  • Who did homework? To my regret (because I don't have a degree, hehe) and my everlasting delight, I found books, painting and an enduring love and respect of Art, Music and Literature,
    the Hoola Hoop, yoyo, ants, religion, graffiti, climbing trees, politics.
    History is at the end, of course, as an appreciation of it comes late and is written by the winners.
