Ok, so I've been having some conflicted feelings lately about my blog. No worries, I'm not going anywhere, I've got too much to say to leave y'all! But I have been feeling rather conflicted about the direction that it may be taking.
Here's where I'm stuck. My blog started as an outlet to my gay life in the conservative south where I was the only homo in my group of straight friends. It's definitely morphed since then, which is a good thing, because it reflects the life that I lead, the passions I have, and the reality of what is happening around me. I've begun to feel conflicted because for a while I have been politically quiet, yet active. If that's not an oxymoron, I don't know what is...what I mean is that I have been active and informed in local politics, but have never been very vocal...until now. I don't know if it's the passing of Prop 8, 102, and 2 that did it....but I won't be quiet anymore. I don't want it to take over my blog, but I feel if I am to give y'all an accurate reflection of my life and who I am, I need to share these things with you, because as you all know, that's how I roll. So, very long winded way of saying...I don't know the direction of this blog, which, I guess is a good thing...right?
Anyhoo, just wanted to share what has been going on in my head and in my heart...thanks for listening (or more accurately reading) to my ramble.
Here is a poem I wrote today after talking with a friend about the revolution we are witnessing and that is taking form around the country.
