Raise your hand if you think May flew by…zoooooooooooom!
From face masks and quarantines to now more unrest and craziness with violence in the world. Sighhh. Everybody please just stay safe, ok?
We stayed at home this weekend (I did ) for the most part save for a couple of short errands. Some much overdue yard work was done and finally some flowers added! I’m so excited 🙂 Now to see if they live.

This week I’m sticking with one of my more dramatic works…Complications. First written in longhand in 1999.
Josh is a family man, a good doctor and a man in love… with his best friend. All is well until Greg discovers how he feels. Sadly, he doesn’t feel the same way.
Heartbroken, Josh finds love elsewhere, with Glenn, a much younger man. They have a whirlwind romance, until one flawed decision threatens to tear them apart forever.
With all the complications in his love life, will this doctor find a cure to mend his broken heart?
“And I can’t stop!” Josh retorted. He turned away again and buried his face in his hands.
Josh took a deep breath and took a drink of his beer. “Look, my path is set. I’m single, and still hung up on my best friend. How can I fight this?”
Greg reached for his hand, and to his surprise, Josh allowed it. “You’ll find a way.”
“Yeah. Sure I will. Single and very alone,” he scoffed.
Greg had no idea what to do right now except to leave. That’s all he wanted to do. But he couldn’t just bolt without having his say.
”How dare you make me feel like any of this is my fault?” Greg shouted.
“You heard me! How dare you say such hurtful things to me! What the fuck right do you have?”
Josh poked his chest. “I’m in love with you! That gives me the right!”
“No it doesn’t!” Greg fired back.
“Look, I’m not apologizing for how I feel. I’ve laid my heart out to you, and you just chucked it aside. Do you have any idea how I’m feeling right now?” Josh turned in frustration.
Greg watched his friend pack up their gear and put it in the trunk. “So this is all my fucking fault? Just because I can’t sleep with you?”
Josh shook his head. “Just leave me alone, Greg.”

Too late. Pandora’s box is open wide. Josh wishes he could take it all back, but it’s too late. Greg is losing his mind and has no idea what to say anymore that won’t set off his best friend. Oyyyy
