• A Note to the Reader •

I am not a historian by birth. I received no training in that field. What follows comes from an amateur at relating past events. Also, by dint of birth, I’m not a leader. The mistakes I made are described freely and accepted as my own. Of course, I could go on and on listing the things I’m not, but allow me to save the space by telling you what I am:

I am a psychologist.

Half of one, anyway. Half-made, half-trained, half-dead.

And this is the story of my home.
