Listened to a cdr of 4 mixes from MEN today and excitement started leaping around in my chest. First the first time, something joyous began to click in terms of flow with the pieces relating as an album. I am full of energy to finish this work so YOU can hear it, too. AND Today was a good day for contact. I admit it felt like being loved. Received email from people asking me when there will be the new photo of myself on the home page. I recently told thousands of people on the Living Rumor list that a new portrait IS coming any minute. I mean it, too. so Check back. Speaking of portrait photography, I made contact with Wim Van De Hulst (see my Sacrificial Cake c.d.) via email again after too long. Amsterdam is not that far away…Hmmm. Had a conversation with writer Thom Jurek this afternoon. He shared numerous pearls of wisdom and speaking with him was a real pleasure. Also, I received startling insight from designer /artist /athlete /musician : Joshua , and from anthropology graduate / “Kiefer Sutherland twin” (imho !), gentleman par excellence : Jason.

Add to this the heat of a 3 1/2 mile run in the Georgia night + desire intensified by looking into a man’s eyes. And I have to ask myself :

Why won’t it let me taste when it pulls me ?
