RIP my past

I read in the NY Times that San Vicente Inn is the latest gay resort to no longer be that.  I took this picture of it in 2002. 

I have many pictures of other places where men were free to be themselves. I've been lucky to have stayd at so many of them because fewer & fewer exist.  it looks like the price paid for assimilation is loss of some elements of our community. hopefully this history isn't being lost as well.  there's a long essay in all this but I'm not really an essayist. I'm simply a man "of a certain age" remembering what it was like to be a young outlaw.

I think you're still an outlaw and have had what seems to be a fascinating and fascinating still, life.

o thank you. it's tough being seen as an outlaw at my age but I'd have it no other way.

& as far as fascinating just wait till someone publishes "Alex in Movieland."
