Thank you hippybear!

Through the magic of timezones, I was waking up to your posts over breakfast most days, and it was a delightful bit of the daily routine.

It is Bear Month here at Metafilter! Thank you hippybear!

Hey, um... wow! Thanks, zamboni! Thanks for all the kind words everyone, and you're all very welcome. I'm glad the posts were appreciated, and I hope some of them were helpful in some way, either through inspiration or affirmation. It was a strange journey to go on, certainly.

One post I didn't make was about doing clothing swaps as a part of Pride. It's a boon for people all over the gender spectrum to get free clothes that suit them that they don't have to deal with trying to buy. This has apparently been a thing in cities, but in smaller communities it is especially a great event. Something to mention to your local member of the Pride planning committee next time you talk to them.

I don't think we're going to get Pride here in Spokane for the second year in a row, so this was a bit of a meditation for me to keep me in the spirit. Thanks for going on the journey with me!
