Saturday, I will present a workshop, "Femulate, the Art of Becoming Womanly" at The Conference of Tolerance and Acceptance in Holyoke, Mass.
Tuesday, I will do outreach at two Human Sexuality classes at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven.
May 4, I will attend the Stonewall Speakers' Bash in Hamden, Conn. to celebrate the 25th anniversary of that organization.
One month from today, I will be driving to Dayton, Ohio to attend the annual Hamvention (the biggest ham radio convention in the world) that runs from May 17 to 19.
The roadrip to Dayton is approximately 750 miles. In my youth, I would drive from home to Dayton in one day. As I aged, I discovered that when the Hamvention started on Friday, I was tired from 12 hours on the road the day before. So the past few years, I drive about 8 hours on Wednesday, get a good night's rest and drive the remaining 4 hours on Thursday. As a result, I am well-rested to take on the convention on Friday.
I enjoy my life as a woman for those five days serving as a booth babe, seeing old friends and new technologies, attending talks and banquets, and meeting with the other directors of the organization I represent for our bi-annual in-person board meeting.
I also do a lot of thinking during the long hours on the road. As the New York radio stations fade away, I begin thinking about where I have been and where I am going on --- especially where I am going in this adventure I have been living.
I love being able to live as a woman and I am so glad that I came out as I did to give me more opportunities to experience life as the woman I really am.
