Fading Away

I feel my interest in blogging on the topics on this blog fading away. I think it is because of the following reasons:

1) Life's demands call me elsewhere.

2) Could it be that I've done all the inner work I needed to do to find resolution to my internal conflicts? I think so.

3) I think gay marriage WILL inevitably be the law of the land in the United States.

4) I truly believe there is important progress being made to more fully integrate Gay LDS members into the body of the church in a more loving way.

5) My desire is to be placed into a calling some time in the future where I can be a peacemaker and or a servant on these matters within the church and my local community. There, I've written it for posterity.

6) There are just certain aspects of "being involved" in an online community that get tiring. This occurs not just in this community but others as well.

7) While I think what I've had to say is important (at least to me), I wonder how much more there really is to say? How much value is there in one single "sexually fluid" female member of the Church's experience? We cannot possibly be monolithic. As far as I know, I'm the only remotely active LDS "both sex attracted" female blogger out who was attempting to parent a coming out teenager, but all the issues surrounding those conflicts are mostly over now.

So, to my special friends (you know who you are I think), have a very Merry Christmas.


  1. I think the important thing in this particular blogging community is not the particular nitch that one occupies but rather that we are all here together. I think that the diversity of experience and belief levels in this community is important.

    I will be sad to see you go, but at the same understand the need to move on. If you choose to not blog anymore though just know that I have appreciated what you have said and appreciated your perspective.

  2. Quiet Song, you know how I feel about you, and your blogging. As Kiley said, I understand if you feel you must go, but I would really rather that you did not. Yet, you have my support in your choices.

    Wishing you a joyful holiday season!

    love and respect, always. Duck

  3. I've concluded that blogs have a life cycle just like people. If you sense yours is nearing its end, I will be sad to see you go, but I will understand. Life's phases change, other demands increase, and I particularly understand how the need to blog may not be as keen once one reaches resolution of certain issues. I've reached that point myself, in fact; I continue to blog but not quite as much, and my posts aren't as angst-ridden as before. But I keep writing, because . . . well, I'm the type that just doesn't shut up anyway.

    I hope you'll keep blogging too, I enjoy reading here. But if you don't, thanks for all you've said, and best wishes.
