A friend says that I’ve had a diasporic life — six years a soldier, twenty a lawyer, twelve a computer professional.
The journey has been eventful and interesting, with many unexpected twists and turns.
A mentor told me once that I was an iconoclast, living in paradox. It is as good a description as any, I guess.
I’m now retired, living in rural Wisconsin with my partner, Michael.
We live on land settled by my great-great-grandfather before Wisconsin was a state.
I am of this land, and I am at home.
