Telling My Story Everywhere I Can

Believe it or not, I am in Los Angeles today (photo of view from my room above). I left cold and snowy New York early this morning and now I am in sunny West Hollywood. I am here for two days (more about that in a future post), but basically I have another opportunity to tell my story. I am really thrilled. I will also have dinner tomorrow tonight with Steven Fales, the creator of the one-person play, Confessions of a Mormon Boy which is currently running out here in Los Angeles.

Hopefully I will get to see Joe G, Daniel Gonzales and Eric too before I head back to New York tomorrow night.(Check out Daniel's latest video expose).

Mara Schiavocampo who produces short films for Current TV, recently filmed me in NYC telling my story. She splices my story with black and white scenes from my play as well as an interview with John Smid of Love in Action. (See below). You can vote for this piece to air on the channel and not just the web site.

So crazy! Can't turn on the tv anymore without running into a feature about you.

Careful, you might get overexposed, like Britney... ;-)

Also, while you might not think of it as ministry, you do end up ministering to many people.

I don't think there is such a thing like overexposure .. overexposiong .. to much attention :) when it comes to Peterson. And I agree with Tom, he does minister, but in a very very good way.

...and besides, if he shaved his head, we'd still love him. =)

And if you get overexposed.. Remember that country far far away wich no one takes notice of anyway.. You're welcome.

actually the shaved head thing, I started that. Of course it never got in all the papers, but I shaved it off long ago.

So glad I have that country I can always go to when this should my own wear me out.

Lovely picture you took out the window, Peterson. Just lovely.

I heard this saying from an older teacher today: "Keep on kickin', tiger". And so, I pass it on to you. Even though you probably don't need that sort of encouragement.

"stuffing and stuffing and stuffing...and sometimes it tends to pop out..."

Oh, the images this invokes.

Does it ever get boring to say over and over again, "I became a born-again Christian when I was 17"? :)

I noticed it has rained much of the time since you arrived. Hmm.

You're a star, baby! (Inspired by your profile, incidentally why does it say you are 251 years old?)

And you just have to stop saying things that resonate with me. I mean, I might think it's okay to be who I am and we can't have that now can we? ;-)

Cheering you on from the sidelines.

Keep telling. I am listening, and learning to tell my own truths.

Thank you so much.
