I remember, from my days as an active Christian, a little statue I had. It was more of a figurine, really. It had a head and arm coming out of a boulder and the caption on the base read, "Please be patient, God is not finished with me yet." And that I ask here, please be patient, I am not finished with this blog yet. I don't know where it is going, or even how often I will be posting.
I considered a few titles for it, but many were already taken; I thought of "Ramblings, Rants and Raves of a former Mormon, ex-Baptist, Currently gay teacher" but I thought it was too long, and the "Currently gay" part implied being gay was a choice. Which I don't believe it is, but I do believe a choice is involved, and the choice is to open the closet door or not. (I opened a big closet door this year, but that is another whole story for another post.) Plus, with the 'former' and 'ex-' in there it appeared I was very fickle about things that I would be moving on to something else later. Or at least I was on some sort of journey of self-discovery, which of course we all are, anyway. (I guess the 'rambling' part is true.)
I thought of using my favorite colors, purple and black, in the title, but couldn't come up with a combination I liked; I don't have any books coming out soon, so some type of "Book News" was not appropriate; I am not current on pop culture trends (I thought the Scissor Sisters were the younger siblings of Twisted Sister) and my jury is still out on Adam Lambert, though I will admit he has beautiful blue eyes (with or without all the liner), and a nice smile.
In the end, for now, I have decided just to use my name. It's simple, and direct. Unlike me.
