My road in life has taken me all over.
As early as high school, I could feel that I wanted to make a mark, but I didn't know how or what.
After my freshman year at NYU, I studied in Vienna, Austria--which changed my life forever.
When I got out of the Army in 1969 I moved to New Haven, CT. took a room at the YMCA, began substitute teaching.

It's never too late to push yourself outward.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

Build relationships. Write your life goals down. Declare your intention, so that when you meet people who take you seriously you will be clear about who you are and what you are looking for.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"If you have a dream, and the dream appears misguided or a flight of fancy, be prepared to spend a lot of time in your interior--it can be lonely. After a while, people avoid asking questions. "
