No rags-to-riches yarn… no bs stories or attempts at image-making here. No beautiful offspring with which I can proudly pose. Nevertheless, I do sometimes feel like the luckiest man on Earth, so to speak.
Since a youngster, I’ve lived in one of the most beautiful and fun places in the country to live, work and play. I’m fortunate to have remained in good health despite my many attempts at self-destruction. I was fortunate enough to circumnavigate the globe by sea, and spent a small fortune pursuing my bliss racing just about any ‘velocipede’ I could get my mitts on. I’ve also been blessed with a most loving family, the sweetest gal on Earth, and some of the best friends and ‘nephews’ one could ever ask for.
Both my natural parents were college professors by profession. My mom being a fine artist (drawing, painting, printmaking) and art historian, and my father a botanist (plant anatomy) and “creative evolutionist”, I think it’s fair to say that I possess a reasonable genetic foundation for this wonderful journey through the Internet’s world of Cannabis politics, economics, and science.
My wish is that you find my sincere affection and deep appreciation for the natural sciences and the visual arts reflected on these pages. I figure I’ll get better at it as I go.
