I woke up early this morning. It was still dark. Squinting, I could see the clock across the room.
There is movement in the bed next to me. T is there... sleeping and tangled up in my sheets. I just can't think of a better way to end the year.
This is what I have always dreamed of. I roll over and smile as I go back to sleep. When we both wake several hours later, his face is the first thing I see.
Before getting out of bed, we were chatting about... well... just regular stuff. We got up, showered, got dressed and headed out for breakfast. We went to a local Dunkin Donuts. I got coffee. He got a couple of donuts. We found a small table next to the window. I brought my BlackBerry tablet with me and as we enjoyed breakfast together, we did a little research on a business idea he had.
After almost 5 years, I am still happiest when we are together. We were not doing anything remarkable, just having breakfast and coffee. It's just that we were doing it together, that made it wonderful for me.
As I move into 2013, I am going to make some changes in my life. I'll also try to blog more often. I may also change the focus somewhat.
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.
