Back to school. It was so good being home on the Cape these past nine days
or so. Good to away from classes and routine; just plain good to be with family: we had fun. And most especially good being with Peter.

We made time to be together and we talked about "matters of consequence". There were a couple of issues. . .one, really. . Peter and me..where we needed to talk things out, honest and simple. And so we did!
We made the time to listen with the ears of the heart. . . .to speak our truth with love.

One day we took a boat out, along the long the 'hand' to the end which is called Long Point. As we looked across the harbor at Provincetown we talked and let thinks sink in. . . .and realized, again, where there is love there is always an answer.

Again, "life is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to be lived". . .that a mystery - and is there any greater mystery than two guys loving each other? - gradually unfolds and reveals the beauty within. . . . and the unfolding takes time, patience, humor, work. . . and a willingness to wait for one another. . .

Thanksgiving this year had a new dimension to it for us. . .Peter and Justin.
God, I am grateful!

And I wanted to tell you this.

Hey Justin =) Uhm I'm kinda new here, but I know Gary Kelly and found this site by Theuglyducklingproject :) Which is an awesome project btw!

So many things I could say in response to that post. None of them would do it justice.

I like your style.
You are a good person Justin.

Life is not a problem to be solved but a mystery to be lived.

So what's the difference between a problem to be solved and "issues" that need to be "talked out"?

And if life is a mystery to be lived, why do we place so much emphasis on demystifying our future by making plans and organizing things such as a career path?

Just wondering. :)

Sounds pretty serious. Does the mystery problem involve someone's relocation?

It is so nice to see a young person with such a good outlook.
You are going to have a wonderful life with a loving attitude like that. It's great you could work through lifes issues with Peter.

Hi Justin,

You have a great blog. Question for you-- Is it possible to be in love with someone and not have any sexual feelings for them? Thanks.
