I first spot the surfer as I run down the path that cuts below the lighthouse. I can’t believe it. The Point is full of holiday campers, so motors are banned on the water until eight a.m. and it is only six-thirty. I run down the steps; reaching the bottom of the peninsula, I find that the few souls that are awake are calm and content. Strange. But when I reach the part of the path that curves at the base of Inner Pool I realize why.

No sound.

I really like this story, as a trans woman we need more stories about our lives, the fears we have now that it seems the world wants to step back, try to force those that do not fit what they define as normal back into the closet.

This story says that we are not going back, we matter and you do not scare us.

Keep flying, we win just by existing.
