Taking up where once I left off

A few years ago I rode my motocycle into wilderness. The sandunes of the Strezcleki and Simpson Deserts were my highways. A tent, under a gum tree was my home.

Transition is like that. You go where few others have gone and what few others have done. Uncertainty is the only certainty. Moving on becomes a way of life.

Eventually you have to come back to the places where and the people to whom you belong.

Somewhere in that wilderness a new person was born, and Simon became Sorèl. I though the cost of that journey was going to be the end of many things. While that was true, it was also true that that the crossing of these thresholds was to be more about beginnings and opportunties than endings and loss.

My chambers in the Adelaide CBD

Tomorrow begins a milestone, for this week I have, for the first time since being an intern psychologist, a nearly full-time client load. Built up from nothing, I am now one of South Australia’s most qualified and experienced clinicians in regards to the pscho-social welfare of the transgender people here in Adelaide. I have actually do not any free time. Since last year my business has grown by 75%, I am earning an income I live off, and most of all, I am making a difference in the lives of those, like me, who are gender-diverse.


Marking moments like this, I believe, is so very important. Sucess, no I am not much interested in this paradigm any more, but knowing that I help make a difference in the lives of others, is both pleasure and privilege.

I’ll be at the office most of the day tomorrow, and for those who who have supported and encouraged me, I shall carry your love in my heart and pass that gift on to others.

In the end, as my business name says, we only have one life to live.
