Just the other day I was talking about how life likes to destroy plans and basically throw them into my face, well it’s happened again. Less than twenty-four hours before I was supposed to leave I managed to filet the bottom of my driving foot bad enough that I had to go to the ER for it. Seriously?! I am beginning to think there is a God or Goddess out there with a terribly wicked sense of humor playing with my life. As a result of said gash in the bottom of my right foot, my trip to Texas has been put off for the time being.
I’m on crutches again and had to have my foot glued back together yesterday. Not my ideal way to spend a Tuesday, but hey at least it wasn’t boring? To make matters worse, when I started up my Ford Explorer this morning the brake light decided to pop on, and one of the spark plug wires on the coil pack is arcing to another wire.
Maybe I wasn’t meant to make that trip to Texas, at least right now. It really is frustrating though, because now I have all the stress of possibily having to deal with the local school district. There is nothing that I can do about the situation right now unfortunately. Perhaps we can reevaluate our previous plans to move to Oregon, but either way the longer the time before moving to more stress I have to deal with.
I’m still working on a name for the Transgender Visibility Project that I’ll be starting next month. I have a few ideas but nothing set right now. I’ve been working on that since I came home from the hospital last night. I have to come up with a name that will invoke the powerful feelings that I know are going to be behind the stories of a population that have had little to no voice for such a long time.
While I hadn’t planned on having so much down time until yesterday, this will give me the chance to get all the ideas that are floating around in my head down on paper or typed out so that I’m better prepared to launch this project. I’m excited, but at the same time I’m neverous. I want to give a voice to the voiceless, and while I know that I can undertake this goal there’s still a bit of me worried I won’t be able to do the lives of so many the justice that they deserve.
