On Saturday, February 19th I packed up my 2001 Honda Accord tearfully said goodbye for the time being, to my loving wife and dogs and started driving to Los Angeles. It was the hardest goodbye I’ve ever had and I hope things get better from there. I’m going to try to make it in acting. I’m scared, excited, anxious, calm, exhilerated, sad, lost, found. I’m basically everything right now

Going for it is an idea that has been brewing for a long time now. It has been under the surface, slowly rising for awhile, until this past summer when my wife, Michelle, and I started seriously talking about kids, and I realized I needed to go see about this first.

So, we decided. I would do it.

If you’re defined by what you do, I was a donor recruiter for an independent blood center. I was a freelance writer for a magazine. I was an actor, improviser, and late night talk show host.

Now I’m just an aspirer.

The preceding was written when I started my move. On December 6th, I will venture back home to reunite with Michelle. Here is my piece about that. The dream remains.

    I really liked your ’20 things you want to hear a christian say’ post and work with a group i thought maybe you’d like to know about. (maybe not, and that is totally ok! feelings won’t be hurt if you disregard.)
    Spiritual Pride Project is a GLBTQ Spiritual Retreat for youth and young adults in Central Texas. It is the only experience of its kind in the entire south.
    Our mission is to bring together people of all walks of life and stages of spirituality in order to support, hear, celebrate, and share with. Most of the staff identify as Lutheran and some as simply Spiritual, but we are the kind that would share a list of sentiments like yours. Our goal is not to indoctrinate or coerce, but truly to meet youth where their spiritual needs are and support accordingly – especially GLBTQ youth who have been hurt by so-called religious practices.
    On the other hand, we want to make a safe and accountable space for gay and trans Christians as well as folks whose hurt is beyond repair and are looking for different venues for spirituality.
    We’re just trying to catch folks and let them know that we think they are great and deserve to be fulfilled in every aspect of the human experience.

    Check us out! And thanks for posting your thoughts.
