The cursor had been blinking for an hour, waiting for me to hit enter.  Often I would rise from the desk, go about my night, then return to the desk and consider hitting that button.  The moment I did, it would all change.  Everyone would know.  My privacy would be gone.  I didn’t have privacy

The First Goodbye

I think I was eight years old the morning that I came down the stairs and saw my father sitting at the dining table, his head in his hands.  My mother intercepted me the moment my feet stepped from the final step onto the ground floor of our home.  She knelt so that our faces

Sheryl Lee Ralph, Jonathan Groff and A Life Lived in Service

This was a kitchen of someone who did not cook.  That much was obvious.  I was going to need some Pixie Dust. Two days ago my day today looked like an easy day.  I would train Jennifer around noon or one and then go do the house party I was booked for.  As a day’s work

An AmbitionLess Life

There was a time when I blogged quite a lot.  Even before the internet was what it has become; before the word blog existed, before Facebook and Twitter gave us all a chance to share the inspirations and mundanities of our lives with strangers whose active presence we had never enjoyed, I was writing down

The Gay In The Light

“THAT’S what a FAGGOT looks like!”  So declared a boy in my seventh grade class at St Columban’s, a private school I attended in Portugal.  It was the school I was at when I had my first suicide attempt.  It was not, though, the first time I encountered that kind of name calling.  Years earlier,

Christmas Day 2014

Remember when you were a kid and you just had to have a new bike for Christmas?  Or how about when you were older and you hoped mom and dad would buy you that seniour ski trip?  In one of the film versions of A Christmas Carol we see Fred, Scrooge’s nephew give his wife

Confessions of a Broadway Stay – Put

I have just read a “Cultural Commentary” by an author called Joanne Kaufman that was published in The Wall Street Journal online.  I use the word author with trepidation because what I read is not worthy (in my extremely humble opinion) of publication.  I searched for information on Ms Kaufman and all I could find

Gee, Thanks

I have spent this month reading daily postings about what people are feeling, regarding Thanksgiving and gratitude.  It has been an enjoyable journey into the lives, the hearts, the minds of the people I know, both online and off.  Gratitude is such a funny thing because we all seem to take it, so, for granted.

I had a really uncomfortable moment on Facebook yesterday.   I saw a posting in my newsfeed comparing cancer survivors who use voicebox machines to those probe droids in the Star Wars movies.  The post ended with a qualifying statement that announced that no disrespect was intended and was followed by a series of comments
