Second Book on the way!

I am so happy to announce that this second book ” Circé’s Art: a post transition evolution “, different from the first one which is a memoir and yet so intimately attached to it since it is also about my transition and identity as a woman. This time, it will be through my paintings that I document and visually narrate my views and awareness of certain aspects of coming into my own as a woman. The paintings from 2001 onwards speak to my evolution since transitioning, as a woman of… Read more Second Book on the way!

Coming to grips with me.

As many humans, I have this tendency of not really seeing or fully acknowledging my worth, I am self-deprecating and don’t always understand that who and what I am has value, is valuable. Being an artist, I’ve created so many paintings over the years and though I know I’m pretty good at what I do, more often than not I find I’m not good enough, not creatively or technically, I seem to judge what I’ve created as somehow of lesser value than it is. I am catching myself, trying to… Read more Coming to grips with me.

Trusting my story to my co-writer.

and trusting myself to put it out there. I first began writing my story because of a need to better understand myself, a bit like I have a habit of doing when working on a painting, I will get up from the easel and back away some ten feet and just relax and look at what I have done and then decide on one thing I really want to change in order to improve upon the painting, I do this throughout and it has served me well. I mention the… Read more Trusting my story to my co-writer.

Another Trans memoir, maybe not.

I look upon my memoirs as a throwback genre of how women such as myself used to write their memoirs , mainly about childhood and when I knew I was a female in the wrong body, about the transition. Then I read my story and discover that it’s so much more than this, my life, even as it relates to being trans from birth, speak to adventures I’ve had along the way, my memoirs are filled with all manner of events, usually having little to nothing to do with being… Read more Another Trans memoir, maybe not.

Fresh winds, new hope.

I find that my life is filled with exciting and new activities and events, ever since I decided to write my memoirs ” Breaking Free:45 Years In The wrong Body“. Still working on getting the French version done as well as that coffee table book of my paintings that pretty much follows my evolution since transitioning, and it will be bilingual.There is another project that may very well see the light of day to which I will be attached but I will wait until it actually takes off and that… Read more Fresh winds, new hope.

Motivations.

I wrote my memoirs partly because I saw it as a way to show women like myself as being human, with all this entails. My story is imbued with tragedy and humour, with self-loathing and acceptance, I wanted to share how my mind was able to survive thanks to what I would describe as my creativity which allowed me to often transport myself elsewhere when things got too difficult.I wanted to tell a story of hope and of coming into one’s own with a good measure of happiness and I… Read more Motivations.

On Being Brave

Yesterday, on not one but at least two different Facebook book groups that I’m on, I was told how brave and courageous I was simply because I transitioned. I know that these people are well meaning and all, that they were likely being supportive and wanting to share their encouragement with me. But here’s the truth of the matter, and I do think this happens to people all the time and for many reasons, it took little to no courage, it wasn’t particularly brave of me to go through with… Read more On Being Brave
