Cool, Happy Things 51

I have to thank my friend for reading my tarot cards for me, and just being an understanding friend. Thank you.

Cool, Happy Thing 40- In Praise of Drag Queens

Drag queen get a lot of flack for being ostentatious, freaky, teases, etc. But I think they are some of the greatest performers out there, they are in fact, shining aspects of the Goddess. Does that seem silly? These are men who love and admire what it means to be a woman so much, they will not just play at being it, but create whole personas around it.

I used to hate being in this body. I hated I could not be as thin and androgynous as a boy. I hate that I get cat called at night alone. I hate that I get treated like a weak little doll at times. But I remember that I don’t need to hate my body, and being female does not make me weak. If a drag queen is not limited by sex or gender, than why the hell would I let myself be?!


Cool, Happy Thing 35- Beltane

Today is Beltane, the Celtic traditional first day of summer. Also as a pagan, it’s a major fire holiday (which is good as I am also a bit of a pyro). In England, the holiday isn’t until the 7th of May (really supposed to be called International Workers’ Day- don’t ask), so really I suppose this is more of a pre-celebration of the beginning of the the late Spring, start of summer season. This works for me. :3

Earlier today, me and Mark spent the first nice day here, out taking pictures and playing in the park. I ended up playing with so many fallen tree blossom I did feel like the Queen of Spring. I’m the Queen of Fire! Watching all the dog run around happy also put a smile on my face. It was a really simple day, and a really good one too.
