A beginning a gebinning a nibenging. The engraved chain on my wrist claims: Born on April 21, 1978 at 10:50 AM in a Minneapolis Hospital. I don't remember. I begin to remember at Mount Rushmore in 1981. Driving across the country, my brother lost somewhere trying to get a better look at Teddy Roosevelt. The Pacific still a long ways away. But the next memory I have I am there. Cold blue. Did I begin at Mount Rushmore?
