So, has anything happened since 1965?

Sure, like all of us I’ve been doing stuff,
lots and lots of stuff, fifty-plus years of it.

I was a college student then a college dropout, a long-haired drifter hitching around the US & Europe then a short-haired Navy radioman in the Aleutians & Vietnam. Afterwards, more drifting—Ireland to India & Nepal, herding carp on a kibbutz along the way. Back in school to study philosophy, literature, living on the streets.

Lotsa jobs—chain-link fences, railroad cars, handyman, cook (burger joint, college dorm, snack bar). Mowed lawns, and was a swamper (truck driver’s assistant) in Kansas oil country. Janitor, teacher, dialysis center, options company, abstractor-indexer…

Joined the State Department (Foreign Service) in 1987. Studied French, Japanese, Hebrew; lived in Barbados, Paris, Tel Aviv, DC. One marriage, no children, many good years. Widowed. Cristin died in 2005, I retired in 2006, and in 2010 packed the car and drove to the West Coast.

I now spend my time lounging in cafes, hanging with friends,
strolling the safest beach in the world, and writing poetry.
My website is williamdekypia.com.

Best to all,

Bill

Ray, if you're retired, how come the "Work, more work..."?

Good luck with the plotting.
