Lo ...



She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Delores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita. Light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta.

"My car is limping, Delores Haze,
And the last long lap is the hardest,
And I shall be dumped where the weed decays,
And the rest is rust and stardust."

Hey Buddy. Just dropping this little message in here as it's the first post available on your blog. It was good to get your call last night. Anyway, I was thinking over our conversation and felt compelled to drop by and say this.....

When god created a mould for man he made Adam.

When god created a mould for the old fashioned old school butch, he used you. You are the epitome of a dying breed - butch and what it means to be butch, with a respect for women I have never seen before. Like you I've been around for a while. I'm 65 so I'm up on you a fair ways and I've been around all walks of life - and YOU keep it alive buddy. There's a lot of butches and bois running around calling themselves old school and old fashioned and I've seen plenty of it through the decades in and out of the scene, but honestly they don't come anywhere close to you and your character.

Authenticity is my word for you.

You're a straight shooter and don't go changing for anyone.

Peace friend
