getting the fear

You know why I am super interested in airports and airplanes?

There are many highly competent and talented people from many different countries all working together, despite cultural boundaries, to safely get people to where they need to go.

It’s a profession full of bright engineers who work hard to correct any fatal flaws from previous aircraft, ensuring that the lives that may have been lost as a result of said flaws will not be lost in vain but will essentially help make air travel safer moving forward.

Lots of pilots are bilingual since English is the universal language of communication in the air.

And it’s all such a massive and lengthy operation with so many moving parts and almost all of it goes off without a hitch and it’s just so inspiring. All of it.

i feel kinda like a giddy, foolish middle schooler, and i guess my relationship experience is at about the same level as one, but i’m having a lot of fun toying around with physicality. hanging out, having a good time, feeling safe and comfortable, sneaking kisses when others aren’t looking, playing footsie under the table while casually maintaining a conversation with a group of people, secretly slipping a hand under their shirts and tracing their backs. keeping things subtle in front of our friends out of politeness and to maintain normalcy, not because there’s any actual danger in being caught.

being and acting gay has always been something tinged with shame and fear for me before. whatever’s happening now is all new and exciting and confusing and i have no clue what’s going on. but i’m liking it.

my paranoia, being vague as fuck: something bad is going to happen

me: what?

paranoia: something…..

me: *is suddenly hyperaware of everything & everyone and prepares myself for death or danger at any moment*

Everything you’ve wanted, I have done. You asked that the child be taken - I took him. You cowered before me - I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you!

IMPORTANT for Northern CA friends:

Sonoma County is home to many undocumented and similarly vulnerable people.

Some are too scared to get help during these fires for fear of being deported. For people who can get there safely, Elsie Allen High in Santa Rosa is offering a sanctuary for people to safely go during this time.

Everyone is suffering and we must be there for the most vulnerable people in our communities.
