I just realized my first introduction didn’t say much about me biographically. I have lived in southern California all my life. I was born in Santa Monica in January 1954 and grew up in the west San Fernando Valley. The Valley is where I live now, although I’ve resided as far away as San Diego and Orange County. When I was 18 I became part of a crazy free nondenominational Christian church family, and that has been a major part of my life for over 40 years. Looking forward to participating with all of you this coming weekend!
