“Being who you are is so much more important than fitting in will ever be.”
― Cheryl B. Evans, I Promised Not to Tell: Raising a Transgender Child

To my lovely LGBTQ+ community on this #ComingOutDay remember:

 

You matter.

You deserve respect.

You do not have to fit a certain mold.

You are not alone.

 

LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE

quote 2017-03-05 11:38
How much real information is available to ordinary, nongovernment, nonmilitary, nonspecialist, nonrich people? What does 'classified' mean? What do shredders shred? What does money buy? In a State, even a democracy, where power is hierarchic, how can you prevent the storage of information from becoming yet another source of power to the powerful—another piston in the great machine?
Always Coming Home - Todd Barton,Margaret Chodos-Irvine,Ursula K. Le Guin

"Always Coming Home" – Ursula K. Le Guin (p. 316)

 

Shit just got real. A little further down the page, there's a passage that can be read as Le Guin breaking the fourth wall and critiquing her writing of this very text, and then the other character in the dialogue says, "You can't talk that way!" and the potential Le Guin stand-in is like, "True."

 

I don't think I've ever read a book quite like this.

Not all rocks are equally sensitive. Most basalt doesn't pay attention.

This is followed by two paragraphs on the inner lives and personalities of different kinds of rock. It's glorious.

My father came and I began to tell him that I wanted to ride the sorrel mare. He said, 'Get in the cart,' and rode on by. He had looked at me as a woman among the other women, a squawking hen among the poultry. He had changed his soul for his power.

Nothing we do is better than the work of handmind. When mind uses itself without the hands it runs the circle and may go too fast; even speech using the voice only may go too fast. The hand that shapes the mind into clay or written word slows thought to the gait of things and lets it be subject to accident and time. Purity is on the edge of evil, they say.
