Moment of Zen: A Favorite


There have not been a lot of moments of zen this week, because of the death of my aunt, missing my much needed vacation/cruise, and going back to school early. Because of the misery of this week, I wanted this week’s moment of zen to be one of my favorite pictures. I used this picture once before on this blog in a different context, but I love it for many different reasons and just wanted to share it. I find it so incredibly sexy. I don’t know if I can describe why I find it sexy: maybe it’s the tattoo, maybe it’s the perfect little nipple surrounded by just a bit of hair, maybe it’s the blond underarm hair, or the freckles, or that he’s not too muscular, the other guy’s hand on his shoulder, or maybe it’s all of the above. I just know that I find it incredibly sexy and it brightens my week to look back on my earlier post with this picture and remember all the subtleties of this picture that make it a moment of zen especially after a particularly dreadful week.

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
