All righty then. I am a middle-aged museum director from San Diego who really wants to sail the seas as captain of a pirate ship. Life isn’t so much about what we do but who we are. I say, “Go for the adventures of a lifetime!” Because you may not get a second chance.
I don’t write about the boring details of my life or the day-to-day litanies of my activities because, frankly, that bores the wits right out of me. My writing grows in the Petri dish of observation of life and its funny plays and players.
Although I love working, I don’t like to think we are defined by our jobs or the work we do. I would much rather be remembered by the trouble I’ve caused or the adventures I’ve created. I don’t climb corporate ladders or strive for awards, but when the graces of good karma rain down, I relish them with true gratefulness.
