I’m 49 years old and going on old. And I don’t mean this in a depressing way, just a message that I understand the path that each of us must follow, that is if we are lucky enough to manage to get this far.
With age, comes a bit of enlightenment, a bit of introspection, and perhaps a few humorous glances backwards at our former selves as the demanding, self-righteous and unerring young adults we all were. Or perhaps it was just I?
I love to read. I read like I eat, voraciously. I collect First Edition books and have surrounded myself in a large library full of them and then I go into phases where I won’t touch a book for a month. Maybe I think I will gain knowledge by osmosis.
I am a UCLA graduate with a degree in history, happily married and the father of 3 wonderful children.
