Not everything can be all about Sebastian, although if he had it his way, it would in fact be all about him.
There are instances where I post a podcast unrelated to the deliciously daring Dr. Brackenridge. Not necessarily funny, but always sincere, I hope the topics I talk about resonate with you. If not, there is always Sebastian to listen to. HE never seems to shut-up. Thanks for listening.
There is a time for jokes and there is a time for reflection. Reflection on what some would term as an unremarkable life. COVID-19 has taken a friend of mine and I mourn for the loss of my dear friend Steve and pray for strength and peace for his wife, Karen, whom he loved so very much.
But I refuse to allow Steve to melt away, one of the many forgotten, becoming just a number, a statistic of those the virus has taken.
I want to share the eulogy I have written for Steve, "Eulogy for the Unremarkable Man." I do this with permission of his wife, Karen. This isn't just a eulogy for Steve. It's a eulogy of those who pass from covid without the hand of their loved one holding theirs.
For the millions worldwide that you might not know, but should. Please take a listen and know Steve. We will not let Steve or others be forgotten. Thank you and stay safe.
The other day I was invited to a book club for fans of my podcast Dr. Sebastian Brackenridge, to not only appear as the eccentric Dr. Sebastian Brackenridge and read from his lecture: A very Brackenridge Christmas Carol, but to also discuss the origins of the deliciously demented Duke of Brackenridge. People were surprised by my answers. You see, Sebastian is the gay man I wish I was allowed to be when I came out. Unapologetically gay. No shame. No hurt. No disappointment, but alas fiction is fiction and life is life. So as part of my giving back to my community I wanted to share my coming out story, which is part of a bigger project I am working on because I know had someone related the story I'm about to tell, it would have made things a little better, less painful and less of a struggle. I hope you enjoy it.
