So, the questions begin...

After much searching on the Internet and soliciting my friends, I did my first interview with a stranger today about his life. You will meet him next year, but here's a sneak peak: His name is Calvin and he is 19 years old. He came over to fix my Dell computer and little did he know, he became my first "subject." I have to admit that I was a little nervous. Will he wonder why I am asking so many personal questions? Will he be put off?

I am happy to say that he was open to his life right off of the bat. Who knew that a Dell technician wants to base jump with a squirrel suit on and drive the wrong way on the freeway before he dies.

I suppose you never know what someone will say...

I look forward to more profiles...

American Life Today

In May, I embarked on my dream adventure. I went out on the open road to seek answers within myself. I wanted a change. I wanted to learn more about who I am, where I have been, and where I am going. I saw some amazing places. I met some wonderful people. Throughout this journey, I kept reflecting on what’s really important in this lifetime.

For me, it’s the people that have been in my life and who are in it today. Not only the loved ones I’ve lost, but the ones I’ve set out to meet and the ones I happen to come across by chance. I love the everyday “American Story.” Everyone has dreams, goals, disappointments, and significant moments that have changed the direction of their life. I want to know what they are. I want to know what moves you. How did you get to where you are today? What’s your life story?

The next part of my journey is finding you. I am going to post profiles of Americans living their life. One personal story for each day. There is always something to learn from others. Who has touched your life and why? Is there someone you know of that I should feature? How about yourself? What was the most significant moment in your life that brought you to where you are today?

As I continue to travel, I want to introduce you to the men and women of this country. Please visit the site for more information. I am on the lookout for profiles.

Maggie trying to swim

Maggie doesn't like to swim, but sometimes I can talk her into it. She needs a little more practice, as you can see. However, she does enjoy trying to bite the water when you splash it. We are in Vermillion, South Dakota.
