Nothing Gold Can Stay

Each October I post this poem on my blog. It is one of my favorite poems of all time and is by the famous 20th century New England poet, Robert Frost, and is entitled, Nothing gold can stay.

It is obvious that Frost was inspired by the fall foliage in New England when he wrote this poem back in 1923.

Nature’s first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Gay and bisexual men make up the majority of new syphilis cases

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but a new report from the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds that rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis have increased for a second year in a row to all-time highs, and unfortunately,  gay and bisexual men make up the majority of syphilis cases.Safe SexWhile STDs are preventable with safer sex measures and generally curable with antibiotics, the most alarming piece of news may be that the CDC says that antibiotic resistant STDs are becoming more prevalent.

You can read all about that from the World Health Organization which published their findings earlier this summer, Growing antibiotic resistance forces updates to recommended treatment for sexually transmitted infections.

Autumn in New England

New England foliage, SlobodanAlthough I’m always sad to say good bye to summer, the autumn in New England is really quite spectacular.

My friend Slobodan (shown above) posted these beautiful photos on his facebook page and was nice enough to let me share them. The pictures were taken this week in Maine.  For those of you who have visited northern New England in the fall you know just how vibrant these colors and landscapes are. New England foliageNew England foliageNew England foliage, fall foliageNew England foliage, fall foliageNew England foliage, fall foliageThank you Slobodan for sharing your beautiful photographs.
