"A little water clears us of this deed...”
I've always loved this song, but when k.d.lang recorded this version, it blew me away.
Washing away the love? Washing away the guilt? Washing away the memories. Washing away the pain.
Only, it is not as simple as that. Far from it.
My gay best friend
My gay best friend is coming to visit this Thursday for a couple of nights. He has HIV. He sees himself as a person with HIV. I see him as a person. No-one knows he has HIV apart from me and one other person he has told. His partner does not know (though he does not put his partner at risk).
Honesty. It's the best policy.
