The “purple hand” was an early symbol of the gay liberation movement and an effort to show resilience in the face of anti-gay attacks. The term originates from Oct 31st 1969 when activists protested the San Francisco Examiner’s series of anti-gay articles by protesting in front of the building. Employees of the newspaper dumped purple ink on the peaceful protesters. The activists used the ink to draw slogans on the building and to make a visible mark of gay uprising.

I mourned this dude for 17 days and 17 long nights. He passed under the cherry moon, and the mystery and pure genius of him will mesmerize, enchant and be a  provocateur for people for centuries to come, a true legend, and we got to experience his presence.  Enjoy the afterlife Prince. <3

It’s superhero time

Emerald City Comic Con starts today and will be happening throughout the weekend. In my opnion it’s fun to step outside the box from time to time and be an alter-ego of sorts, happily surprise others with your unexpected daring, fun, playful, & bold perspectives and actions.  That is how I see events like these, a way to stay in touch with the magic of our youth that was imagination. This is just me for a weekend, at high noon on Monday I return back to my more familiar self.

Winter Wonderland

This year we decided to go to the Christmas lighting festival in Leavenworth Washington.  It always looks so magical, the Bavarian themed village deep in the snow capped mountains on the northwest. Thanks to mother nature, my skills in finding an enjoyable room, and the christmas spirit that leavenworth has, it was a true winter wonderland experience.  There were feet of snow on the ground, snowing while we we’re there, and lights lit up all around town and even right outside our window at the inn they decorated the trees and light post.  This trip made our holidays even more enjoyable, great memory.

Holiday cheer time of year

Yuletide is a time of year for appreciation, generosity, kindness, magic, love, and all those other warm feeling moods. There are many ways to take part, I just hope that you do. Regardless of your religious & political beliefs, this is a time of year in our American culture to embrace the diversity that makes America so special. Be kind to each other. Tolerate those that are different than yourself. Display affection and generosity, in whatever ways you are able to. Spread and share in the holiday spirit.

Below are some links to local ( Seattle area ) organizations and communities that reach out and help spread cheer during the holiday season. The holidays are a great reminder that we are all part of this world, we all have joys and sorrows, success and failure stories…..we all share some type of common ground.
