Step by step, grace


Grace continues to be showered upon me.  It is beyond what I might have imagined.  My entire board has expressed complete, total support.  Unwavering.  I thought surely there would be some who balked or had serious questions or reservations.  But no.

Caution:  there are two board members not there.  One I think will be supportive, the other, I ain't so sure.  But so far . . . . .

Many thanks to all for your support.  One sad, sad result of my being more publicly out, the blog may have to go.  Ironic, isn't it.  I'm still pondering that.  Maybe I'll appear anew.

Slowly, by steps, carefully.

I'm glad it is working out for you! Hopefully the blog can stay as a means to express your anxiety.

Neil said...

As I said many times, I'm proud of you and proud to be your friend.
I think your readers won't let you cancel the blog. You're too popular.

Reading your news made me more hopeful for all of us. Always wishing the best for you!

I'm glad things are going well with this.

It's nice to know that being gay doesn't carry the stigma it used to. For the most part, it is like having blue eyes.

This is why gay marriage is inevitable.

Wishing you all the best,

Eric

Perhaps it is time for a new blog to reflect the new life: facing forward.

Tobey said...

Ok I like Birdie's idea....if you are going to close this blog then a new one to represent your "open" life is a must! We have to feed our blog hunger you know...and yours is one of the best!

I cannot help but think that part of the support comes from the fact that your board has witnessed you as a person and has grown to appreciate you work among them. They know who you are and they understand that this revelation of another facet does not really change who you are.

I hope you keep blogging. I'd like to hear more of how this all works out for you.

You need to so what is best for you but if you have to give up this blog I hope you return in some other form.

Great to know that everything seems to work out. Please stop blogging since I just start to read yours!

After all the gad damned drama, you may have to shut down the blog? Was that an order or a compromise?

Just because you are out doesn't mean you have to go silent on the internet. Do what you have to do but never compromise on certain things like self expression and writing.

Let us know if you set up shop somewhere else.

Toasted Person:

This is the one place where I am possibly allowed, and definitely glad, to say, "I told you so."

The Naz always hits the mark.

Enjoy living in truth, "Joe," and know that we are all rooting for you. Someday, when I head south, I look forward to getting together and seeing/hearing how it's all gone.

Till then, live well.

perhaps this blog has to go, but then you will start a new one, to herald the next chapter.
