Kept Us Running

My coworker and I flew down to Washington, D.C. yesterday to pick up some objects for the museum. Well, the ordeal began when we went to pick up our rental car and the rental car agency refused to give it to us. Long, complicated story and reason. It took calling the university’s CFO to get the matter straightened out. It was a two hour long nightmare. Then we tried to go to a few museums before meeting up with the person with the objects, but were largely unsuccessful because the guy decided to meet us early. We packed the stuff and loaded the van, another two hours. Then, we head out of D.C. Another nightmare. Traffic was at a standstill. We were averaging one mile an hour. We were supposed to make it to Wilmington, Delaware, but we only made it to Baltimore. I hope the rest of the trip today is a smoother ride than yesterday.

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
