On flying back yesterday, I rushed off to another screening of the documentary at the Gay Pride Films and Plays: Queer Bits Short Film Festival where I was also the featured speaker!
While I will always miss my love Gregory, and while I am still overwhelmed with grief now and then, I am truly feeling much better, enjoying life, continuing with projects laid to rest during Gregory's difficult times, and being able to remember the good times more than the difficult ones!
I have found that the need to BLOG and the need to write POETRY has diminished as Gregory has moved to a "better place" and as I have been feeling better as well. The urge to write is less with a sun shiny silver lining when compared to a dark, stormy sky.
Eventually I will re-commit to the manuscript about Gregory and my journey with Alzheimer's and other projects like promoting the documentary "ALZHEIMER'S: A Love Story," "Michael's Flea Circus," the possibility of growing "Michael's Museum: A Curious Collection of Tiny Treasures - A Permanent Exhibit at Chicago Children's Museum on Navy Pier," and my latest fantasy project: "ALZHEIMER's: A Love Story Musical."
