In knowing myself, I think it's illustrative to briefly portray those who mean the most to me.
My father Huston - two Latin phrases: Esse quam videri and Semper fidelis.
My mother Alice Faye - the family Caregiver, the one who has always assumed the task of looking after someone chronically sick or weak. There is someone like this in every family I know, and this is the person with the least amount of control over his or her own life. I conjecture that this is why Mom spends a lot of her energy cleaning where no one else can see a spot.
My wife Lisa - my Everyday Miracle.
My daughter Georgia - Teacher-to-be, nearly ready to tackle the world.
My son Andy - the family Empiricist.
My son David - the family Believer.
My mother-in-law Meki - Survivor and inspiration.
