See the guy at left in his white a-shirt? I have no idea who he is, but about ten years ago, I befriended a young man, age 18, who looked exactly like him. We are still friends today. He’s straight, and I am not, but we get along well, despite our different orientations and our age differences. He never lacks for girlfriends, but seems to have difficulty staying in long term relationships. I don’t know why. Maybe his beauty gets in the way of things. But I’m glad he’s my friend.
I slept in late today, til 9:30 AM. I don’t know why I felt so tired but I did. Of course, by the time I rose it was too late to walk on the beach. It’s too darned hot down there by that hour.
My day will be a quiet one. I’ll spend the morning writing. This afternoon I’ll get a haircut and visit the supermarket, as I’m in need of various provisions.
A friend is coming to visit this evening. We’ll watch sunset and then dine at whatever restaurant we choose. He’s one of my old roommates from my law school days at FSU, and we always enjoy each other’s company. I love having friends I have known since my youth. We never seem to run out of things to talk about, and we’re forgiving of each other’s faults.
Wherever you are today, friends, I hope you’ll enjoy your Tuesday.
