Letters to a friend on sweet death and an epiphany!

This letter follows a series of e-mails in which my friend and I discuss the mystery and beauty that ecompasses my life as trans, an upcoming writer, a passionate and deeply melancholy lady. My dear friend sitting next to me as I write this is actually questioning me on my choice of word. Melancholy or sad. Sylvia Plath: melancholy or sad? She says, tragic, or lucky. I say, lucky, and very sad. So where do I fall, maybe tragic, certainly tragic.

I pass this on to you. A letter as I lay dying. >>> more
