The Gays of our Lives

(Lindsay, Justin, Michael, Me)


"Like sands through the hourglass...."



Two of my dearest friends, Justin and Michael, came to town to visit last weekend. Michael is a friend from college - we did tons of theatre together over the years at Brandeis. During my senior year, he met Justin, and the two have been a couple ever since. They celebrated nine years together recently, and they are getting married in two weeks!! Though neither of them are Jewish, they have asked me to bless them during the wedding (though I am not officiating at the actual ceremony). I am so honored, and I am still working on what I am going to say. I just hope that I can get through it without crying!! No matter what, I will be sure to report on the wedding shortly thereafter.
In this picture, one of their friends, Luciano, joins Justin in making art. We call this one, "How do I love thee? Let me count the gays...."

In this shot, I was getting ready to complete my grandest aria yet! They inspire me, I tell you.

Hope all is well with you guys!!

My college friends didn't call me PseudoJew for nothing, ya know! Seriously, though, we're so honored to have you play a role and just to be a part of our live. Thank you so much for your blessing! 13 days and counting!

Hey Marci B.

Glad you got a kick out of what
happens to me on a daily basis.

I notice that you live in NY?
What part? I was born on the island
in Glen Cove and moved to TX when
I was 10.

Hugs!
