Early to Bed, Early to Rise…


I had to get to bed early last night and be at school super early today, so not much time for a blog post. I’m not a morning person, so I’m not so sure I believe in the Benjamin Franklin proverb “Early to bed and early to rise makes and man healthy, wealthy and wise.” I tend to think early to rise makes me grumpy, grouchy, and a bit foggy, especially without my coffee. With that being said, you might wonder what’s up with the picture I used today. Well, yesterday was Mardi Gras. Sadly, I didn’t get to go this year, but it’s always been fun when I did go. The gay sector of Bourbon Street is always a lot of fun, and you never know what you’ll see. Even if it’s Ash Wednesday and the good times have rolled, laissez les bon temps rouler!

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
