Honesty

In light of my previous blog, I may not be good at this yet not because I don't have anything to say, but because I simply don't say it.  Rocket science, I know.  The reasoning is probably based in fear.

I've done my best to keep this blog anonymous, so that my true identity is not revealed.  Not that anyone (or many people) will even care.  The fact of the matter is I don't want to be ostracized from our "community" of friends and acquaintances.  Myself, I would be fine, but this community is important to my family, and having friends is important too.  When I'm too honest, I tend to offend people and put my foot in my mouth.

My wife is aware of this blog, and I think her eyes roll every time I speak about it.  Just another crazy fad od mine, which will soon pass.

There is some danger involved should I venture to be too truthful...both with regard to the relationship with my wife (are you reading this?) and also do to the fact that she is a teacher at a Christian school.  Our child is a student at the school as well.  It could be dangerous should anyone from the school (or church) stumble upon a blog where I'm honest about my changing beliefs surrounding the religion I've held for most of my life.
