My pen name is Sam Weller.  Sam Weller is a favorite character of mine from the Charles Dickens book, The Pickwick Papers.  The picture of Sam Weller below reminds me of a hot english dandy so I have selected it as my blog picture.

Who am I?  I’m a gay man. Over three and a half years ago I separated from my marriage (to a woman) after 20+ years.  We have a one son who is at college.  I began coming out over five and a half years ago and am now fully out to family, friends and work.

I’m 59 and trying to make sense of my new life.  It’s an interesting wonderful powerful time.  I love my new life and exploring life as an out gay man.  I am enjoying all aspects of gay life: dating; having a boyfriend; getting involved in gan causes and LGBT non profit work; coming out at work, and having a fantastic new life.

My blog is my journey from first coming out to my wife to the last few wonderful years.  And what an incredible journey it has been.
