emotional range.

      Found out my nephew Nick came out as genderfluid and mom accepted it.Asked him where he got his advice and told her from me.She told me thank you.My cousin Lewis,he did take it well too and is glad I helped out with advice.They both noticed he loved dressing as the opposite gender for a long time.14 years old and wants to dress as Nicole.

      I cry at the ending scene in LOTR-Return of the King.  When he sees Arwin.  And it continues when he kneels before the four hobits and tells them “you kneel for no one”.   I lost it before now I’m a wreck.  Lol

      The other I watched a documentary on elementary particules and physics and I cried loll

      I freakin cry over commercials!   Movies and TV series with sad or tear jerking scenes plow me right under.  My wife laughs at me so much over this.   I admit I like the freedom to do so now.  I don’t have to hold it in or hide it anymore.   😭😢😉

      I think you are doing great with your makeup.  I’m very inexperienced but it looks really good to be.   It amazes me that there are still places that still are homophobic.   It’s a bit out of your way but the University of Vermont is extremely tolerant and supportive toward LBGTQ and the pay well too.  Vermont is a wonderful place to transition so we will take you!!!

      I always used to tear up watching emotional movies.  Now I do so even more.  The nice thing is that I no longer have to feel self-conscious about it.

      Well that sucks. Hopefully you can find another way forward. I don't know what the situation is in Arkansas, but here it's legal to discriminate against trans people. Our colleges are pretty tolerant though. May you find an employer that doesn't suffer from recto-cranial inversion.   Hugs!

      Well, I finally got the talk by my principal due to two calls from unidentified females voicing concerns about me wearing makeup while giving GED tests. He said he personally doesn't care how I choose to express myself. But with attendance being as low as it is, he really doesn't want to create any more variables that might threaten the school's budgetary futures by pushing away new or current students.    I knew it was coming, but I let myself think it'd be much further down the line. Yeah, it hurts, and yes, I'm doing what I've taught myself not to ruminate and spiral back into depression. But dang it...I was finally feeling happy about myself. Oh, well....just keep repeating "progress isn't always linear".

      I always tear up at the end of the movie, “Far and Away”.  The ending pulls on my heartstrings in a happy way.  But recently my wife and I watched “Boy Meets Girl” and for whatever the reason...it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I had a good cry even though it was probably not the most realistic plot line for a movie.   Susan R🌷   LOL, I noticed I had already mentioned “Far and Away” in a previous post on this same thread back in Oct.  oh well!  It’s hard to keep track of all the posts I make.

      Well, I've bathed and applied a generous amount of baby powder to prevent chaffing....now it's time to put the rest of me on. Weight gain to me is putting all that silicon back on. Weight loss is taking it off at the end of the day. What HELL we girls put ourselves through just to look nice. Go figure?   Be safe. Be Smart. You've gotta be STRONG to carry ON. (An extra 20 pounds? Thank god I didn't opt for a ridiculously  bigger cup size, or butt size.)

      so far no movies has made me cry at least not fully cry but some has made some tears come out
    • Donnie_1961
      Work with what you've got. And if you don't GOT then go out and BUY IT!   Be safe. Be Smart.

      That's one of the government's reasons for not putting an X marker on passports, but mostly "it'll cost too much to implement those changes" which is demonstrably incorrect. But personally, I would assume that's just one of the many considerations the individual should make when planning international travel. Some places are hostile, others (like Saudi Arabia) reportedly refuse entry to anyone with an X marker on their passport. So, that's kinda convenient, I guess? Incidentally, I've done some investigating since reading and posting this, and it seems that if your state's drivers license permits an X marker, then your Real ID will, too.  But I know that there are some people with a severe enough level of dysphoria or emotional triggers that having a gender marker on an ID that's different from how they identify/present will cause distress or out them as trans. So, as it stands, it's probably just a trade-off that the individual will have to make for themselves.
