About three months ago, I was looking for a new place to live because I had a very unfriendly neighbor who made it uncomfortable to live here. Then she moved out. A new lady moved in, and I am now feeling very blessed. She just warms my heart. We are the same age and talk nearly every day. We’ve gone to dinner a few times and she even took care of Isabella while I was gone. I’ll be going to her apartment for Thanksgiving this year. I am very thankful for having her as my neighbor.
Speaking of neighbors, a few months ago, this really hot guy moved in next door. I’d spoken to him a few times in passing, but never got to learn what his name was or what he did for a living. Last night my neighbor and I kind of cornered him as he was loading up his car, and we were unloading groceries from my car. I not only found out his name but where he works. He’s very sweet, and unless my gaydar is completely broken, he’s very gay. And from my observation, I think he might be single. We will see how this plays out.

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

    Always fabulous to have good neighbors and friends… especially if they’re hot, gay and single!
    Best of luck!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

here we are going

Charlie Smith; Single Man, ensorcelled, unreliable narrator, ravenous reader, love child of Jane & Paul Bowles, borne by surrogate, Little Edie Beale, devoted catechumen of Her Grace, Duchess Goldblatt; now living a life of Love & Light, shining from the social-media-free exile of my own personal mirage of Tangier, the Grey Gardens in the Elba of my imagination, here, where I am, going.
