If you would have told me 8 years ago back when i was homeless with the warrants for grand theft, duct tape holdin together my glasses and my shoes, back when I used to "shop" in those green clothing donation boxes all night long and then pass out in em with my headlamp still on, back when I would haul 2 car batteries down to the scrap yard in West Oakland in a baby stroller for cash to get high, if you would have told me then, that this non-Christian Gay atheist would get married, have the honor of being a parent, become registered by the state of California as a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern, and then go on to tour through the South with a gospel choir and 300 gorgeous gay men... I would have told you you are out.your.dang.mind. Music is the interpretation, the translation of our lives, in the very exact moment we are living and stretching out towards the sun, and it transcends ideologies and softens jagged divisions. If only the world could replicate what happens in the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir. All over the world there would be room for everyone, room for all of us to call God by all the names, to point our fingers in all the million different directions at one thing: Love

I am blown away by your courage, your generosity, your lovingness and all you've overcome. Your loving and brave spirit shines very bright Renee, and your writing is powerful - write a book?
