*This month it's been ten years since I left the military--the Army having been four of the most important years of my life. The realest thing I've ever done.
*This month I graduate with my history BA.
*This month my first published work goes to press--commercial ink meets paperback sheets at long last!
*This month I should be stressed to be graduating into the worst job market since the Great Depression. Rightly or wrongly, I'm not.
I've been fortunate that my life has always had sense of a structure to it--chapters tied together with meaning in the connectivity and the overlap of themes. And it feels profoundly serendipitous that so many endeavors should conclude all at once even as others begin.
