My best friend died in a car accident Sunday night. I found out just a short while ago. He meant everything to me, and my sorrow is beyond explanation. I’m not sure when I will return to blogging, but right now, I can do little else but cry.
I feel like my world has fallen out from under me.

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

    Take all the time you need to grieve. Just try to remember why you write and why we read. We’ll still be here when you return.
