“No one is ever promised and easy path through this snake infested swamp…and then it’s suddenly our turn to cross that black water, or become lost in the past, perpetually locked in suspended states of illusion. Just where are you going? What’s the purpose of your journey? Do you know? Or have an idea? […]Read More Deep Thoughts and a Look Back on 2019
I have a couple of things to talk about here today. It’s Monday, August 27, 2018 and with just 4 more days of August ahead of us I am beginning to look toward September; the arrival of cooler temperatures to Maine, fall festivals and agricultural fairs, the leaves beginning to turn colors and yes, the […]Read More And the week starts…
I get crazy for her some nights, that urge just won’t quit. I lay flat on my back, which is how I sleep anyway, stretch out and try to imagine…oops, did I turn off the stove…? Fuck. And, yes, I generally get up to check if that thought, or a thought about the heat being […]Read More Crazy Spring Feelings

I’ve been thinking a lot about this topic, I watched a video on YouTube about whether it’s okay or not to stay “in the closet” about your sexuality if you are LGBT forever or not. This gave me a lot to think about because I am currently talking to someone who IS living in the […]Read More Closet or Not?
Yes, I said it. Undetectable equals untransmittable. This is a silent secret evidently in the HIV world. I have known this for a long time, but the stigma around having HIV has kept me quiet about it too. I’ve been reading a lot on the topic and I think that if people knew this that […]Read More Undetectable=Untransmittable
