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.

21 Things I like

Damien writes 2 Shoes & A Broom out in Kansas City and earlier this week he published a list 21 things that he likes. He asked me if I would compile a similar list and his request made me think of my mother who would routinely ask us at the dinner table to name three positive things that had happened to us that day. So this post is in response to Damien’s request and in tribute of my Mom.

Whore Family1 – Sergio, family and friends: This group of people deserve a far stronger sentiment but like will have to do for the sake of this post.

2 – Holidays: I like any excuse to get together with friends or family and the fact that the office is usually closed on these days is a bonus.

3 – Chocolate: The darker the chocolate the greater my addiction.

Travel, Sydney4 – Travel: I’m always planning the next trip.

5 – Live theater: Plays and musicals tug at my heart strings, make me laugh unexpectedly and entertain me in a way that movies cannot.

6 – Ancient history: I can’t explain it, but I always end up  watching documentaries about Ancient Egypt, Babylon, Greece, Rome, etc…

kissing7 – Kissing: As a young child no activity grossed me out more and as an adult it is how I like to start and end every day.

8 – Fridays: I feel like this is self-explanatory.

9 – Sense of Humor: I tend to be sarcastic and snarky, and I am at a total loss when I meet someone who lacks one.

Entering-Provincetown10 – Provincetown: Just a two hour drive or 90-minute high-speed ferry ride from Boston, this is one of my favorite places anywhere in the world.

11 – Red Sox: I will always love the Red Sox – always.

12 – Pizza: I could eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner 7-days a week.

Caption this photo13 – Summer: Perhaps Boston’s most fleeting season it is still my favorite.

14 – Reading: Probably my favorite past time and way to escape reality. My favorite genres are mysteries, espionage, historical fiction and fantasy.

15 – Madonna: The obsession started in grade school and continues to this day although I no longer annoy friends by speaking in Madonna lyrics (thank god).

marriage equality16 – Obama: This year’s election has driven home how much I am going to miss this man who was the first sitting President to champion LGBT Rights.

17 – Poetry: If you read this blog regularly you will know that I have an abiding love of poetry.

18 – Flowers: A little known fact about me – I buy fresh cut flowers for my house almost every week.

Sexy Guy19 -Hairy chests: I probably watched Magnum P.I. at an impressionable age, and readers of this blog are likely familiar with my weekly Furry Friday posts.

20 – Coffee: I like it so much that I have a weekly post each Saturday morning of men drinking a cup of joe.

21 – My Blog: What started as an experiment in in the fall of 2007 has turned into an incredibly rewarding hobby that has introduced me to interesting people both near and far – so to Damien who challenged me to this post and those of you who I’ve had the opportunity to meet, thank you.
