Are we "too gay"? Our current selection of bulbs for the string of lights running from the tree in the front garden to the entry gate proudly boast the colors of the rainbow. The colors of the gay pride flag. With a rainbow windsock hanging next to the end of the string.
Our whole neighborhood knows us. I am one of two of the only original people left in the neighborhood. We have made no effort to hide who we are from anyone. In 2005, when we got married in Toronto, we had a reception BBQ right here in our yard with the rainbow flag proudly flying.
Day 29 of the 30 day blog challenge ask me what my 3 wishes would be. First and foremost, I'd have to wish that discrimination of anyone based on something that they can not control would vanish. People like me would never have to wonder "Does this look too gay?" We would never have to worry if someone was going to get a crazy idea and decide to vandalize our home or hurt us or our dog.
The lot next door
My second wish would be that dandelions grow on a dandelion farm and not in the vacant lot next to my house. They have a beautiful cushiony bloom that would rival any flower. However, what they do to your lawn when they are all said and done is a crime.
Our prize winning grass
My third wish would be that life was 10 % longer. I hear almost on a daily basis and now, I understand it more realisticly. There is always just one more thing that you wanted to say or to finish. Always something else, if there was a little more time.
Have a great day everyone. These wishes of mine are for you too.
