May each step we take lead the way to Peace.
San Francisco really should be proud that it served as a beacon for the rest of the world to learn what it means to be tolerant. My daughter is asexual and identifies herself as queer. She doesn't generally tell people because they usually just reply with, "you just haven't met the right man/woman yet." Allowing all people to feel comfortable in their own skin is vital to our society.
Agreeing with you on so many levels: acceptance; non-judgment; equality; freedom to love whom we choose; an inclusive community in which to live and bring up a family; governments who recognize worth however it arrives. We have a long way to go; pockets of Right Behavior exist, thrive and live to tell about it. I'd like see a place like that for a period of time to get a feel for the rhythm of their days,
One of the things I absolutely love about growing up in Vancouver was its progressive community....very much in the foot steps of San Fran. Yay for this finally taking motion!!!
Andrea, what a lovely way to have spent your glorious youth and formative years... I'll bet you are an amazing world citizen with capabilities beyond your years and a wisdom many seek yet struggle to find. I would love to meet you if you come to the Bay Area.I was pleasantly intrigued by Vancouver. Spent a couple days there one fall not too many years ago now and just adored so many aspects of it: the landscape; the First Nation people, the handicrafts; the forests; proximity to ocean, cliffs, rivers, incredible flora and fauna; the affordability of it all. If it ever becomes necessary to leave the USA, Vancouver is my first choice after years of careful consideration of lots of nice places. Thank you so much for stopping by, it's so nice to get comments. How's your new machine working out? I remember the pic of you when you set the camera timer and then stubbed your toe hustling back to your mark.
