Obscure Things Worth Living For

The guitar lick I just heard in an old David Crosby song

The majesty of the ocean

Having known my father

Bob and Max

Memories of times I have felt well loved

Having known what it feels like to be a mother

Praying Mantis, Ladybugs and Monarch Butterflies

And Dragonfly’s most of all

  1. This butch wants you to stick around. The world is a better place with you here. I would add one of those smiley face things here, but I don’t know how and smiley faces aren’t really butch unless they have a crew cut or maybe like a neck tattoo or something.

  2. I’m not a stereotypical femme, nor is my fiancee. We are conservatively feminine, attracted to conservatively feminine. We don’t fit the urbandictionary definition.

    But feminine lesbians are definitely a thing that makes life worth living.

    I denied myself the love of another for the first 15 years of my adult life. It was hard and heartbreaking, but life was still worth living. I saw a lot of heartbreak among my friends (all straight) who looked for love and thought they found it, too.

    When I finally found the courage to acknowledge what I am and look for love, I found it.

    Depending on who you believe, our pool is somewhere between a tenth and a fiftieth of the straight pool. Those are awful odds. But they aren’t impossible.

    When my fiancee was a girl (and thought she was straight) her dad gave her two pieces of wisdom:

    – You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince.

    – There’s no such thing as Prince Charming.

    I got lucky. After that 15 years of self-denial, I found love. It won’t take you 15 years if you keep looking.

    She’s out there. No, she’s not Prince Charming. Yes, you’ll have to kiss a lot of frogs. But there are a lot of frogs to kiss.

    And she thinks femmes are worth living for.
