For Mature Gay Men and their Friends

The Column from The Chair

 

Happy November!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Gratitude is always in order as all of us have things to be thankful for and most of us have many blessings.  To pursue a life of trouble–free and care–free living is like chasing the wind and will only lead to an unhappy life of illusion.  Many folks spend their lives dreaming in a haunted sleep.  Life is a wide boulevard that becomes a narrow path for most of us.  Despite this, the present and future hold out promises waiting for us. 

 

While a dark cloud settled in over much of our nation a year ago, we are still here strong and free, living our quiet personal resistance every day.  Folks live through much worse conditions all over the world and have suffered far more in our past. We must show an affirming flame of light and a remembrance that today’s sources of pain are only a temporary interlude. 

 

As a Unitarian–Universalist hymn puts it, “the rafters will withstand the battering of the storm.  May the roar and rain go by this hearth, though all the world grows chill, will keep us warm and ‘though these sheltering walls are thin, may they be strong to keep hate out and hold love in.”

Please join in with all our Prime Timers activities this month and also those of Mature Friends and of the many GLBT seniors groups throughout King County.

Be sure to vote!  We have several very qualified GLBT candidates running . Have a wonderful beginning to the winter holiday season.  And remember to get outside in the fantastic November autumn color.
