For my 52nd, seeking donations for 2 causes

This picture is me at last year’s Hill Country Ride for AIDS, with Thor. I’ve done this ride every year it has existed. I love it beyond anything. It is one day of the way you wish the world was. And the cause is very important, there are people I love who are HIV+ and I want them — and people I don’t know, actually especially people I don’t know, taken care of. I want people who don’t have anyone, people who don’t have means — I most especially want those people to have organizations that take care of them. I usually write a post for my birthday asking for donations — and I am, I’d love to get donations of $52 for my 52nd birthday.

A refuge of love & peace during the debate (for AIDS Walk Austin)

Hi. This morning, when I thought about that debate, my heart just wanted to curl up & hide in a corner. I can’t stand all the awful things that will be said, the horrible ideas, etc. So I used to be a preschool teacher & was raised by a preschool teacher — I can’t deal with meanness & petulance. I need to start raising money for the AIDS Walk, so I thought I’d create a diary filled with niceness — happy music & stuff like that. And links where you can donate to my AIDS Walk page
