Inspirations: Kimberly Huddle

I have, in the past, written about people who have inspired me.  I have, for example, written about Donna Rose, Professor Jennifer Finney Boylan, Sandy Empanada, and my bestie Linda Lewis.

I think I should write about more of my inspirations.  And I will.  These are in no particular order, and I'm sure some (like my "Big Sister" Mel) won't want to be featured.  Fair enough.  But when considering who I'd want to write about that I haven't written about yet, well there could be only one first choice.

Because, in her words, "there are no gooder choices."

Before my reawakening on Halloween 2008, I was looking at TG related websites, like Fictionmania.  Other websites I encountered were Linda Lewis' pages, the Vanity Club page, and many pages that no longer exist.

One of the ones I found on Myspace was the travels of Kimberly from Texas:  better known as Kimberly Huddle.

I finally met Kimberly in February of 2009.  I came directly from work, so I was in drab.  She was more Beautiful in person than in her pictures.  And so genuine!  She made me feel at ease and we spoke about our lives.

Kimberly, the Night I met her

That led to a wonderful friendship.  I've seen her several more times on her visits to this area.  (On one of the trips she alleges that I tried to kill her.  It's not my fault Texans can't hold their alcohol!)  ;)

At Tavern on Camac in Philly

Kimberly has been there when I needed her, answering questions and providing encouragement.  She knows when to be stern as well, and when to say I'm full of sh*t.

You see, she thinks she's not that smart, having never been to college, etc.  She couldn't be more wrong.  Anyone who worked on Pershing missiles has MAJOR SMARTS!  And more importantly, she is extremely Wise.

And it's Wisdom from the Pain.

Kimberly is a Beacon to so many!  Her blog, her stories, and who she is, are a true Inspiration to so many who simply can't do what she does, or be who she is.

And, as I've said many times before, Kimberly's blog inspired me to start mine.  Then her moving her blog here off of myspace encouraged me to do the same.  So, blame her for that.  ;)

Kimberly, you are truly AMAZING- a True pioneer and and a Truer Friend.

You are one of the Bestest friends a girl could have, and I am so glad you are in my life!

    But she posted the comment under her other name, so I didn't post it.

  2. Hah! Sometimes my own stupidity astounds me!
    Love the hell outta you Sophie! <3
