Sunday, April 24


I was brave.
I did something I had never done before.
It was intriguing, fun, interesting, sensual, thought provoking and delightful.
A person can choose to leave a patriarchal organization but the deconstruction of its training, which marginalizes, controls and silences so many people, is a series of incredibly deep mental and emotional changes the individual has to choose to truly disengage from its philosophical tenets.
Suggesting the choice of partner is based on submissiveness has demonstrated a lack of critical change.
I am reminded that not all choose to reject patriarchy, and each one of us interprets the world differently  providing a richness in some aspects of life, in others, it demonstrates the larger process of societal change has just begun.
Let the influence have been a two way road of intelligent dialogue and conversation.
Things end.
People are missed.
Onward on the trail of life.
Music speaks the words of release.

Each one of us decides our worth through the choices we make.

I hope he knows.
