Me in 1988

To see this picture of me is a reminder of what used to be.

A pure dreamer
Overly optimistic
A person who thought my desires were sinful
A kid who was afraid to be alive
Full of ideas, wishes and innocence
A boy who wanted the same things as other teens
A believer in so many things
A boy who dreamed of kissing another boy
A voracious writer and reader
A boy who knew things will get better

At 14, I didn't know what was coming; but I knew there was more out there. Thank Hera, I made it through to see my dreams come true.

All in all, sounds like a life well-lived! Congratulations on being able to control your own happiness- it certainly is more fulfilling than waiting for someone else to do it!

I'm jealous. You were so handsome and cute at that age (you still are) and had a sense of identity.
