What a good day.

By June 25, 2013

I have been trying to figure out what words would share with the leather journal readers my feelings about all the amazing things happening today, first fresh coffee at an early hour lovingly set up last night by my light and love was waiting for me at what was now a tradition of pre-8am wake ups. There was rare shared conversation this morning with him, and I know he wanted to stay home and celebrate with me.  The energy of the 320,000 other folks including no less than 20 friends from around the world sitting with me in a live blog event on SCOTUSblog.com, we could have been in the same room it didn't matter, big things were going to happen, SOON. 

I sit down to my work station fire up my monitors and open Google - "texas abortion bill" - FAILED - hail DAVIS and her act of heroism for the rights of Texan Women.  It's a good day.

635am Scotusblog.com - now flipping through its reasurring click clack clack as bloggers partake in a rare bit of fun being punchy and light hearted with thier "gallery" which already numbered over 150,000.  The site had suspended all other pages in efforts to keep the site from crashing in what was to end up being a live blog feed feeding over (initial estimates) 1 million viewers throughout the morning blog-cast, with a high-traffic of 312,000 at one point.

DOMA - overturned. The federal government must now recognize the marriages of gay and lesbian couples married in the 12 states that allow same-sex marriage, plus the District of Columbia, and give them the same benefits that they had been previously denied.  They must now offer equal rights to ALL citizens regardless of race, color, sex, or sexual orientation it's a good day.

BUT WAIT!!!! There's MORE!

Prop8 - Dismissed, Vacated and Justice served cold, 10 years almost to the date it became a festering infectious boil on the Golden States progressive nature. Justice Roberts spoke about the Courts decision, "We have no authority to consider the question in their case," he concluded, noting that the court's role was to address disputes that were "judicial rather than political."

The defendants were "free to pursue an ideological commitment" to their definition of marriage as between a man and a woman, Roberts said. 

Good? No Great day!  The sun is shining, the Federal Government granted my - our -  community special notice about these decisions so that we may prepare and gather joyfully, in "fabulous, flamboyant" manner, to quote SisterUnity Devine's description of Pride.  For the last week cities around the state have been preparing for good and bad.  Today, was a victory for my community as a whole. Tonight I will be among my friends and family and new community here in San Diego, celebrating, having a dance for my friends that I know must miss the celebration due to work, for which we are also very grateful to have!  I thank those of you who were my information sources in West Hollywood, San Francisco, Long Beach, San Diego for your eager intrest in disseminating information to me so that I may do with it what I have.

I feel these words shared with you shallow, and unrepresentative of my mood today.  I just keep finding myself saying "It's a good day".  Thank you for reading this small token of my gratitude to the universe and all it offers to us on this the 26th of June, 2013 a good day, a very good day.
