Closing time

I am in Quito with the rest of my Peace Corps group, minus the twenty people who went home early, dealing with administrative details, benefits, career planning. Everything is planning their next steps, grad school, roommates, extensions, backpacking. I find it all very endearing, really.

Go Lutherans and California

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has approved a new policy of allowing gay and lesbian pastors in committed relationships to continue in their ministries. This came over the wire to me in Ecuador and I was like, that is MY church.

And of course the big decision in California is incredibly exciting.

Things that happened since the last time I wrote

I saw ManĂ¡ in concert; I helped plan and execute a five night gay and lesbian film festival; I gave a taller on female sexuality in which everyone cracked up because in the middle of it I took off my sweater, as if I was getting well, warm; I was the fifth wheel on an otherwise lovely beach trip; I ran by the river a bunch of times; I had a job interview in New York. I mean, I had a job interview with someone in New York through Skype. I was in Cuenca.
