If dudes are expected to have a lot of sex

But ladies are expected to stay virgins until marriage

But homosexuality is bad

I’m really confused who dudes are supposed to be having all that sex with

Guys I got it

Society is literally telling dudes to go fuck themselves

I’m sorry I can’t not reblog this

This is the first day in two weeks without any steroid at all. I have already had some interesting rippling energy moving through me that woke me and got me up and taking my blood-pressure medicine a little early, just in case. I do not have expectations for today, except of getting through it.

Thanks be for the non-ceremonial Sergeant-At-Arms Kevin Vickers. Would that we had someone like him in Washington, who is as concerned for the rights of minorities and children as for public safety.

(When I moved here 25 years ago people played frisbee on the grassy Mall at lunch time, and on July 4 everyone who wanted could simply lie on the grass by the Washington Monument and the mall and watch the fireworks explode overhead, without security checks, without iron gates, without listening devices aimed at the crowd.)

A glimpse of 1977

14980893193_c48a01464a_zWhen I traveled to San Antonio over the summer I brought back a bag of old photographs, which I am slowly digitizing, a few at a time.

Many of the photos are undated, so I have to guess at when they were taken. This one, though, says "1977" on the back. I'm grateful for that piece of metadata. It tells me that in this picture, I am two going on three, and my mother is only a couple of years older than I am now.

This was taken in the backyard of my childhood home. That house was made of limestone, with a roof made out of red clay tiles in the Spanish style. I remember that gate around our swimming pool, and I remember the little sculpture of a turtle (visible, though blurry, in the bottom right-hand corner) which had been shaped around a pipe, so that water could be made to spray into the pool out of the turtle's open mouth.

Some years later, when I was a decent swimmer and it was safe to take the railing down, my parents replaced the pebbled concrete around the pool with red bricks. And eventually the turtle too went away, though the little fountain remained. I think I insisted on keeping the turtle in the secret hideaway I constructed in the small space between our backyard and the backyard of our next-door neighbors. But none of that had happened yet when this photo was taken.

So many of the experiences I think of as having been formative hadn't happened yet when this photo was taken. At two there's an inconceivable amount of growing and changing ahead. My mother, in contrast, was already recognizably herself when this photo was taken. She had been a mom for years; she had already grown into the adult she intended to be. Of course there were decades of adventures ahead for her, too -- but I think nothing is as extreme as the changes we undergo as kids.

When I look now at photographs of myself as a child with my parents, I'm conscious of being a link in a generational chain. It's fascinating to imagine our son, when he is approaching forty, looking at photographs of me holding him when he was two. What will he see in the expression on my face, the way I look at him, the way we are together? What will he remember of those early years of stubbornly insisting "I do it," climbing and running and falling, playgrounds and sippy cups?

 

 

I'm taking advantage of the #throwbackthursday / #tbt meme -- which usually involves posting old photos on Thursdays -- as an opportunity to write short snippets of remembrance, sparked by whatever old photo I find to post. I can't guarantee that I'll do this every Thursday, but I'm enjoying the practice so far.

Kaylee the most brilliant 7 year old artist :Mom, in real life if Black Widow and Wonder Woman got married would Black Widow become a princess?
LP:I bet Hippolyta would be OK with that.
K: Then in this drawing I'm doing of their wedding they're both going to be wearing crowns.
LP: Go for it.

Mom finally went in the night

I should have known she'd never have gotten as maudlin and soppy as yesterday if it weren't her last chance. Mom the clam. Haha.

Prior to that, our last conversation was about whether she did or did not feed Puddles the duck to her niece as a child. (The niece maintains she is scarred for life. Mom maintained that she never named the ones she was going to eat, so while she may have fed her a duck, it certainly wouldn't have been Puddles.) Duck for Thanksgiving... sounds pretty good, actually.
