I went to see T today. I had to help him with a problem that he had. Once we got that resolved, we got in the car and headed to the store. On the way we talked until I got a call from K. By the time I was finished with that, T was finished shopping and checking out.
As we headed back to T's house he got a call. He was speaking Vietnamese so I didn't know what it was all about. As he was talking and I was driving, I reached over and took his hand. His fingers closed around my hand.
When his call was complete, he looked out the window and said nothing. I was driving and I sand nothing. We were still holding hands.
There was something in that moment of silence that really caused an explosion of love feeling inside me.
I am gay man in his 40's who was married for 18 years to a straight woman, who is still my very best friend. We have 4 children together. She is now remarried and we still want to be supportive of each other and make a stable family for our kids.
