No, Hillary Clinton is not the Goddess Returned, but come what may, she is bringing change.
The very first time I heard Bernie Sanders speak, I knew who he was
knew the energy he was representing
knew that he was being fed from the same wellspring of evolving consciousness by which so many of us have been being fed lately on this planet.
This wellspring offers the energy of community
It offers the energy of equality
It offers the energy of love.
In a civilization that values profit about all else

This has always been true, but in the current political climate, when states are passing laws regulating the use of bathrooms by trans and gender non-confirming people, we’ve been telling this joke more.
Sometimes gallows humor is all you have.
Here’s what happens when I go into a public restroom. I am female-bodied, but dress in a way that fits my own understanding of my…
