I returned hoping to find lives but instead I found absence. Maybe a poem to write on the subject?
I finally got around to finding this site where the bios of illuminatis are calligraphied on gilt scrolls. Frankly speaking I feel humble, me, who without Google at my fingertip, couldn't write a plainly good decent sentence in English.
As to my biography I was lucky all my life this far. I was born in a Slav country and as a consequence I was swaddled to the point that to this day I can't stand a tucked sheet at the end of my toes. Being small, I ducked the German occupying armies in Kiev then fled hidden under transport truck benches, with my parents through several ravaged European locations. Our fleeing ended in Morocco where I spent many happy years. A portion of my legionnaire's life, about 3 years, was spent ducking the North African revolution until they won their independence from France.
Thereafter I ducked the French draft by emigrating to the USA where I ducked the French and American draft by serving in the USAR. Then I went back again to educating myself and was decked once and for all except for making money.
Having succeeded at that and then having lost most of it in the 2008 real estate debacle I was still left with enough to be called a trailer-trash owner.
Since then I am happiest pursuing culture and intellectual affairs and am content to distribute my literati gifts to the 4 winds since I strongly believe in FREE education... lol and look forward to my penultimate fun retirement before my final one. I hope to leave enough trash for my inheritors to waste their lives sorting it out instead of living their own life. I forewarned them of that!

Left on earth as an infant by lower middle class parents, who had to jettison
extra weight to make it back to the Beach planet of Sandincrack 7 on what was left of a depleted fuel supply.
Space Dad, as was his custom, had blown all his Fusion Credits in Vegas playing black jack and frequenting trans-gender dance reviews….
So, I was left with a loving family of earth dwellers, who were in the habit of taking in children from other worlds.
A love of literature was bestowed upon me by my earth Father and a love of sarcasm by Kurt Vonnegut…
I have worked in virus research, medical investigations, technical writing, drafting, design and ego rustling…
I have been ripening on the vine for quite some time and am full of untapped, heady, intoxicating musings, which will impact the senses as a finely age bouquet or a unendurable stench in the nostrils of polite society….
In other words, like other writers, I am a rich compost pile of untapped potential…
Cheers and Blessings…
