I was a UW-Madison student in the early 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Young, confused and not too academically oriented. The alternate program, in my young mind, was the road. Even prior to those years, just following high school, I spent one year living on a kibbutz in Israel. It was there I met people from many countries. We worked and played together in the arid desert climate, surrounded by camels and Bedouins, the nomadic Arabic people. I was comfortable with the exotic and unknown. I continued working, studying some and traveling throughout the 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. In the 90â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, I did many things.
