the gift of a mountain

thrashing through life doing this and that...with the exception of a couple small jobs that ended up being short term...i've never really liked anything i've been up to. just getting a paycheck...just hanging in there trying to avoid one addiction, only to be taken in by others. yep, keep a close eye on the booze and the drugs, sex and gambling will get you every time. but hey i avoided the family pitfall... small pat on the back.

spent a lifetime of trying to figure out what i wanted to be when i grew up. never really figured it out but i would often reply when asked about such: "i want to sit on a mountain top and dispense wisdom" and of course folks laughed and the daily grind continued.
