Now for the fun part: what has surprised, troubled, enchanted, and humbled you about the first however-many-years of your life?
- Surprised: I've been surprised... uhhhh... thaaaaat (just kidding)... I've been surprised at how fresh the mystery seems to me after 31 years.
- Troubled: I'm troubled by the rigorous sedateness of contemporary "work" in America. I fear that sitting in front of a glow-screen for ten hours a day is bad for people.
- Enchanted: I'm enchanted by golfing, especially by hitting a good seven-iron onto a par three.
- Humbled: I'm humbled by the knowledge that there is something in me that is everlasting and universal, and by the fact that I understand that thing not-at-all.
