I was born laughing, but I became a fast learner. I was crippled from age 4 to 14: crutches, chairs, braces and they sent the homework home. I sat in bed and figured out the math and English workbooks while I watched the other kids out the window splashing in the plastic pool. I still can't spell, but I learned how to learn.
†††† Bad legs kept me out of the army when it counted, and made me a guerrilla athlete. I run so I can walk. I learned to tell time when I was 5 by watching the hands and counting seconds, minutes and hours. I never caught up with time. I liked to figure things out.
†††† Around 9 or 10 I was surprised to learn about death. I was deeply offended. I never figured death out.
†††† I left school when I realized that it wasn't there to teach me. I don't like any kind of boot-camp and since the Cub Scouts wouldn't have me because I was a crip, I never liked any kind of uniform. I was never anyone's assistant, and I never studied with any great guru, so I've read about 6000 books.
†††† I have come close to 4 wars; 3 years in Saigon, 1 in Iran, and I sat in the monsoons in Calcutta when the bodies poured across from Bangladesh, and in Nicaragua I came the closest to dying. I never figured out war either.
†††† I have worked as an usher, paperboy, meat packer, librarian, courier, door-to-door salesman, boat builder, post office clerk, jewelry maker, wire sculptor, carpenter, day labor in Standard Oil, furniture builder, book designer, computer operator, programmer and analyst. I went around the world twice. I got old. I got cynical. I get sad sometimes when I read the newspaper. But life still surprises me, and death. I still laugh, though I never figured anything out.
