After losing my wife to cancer in my thirties, life as I knew it changed. I realized all the things I missed out doing because I was always afraid of what people thought. Losing someone you love early in life has a way of helping take stock of reality and what the world perceives as reality.
I am now remarried to an amazing and beautiful woman who happens to also have been a friend of my first wife. We have two amazing boys whom we homeschool and the four of us live life to the fullest. No longer afraid of the big bad “what do people think syndrome”, we live life the way we were created to – As ourselves. In fact, we now coin the phrase, “Anyone who has an opinion is welcome to pay our monthly bills”…and it’s funny because it works! You realize that everyone has an opinion about something, but only you pay your bills, so you don’t give other people’s opinions any weight.
Murray Taylor is just a pseudo name. We have a few websites – Riverstone Naturals, Gluten-free Recipes, Alternative Building Techniques, and World Schooling 101. Using pseudo names helps keep each of our sites high on searches and Google at bay so if someone is looking for body care products we don’t end up getting diluted in the search list. If you want to know more about us or our given names, check out our other sites.
So how does a straight-laced Catholic boy start wearing women’s clothes? Well, after complaining to my wife about how women have so many clothing choices and men have so few, she pushed and asked, “Why can’t men wear skirts?” I honestly didn’t have an answer and thus the journey awkwardly began. It took me the first six months to convince myself that I wasn’t gay and that I wasn’t a cross-dresser. I struggled to look at myself in the mirror but the feeling of wearing a skirt was amazing and that kept me going. Our goal wasn’t for me to look like a woman but to look good as a man and break down gender-based dress codes. Since my first wife’s passing, I’ve become a bit of a crap disturber when it comes to paradigms. What has ensued is a fun and amazing journey as a couple discovering who are true friends are. Come join us on our ride!
