I sit in the window, after a long night of bartending and breakfast, and watch fog roll in from the harbor. The once clear dawn sky is now gone. I have to wonder what the day brings, well after I get some sleep that is.
A few days ago I suddenly realized I had been here in the Village for six months now. This all got lost in the hectic couple of weeks I had. It seems to have been the quickest six months of my life. At the same time I have now know my one friend for two years. That thought always brings a smile to my face. Maybe they haven’t been the quickest two years of my life but they have been eventful.
But after six months I seem to have more to decide than I ever did. This may be my last weekend of bartending, at least ‘full time’ bartending. I still have to decide whether to stay here or go back to the mountains, to Penn State. But now another, admittedly fun, option clouds that decision. I can't do both so deciding to go with this new opportunity basically decides it all. Plans, ideas, thoughts, none are very clear at the moment. Not that they ever are with me.
A week from today I head to the beach house in Stone Harbor for a week’s stay. Hopefully a bit of shore stress relief is in order. Maybe that will clear my head and I can come to some decisions.
But whatever I decide this strange journey continues.

FYI – This week the ‘Queer/Art/Film’ moves to the IFC Center just blocks away from here. I think I’m going to have to check this out.
