A New World Opens Before Me

Any story should start at the beginning, but since there really is no beginning to life, just a continuum of experiences or lives, I will begin in the year 1982. It was a period in time in which I was mildly dissatisfied with life.

Life had been good, I had all the material things we needed or wanted, a house that was paid for, three lovely daughters, a swimming pool, two car garage, everything but a white picket fence. I had a marriage that wasn’t very happy or fulfilling for either of us, but we stayed together, always hoping it would get better.


Only 38 years old, I had accomplished quite a lot, but I began to wonder what life was “really” all about. I knew it had to be about more than a two car garage and a picket fence, (which I didn’t have). I also began to sense I should be spending more time reading and enjoying life, which for me was extremely hard to do. I always had to be doing something, to be physically active; reading seemed like a total waste of time.

I soon discovered one should never ignore the urgings of the soul, if ignored, they will manifest in some way that is not as pleasant as if one had paid heed and been more attentive.
