Survivors

Aging with HIV: A Gay Man’s Guide offers a ten-step guide to optimal aging.  The tenth step is Play. “The ability to play is probably one of the most influential factors in development across the lifespan.”  Through play we developed new skills, established friendships, learned to handle defeats and victories, and shaped our growing minds.  We can still grow through play as we age: increase our social networks, express creativity, challenge ourselves mentally and physically, and continue to learn new skills.

Well, I decided to take my own advice.  I wrote a play.  About life, and love and being a survivor. It’s called Survivors and it’s having a staged reading on Monday October 16th at 7pm at the Bernie Wohl Center in Manhattan.  This has been a learning process for me and the reading is an opportunity to learn more by presenting the work in front of an audience.  If you’d like to join in the fun go to the eventbrite page.
