Can you tell I love rainbows and butterflies? (Grinning). And books!

Can you tell I love rainbows and butterflies? (Grinning). And books! To me rainbows not only celebrate being queer and our #lgbtqia community, but also make me think of magic and possibilities. Butterflies, especially Monarch butterflies, have always felt to me like a source of magic, strength, and inspiration. And books, of course, are pure magic all on their own. They transport us into worlds and other people’s lives, taking us from the stress in our own, and giving us so much comfort, insight, and healing.

These stained-glass rainbow butterflies fittingly hang in front of my YA and MG fantasy lit bookshelf, with some of my favourite, repeatedly read books. (I have so many more favorites, but I’ve been buying more ebooks lately than hardcopy because they are cheaper. But I hope to get paper copies of my favorites in the near future.) #rainbows #stainedglass #rainbow #LGBTQ #lgbtqiapride #butterflies

I am going to wear these awesome rainbow PJ bottoms as leggings

I am going to wear these awesome rainbow PJ bottoms as leggings because: rainbows! To me they represent both being out and proud as a lesbian, and magical hopeful rainbows. My neighbor and friend Debbie picked them up for me at Winner’s!

My lovely artist neighbour Jeanette just surprised me by giving me her rainbowy psychedelic jacket!

My lovely artist neighbour Jeanette just surprised me by giving me her rainbowy psychedelic jacket! Every time I saw her in it I mentioned how beautiful it was. I love rainbows both for standing for the LGBTQIA community and for hope and magic and beauty, and she knows that. And as a fellow creative soul she loves colour, too. I’m delighted! Colour makes me happier – and the kindness and generosity of neighbours and friends always does.

And though I still find many things about Christmas hard, yesterday I wrote a ton of Christmas cards with meaningful notes and Petal and I delivered them to a bunch of neighbors in my building. I think it helps to know that someone is thinking about you, especially when it’s a hard time of year or if you’re alone. And many of my neighbours have been dropping off cards for weeks, which reminded me to.

What nice thing has happened to you lately or have you done for others?
