Moment of Zen: My Boyfriend 

  

Last week, I had nothing that was Zen worthy.  I felt like my world had crashed down on me, but I am so grateful to have a wonderful, thoughtful, and caring man as my boyfriend.  When he told me to meet him last Saturday, I had no idea that he planned on surprising me with that trip up the mountain for dinner.  He’s also been extremely supportive this week, even helping me with job applications.  I couldn’t ask for a better man.

By the way, I used that picture because the guy looks as if he’s trying to find a signal on his cellphone, well that is one of the nice things about that mountain retreat: no cell service (actually it’s just very limited). However, it is nice that you don’t have to worry about being disturbed.  It’s like we are in our own little world together and none of the outside influences can bother us.

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
