Joel Zuckerman, 63: Gratitude

Clayton Crawley, 59: Embracing the Unknown

Clayton has come a long way from his rural background in deep Georgia while still embodying the easy, practical life skills he learned from his farm days. Married, gay, an ordained Episcopal minister, New Yorker, design enthusiast, and tech worker, he is far from his childhood, but his calm...

Yikes! What Happened? Am I Really Sick?
