Well, I’ve probably done enough self-promotion on this blog over the last year to last several lifetimes for other bloggers. So I figure it’s time to spread the love.
Seriously, though folks. This shout-out goes to a new blogger on the scene who is going to make a serious difference in the world. I don’t know if anyone will ever give a sh$% about my Dance Robot series or my rambling about filmmaking, but regardless of who is giving a sh$% about what, Ryan Trimble’s writings matter. Why? Because they are about true life. Whose life? His own.
As I mentioned in a comment on his blog post, it takes a huge pair of cajones to man up and be as honest and authentic about his life as Ryan has.
Although the closest I ever got to drug addiction was binging on Domino’s Pizza every Saturday, I know that if I had been through what Ryan has been through, I don’t know that I’d have what it takes to come public about it.
True men are defined by not by acts of machismo, but by acts of courage. And I have rarely ever seen an act of courage like Ryan’s.
I feel like I have learned more about life by reading Ryan’s post. So please, take a couple minutes and check out what he has to say. It has the power to change your life if you let it.

By the way, Ryan and I happened to go to high school together. Orem High ’95. Tigers all the way, baby.
