The Strange Paths We All Follow: And Other Sh*T You Will Love to Read About
When I first set out to write this book, I never thought it would make it this far. I figured it would be a few short stories for my kids to read when they were old enough. Not so much because I wanted to leave a legacy but because I’ve lived through some crazy stuff. I wanted to show them just how nuts it could all get but how spectacular it could be as well. I hoped they would be able to find some sort of lesson in it and maybe live a little better because of it.
What ended up happening is the book that you hold in your hands. More than I expected, probably because even I was unaware of everything I had been through until I started telling it.
And as I told the stories, I came to realize that life is a treasure. I saw just how much I had been through and all that had almost happened—the times I had been blessed, cursed, and the recipient of pure dumb luck. And I thought maybe someone else might like to read this.
Well, congratulations, reader, because you now have in your hands one of the strangest lives I have ever had the privilege to live, and I am glad to have you along for the ride.
