BROKEBACK HAUNTING


I've been out of town on a business trip and have had a lot of time to reflect -- away from everything on the home front. In my mood of reflection, I finally saw Brokeback Mountain. I know I'm slow at getting around to things, but when you are as closeted as I am, things take time and need to be done at the right time and place. In my situation, I can't run off to see the hottest movie in town when it is R-rated or gay-themed. It just doesn't work.

Now I'm full of regrets. I know it's just a movie, but...

I wish I had never seen it!

Ever since, I've been haunted by deep feelings that I had neatly put away in my past, a lot of hurt, a lot of pain.

More later...

Problem is, you neatly put at least some of those things away in the wrong place. Now you've got to take everything out again, give 'em a good shake, re-fold them, and decide where you're going to place them now.

Yes, but isn't a reorganized closet still a closet?

Dave Walter said...

Yes. So best to take them outside in the bright sunlight and fresh air.

Yes, but taking 'em out into the bright sunlight from complete darkness may result in sunburn!
