The film clips I’ve posted here this morning come from the old cable television series, Queer As Folk, which was pretty daring for its time. The boy in the clips is the character named Justin, a high school senior who is just discovering the world of gay men and gay sex. That’s his mother in the background in the middle clip; they’re participating in a counseling session when Justin gives this little speech, which pretty much ends his mother’s hope that Justin is “just going through a phase”, as they used to say.
In keeping with my summer schedule, I rose at 6:30 this morning, to take my three-mile walk on the beach. The sun was just coming up and a nice breeze coming out of the east kept things cool. I dunked myself in the Gulf, then I took a nice warm outdoor shower on our patio when I got home.
This will be a busy day for me. After I do my morning writing, I have a painting project to tackle in our living room. A carpenter is also coming today to perform several small projects for me, so I’ll be tied down to the house all day. No YMCA for Martin. 🙁
Have a great Friday, everyone.
