I love to see a man smile. It's such a turn-on. I have a close friend who every day I have the supreme fortune to get to see his smile. It doesn't matter what kind of mood he's in or how he's feeling, I get to see his smile. It's one of the great joys of my life. I don't always have many, but this week has been an exception. On Monday, I wrote a post about being in the closet, because it was something on my mind. On Tuesday, I elaborated on my situation for those who might not have understood. It never occurred to me that I would get such a response out of those posts. Not only did I receive quite a number of comments, but email after email has come in offering love, compassion, and support. (I'm still trying to answer all of them.) Each one of those emails has made me smile, not something I find myself doing often enough these days. People have said that they just felt the need to reach out, and for that I will be eternally grateful.
