Today marks 15 years that Keyron and I have been together. It’s been a hell of a ride with its ups and downs along the way but overall it’s been very good.

The first few years were excellent, the middle years a bit difficult but now it seems like things have finally gotten good. I love him more than ever. I’m not one to wax rhapsodic on things like this but Keyron is definitely the one for me. He’s funny, talented, smart and makes me happy. I guess I can’t ask for much more.

The one thing I want for us is to be married here in Rhode Island. Not a ceremony that friends and family attend with non-binding documents, I want full legal recognition of the union.

We seem to be getting nowhere regarding marriage equality in Rhode Island. For some reason Marriage Equality Rhode Island under advice from GLAAD considers the judiciary in the state to be hostile to a potential rights case. If you read about our judicial system you’d find that it is fiercely independent and very much in tune with the constitution of the state as well as the federal constitution.

I plan to testify at the hearings again this year, but this time around I’m going to tell the legislators flat out that their reluctance to pass the legislation WILL lead to it being taken up by the judiciary, same as what happened in Massachusetts.

I did note that the song playing is rather apropos to what I’ve written.

Magnetic Personalities August 17, 2007

I finally figured out what it is about Keyron.He has a very magnetic personality.

A few weeks ago a new friend had brought him salads. Tonight another friend of his dropped off dinner. It’s amazing.

I’ve noted the new class of spam that claims you have e-cards from friends etc. But one that I got was pretty funny, I had an e-card from a worshiper. I wish I had worshipers. Keyron has such a thing else random deliveries of free foodstuff wouldn’t be happening.

But alas, magnetic personalities also attract the mentally unfit and he has a hard time cutting the strings before emotional damage happens, though I think he’s learning.
