Sitting here writing this I am not sure where to start or where to end. I cannot imagine trying to squeeze my life, my accomplishments or my failures into nicely organized paragraphs. The truth is now I look back and realize I have led many lives during this one.
I am old now, not so old that I am ready to go, but old enough to see how much everything has changed – when I was born man had not been to the moon, TV’s were few and far between and they showed life in black and white. Our imagination was fueled by great big movies and beautiful books. My dreams were powered by radio, where I sat and listened to stories of people I wanted to be like and to ice hockey games played by hero’s that seemed beyond compromise.
It would be so easy to say that life was simpler then, but it wasn’t. I doubt through the history of mankind that any time has been simple – we all have danced with angels and fought demons that lived deep inside us.
In my life I started as a son and brother, a student and an athlete. As I grew I became malcontent, an agitator then a lover and a player. I drank too much and tried too many drugs, I lived on the edge because the middle of the road was never my path.
Somehow I wound up here.
