I am now 40 years old.
I began this journey on April 27, 1981, @ 12:01 AM
It was 56 and partly cloudy in New York City. As far as I can tell it was a beautiful sunny day that saw a high of 67.
It was a perfect day.
Since that day my life, like yours, has been far from perfect or normal - whatever that even means.
The older I get the more difficult it is to clearly remember specific moments from my past - weird for someone who teaches history and is interested in the past.
As I was preparing this episode I first thought about taking the approach that after 40 years I don't really know anything. But the more I thought about it I realized I know an awful lot. Like I've talked about here before it's my experiences that have taught me so much.
I have screwed up and failed so many times you might wonder how I am even still here after I share some stories from the last 40 years. And that's what I am going to do. I have some stories I want to share and I believe through my experiences you will be entertained and educated.
This episode contains four stories - one from each decade I've been here.
