I lived in Mexico for two months with a Mexican Family.
I've had my heart broken twice and broke my soul mate's heart.
I ran a two mile race in 13:58
I spent an amazing night in Goblin Valley Utah in 1978.
I believe in another dimension.

I lived in 3 countries.
I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane.
I walked on a bed of coals.
I married someone and then found out the diamond he gave me was a fake.
I connect with the universe on a regular basis.

I have delivered 5 babies as an EMT.
Sang to a woman in the back of an ambulance on the way to the hospital as she was dying because it calmed her.
Swam with the dolphins.
Dance when I am alone from happiness.
Taught myself guitar and lead a folk group but can't read music.

During my AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps term, I lived in a Yurt, in public park outside of Seattle, Washington for 6 cold weeks. From November to December.
I have confronted my fear of heights while working on a Habitat for Humanity house from the ground up. Putting the Roof on a house was the most terrifying and exciting experience in my life.
I sang for a room of 200+ strangers, after moving 3000 miles away from everyone I knew.
I know love, I give love. I work with children.
I learned to sew with my grandma, we made my junior prom dress.

I fought and lost.
I fell in love and haven't found the ground.
I left, and I don't miss them.
You are always in my thoughts.
It's not over, not even close.

Climbed trees and sang and danced in bliss.
Had a baby when I was 16.
Lost many lovers and learned things I did not want to know.
Searched for God and found a Guru.
Climbed trees and sang and danced in bliss.

Came out as gay to wife at 43 years old.
Walked away from a multiple rollover crash at 18 with no seat-belt.
Made a lot of art.
Moved to Santa Fe N.M. after years of dreaming about it.
Have felt my faith in humanity renewed countless times.
