School’s Out for Summer


“School’s Out” by Alice Cooper keeps playing in my mind:

No more pencils no more books
No more teacher’s dirty looks
Out for summer
Out till fall
We might not come back at all
School’s out forever
School’s out for summer
School’s out with fever
School’s out completely
Alice Cooper – “School’s Out”

Today is my first official day of summer. Since I don’t have to go to school today, I actually get to go to my niece’s kindergarten graduation. She doesn’t know that I’m coming, so it will be a big surprise, especially since her sorry ass father would rather go on a motorcycle ride than see his daughter graduate from kindergarten. I’m so excited to get to go, because I am usually in school when they have special programs and such, but I will finally be able to go to something of my niece’s.

Then tonight, I have a wonderful date planned. Dinner at a Thai restaurant and then a relaxing evening hanging out with my date. It should be a nice night.

Its so good to be free at last.

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

    I somehow stumbled and fell into your Blog. Uninvited. Unannounced. It was a Blog from three years ago about Greecian Folklore I believe. I then fast-forwarded “To School’s Out For Summer” and read lower and lower and lower for two hours. You have a beautiful sense with words. And thoughts. You made me feel as if I have known you for years. Most importantly, you filled a void in me. A void I never knew existed. I compliment you on your perfectly beautiful Blog – Billy

here we are going

Charlie Smith; Single Man, ensorcelled, unreliable narrator, ravenous reader, love child of Jane & Paul Bowles, borne by surrogate, Little Edie Beale, devoted catechumen of Her Grace, Duchess Goldblatt; now living a life of Love & Light, shining from the social-media-free exile of my own personal mirage of Tangier, the Grey Gardens in the Elba of my imagination, here, where I am, going.
