Joe Monroe remembers a comment from a visitor who once viewed his whimsical paintings, populated with flying dogs and other wacky characters. "You really like your childhood," the visitor said. "You must not want to grow up." No doubt about it. Monroe, 34, likes to play on canvas. At the same time, though, his actions and concerns have an unmistakably adult focus and fullness of purpose. An HIV-positive diagnosis can be a very maturing influence.

Miss Kitty flies down a hallway, skids around a corner, ricochets off a wall and vaults into the men's restroom, eluding the redhead with the Russian-French accent who beckons: "My boo-boo, my mooshky, come here, my dahling."
