There have been many reasons these past few years to feel deep remorse as an American; things that a government ‘by the People’ should never have enacted on The People’s behalf. I could write a treatise on these assaults to our humanity, but will spare you that, at least.

In our country, lines have been increasingly blurred with regards to separation of church and state, and I am flooded with gratitude today that our Supreme Court, at least, has demonstrated wisdom in reinforcing this boundary.

Freedom to love whom we wish without legal bias can only give rise to protection under the law for everyone. It’s all I can do to sit still and write this. Consider it my virtual dance of delight.

  1. I do agree with you here in as much as it is a right to marry whom you love if you choose marriage. My partner and I decided long ago not to marry but there are many whose choice to do so has now been righted. Have a good holiday.

    1. Thanks, Renee! It was a whirlwind ๐Ÿ™‚ My husband and I lived together for over 10 years before marrying. So I’m all about choice, for sure. No matter the person, no matter the gender, marriage can be challenging as well as rewarding. And a real eye-opener for those who are fastened to the idea of romantic love. People change, love changes, grows, evolves. It’s an incredible journey, if we can manage it together – or at least that’s what I’ve found! Aloha.



    While it is still them v. us
    There remains further to go
    And we shall remain wary
    If not to say untrusting
    Observing, observing
    Hoping, while working quietly
    Stolid and sturdy, deep rooted
    In the fecund underground

  3. Very supportive of all expansion of rights for love and expressing love in the manner that all people are wired differently in. All we need is love and acceptance, Bela. ใ€Šใ€Š โ™กโ™กใ€‹ใ€‹

  4. Of course, maybe need to put this in print: I never felt people after 1860 or so, should have shown or displayed the Confederate flag.
    Let’s say it out loud, it represents hate and bigotry NOT southern pride nor southern “hospitality,” Bela.
    Unfortunately, saw one on a red truck on Ohio on 7/7/15. Yuck! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
