32. I'm so jealous that you are in my favorite terrestrial location.
Look around once for me, JackBeck.

And, yeah, sometimes we lose haters by attrition. What I've grown accustomed to do on these days is to remember my guys who fought them bravely, relentlessly and beautifully. I'd much rather meditate on them:

Andy's anniversary is coming up on the 7th. I love and miss you, Andy.

Thom Gunn, poet and generous teacher of poetry, literature and life. My only regret was that he was gay while I was single. Cheers, my dear friend.

Harvey Milk, transformer of this city. Thank you, Harvey. I can't believe I got to meet you and watch your face. We still and forever miss and love you.
