    Summary

    Listening to Elisa brought home to David how much he’s missed the passion that people can have for art and the emotions it can evoke for both the creator and the observers. His gallery was born out of love for that aspect of art – the revelation that his success was funded by his parents didn’t change that fact, even as it cast a dark shadow of self-doubt over his own abilities.

    That same love is part of what drives him forward with the store – the chance to see people’s passion and the artistry and imagination involved in creating their products.

    Between the gallery and the store, he’s an expert, by now, at displaying other people’s art. Creating his own, not so much.

    ***

    Inspired by one of the store's vendors and wanting to stretch himself creatively, David takes up wood burning. Learning something new is never easy - fortunately his friends and family are there for support.

    Summary

    Patrick Brewer has split up with his fiance (again) and decided - to make sure that it sticks - he'll travel half way around the world so that he can figure out his sexuality without worrying about anyone's preconceived notions of who he is and who he should be. He lands a job at one of the most iconic beaches in the world, working as a life guard at the exclusive ocean pool club, Icebergs.

    David has taken some time off at the gallery, to support his boyfriend, Sebastien, while he shoots the secret headliner for the biggest Queer party down-under, Mardi Gras.

    Summary

    Patrick tried loosening up his shoulders, his skin feeling too tight. He stretched his stiff neck and breathed out his mouth, unsettled. He turned towards the register screen, intent on distracting himself with their quarterly taxes. He looked through the report, not registering any of the information. The screen was dirty and the little spots were distracting. He turned, looking for the cloth and cleaner, but the spots in his vision wobbled and followed.
