Ramblings from the Base of the Rocky Mountains


Who I am...easier said than done. My name is John, and I'm a 37-year-old partnered gay man living just outside of Denver, Colorado, where I've been since September of 2001. This move has been nothing short of a fresh start in my life, and a homecoming of sorts (even though I've never lived here before). The intention of this journal is to capture the day-to-day thoughts that roll through my head, as well as act as a type of therapy for me, since I handle issues in my life much better when I verbalize them. So consider yourself shrink-for-a-day, and analyze away!

update June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
