Pinned toot

(wrote a long and thoughtful intro, and oops lost it...) So, short version:
—composer/arranger/producer/creative divergent
—FT church music ministry, PT college prof & piano gigs
—OCD survivor
—b. early 1980s
—journey includes ~wide~ range of Christian faith communities. Used to think I had answers...then learned/deconstructed enough to realize how much I *don't* know, and now I'm listening to wider range of truth
—life's work quickly morphing into: justice & welcome for the other

Gender dysphoria, church, hope 

On Monday I’m going to do something way outside of anything I would normally do, something some people would call “crazy:” I’m going to get on a plane outside Washington DC (with my fave person in the world) and fly to LA to see the final Gungor show. I am so stoked to be in the same room with some of my favorite artists and human beings (@mike, @vishnu, @Lisagungor, The Brilliance, Propaganda) and hopefully a bunch of Liturgists folk! Who else is going to the El Rey?? 🔥🧡

Just watched the last few episodes of and I do not know what to do with the feelings I’m having and how strongly they interact with my feelings about my real and actual life. I haven’t cried this much in a long time.

Finally heeding everyone’s advice &watching , and having made it to season 4 ...I am amazed about how it has gotten so sweet and genuine at times, and I’m so invested now. And the craft ...The two-part episode “Money” is IMHO a gesamtkunstwerk, a virtuosically choreographed and ultimately satisfying mini-epic! As a composer, I’ve always wanted to collaborate on something so unified and yet so surprising, which pulls together all these disciplines (sound, acting, movement, editing, etc)

In the past, when today's news broke regarding the governor of Virginia (my current home state), I probably would have said something about it on Facebook. This time, I'm on here instead and it's helping me resist posting something strongly-worded but perhaps premature.

🌒🌔 Hey y'all! If you're like me and have trouble *not* using your laptop at night (when you know the light is going to mess with your , even if you turn on Night Shift)... you might find this helpful. I've tried a few extensions and this one has by far been the best at rendering webpages (even Gmail) in ways that are still usable. Plus the little Vader icon is adorable. darkreader.org/

(Also, thanks to those who designed with native dark backgrounds!)

I’m so bowled over reading these earnest that I don’t think I can even write one tonight... does that mean I’m a particular enneagram??? (Still need to re-take more detailed quiz and figure that out...) for now, I’ll just say I’m a socially-anxious introvert who nonetheless loves people and has learned to be outgoing out of necessity and a long journey of mental health growth. Love to you all.
