it takes what amounts to a tremendous conceit to write what i’ve written, thinking someone, anyone will actually read the elebendy kabillion words i’ve just posted about my ancient history. the formative period of what has come to be my adult life, which did not start until well into my fourth decade.
looking back on that from here, early in my fifth decade, i can say of all the stories to be told of my years, this is one of the most important. it was hard to write. but it did me a world of good.
and i thank those of you who waded through the whole thing, wholeheartedly, for sharing in my this adventure with me.
