She Comes in Colors



My Lovely First Girl: I dedicate this song to you. It is perhaps selfish of me to choose this song for you. You'd probably say that The Rolling Stones are a gang of old men with misogynistic fantasies woven through their music. But just listen, you may even like it. And it reminds me of you, what can I say? ;-)

And it's a happy song; meant to cheer you up yet as I type this, I'm almost about to cry again. We need to move forward. And keep moving. Even if it's just one step a day. We need to make ground and not stop fighting for what's right and just.

All my love. Always. Mommy

  1. :-D The footage and the song are totally out of sync. It adds to the vintage charm, I guess. ;-) I was 8 in 1967. :O

  3. I am so there with all of you, I have experienced prejudice myself and know it all too well. We do have to keep fighting for what is right so that all people can find and be with the love of their life regardless of sex, race, whatever. The worst of all is that this is all done in the "name of the Lord"!

  4. I am very sad about this too and I live in Calif. My brother is gay and has been with the same partner for over 20 years and they BOTH take care of my mother now! How is it OK they cannot be married??....I often wonder why THAT is OK, that they cannot be married when they have been deeply committed to each other for years and now they both take care of my own mother, both of them!!! His partner will get nothing out of that according to law, even if my mother wanted to leave him something....oh, it's too big to talk about here but I wanted to actually say that tonight, as I write this, they are protesting in SF...a protest that started with 120 people and as they walked down the streets, others joined in spontaneously until now, last I looked, over 2000 people were marching to the park for a protest. The same happened in LA. So never give up, although I know it hurts......one step at a time, things happen and move to another level....they will in this too....give your daughter and her partner a hug for me. I wish these damned churches would just once ask themselves, "what would Jesus do?" sigh......
