Facing Change
A Video Blog

By Mark S. King

March 16, 2010

I recently made the move from my beloved Atlanta back to Fort Lauderdale, and it's been tough saying goodbye to my friends, my doctor and my support system. And the physical act of moving is hard. I've had to decide what is worth keeping and what to finally give up.

In this video episode, I share the personal reason I chose Fort Lauderdale over Atlanta (it wasn't the weather). And since I never can resist absurdity, something a bit surreal happens along the way. When you're packing alone, you have to converse with something. (Thanks to my set decorators, Jenifer and Bobbin.)

Episode 15: Facing Change

Are you traveling light these days? Are you holding on to old items (and behaviors) that don't fit anymore? What's worth keeping in your life? As always, I love reading your comments (Hello, Drew from Sydney! How's it going, Cowboy Larry! Diana, Jose, Brian, Scotty ...).

In the meantime, my friends, please be well.


p.s. I'm thrilled to announce I will serve as M.C. for the HIV Cruise Retreat this October 23-31. It's a volunteer gig for me and a limited number of partial scholarships are available. Go to to find out more!

Editor's note -- UPDATE, 3/23/10: Due to extremely high response, the scholarship capacity has been reached.
