I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw was the destruction of DOMA. It was also the morning of my first therapy session. I like to think of myself as a very scientific person but damn if this isn't a sign.

While my doctor is a resident and her last day is, oddly enough, my birthday, she was very patient and knew how to ask the right questions. So I have a couple months with her before she leaves and I move to a different doctor in the building which is nice. Though that plus the news that I can now finally get married in my state (and that we now have some form of precedent to start applying it to all states slowly and with many more battles), I'm starting to feel the inklings of hope again.

I usually dismiss signs and premonitions but the first thing I saw when I got out of the shower this morning was the success with the Supreme Court which was then followed by a successful first visit to the therapist. Maybe it is a sign that things will get better. For all the awful crap that's been going on lately we've taken a step forward and I can't help but feel somewhat hopeful that this means more good stuff is going to come.

I mean, I now have my tacky nerd wedding to plan...
