Time Warp Time


For a short period every March, lasting three weeks, my time displacement from family and friends in UK reduces to four hours instead of five. This arises because of changing to daylight saving time on different dates. Even after more than 15 years living here in Tennessee, I still need to go figure what time it probably is in the UK before I pick up the phone  (or Skype!).

Tennessee is a doubly odd place, because I only have to drive 20 miles west, and the time slips back another hour. The time zone cuts an eccentric line right through the middle of the state. In that area, smartphones are permanently confused about the time and my one keeps switching back and forth an hour, times given out on the radio or TV can be an hour out of sync, and things sometimes get a bit surreal!

Apart from that…


…don’t we all run out of ‘fun’ time??! I often feel that I really need this time warp.


IThe first part...The second part...Cover 3 Thumb confess to having meddled with time a little bit in those infamous books of mine (click on covers for better information, or search Amazon for e-versions). The three books cover about three years between them, and then time suddenly accelerates to cover five more years in the last few pages of the third book. All I can say is that it seems to work!

And so now, with no real idea of what the time could be where you are, let me offer the usual diet of additional pictures of fit young men doing what fit young men like to do. If the promotion of fitness bothers you, you are probably not here in the first place, but you might like to take a look at the previous post and offer an opinion on how one should (or should not) approach the promotion of fitness in the gay community. An interesting conundrum raised by a concerned (but much valued) reader. Go see. And now, lets see if we can give a balanced view on things…



That one is rather easy, if you give it a good shot. This next one definitely ISN’T…



And if balance is not your thing, don’t worry. Let’s just hit the gym for a couple of pictures:

There’s a sweaty guy. But if you’d just rather admire the results in others instead of doing it yourself, feel free…

Past your time to make some improvement? NO! It’s never too late to have some fun, doing what you feel you can, just to try and keep in shape. There’s time: there’s always time…

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
