I saw a tweet with this pic that said, “Quand tu as eu trop chaud toute la journée et que tu n’as même pas pris le temps de te mettre entièrement nu…”
English translation: When you’ve been too hot all day and haven’t even taken the time to get fully naked…
My heart goes out to all those who’ve been suffering under extreme heat this week. Thankfully, we’ve been pretty mild in Vermont with only yesterday having a high of 80 and Saturday and Sunday having a high of 59. I do not miss the extreme heat and humidity of the South where the heat index was predicted to be 112 degrees.
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.
