Summer Reminisced

I want to write about my summer in a positive way and not feel like I’m bragging. Intention stated! Let it be known that I had a lot of great times this summer, and a lot of down times, too. I’d rather reminisce about the good stuff.

Things I did this summer:

– Banged on a drum for the first time and found a love for it that hasn’t abated; attended weekly drum circles in Pittsburgh.

– Danced my ass off in New York City while wearing a pink tuxedo.

– Attended the Lambda Literary Awards where one dude from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy told me he liked my jacket.

– Found the Radical Faeries and balled my eyes out in my first heart circle.

– Scrubbed pots at a hippie commune while dancing to Madonna.

– Went to the drive-in and initially got blown away by ‘Magic Mike’ until the romance subplot took over and totally blew.

– Spent a couple days languishing poolside, writing, socializing.

– Saw Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings at an outdoor concert on a day when I was feeling lousy and left feeling like the weight of the world had been lifted off my shoulders.

– Started writing a book that I’m super excited about.
