Not such quiet desperation

So I am at this bookstore, trying to buy In Quiet Desperation. I don't see it, so after some hesitation (big bookstore with lots of people) I decide to ask. The guy I ask looks it up in their system and gets all excited when he finds it. He says: Yes! I found it: In Quiet Desperation - Understanding the ...challenge of...same...gender attraction.... Major slowing down while reading this out loud. And then he looks at me and gives me the biggest smile! I actually think he knew about the challenge. And I had to tell him yes, that's what I'm looking for. So funny I actually forgot to be embarrassed.

They could have ordered it, but I was visiting in another city and it wouldn't have gotten there in time. I'll get a copy some day...

There. I've started writing again. Hopefully this will help me write about the things that are really on my mind at the moment.

Nice to hear from you again. Wondered what happened for a while...

I've been wanting to read that book for some time now too. I just haven't been able to get a copy - not that I couldn't, I just don't know how I could carry it around, or even read it much without someone near me noticing - otherwise I would.

Thanks! Looking at your december 30th post, it looks like we might have experienced some similar feelings over the holidays. Different reasons maybe. Glad you're around.
