To My Readers and Followers

I wasn’t sure what, if anything, I was gong to write. For most of the day all I could conjure up were blank pages. It’s been this sort of up and down, feast or famine sort of time for me recently. There are moments when something will blaze through my thoughts and too many when the muse remains silent. It’s alright though, if I just let my mind go at its own pace, something usually happens; like now for instance. I just let my thoughts drift and before I know it, I have landed somewhere interesting.

Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, I said I was looking forward to the time when being myself wasn’t a extraordinary event. When going to the store, or meeting friends, didn’t require detailed plans or in deed, any more effort than anyone else puts into such things. A time when life was… well, normal.

I have, in many ways, reached such a point. When the issues of what I am are less of an issue then who I am. When being transgender is just one facet among many which describe who this person named “Kira” really is. It now just one label among many, which I can use to describe myself. It does not define me.

One of the consequences of this is, many of my posts are beaming more benign. 

It is true, some days I struggle to find something interesting to post, other times what I do decide to share is of little interest to the majority of those who chose to follow this blog. Food, movies, music, books, art… the list of my many interests is long indeed and I, being the chatter box I am, will gladly talk, (write), your ears off if you give me the chance about any one of them.

The thing is, I built this place as a way of working through all of the noise in my head. To separate myself from the thoughts and emotions which so often threatened to tear me apart. In so doing, I have found there are many people who have an interest in such things… the more mundane? Not so much. Don’t worry, I’m not upset or even worried really, there are those among you who take the time to stop by regardless of my ramblings and I appreciate each of you more than you can know. I also know there are many for whom such things hold no interest. I understand and I wanted to tell you, it’s okay. 

There are millions of blogs in the world and no one has time to read them all. All we can do is find those few which grab our hearts and hold our interests enough to keep us coming back. If I no longer provide such interest… I wish you well and will honestly say you will be missed. By the same token, I cannot and will not apologize for whatever direction my writing takes me. I am not a static thing. I am a human being and so I can and will change over time. I hope many of you will continue on the journey with me.

Understand, I will have good days and bad. Times when depression, anxiety, even anger will motivate me, just as there are and will continue to be times when being trans will be enough to set my teeth on edge. Yet I cannot see those things continuing to be the main focus of the blog or my life for that matter. One can only wallow in self pity for so long before it becomes stale to any half way sane person in the room. 

I’ve said before, I want to expand my experiences, I want to share my likes and dislikes with you. I want to give you the chance to get to know me… the real me, with all of my sharp edges, and beautiful facets.

I hope I can keep your interest and more importantly, your friendship as the future continues to become the present.

 

Sincerely,

Kira

The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the show along with Steven Molaro. All three also serve as head writers. It premiered on CBS on September 24, 2007. The seventh season premiered on September 26, 2013.

The show is primarily centered on five characters living in Pasadena, California: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, both physicists; Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon’s equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, mechanical engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrappali. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny’s social skills and common sense.

Over time, supporting characters have been promoted to starring roles: Leslie Winkle, a physicist colleague at Caltech and…
