Steve Writes in (Harvard) Gay & Lesbian Review.

I was speaking with Ed Decker up in San Francisco about doing some kind of benefit for the New Conservatory Theatre Center later this year, when he mentioned that he had seen me in the Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide (formerly, the Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review), a prestigious bimonthly.

Am I gettin' to be a big shot or what?

They didn't put what I wrote online, since this is a subscription magazine, but it does list my name on the home page.

Basically, it's an essay about why I blog. I discuss how the simple act of putting the condition of my health -- a completely new idea at the time -- led to all the little and big miracles that followed, all the way from meeting gay parents and kids to having two hit shows off-Broadway to speaking at Harvard University to playing John Lennon's piano to having a huge musical piece about war and violence at Davies Symphony Hall.

I guess I do lead a charmed life in so many ways. Anyway, you can get this publication at higher end book stores and magazine stands, as well as ordering it online.

That's about as good as being a rock star.

Congrats on the recognition!

Anyway, your profile lists songwriting as one of your interests. I invite you to check out Just A Song, my blog about songs and songwriters. I hope to see you there.

BTW, where is Buna? I grew up in Kingsville, near Corpus Christi in South Texas.

K, what a terrific blog you have. I'll definitely link to you soon.

Buna is east of Corpus Christi down near the Gulf Coast about 30 miles north of Beaumont.
