In the TV industry, there's this thing called "Hiatus".

It's a time when you're done producing your season, and everyone takes a a break.

Well, I'm taking a hiatus from this blog and from most of the blogosphere too.

I feel like I'm never going to be able to let go and move on from the LDS church if I keep spending all my time talking about it.

And frankly, I've kind of run out of things to say.

Take care friends.



  1. I think this is very sensible. I dumped most of my Mormon and ex-Mormon friends on facebook, decoupled from most of the religious discussions and am feeling a thousand times better about life. Wasting my time thinking about religion was counterproductive, in most cases, and it really doesn't reflect who I am any longer.

    I wish you good luck on your journey and hope that you'll be back someday. I really enjoy your articles, but understand completely.

  2. I have to say, i've gotten used to reading about your challenges and triumphs here... but I guess we'll just have to call each other more often now! (which is fine with me)

  3. It's good to take a break once in awhile.

  4. I look forward to the next season, Ezra. Meantime keep in touch. "I'm on hiatus" doesn't mean "I'm history."

  5. Good luck my friend. God Bless.

  6. As I sat on your mum's porch in Virginia last June, talking about life, the universe and everything - which subject, of course, included both yourself and my gay daughter whom I love ferociously - I smiled when she shared your "noho moho" sobriquet.

    I've enjoyed your posts, even as a lurker, because they give me a glimpse into a life that my daughter has been reticent to share much about, but which I can only imagine.

    I commend you for your current decision - so many people leave the Church and yet cannot seem to leave it alone. My younger son went a different way for entirely different reasons, and although he is not gay, Prop8 was for him the straw that broke the camel's back.

    I commend you for your sense of personal responsibility on your journey. A dear friend of mine chose to leave this world about 10 years ago, and I never knew why... until I found his memorial on My heart broke for him, imagining the pain he must have been suffering to feel that death was the only way out. I am frightfully glad that you choose instead to live, and to live well.

    Good luck as you move forward. If you should return to the blogosphere, I shall read with interest.
