I want to take you far frm the cynics in this town

I'm Julia. This is my life. My life is characterized by some mix of snark & optimism;my likes range from the delicate to the ironic. I want to be near the ocean. I believe the world is a beautiful place.

This blog is a celebration of nature, of change, of courage, of kindness, of bliss, of life, of the universe.

haaretz:

First generation of transgender rabbis claims its place in the U.S. Jewish community: There are at least six transgender rabbis and rabbis-in-training across the United States and both the Reform and Reconstructionist movements have programs on transgender inclusion at synagogues and in seminaries.

The Forward is running spotlight pieces on each of the six. You can find them here.
This IS Jewish!

Intuitive eating — or whatever you want to call the radical notion of eating what you want, when you’re hungry, and stopping when you’re full — demands that we trust our bodies. Most women learn early and often that their bodies are never to be trusted, that their bodies need strict regulation, especially when it comes to desire, be it the desire for food or for sex. As a result, learning to trust one’s body is difficult enough; when you add in a past that includes trauma and abuse, it becomes harder still. But your body IS trustworthy. I promise you that. Your body is not your enemy.
— In which Lesley Kinzel speaks truth about disordered eating, backsliding, and trusting yourself. (via diverswife)
