From what I can gather, John’s impending church council for apostasy would be either the first or second incidence of a church member receiving discipline for blogging. Right now I am pondering the possible significance of this. For those of you who are LDS, does it concern you that this could set a precedent for future ecclesiastical discipline against blogging? If so, how do you think this might affect online conversations, which up to now have been uncensored by church authorities?

I’m too tired to write a full blogpost tonight, but I just wanted to post this quick pic from today’s Los Angeles adventure with two new friends (one of them was holding the camera for this shot as we rode the train back home).
And….thank you for all of your kindnesses and well-wishes. Three cheers to being ‘open’ to all of life’s pleasures and possibilities, I say! :) I refuse to live my life by fear and I refuse to let others’ choices diminish any of the joy that I feel on my journey.
