My 52nd Birthday…

As I turned 52 tonight I couldn’t help but think about what I really wanted for my birthday and it hit me — Unconditional love and friendship.  As I had dinner at a lovely restaurant with two friends, Dave and Pam, I realized that my birthday wish had come true. These are not just friends, but life-long friends, dear friends.  We have survived Dave’s cancer and a multitude of other difficult issues together.  We have traveled the country together, loved together and cried together.  Dave’s sister recently married her wife in San Francisco.  One of Pam’s two wonderful sons is gay.  Our server tonight just so happened to be a wonderfully sweet lesbian woman who overheard our conversation and thankfully joined in.  And me, I’m passionate about making the world a more sex positive place and creating equality for sexual minorities.  It was a love fest!  What more could a sex therapist want?  We had one of those rare and deep conversations that goes beyond small talk. It was about being real.  I wouldn’t trade tonight for a winning lotto ticket.  All I can say is thank you my friends and happy birthday to capricorns everywhere.  www.doctorcannon.com
