I have been a lucky man in many ways over the course of my life but probably the biggest way was being born to the parents I was. Smart, kind, loving. And obsessive world travelers. Oh, I ate it up. Experimented in world cuisine and enjoyed the local greasy spoons. All before I was old enough to shave.
