Paul Neyron rose 2

Tuesday so far

I tried to go to sleep at 1:30 a.m., but couldn't get to sleep.  I finally got to sleep around 4:00 a.m., and woke at 10:00 a.m.  That was less sleep than I would have liked.  I read online when I couldn't get to sleep.  I had found a site called Dyssonance by following a few links from posts Biyuti made.  Dyssonance had a link to a PDF titled "Introduction to Transness" by A.E. D'orsay.  It looked like the PDF had been published a few days ago.  I read it, and it went along with what I've read about trans history.  I was surprised there wasn't a mention of Mario Martino, but there were mentions of several trans women.  I'll recommend it to A. and Dennis Stone.

Preciousmellow had updated the Lovesong 'verse with a long chapter.  I had wondered if that 'verse was done, because the last update was in December.  I read that.

I paid various bills.  I went to the AT&T store and paid my phone bill.  I went to the grocery store.

I went out to the yard after I got home.  I may take a few more pictures of the blue mistflower.  All the mistflower in back of the house is white.  I don't know why it became the alba variation, because what I got was the blue.  The white looks like it will bloom in a few days.  The mystery pink rose still has a couple of flowers.

Later: I finished up an editing job.

Later still: I spent some time reading various of Dyssonance's posts.  Many of the concepts were not new to me, but they were explained well.  She puts it in language that would seem to be harder to argue with, though it appeared that many people still argued.  I liked the self-awareness, description, and affinity ways of thinking about things.
