"Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple…"
"If I had followed my better judgement always, my life would have been a very dull one."
Some clever swallows have figured out how to open automatic doors in order to nest in a parking garage. How harmonious!

As technology gets so user-friendly that even illiterate people can operate smartphones, it’s getting hard to keep animals from not using it.
I bet the swallows had this vague sense of wonder the first dozen times they saw the doors open. Maaagic!
"Am well. Thinking of you always. Love"
"I want you to feel something when you hear my name."
"You’re drunk, and I’m drunk, and I’m just exactly drunk enough to tell you anything you want to know. That’s the kind of girl I am. If I like a person, I’ll tell them anything they want to know. Just ask me. Go ahead, ask me."
"Guys like me are pretty invisible. In some ways that’s a good thing and I’ve even had some guys say, ‘Why do you want to tell the world about us? Isn’t it better to just stay secret and pass?’ But it can be really isolating - to not know anyone like yourself who knows what you’re going through. The first time I met another transman in person, it was like a weight lifted off my shoulders. Trans women are a lot more visible, but there are actually many of us transmen in Singapore. So I’ve just decided to be out about it and I’m going to do a documentary about my transition.
I hope that by making this film and by being visible, that other transmen won’t feel as alone as I did. Nobody has done a documentary like this before - personal stories, peeks into our lives to show that we’re more than just our surgeries. So far the response has been amazing. Lots of people have offered support. But the thing that I feel best about are the emails I’m getting from all these guys saying how just knowing that I’m out there makes coping easier. It’s a real lifeline.
I understand that being out like this might have some personal cost, but acceptance will never happen unless some people are willing to put it on the line. And that’s what it means to ‘Man Up’, isn’t it? Taking responsibility and care for those around you, even if it’s not easy.”
