Becoming Wilkinson

WILKINSON

This is a story of my journey from married man with three sons, involved in ministry in the NW, to my current life as a gay man in Palm Springs, CA. I weave in interesting interviews with amazing people whom I've met along the way. Life is fascinating, it's a gift and it's always leading me down new roads to explore! It's stunning for me to look back on my adult life and to see the changes that have taken place- from a closed minded, judgmental, very unhappy man to the energized, open minded, hopeful, loving man I am becoming today. The Universe always continues to send me just the right people at just the right time to open up a new door in my mind. I've learned so much from these souls. Join me as I have conversations with these fascinating people and share this journey with you.
