Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Serenity By the Sea, the Provincetown Roundup

In gratitude to the spiritual healing I’ve experienced from being a member of Al-Anon, I want to give a shout-out to the wonderful Provincetown Roundup, now in its 33d year. Tex and I were lucky enough to be able to attend two years ago; this year it will be online. I love Al-Anon just in general, but the opportunity to be surrounded by other queers in recovery is a true gift. See you there?

Serenity By the Sea, you get one pingy-dingy! To everyone who works so hard to make this beautiful event happen every year, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Thank you for surrounding us with so much love.

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”) As I recover from treatment for breast cancer, however, I’m just going to post whenever I can manage.
