me and my bf
The Dapper Rebels of Los Angeles, originally published in LIFE magazine, July 15, 1966.
ooohhh my gOOODDDD
I have watched this at least 15 times since I reblogged this several hours ago
it has been several weeks and I probably have watched this easily 100 times
Months have gone by since the first time I watched this. who would have guessed 6 seconds could impact my life in a way that this has. Over these last few months, I have changed as a person. I have shed my skin and started over anew. I’ve loved and lost, I’ve traveled, I’ve made new friends and lost some old ones along the way. But even through all of that, one thing has always been consistent in my life. It’s this. This has always been here for me. Even before watching it for the first time, I had this feeling as if my life was building up to something great. Some great unknown. That great unknown was this and in the moment of witnessing it for the first time, I knew my life would never be the same.
Not being able to sleep because of the prospect of seeing my boy tomorrow night is dumb. I’m exhausted from helping a friend move and from inventory the previous night. Yet all I feel is an ache because I miss my man and want to run my fingers all over his big ol cranium and kiss him and talk and laugh and cuddle.
I’ve gotta wait until tomorrow at midnight.
And it sucks keeping his identity under wraps. I just want to tell the entire universe how kind and caring and how happy my boy makes me…someday soon.
We have to create our own Images. We have to tell our own stories. No one else is going to do it for us.
