Old Guy. 1946, the year of origin, July, 11; the month and day, at 6:15 a.m. Perhaps that explains the early morning personality. Always up before sunrise, getting a fast and early start to the day. So much to do, so little actual time, left.
Average student in school. Average radio ops/air traffic controller in Air Force. Really good student in Photo-School. Bounced around to too many photo jobs after graduating. A rolling stone, for sure. Not gathering moss has it's disadvantages. Yes, there was much to learn and it was learned. But there is always a price to pay for the choices we make. After a certain wake-up call took place a new sense of purpose took hold. Some people wake up, shake themselves hard and dig in and begin life with a new sense of purpose. Some people roll over and never get up again, some people make the same mistake again and go through the rest of their lives repeating the same steps and still only getting the same result and then wonder "why?". Life was never the same. It got better. Of course, not right away, but it got better. There are still lessons that haven't been learned. There always will be that. For the most part, there has been much joy, excitement, and fulfillment with the choices that have been made since. This life has been well lived in the second half. May it continue to be so.
