All About Me

Today's (June 16) radio show was very interesting. The host called me about a half-hour before the show and said he wanted to talk about me--my childhood, teen years, college days, etc.

I was uncomfortable with the idea, because I'm a very private person. But then the show started, and I opened up. What it was like growing up in Washington D.C. in the 1970s. What it was like going to a fine arts high school. College. Law school.
