A Blessing for our beloved trans youth.
The laws happening in Texas targeting trans youth is absolutely breaking my heart. Our trans brothers and sisters (never mind youth) are already such a vulnerable community and they do not deserve this. I wish I could do or say more, & I am struggling. So I wrote this Blessing.

As I floated on the water and my ears dipped under the muted surface, I felt a muffled word riseContinue reading “I hope you FLOURISH.”
