A few questions, a few answers

Have you ever been arrested?

No. I have, however, committed arrestable offenses, though that's far in the past. Mostly.

Do you still believe in love?

Without a doubt. I'll stop believing in everything else first.

What's your lifestory, all the way to the present?

Tried writing it twice before (again, some time ago). Too long. So here's a thumbnail:
I grew up in rural Iowa and have since lived in Houston, the DC area, and now Seattle. Used to work in higher education and am currently the administrator for my church and a partner in a record label.

God has shown me mercy and grace from the beginning for no reason other than love. There's a war in my past and a war in my future. Used to think I knew what my life would look like; now I have no idea. Tried to be normal for a while, then traded that in for trying to be faithful. It's a good trade but a harder path.

All the things you never talk about.

Believe it or not, they're pretty much all here in my journal, too– just a little harder to see.

Have a question? Ask me here.
