There's not a day goes by that I don't find myself in some situation that doesn't present me with the fact that I'm lacking in knowledge or experience, that gives me cause to take pause and question, that requires that I seek an answer. It may be a moral dilemma that demands I go within, explore, examine, and reexamine my core beliefs. Or, it may simple be about reading the instructions that came with a new appliance, that little booklet that I was so quick to discard. Just this morning I was feeling frustrated regarding my seeming inability to adhere to a simple program of self-discipline necessary to reach some specific personal goals in an attempt to find and fulfill my purpose. I sat down, picked up a little periodical that came in the mail. I was reading a brief article about another person's experience, and there it was, the answer I was looking for, all in one brief sentence of seven words. "The truth is out there."

Have the ferries of time and gravity taken the opportunity to wave their wand over you, working their charms and casting a spell of either magic or mayhem? Have you gained a significant amount of weight, or experienced an injury that has kept you from the gym, resulting in your Adonis like body being reduced to that of a mere mortal. Maybe you've faced a catastrophic illness whose occurrence and subsequent treatment have left you but a shell of the physical being you once were? Meanwhile, you're still here, and there are still people that love you and care about you. And there are others that are just waiting for you to be strong enough to once again open yourself up to being loved and embraced, lusted for even. None of us are going to get out of this game alive, and even the rare few that were blessed with being pretty from the beginning will remain pretty to the end. Integrity and character are assets that are impervious to the ravages of time and gravity. To allow vanity and pride to supersede and define us is absolute blasphemy. We are all bigger than that.

Metrosexual.. is it the aesthetic equivalent of being bisexual? Or, is it simply some awkward state of limbo between being gay and straight? I'm still not quite sure how I feel about this term. Am I to be offended, or perhaps feel honored to know that there are those that wish to emulate what they perceive as being my lifestyle. Is this the equivalent of the white kid from the suburbs that dresses and "acts" black? A rather warped desire to be a "person of color" without the "inconveniences" so often associated with actually being so?

I threw this together for Jack's and my San Francisco friends and extended families. We've been visited by some pretty harsh reality and profound sadness regarding the very grave condition of a beloved member of our community. I prefer not to name names, or post his photo. Though this is a tribute to him, I've no desire to use the schazenfreude of his situation to promote myself. And, if you have no clue who I'm talking about, this is just my testimonial or homage to the inevitable loss that we all face in life. Regardless of our beliefs, or lack thereof. There remain times when we all pray for a miracle.
