Honestly, I don't know that anything I could put here would be as accurate or descriptive as necessary. In truth, I have been fortunate to become an eclectic blend of what my parents built and that which I made out to become - like most of us. Besides though, how do you tell the story of your life and not leave something out ?
In a brief glimpse, I know that in time I want to run for office - doing what I can in the only thing I have ever been good at. Perhaps I may even be given the opportunity to help people by showing a better way of fulfillment through civic involvement.
I want my wife to know how much I love her despite the knowledge that I probably will never be able to do so. I want to have children in an attempt at giving the gift which has brought me joy - and hope that I can do half the job my own did for me.
I'd like to buy some land - build our own castle, retire out from public life - to think and to write again if I could ever get over this damn block.
I would like to give my wife a smooth sportscar - so that in the comfort of cool autumn evenings, I can steal those keys to remember 17 and maybe enjoy the engineer I was not to become. Not to stay out too late - just a little while.
I seek the most perspective I can and there's a litany of adjectives that probably do a better job than anything I write; human, husband, son, brother, soldier, stoic/romantic, friend - did I mention human ?
