Bon Voyage!


A friend of mine sent me this picture as a “bon voyage” for my cruise, and I thought it was absolute perfection for this post. As this post publishes, I will be on my way to get on the ship. I am very excited. I’ve never been on a cruise before, even though I was supposed to go on one back in January. I keep feeling that something is going to stop me from going this time, bus so far so good.

Though I am going on this cruise with my mother, I do hope I can get away from her occasionally to explore the boat on my own (and explore some of the men on the boat). One friend told me, “Have fun. If he seems hot and fun, fuck him for me.” Another friend suggested I find a nice gay couple to have a ménage à trois with. I think both seem like a good plan. I will just have to see how it goes. I am trying to be bolder and more adventurous,this I am trying to get out of my shell a little. That doesn’t necessarily mean sex, but maybe I will meet some fun people onboard.

No Internet access until I get back on Saturday, so I have scheduled my regular posts throughout the week. I have a post set up for Saturday, but if I am able, I will do a quick post when I’m back in port.

Love you all. Have a wonderful Memorial Day!

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
