Rough Estimate

I have been reflecting on my childhood a lot lately.

I guess the recipe for someone like me is (Bicycles + Sledding + Boy Scouts of America + blue Fish raised to the power of lobster + imagined big time athlete multiplied by average ability + The Grenadines divided by Lagos + science raised to the power of Robert Moses divided by surfing + Robinson Crusoe + mediocre student at great schools + Church divided by pork + John Phillip Sousa + Rudyard Kipling times Roald Dahl + Shaka Zulu times Thomas Jonathan Jackson divided by David Letterman multiplied by David Farragut + Run DMC raised to the power of Rakim and then further raised to the power of the Great Robert Nesta Marley + The Souls of Black Folks raised to the power of the pyramids + Fraternity – McCoy Tyner divided by Buzz Aldrin – Charles Drew –Malcolm X divided by El Hajj Malik El Shabazz – Daniel Joseph Daly + courage under fire) all raised by the power of God’s forgiveness through Christ.

There will be no recreations.  And I still left out so much, but…

That is all.
