"This blog is degenerating into the mundane. Perhaps the crisis in your life has passed".
While I take some issue with the word, "degenerating" I think Mr. Anonymous is correct in assessing the crisis in my life is over. Or at least the worst of it. I don't, however, think that my story is over.
When I read that comment, it actually played into a thought I had before. Now that K and I have resolved our situation, is there really anything else to write about? Now that T and I are secure in our relationship, is there anything left to talk about?
After thinking on it for a while today, I think that do have more to say. Even though that I am moving into a new chapter in my life, I think there is more. I still need a place to write down and share my thoughts.
On Monday, K and I will no longer be married. On December 10, K and AJ will get married. T and I are going to the wedding with my kids. That is enough stuff to write about for the next month. After that, I am still a gay dad that is getting find my place in the gay world, and the rest of the world.
That is the next chapter in my life. That will be the next chapter in my blogging. I need to write about it. I need to talk about it. I have always said that I write only for myself anyway. I do it so I can sort out my thoughts and explore my feelings. If people actually ready what I write, that's great. I know that I have helped some people by telling my story. If I am able to continue to help, so much the better.
I am gay man in his 40's who was married for 18 years to a straight woman, who is still my very best friend. We have 4 children together. She is now remarried and we still want to be supportive of each other and make a stable family for our kids.
