When I was a boy my best friend’s name was Brian. He was Irish-Catholic, born in Boston, and I thought e was the most beautiful person I’d ever seen in my life. I worshiped him. When he became a teenager he looked much like the boy in the photo to the left here. Sadly, I never got to touch Brian in the way I wanted to, but at least I had my fantasies. Brian, where are you today?
Well, I am back in Florida, after spending a week in Wisconsin and Minnesota. I brought a head cold home with me, but otherwise I am doing fine. My boyfriend and I attended a dinner party at a friend’s last night, a really nice gathering that included a visit to a waterfront park where watched sunset and saw a dolphin cruise by as we sipped from drinks and munched on chips. Ah, it’s good to be back in Florida.
I have a busy day ahead of me. I need to replace a light fixture in our vacation rental next door. I need to buy a new plant for our front porch, and also visit the seamstress for a clothing repair. I need to buy groceries and visit the wine market, so I’ll be running around a lot today. It’s what I call a “get shit done day”, and once in a while it is necessary.
Outside, it’s windy and cool today, the first cool weather we’ve had in many weeks. At some point I pan to take a three-mile walk, here on the island, for some exercise. With this head cold I can’t run or go to the gym. 🙁
Have a nice Friday, everyone.
