palimpsest


έχω σταματήσει εδώ και χρόνια να αγοράζω i-d. καμιά δεκαριά. ξεφυλλίζοντας την ειδική έκδοσή του με τίτλο safe & sound ήταν από τις λίγες φορές που ζήλεψα έντυπο τα τελευταία χρόνια. εξαιρετικά κείμενα. απλά, αληθινά, όπως αυτό:
i was prepared for the worst when i told my mom. she just wept. well, actually, the very first time i told her she was so shocked we didn't speak about it for another four years. it was horrible, i felt very let down and i wanted her to accept me. i brought it up again when i had someone very significant in my life and that's when she wept; she completely broke down. it was completely alien to her. but it was never going to be something that she got used to overnight and it has taken time.
she wept i think because she was disappointed, she was grieving for the things she wanted for me: marriage and babies. she didn't understand how i could be attracted to someone of the same sex. but it has forgotten so much better -i think she just needed time to get used to it, and she has, which has made me so much happier.
