A Few Thoughts…Happiness 

First let me say this, I have never in my life enjoyed a vacation (or even just a few days in a row) as much as I did with my boyfriend this week.  It was so easy to be with him: to talk, to cuddle, to be intimate, to fall asleep next to each other, to wake up next to each other, etc.  I’ve never felt this easy companionship with anyone else.  It felt so incredibly natural.

It’s so easy to talk to him about anything.  We can talk about history, politics, education, and religion with so much ease that it is a dream come true.  I love being with him.  He makes me feel so wonderful and happy, and I hope I am doing the same for him.  When we parted yesterday to go to our respective homes, I missed him instantly.  I didn’t want our vacation to end.

He makes me happy, so very happy.

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

    My spouse — we were married in Toronto in October 2004 — died at age 73 last September 1st. We became a couple in September 1992. For both of us it was a second “marriage” and I think we put our past experience and mutual love together in a pact (pledge?) to make this relationship work and last.

    What you describe in your brief post is in essence everything that I miss since his death — especially falling to sleep every night and awakening each morning next to each other. I certainly miss love-making, too; but it’s the physical intimacy that I miss the more.

    My hope is that you may know such love on an enduring basis in your life.

    Many thanks for your lovely blog. It is very meaningful to me and a comfort in my bereavement.
