I'll have something more to say soon - once I can determine what it is that I want to say. At this point, suffice to say that I'm gay. I've just posted information concerning my business, Word of Excellence. It is an editing/writing/proofreading business that sprang up in 2007. I have an extensive background in writing and editing. I'd be pleased to correspond with anyone who's interested as we enjoy these latter years. I am located in Connecticut. You can see some of my writing here, as I will be submitting what I hope will be beneficial articles, stories, etc. for my fellow Prime Timers.

By way of introduction, I recognized that I was gay at about age 50, but it's been a struggle to deal with it, as many of you may know. I've only come out to a fairly small circle of friends, and it's still a process for me. I've dated and fallen in love with one man, and I love the romance. I'm 65 now and I am proud to acknowledge my true sexuality.

Coming out isn't easy, as we all know; but at some point we have to take control of ourselves and let others know who we truly are. It's been a struggle for me for a variety of reasons, but I'm proud that I'm gay and glad to say that I finally accepted it.

 

Word of Excellence was established in 2007, primarily as an editing business. Seeing the need for editing in much of what is written, I reached out to those who are in need and provided a service that was timely, accurate and inexpensive. Within a year, my client list had increased markedly and I was most pleased with results. In the latter part of 2008, I added the writing function to the business. Not only am I able to provide written material of my own, but I can provide for my clients well-written, accurate documents that they will be extremely pleased with. Some of that written material appears here on PTWW.
