I want to live joyfully. I want to be present in the moment and joyful in its touch, sound, and taste. I want to treasure the roses on the table my lover gave me Monday because she loves me. I want to taste my fresh cranberry orange bread and celebrate that I made it today.
For my grandchildren Beauty, Wisdom, and the youngest two
May this candle burn for you four, until prejudice yields and the pain of family history ceases to separate us.
Lesbians are those women who fall in love with tomboys. Marivic Desquitado
