12 Year Anniversary + Happy News

Emerging from blog darkness to celebrate not just the fact that I've kept this blog around for 12 years but to also celebrate the bigger news that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down DOMA.

Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…
