My Stuff and Welcome to It
My Stuff And Welcome To It is a Memoir about growing up during the Baby Boom of the fifties and sixties. A time of innocence, a time of social upheaval. A time of sex, drugs and rock & roll, but more then anything else it was my time to fall in love.
My Stuff And Welcome To It is my attempt at telling a true story of growing up in a big family that lived in a tiny house and some of the universal truths that we all share as members of the human race. I suppose more than anything else it is just time to tell these little stories before they are gone. Forgotten like so many other things in our fast-paced lives. Stories about a time that was much different from today. A time before technology took over every aspect of our lives. It never occurred to me at the time that the way we were raised and the way we lived our lives would start to fade way. I would never have guessed that being a part of a neighbourhood would be replaced by belonging to a network. That we would plug into some cold and lifeless computerized device to communicate with one another, instead of simply saying hello in the street. That as a boy, running to a neighbours house to borrow a cup of sugar would become one of the greatest lessons of my life. Our society becomes just a little more jaded and a little more cynical with each passing day. It is my hope that somehow the words I have written on these pages help to take you back to a time of innocence. A time when as kids we played in the streets without a care in the world. To a time when teenagers believed "All You Need Is Love" for no other reason than The Beatles told us so.
