My friends Sandy Larry and I had a lovely picnic near the water on Centre Island in Toronto. The weather was perfect... the tunes great and the wine yummy. *wait wine... noooooooo that would be illegal*
Shot taken during research for writing "The New Girl," published 2003.
Just a quick pic of my new lovely dress
This was taken at the Art Gallery of Ontario.... Frank Gehry did the most amazing renovation. This curved wall I found so spectacular.
This pic I am seen thru an art installation at the exibit "Come up to my Room." The artist Mariela De Felix used traditional methods to create 15,000 rosary beads. The process is ceremonial taking 6 human days to boil down rose petals to create one rosary of 50 beads.
Getting ready to head out in the very chilly weather. I do however love our Canadian winter days when they are super bright with beautiful blue skies
she teells us "Being a transvestite is a state of mind, first and foremost. It's an identification with the female persona, and a little bit beyond. Soft, smooth, frilly. A desire to be compliant; a yearning to surrender, to be used and to please, but in a feminine persona. It's perfume and lipstick and face powder. It's arched eyebrows, mascara and eye shadow. Frilly curls and smooth satin and varying shades of pink and purple and lavender. It's a bent wrist and a soft giggle. It's a mince in your step. It's doing what you're told, and with a smile and a thank you. But most of all, it's reveling in the knowledge that this is what you are and being thankful for every opportunity to express yourself, thusly."
