anyway. at 23
I can’t breath, my heart is pounding and my knees are weak and it’s a total Elvis song.
I think to myself. What is wrong with me. I am staring at her through a window with 2 students on a editing machine
I think to me: If she was a man, I would recognize this as a crush, but she is a woman so what is going on?
Then, SHE looks up at me and smiles and my heart goes to the floor.
I think. I am in love with a woman. Cool. I can romantically love people. I feel normal. a wave of desire…. and a wave of relief
then panic . this was 1991.
and I lost all my civil rights.
all in one swoop
at 45, I was just sharing my experience with a family member.
and decided to share it here
just like, many years ago, when a manager where I worked came out to me as bi and I told her this story, and then I blogged it because I don’t have much to say…..
creating content is hard
I was just musing that the day that Epiphany Moment happened, I was riding on the sky train with a silly grin on my face.
A woman asked me why I was so happy.
I said, I just found out that my favorite teacher and I share a birthday.
Oh? what day is it?
January 19, I replied.
THAT’S MY BIRTHDAY TOO! She said.
we shared a laugh and a bench seat for a few stations until she disembarked
however, so much for random chance
that teacher is het and she had a wonderful man as a partner
I enjoyed being friends with them for a while when I was trying to get that roadside memorial documentary funded.
