Alone


In a comment yesterday, an anonymous commenter asked how last week went when I was alone at the office. In one brief word…boring. I did get a lot of work done on the book that I am writing as part of my job, but there wasn’t a lot else to do. The book by the way is a book of oral histories. Anyway, my boss came in long enough for us to do a tour of the museum for a group, but other than that it was just me and a student we have doing research in the museum, so technically, I wasn’t all alone. He’s quiet though and is a hard worker, so it was like being alone. Sometimes it’s nice to be in the office by myself. Yes, it gets boring, but I can get work done undisturbed. So there you have it. While I accomplished some of the work that I needed to get done, it was mostly just very boring.
PS Can anyone tell me what the model in the picture is holding in his hands?

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
