INTRODUCTIONS

Biographical Bytes

Greetings!  Patrick here –  the name given me upon my reputed arrival on Planet Earth. Undoubtedly, I must have been present at the time, however, I sure do not recall even a single detail of it. Rather odd… I’ve occasionally pondered the fact that we rarely, if ever, seem to have any recollections whatsoever from the occasion, as we’re so often told, that was such a momentous event in our lives; auspicious enough to give cause for celebrating our birth-day ever year thereafter. I imagine it’s probably a good thing, though, that people generally do not recall what likely would be mostly traumatic, or at least unpleasant, details of their own birth.

Unfold Magic

Aside from all that, I was born in Northern California and that is where I have spent the majority of my life and livelihood. There was also a year or two residing in Michigan as a toddler; my dad had been stationed there. And many years later I would have the opportunity to live, work and play in England for about a year-and-a-half. Experiencing living abroad, living in, seeing, traveling and experiencing the UK and much of Europe – an adventurer’s dream come true. I travelled everywhere and saw and enjoyed all I could. Ah, such invaluable life experiences. So, too, was the honor of experiencing Japan, Singapore and other parts of Asia. Today, “home” is wherever I happen to be, which primarily is either with family near Ontario, Canada or with family in my hometown in California.
