Like most of us, David Billings has spent a life time watching society with both curiosity and dismay as it seems to try to go everywhere at once and, in the process, goes nowhere but to decline. David’s quest to write this, and other books, began on a camping trip in Northern Ontario when he was eight years old and caught a fish with his bare hands about an hour before an eclipse of the sun. The long drive home, with its progressive re-entry into society gave him a sense of mission: to find out why grown ups are so crazy and how he could grow up without growing old. The wordless wonder of an eight year was carried through university degrees in commerce, social organization and human relations as well as economics from the University of Western Ontario plus biological engineering from the University of Guelph. He taught briefly at Sheridan College. Without accepting any major corporate responsibilities that tend to make all of us grow old beyond our control, he has developed an answer to his childhood curiosity into the balance of growing up and growing old by working as an independent poet/handyman.
