"Travelin' Thru" and these are the shoes I'll do it in!

when "TransAmerica" came out I did not see it but I had heard about the movie. I usually wait until a movie hits HBO, Showtime or one of the other cable channels before I see it. For some reason this movie came up at a support group that I am shadowing (it's a training process you have to go through in order to facilitate a support group)and I decided to rent it just to be able to talk about it at the next meeting. Well after watching the movie I was told that I could not co-facilitate a bisexual group that I had been waiting on since I am not a Bi-identified woman but I could co-facilitate the transexual group. Well since all that happened I have re-rented the movie "TransAmerica" and watched every part of it only to find out how low budget it was and that Dolly Parton, amoung others, just believed in the project so much (thank goodness)that they did it for little to no money. The movie points out what I have always said, people are people, the big difference is who we choose to sleep with. We all deal with pretty much the same things in life and a couple of them are Love finding it and then keeping it...a never ending job and Security, finding it and keeping it also. We spend half our lives either looking for Mr/Ms Right or wondering if we have them...never really being happy with who we are and what we have. Let's grow up and live the lives we have been given instead of wasting little time wishing we could have someone else's...remember we are just Travelin Thru and some are traveling faster and some are taking the scenic route. I think I started out fast but now I have a need to take it slower and learn about some of the things I quickly past up on my way. This movie is not about the life of an transexual female(played by a real woman) but about a transexual female trying to live her life. We all can relate to the fact that it is difficult trying, even in the best of situations, to be ourselves all the time and with everyone. As my favorite country western singer says "Sweet Jesus if you're out there keep me ever close to you as I'm travelin, travelin, travelin... as I'm travelin thru." It's just life so live it and if you are travelin and don't know where you are going take your time and look at someone else's journey, pick up this movie for the weekend and listen to the comentary.
