Getting Out There

The story of an adoption and how I overcame my anxiety

Gunja & Baby David

Gunya and me

I left home when I was 3 months old.

A few months after I was born I was “given away” “temporarily” to a more stable family than my 22-year old studying single mother could handle.

I landed up growing up with that family, an extraordinary one, full of artists and stories. My (adoptive) parents got divorced when I was 2; my (adoptive) father died when I was 15 years old, prompting a search to my biological father.

A lifelong search for roots, identity, beauty, knowledge and wisdom through curiosity and love for art and music, and lots of uncertainty, adversity and anxiety.

My goal is to be a good father to my “real” son (b. 2018).

Plus, I hope to see my memoir published. Then, I want to write (more) about life, love, people, ideas. Getting Out There. Connect. Cooperate.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and shun evil.
It will be a cure for your body,
A tonic for your bones.
