Moment of Zen: Horses


There’s just something about a man and a horse. Maybe it’s the rugged cowboy image, that of a man with taunt well worked natural muscles with a powerful horse with a slick beautiful coat and perfect musculature. The muscle with muscle is just naturally beautiful to me. Since I read Amy Lane’s “Promises” series, I can’t look at a man with a horse and not think of her wonderful and heroic character, Deacon Winters. If you’ve read the books (and if you haven’t you should), you will hope and dream that a man like Deacon someday enters your life. He is the ultimate dream man. He’s not a perfect man, but then no man will ever be perfect. However, it’s the heart of a man that is most important. Of all the books I’ve ever read, I don’t think there has ever been a character with as much heart as Amy Lane’s Deacon Winters.

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
