Yes


After thirty-four, nearly thirty-five years, it has happened – I begin to feel equal to my fellow citizens. Spending the weekend, Pride weekend, in New York and will be back on Tuesday to continue the posts about timelessness.


Great Pride in being an American today.

  5. Yes, indeed.

    I read this rather good piece in the Economist a few days ago:

    Are some people beginning to mind their own business about what individuals do in their "private" lives?

  7. I have been waiting for this! You gotta' love two guys who met across a crowded Tate Britain. An artful match indeed. In August we celebrate our 38th. Our love is no less great or more equal than yours. June 26, 2013: a day for lovers and lovers of justice everywhere.

    1. David, thank you. I'm not quite reeling from the shock, more bemused how quickly I went from being a "bachelor gay" to being an old married man. I must say, I love it.
