I want to tell you a story about the most intimate moment of my life. It was July 17th 2000 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia at a hotel. And no, it’s not what you’re thinking.

 

So to work my way towards there, I want to tell you about the second and third most intimate moments of my life.

 

The third one is from five years ago when I went to visit my great uncle, so my Mom’s uncle, and saw how old he was getting. 94 is just an abstract number that I can’t relate to really, even though I’m not getting any younger. So I saw my Uncle Steve and I always remember how even as he got older and retired he worked in his garden, cleaned his barn, and mowed his own grass — and when I went to see him this time, those things had stopped.
