From a dirt farmer
in South America to the heights of California society, from
a promiscuous life style to the peace of Christian life, this
is the story of the first thirty-five years of my life. While
some sought money, fame, or education, or some other goal,
I sought the experience of life and to the best of my ability,
I was a seeker of the Supreme Power in that experience. This
story is factual according to the perceptions I've encountered
Union with God has always been of great importance for me
since I first thought about such things and it seemed simple
and basic enough for me to regard it as a pillar to my real
goal of eternal happiness.
The geography of my various sites or fields where I was able
to embark upon meaningful activity are clearly noted in the
work as are the real names of those characters with whom I
interacted. Highlights include my marriage with my now late
wife (with which I conclude); life at six major universities,
Notre Dame; U.C Berkeley; Boston College; University of the
Valle, Cali, Colombia; Edinboro, PA and Allegheny College,
PA. Encounters with celebrities in various countries as well
as relationships with women during my first thirty-five years.
Episodes with psychiatric professionals and institutions also
took much of my attention and effort to overcome.
Finally, my nuclear family and extended family relationships
played an important part of my life.
