After me, and I do mean right after me, Gaetano and Craig became lovers. And right after Gaetano, it was me and Nic. As I mentioned before, we broke up over a cup of coffee but, not quite able to break away, we moved to another apartment together. We had some trouble letting go of the domestic side of things. Nic cured that by moving in a few months later.
This is Craig and Gaetano on a visit to Vancouver. Craig used to live in my present apartment, and he designed and installed the garden here so we still talk every so often. Well, really we talk as much because we are part of the same gay family, drawn tighter despite centrifugal modern life by the tragedies.
