Blog Reboot

I originally started this blog a few years ago, as I was just starting to come out (mainly to myself and to my spouse). Then in the press of too much other business I let it go fallow. Now I'm thinking I should revive it for various reasons - I want some way to record the changes in my thinking and feelings as I start to move towards transition, and more importantly I want a platform to explain and articulate things for others, so that I don't find myself answering the same questions over and over again.

This is a complete reboot, a reset to factory setting, as it were. I've removed and archived the old posts - they are really only of interest to me, and have little to do with what I'm thinking, feeling and experiencing these days.

So that's the idea behind what I post here. My plan is to do several posts as they come to me, articulating what's going on, why I'm acting the way I am, and how I got here. Since this will be public, I've decided that I'll mention no one by name. If you know me, you should be able to figure out who I'm talking about, but in general, no one else will be "outed". That may lead to some odd nicknames or initials, but I'll do the best I can.

So if I've directed you here, this is for you. You probably know me well enough to understand that I'm not one to enjoy endlessly rehashing my personal life, but I do want to have a way to tell you as much of my story as you care to read.
