Yes indeed. In the real world, in the gay world, in the blogging community, including the primarily LDS “bloggernacle,” on the boards for home theater, musical theater, movies and other arts communities, in design and graphics, photography, writing, and games, even in computer geekdom, I fly around unseen, unknown, alone. I am now and for the foreseeable future, The Invisible Man (TIM, for short).
Stay-at-home Moms with darling kids and their problems, single women who are blog-dating, lawyers who speak only legalese, pious scripture-quoters, serious scholars, and anybody straight and married, seems to have licked the invisibility problem.
It isn’t all bad. The web has given me a new kind of community (though a new cloak of anonymity too) and a new daily activity, writing. I’ve got an “issue” to energize me into activism of a sort: legalization of gay marriage and its political ramifications. I will be writing about this from time to time.
I’ve got interests in music, theater, musical theater and home theater, and movies; these will all be written about from time to time. I’m not a writer, per se, but I am/was a big reader, and I’ll keep you all up-to-date with my reading.
Finally, since I’m unemployed, I’m forced to sell my New York apartment before I run out of money completely, so the next few months should be eventful for The Invisible Man (TIM, for short) and I think an online journal, this blog, is a good way to do self-analysis.
And I will play around with the graphics of the blog, changing them as often as every day. I spent 15 years working at a design firm, churning out printed material, and though I was glad to give that up, I miss a rigorous typesetting session, so I’ll see if I can get that across in this blog.
Anything else? Ok, go.
