I believe in simplicity. I believe in feelings and family, friendship and fidelity, forgiveness and fortitude. I believe in miracles, meditation, motherhood and make believe and that music is the only real magic this world has ever seen. I believe in concocting and consuming colorful cocktails and fussing over and feasting on fabulous food. I believe in living out loud. I believe in laughing until your face hurts and loving until your heart breaks. I believe in behaving boldly and when warranted, badly, taking bubble baths and being barefoot. I believe in poetry, puppies and playing in the park. I believe in seeking without ceasing that which sings to my soul and strengthens my spirit. I believe in dancing in the rain and digging in the dirt. I believe in honest expression and the golden rule. I believe in Nature and naps and that naïveté is sometimes necessary. I believe in goodness and gratitude, grit and grace. I believe in unity and the power of the universe. I believe in being authentically awesome. I believe in being better today than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow. I believe in challenges and change and growing pains. I believe in the inherent worth of every creature, being and life force on this planet. I believe in honoring the individual journeys and paths of people whether I understand them or not. I believe in letting people live their truth and trusting that it’s right for them. I believe in lifting up and letting go. I believe that death is just as sacred an experience as birth and that it is never, ever an end.

Mostly, I just believe that I’m never going to stop learning what it is I believe.

lizlyon asked: What have been your favourite albums this year?

jhnmyr:

Don’t get technical on me over release dates, but the one I love the most this year has been the Lord Huron album. I think that probably has the most plays. Night Beds, too. 

I could NOT be MORE stoked that Lord Huron just got this plug. I had their album on repeat for MONTHS last year & it is SO INCREDIBLY GREAT.

If you haven’t heard it, GET ON IT!

Miles Walser’s performance of his poem “Nebraska” TRULY brings it all into perspective on this day…the day we remember far too many of our Transgender brothers and sisters with deep love and deeper sorrow.

Let us, as allies, not forget that THIS is the reality for those we love and yet it needn’t be so. Let us stand BESIDE, BEHIND and if necessary BEFORE our Transgender brothers and sisters as beacons of light for acceptance, equality and unity to those who do not yet understand.

We, too, remember.

“People of all sexes have the right to explore femininity, masculinity—and the infinite variations between—without criticism or ridicule.”

—Leslie Feinberg

“Your conscience is the measure of the honesty of your selfishness.
Listen to it carefully.”

—Richard Bach

Why the term is "transgender" and not "transgendered"

Here is some yellow paper.

We say it is yellow because that’s what color it is.

Now, imagine some stuff happens to the white paper - something spills on it, it’s left in the…

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.”
