I’ve rescued wild dolphins, trained seals and sea lions, scuba-dived in the gloom under 15 feet of ice, done stand-up comedy, directed plays, spent winters in Antarctica, traveled the world, and cheated death more than once. I speak a little French, un poco Spanish, a bit of German, a few words of Japanese and Navajo, and a smattering of English. I’ve been a biologist, professional dancer, laboratory manager, college professor, drummer in a band, professional diver, research assistant, photographer, surfer, and water skier. And through it all, I’ve been a writer.
Don’t ask me to explain why I am compelled to write things down, to document my experiences, and to tell stories. I don’t know why. I do know that I have, as Jimmy Buffet once said, grown older but not up. I am still curious (in both meanings of the word). Words fascinate me. Thinking (or, as is so often the case with humans, the lack thereof) fascinates me. Stories fascinate me. The universe fascinates me.
So I write.
