Lots of Dreams

I had a wonderful weekend.

The weather was great, and although I had one plan going into it what ended up happening was totally different.  Plans are made to change, and when opportunity made itself available yesterday morning the decision to change was an easy one.

There really isn't all that much of it that I want to share.

We went to see Zero-Dark-Thirty today and, to be honest, it was ok but I don't see it as Oscar-Worthy. I'm just saying....

I watched a little football, but I expect the games I really wanted to see will be replayed later in the week.  I don't have a significant stake in any of the teams and with weather being as nice as it was - I had more interesting things to do.

Instead, I watched some of the Miss USA Pageant - and I wasn't surprised to learn this morning that the two people I chose as my picks to win at the beginning came in first and second.

The infected "bump" in my eyebrow is still there, and I've started taking an antibiotic.  It had spread to my inner eye as of yesterday morning, and this morning was even worse.  It hurt more, too.  But tonight, as I write this, I'm hopeful that I'm on the mend as it's a very curious ailment that seems more inconvenient than dangerous.  But if it's not significantly improved tomorrow I'll have the doctor look at it as I don't want to take it too lightly.

Chevrolet unveiled the 2014 Corvette today (story here).  I bought a new Corvette in 1996 that ended up as a casualty in the divorce, and have no problem admitting that I find them to be a wonderful mixture of sexy, fast, comfy, cool, and....unique.  As practical or impractical as it might be - I hold out hope of owning another one someday.

Dreams are important.  I've got lots and lots of dreams.  I've talked about some of them in the past.  I want to go to Europe.  I want to wear a wedding dress.  I want to start a business that in some way incorporates my photography.  Of course, health and some sort of financial engine are necessarily part of those dreams, but my dreams didn't end when I transitioned.  In some very real ways, they simply suddenly became possible.

Relationships are part of the equation, but I'll be honest and say that the most fulfilling, fun, happy relationship in my life right now is probably so comfortable for both of us because it's flexible, because it IS so comfortable, and because it fits into other complicated dynamics in both our lives.

Tomorrow is Monday.  Another week begins.  It's not even 9pm and I expect to be under my covers in the next 15 minutes.

As long as you dream, you live.

When your dreams die, you die.
