It begins with a poem…


An Ode to the Universe
AKA The Day of My Birth Revisited 35 Years Later

O glorious day of my Start Begin!
How grateful I am to you
for penciling me into your schedule!
You had a lot going on that day.
And yet…
you made the time for me.

I look at star charts and read my horoscope
but I can only guess the planetary positions
and the aspects in the sky.
I don’t know the hour of my birth.
I don’t know what your plans were and are for me.
(That’s okay! I do like surprises!)

And in fact,
I may not have been born this day
so many years ago.
That’s okay too! (I do like a tantalizing mystery!)
I have no official birth certificate to verify me.
Which suits me, the Lorax and the trees!

Adopted. Check.
Naturalized. Check.
My Port of Entry? Denver Colorado.
My ship arrived by Air not Water.
I was given a change of scenery.
From city to country.

My earliest memories of Earth
are a cookie-cutter neighborhood.
Each house and driveway the same…
The same…
The same…
The same.

I recall
the vast Colorado plain
stretching under a wide open skyscape.
Those distant Rocky mountains on the horizon
calling to me.
I can still see them so clearly in my mind’s eye.

Would I be the same person I am today?
Would I in Seoul?
Maybe ‘yes’ and maybe ‘no’.
That old Nature vs. Nurture argument…
how it makes me laugh.
Some say, “We’ll never know.”

I know.
I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
I wouldn’t have done the things I’ve done.
Or seen what I have seen.
Learned what I have learned.
Be who I am Now.

So thank you.
And thank you.
I thank you.
My eternal thanks to you.
