I tried starting a blog while I was ECD at Wieden but I got too self-conscious about what I was saying. I never even published it.
I am on my own now and can say anything I want.
Tom Spanbauer came to teach us at 12 a few times and he told us about when he was growing up, a confused young gay man living on a farm in Idaho, he was saved by writing. Someone gave him a journal, a private place where he could say anything he wanted. He wrote on the cover, Things I Know To Be True. It was the beginning of him discovering who he was.
