100 Words- June 13, 2015

I had something I’ve long known, regarding myself, reconfirmed during yesterday’s outing. Generally, women, straight and gay, respond to me much more warmly than do most men, of any persuasion. I don’t know why this is true, but it always has been obvious to me.

Now and again, the fact of it has bothered me, made we wonder what quality it is I lack, or own, that makes this so. That I never learned the how of the rowdiness of boys my age, seems a factor. I preferred reading and other individual pursuits. My only social gift was intense conversation.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
