Moment of Zen: A Good Book


Freud is not really my choice for a good book to read, but a good book can transport you away from all of your troubles into another world of possibilities.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    Reading a book not only transports me to another place and time, it also helps me to understand my relationships and the way I interract with people through the author's narrative. It is as much a place of discovery az it is a place of escape.

    QH, "Giovanni's Room" is one of my favorite books too. It is the first "gay" book I ever read, and believe it or not, I read it while laying on the beach.VS and Jay, he certainly does.Loki, I couldn't have said it any better. Reading is a great way to learn and it often gets me started on some research project of some kind or another because I want to know more about these places where I am transported to.
