Raised in a country setting on a small homestead supported by meager means. The second eldest, the only boy, among five children born to two ambitious parents. Though education was emphasized in our home, work on the homestead took priority. To such a home grown adolescent boy the ability to work with his hands was interpreted as the only necessity for a means of successful life survival. Desiring an escape from the homestead life, at sixteen I ventured away from school and home into a life of full-time employment. Enjoying the income that my hard labor provided, but unable to find meaning to life, I squandered fortunes on wayward living. I married young and soon for the first time meaning and purpose in life seemed possible through my wife and our two daughters.
