I got an interesting request from my friend Kirk Werner the other day. He wanted me to take my own 20 Questions Challenge, and he wanted to host the inquisition on his site, The Unaccomplished Angler.
At first, I was a bit hesitant... I mean, these questions, essentially stolen from 150 years worth Proust profiles, couldn't possibly reveal anything interesting in me. But I'll say this... if nothing else, they forced me consider some of my history and some of my future (as dismal as that might be).
I've learned that I can be something of an asshole (as if I'd really send my loved ones all over Creation in order to spread my ashes exactly where I wanted them spread ... puh-lease!). I've learned that the hardest journeys in life have the greatest rewards. And, as I sit here in a Washington, D.C., hotel room, I am reminded of how much I miss being home.
Thanks, Kirk, for the suggestion. Here's to boosting your Google analytics, my friend.
