Quick check in after being gone so long from the site, due to job issues I have been both seeking employment to pay my bills and working harder on things for my site including "Path". Since my last post 2 chapters where added and research on others is well under way. While I currently don't have a job thus don't have a income outside of Unemployment, I am tackling this period in my life with new vigor. It is the first time in my life that I am applying for work professionally as Brittany and while I have yet to land a job I gain many interviews and even gained a few Freelance contracts on the way to do art work for many companies. Life is hard but if you give in and don't accept it will only seek to further destroy you. Thus I keep on improving and seeking waiting for the day when I will be back on my feet. Now to answer a question some have asked of me.
Okay Ive been asked why call a guide for Transgender people, Path of the Butterflies. To Answer this I am posting a little poem
A beetle fell in love with a caterpillar and she returned his love, but she died and lay still, wrapped in a cocoon. The beetle grieved over his beloved's body. Suddenly the cocoon opened and a butterfly appeared. The beetle decided to kill the butterfly because it disturbed his meditations over the body. He rushed over to her and saw that the butterfly's eyes were familiar--they were the caterpillar's eyes. He had almost killed her, for after all, everything was new except the eyes. And the butterfly and beetle lived happily ever after.
But you need to look things in the eye for that, and not everyone can do it, and sometimes a lifetime isn't long enough.
Dmitri explains well how hate is brought out with the coming change in his poem and it is that hate I wish to try and stop with my work. The poem also reveals that in truely looking at the one who has changed they stand no different then they where before. And while it may be a futal effort on my part to hope my words will change the world, they can at least change and open a few minds which in turn can do the same in thier time.
Even if I dont ever see the day I hope to bring I will go on walking this path for a better day.
