This particular post is totally uncharacteristic of Barataria and all it stands for. It’s deeply personal. I apologize in advance for those of you who expect something else.
The most common criticism I’ve received over the years is that I rarely talk about myself. Well, if I told you all about my life I doubt you’d believe it. It’s been a long, strange trip and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Let this stand on its own and you can judge for yourself. This is a blog, after all. Time for a major self indulgent posting.
