3 Million

Sometime in the middle of last night, I surpassed 3 million page views in my blog. In its 9 year history, this is a milestone. I know for more famous blogs, this is a tiny milestone, but when I started this blog 9 years ago, I didn’t think anyone would read it. I never thought I’d have 370 regular followers. I didn’t think anyone would care about my esoteric knowledge of history, my posts in religion or poetry, let alone would they care anything about my life. Over the past nine years, I have met some wonderful people through this blog. Some have come and gone, some have passed away, others have stayed and we’ve become even better friends. Y’all have helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you for checking  out this blog and following the ups and downs of my life. May we have many more years together.

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

    Congratulations! I look forward to your posts daily! Hope you follow up with news from the night at the museum!

      The Night at the Museum went well. Quite a number of spirits appeared for our paranormal investigator. Some were a bit rude. He uses a spirit box for them to speak through and one called him the “N” word and another or possibly the same one called him the “F” word. He said that often happens, since he is a gay black man. All in all, it was pretty interesting.

    Congratulations on this milestone and all the joy and success which comes with it. Your posts, both in pictures and commentary, has greatly impacted my life. I’m grateful for the ways in which your sharing has stirred my imagination, created new insights and reinforced long cherished memories. My most sincere appreciation for all your efforts and contributions to the world! Just one of the many reasons I’ve enjoyed following you, “Joe,” all these years!

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.
