'49. Makes me sixty+. Sort of pleased and amazed I'm still here. An early product of SoCal culture. Chased fun, not profit. You make your choices, accept the trade-offs, right? Self-taught. Worked hard. Carpenter, house painter, artist, husband, parent. Modern world at odds with inner sense of direction. Can the two be reconciled? Working at it.

Don't feel afraid of anything.
Through life just freely roam.
The world belongs to all of us -
So make yourself at home.
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
For life is but a dream . . .
