Celebrating my early sixty ninth birthday at Portland Seafood Company tonight
Looking back over the last couple of years, I have climbed so many mountains. Lost of few long term relationships because of stigma and judgmental people but I am on top of the world again. What’s important to me is beginning new relationships and keeping ties, and sticking to my art and writing. I have a wonderful husband and stepdaughter for support, and I continue to maintain communication with my sister and her family, my family in Brazil, and my friends and my doctors, who have stood by me when the times have gotten rough.
