The Coolest Bench

Isn’t this the coolest bench? It’s made almost completely out of vines. Okay, the sitting part of it is made of vines. I LIKEย IT! ๐Ÿ™‚

Appropriate Quote for Today

The quote today is appropriate on many levels. The birthday girl lives this saying. Like Walt Disney, she is creative and she actually DOES things with her creativity. She doesn’t just think about being creative, she IS creative. She can get more done in an afternoon than most people can do in a month. So, here’s the quote:

Walt Disney said,

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

If Only They Knew

I went to a party a few years ago. It was a celebration in honor of a famous citizen of the city where I live. I thought at the time, “if only they knew, they’d throw a party for …”

I Still Feel That Way

They still don’t know. She’s not famous, and she never will be. But, her contributions are many.

What’s So Special About Her?

She’s good at imagining how things can be, even if they are not that way at the moment.

She believes in taking care of her body by avoiding recreational poisons, but she does enjoy a good dessert.

She traveled internationally for her honeymoon, something that was probably unheard of in her small town.

She’s all about helping children make music. She’s taught generations of children.

She works for peace, justice, and equality in her own realm. She doesn’t talk love, she lives it.

She cried when my dog was dying and I was sad.

She’s green. I suddenly realized last year that she’s been saving the earth for decades.

She does not worry. She does not focus on “what if” scenarios. She appreciates each day as it comes.

She believes in God. She also sees the evolution of life that occurs around us every day.

She reads stories to children. She reads stories to adults. And, she enjoys listening to stories told by storytellers.

Quiet Goodness

You probably don’t know her. You’ll probably never meet her. But, the world is a better place because of her.

Mom

I love you, Mom.

RuPaul As A Man

I look at the stats for this site, and very often there will be a search for “RuPaul As A Man”. ย I think that’s funny. RuPaul IS a man. He does not have to dress up in order to pretend to ย be a man.

RuPaul As A Woman

We, television viewers, know RuPaul as a woman, or at least as a drag queen. The first time I ever heard of RuPaul, he was on some late night show. Maybe he had his own show. It seems like it was ten or fifteen years ago. He was a tall, blonde,ย glamorousย drag queen. He was really going against the grain then. But now, his drag queen persona hardly raises an eyebrow.

RuPaul Is Bold And Beautiful

RuPaul is a gay man, and does not try to hide it. He’s bold and beautiful when he is dressed as a woman, but is not a woman. Nor, is he a transgendered person in transition. He is a gay man who performs as a drag queen.

RuPaul As An ‘Ex-Gay’

I’ve written about this before. RuPaul was not personally ‘ex-gay’, but he played an ‘ex-gay’ counselor in a campy movie that exposes the lies and manipulation of the ‘ex-gay’ movement in a comedy that plays on every stereotype (just like the ex-gay movement does). ย He plays a man in that movie, But, I’m A Cheerleader, a gay man trying hard to be ‘ex-gay’ while trying to teach young gay men how to be ‘ex-gay’.

I Like RuPaul

I’ve not seen RuPaul’s Drag Race, so I can’t comment on it. But, I like his larger than life drag queen persona. I like that he is not afraid to live out loud and draw attention to himself. I don’t know what effect he has on young gay people, but I hope what he does for them is to give them the courage to be themselves and love themselves as they are.

A Friend Sent the Link to This Song (on youtube)

Her note said, “This reminds me very much of you – in so many ways.ย  You may already know it.” You know I HAD to listen after a comment like that.

Simple and To the Point

The song is simple. It’s probably in the “I wish I’d thought of that!” category. Why didn’t I write that song? ๐Ÿ™‚ Apparently it struck home with a LOT of people. She had a million youtube views in the first month it was posted. Wow!

Who Wrote the Song?

Wendy Francisco wrote GoD and DoG.

What About Her Family?

Funny you should ask. Her husband sings in the Jesus Music category: Don Francisco. Her daughter Annie Brooks is a folk singer.

How Can You Learn More About Them?

Here are some of their web pages:
