ACCORDING TO MOST OF SOCIETY'S BENCHMARKS KATHY AND I ARE ABSOLUTE FAILURES. We don't own a home, our car is nearly 20 years old, neither of us even has any marketable job skills - let alone a career, we still struggle each month to buy basic groceries ... but we have already achieved our greatest success as Mammals: raising Offspring to be better suited to surviving than we are. Today our beloved daughter Angela turns 26 years old. Growing up off-grid in the Okanogan Highlands in a 12' x 16' cabin with no electricity, phone, internet, or running water; being homeschooled up in the mountains; earning a 4 year degree in Environmental Science from the University of Washington; serving two years in the Peace Corps in Madagascar; and now having set up a life for herself in Colorado, it's plain for all to see that she is a far better Grownup than is either of us.
What a Blessing to be a Hominid who has been far surpassed by their own Offspring!
