I have become such an emotional person! The other night I watched the movie "Bridge to Terabithia." Now, let me begin with the fact that I had never read the book or seen the movie before. I had seen some trailers and from those trailers I assumed that the movie was a child's fantasy story. Well I guess I got sucked in because I found myself crying near the end. I won't spoil things by explaining exactly why, but I really cried! The movie kind of set me off and I have been feeling kind of sad since. I guess I am wallowing in my own sadness.

You might wonder what sadness I have to wallow in and you would be right in a way. Things have been going pretty well. I do however feel a kind of deep aloneness or disconnectedness that I sometimes dwell on. I guess the movie gave me the opportunity to revisit that sad place. I know that this sad place is something relatively new in my life. It came with the territory as I transitioned. Transsexual lives are not easy. It is all too easy to feel sorry for one's self.

Back to the movie. I enjoyed the movie and recommend it, just be aware it isn't a simple kids show. It contains some real sadness.

I am feeling more up now and hope you are too.
