Waking Up

For years, I’ve had the hardest time waking up in the morning. It was pure torture. However, for the past several weeks, I’ve woken at 6 am or thereabouts and am wide awake. I can’t wait to get out of bed. I have no idea what has changed. I go to bed about 10 pm every night. I get up one or two times to go to the bathroom and then around 6 am I’m raring to go for the day. I never thought I’d be this much of s morning person.

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
