For me, 1968 rings of that but, there are other years as well. I've never had any desire for drugs but, there was a time when I was around them daily because the guys I liked and their friends were deep into them.

Anyway, you started off mentioning parental forgiveness. That was something that was very difficult for me but, I did eventually forgive my father for what he thought was right but, in reality, was wrong about the way he treated his children. He said that if he had it to do all over again, he'd be a different man. That was an amazing moment for me hearing him say that.

That's a rare thing to hear one's parent say. Kim's stepfather "says" it with his actions now, but would never say it in words. '

You're right that I started out talking about parental forgiveness. I was hoping to generate some friction between the idea of parents who are far from perfect and the lure of the fall. I'm not sure it worked, but it was worth a shot. If nothing else, it looks like a self-critique directed towards a future twenty years down the road!
