For those of you who celebrate Easter in one way or another, I want to wish you a Happy Easter and to enjoy a good long weekend. For the many people in Canada and the Northern States who are suffering under this constant snow assault, just hang in there we are getting closer to a real spring..... I hope! Easter with the message of renewal, hope, life awakening and returning from the death of sin or winter, depending on your belief system, is a good time to reflect, pray, worship. I always see spring as a new beginning, to me it is the New Year.
Dave and I have decided to go away together for the weekend, we are going to a larger city with a better gay night-life, heck they even have a gay day-life! I'll try to get pictures and put them up. I am actually quite excited about this, going with another gay person to take in some gay culture. It is so nice not to have to go through things like this alone anymore. That is one of the really cool things about Dave, not only is he my boyfriend, he is also a really good friend. We are both easy going people, so if one of us points out a hot stud, the other is comfortable enough to say 'yeah he is a hot stud' and it is just left at that, we both know it has no other meaning. I always believed that would be important in a relationship, lovers but best friends as well. This will also be another mile stone for me, first time going away on a trip together. I have mostly travelled alone before or with family but never with a boyfriend. My first and only other boyfriend and I hardly had time to see each other in the first place, let alone getting to go away together. Sometimes it is hard for me to be in a relationship after being alone for so long, I often find that I need my 'down time' or 'alone time' to recharge, if that makes sense. Dave understands and has no problem with it, as I said before he is down to earth and we can work through most things so far. I am getting use to the idea of being part of a couple however, and I find that I can't be away from him too long. If I don't see him for a few days I quickly become on edge, lonely and feeling down at the same time. I am part of a couple now and it catches my breath so many times, while on this path of life, that I can look back and see I am no longer walking alone, that with a big smile on his face, someone is walking on my path as well now.
