This is my autobiographical novel in progress, the story of my life. I was doing well, beginning to make some progress with love until we moved to Kenya as I was entering tenth grade. I took up casual drug use there, booze and pot. My internal progress slowed to a crawl. I had to crawl from 1965 to 2016, when I stopped drinking and 2019 when I gave up drugs period. Recreational drug use doesn't fit with making progress. It's one or the other. My wisdom never gave up. She succeeded in wrestling me back onto the spiritual quest and I'm doing well once again. I work on this every day. Both making progress and chronicling my way forward. Want to tip the writer? PayPal to waltz23 at gmail dot com. Thank you!
