The Non-Event

Here, at the keyboard, sitting, am in a 25 year relationship with a fine man. Have listened to his stories of coming out, have read so many that cannot count. For me, it was a non-event.

Can’t say ever came out, period. Have just been me. Made no…

Some thoughts about the Creator

Whether “Let there be Light” or the Big Bang, or who knows what, the result is the same, the current Universe, and us in it. Science is very good at telling us what happens from the Big Bang forward, with no real explanation for what…

So Full

Katherine, my grand-niece sat across from me at Thanksgiving, a curious surprise. Being somewhat curmudgeonly, in the social secured set, and Katherine more progressive, it was not the choice that was expecting of her. …


The first house that can remember living in, was six blocks from the city zoo and seven blocks from the ocean, in San Francisco. Almost all the houses in the outer, (nearest the beach), sunset district, were built on sand dunes. …

The First Time I Had Sex

Being an old man, these days, it was a good while ago. As you can easily image was a lot smaller and younger. There wasn’t much to me then, but that tends to true of most of the really young.

So was just there, sort of floating along, would image what it was feeling like, don’t really remember much, some say they do, but not me at that age.

Then out of nowhere was having sex. Hadn’t had it before, don’t recall at all what it felt like, but guess that is just how things are when you are only 6–8 weeks post conception. ;)

A Shadowfax Adventure

Back in the day, had a yellow Ford LTD, vintage 1970, named Shadowfax. The car was big, luxurious, and above all, the radio was by the steering wheel, right next to the driver’s window, no one messed with what was on it, but me. …

David’s Dream

He wasn’t a dream, that was the problem. One couldn’t wake up and have him only to remember, no longer near. We first met, by me answering a door, at 409 House, in the Haight-Ashbury. The blue sky framed him, and all that was possible for me to…

Remembering Elizabeth

Met Elizabeth the first or second day of being in my new convalescent hospital, heavy on the word hospital. Was ten and a half, just about exactly, while she was twelve. …

Love’s MidSummer’s Feast

Permit.. me.. totell. youa. story. Almost half a life my life ago, my friend, my partner, my love(with apologies to Romeo) died. Our time had been more than some, much less than others.

Had always found it easy to at least like people, often love, this was…

Israel’s Ancient Idolatry

An evening’s discussion with Mr. Nathan Phanai and his questioner Dr. David Khan, brought to you by New Salem University with Dr. Aaron Cohn, as the moderator.

The old man slowly strode out onto the stage. He stopped, initially to look towards the audience. It was still…
