Most significant events in your life

Most of my life has been spent in Hawaii ( 1970 to 1990), North Bay Area, Napa, Sonoma (1990- 2009) and now Santa Barbara, Ca.(retirement, better word would be Japanese word, ikigai- why I now jump out of bed in the morning to follow my passions.) I now am a Hospice volunteer living with death daily. This helps me to focus on meaningful "life". I still swim regularly, bike daily ( finally finished my bike ride across the U.S.A.) and perform regular grandpa duties. I have had my entire adult life somewhere other than Arizona. I am drawn to visit with those special West High friendships that help me revisit those early years. How was I influenced at West and what has happened to my Phoenix peers? Color me curios!

School Story or best memories of your time at West, who was your favorite teacher:

I loved sports, friends, and English teacher Mr. Johnson. He planted the early seeds of my 30 year teacher career. I do regret my high school shyness. It got in the way of my total high school experience.

Words of wisdom

My words of wisdom have come from experiences that I carry from my failures, my Bible, and the many books that Mr. Johnson got me interested in reading while at West. Books have created a vision, and extensive travel has helped me to understand and appreciate this beautiful world we live in.

Susan,
I lived in Hauula for a year in 1976 before Mililani Town and Honululu. That is quite a departure from middle America. Not to mention the Marshall Islands. After reading your comment about Serge I pondered on the fact that so many of us were influenced by our teachers at West. Hope to get a chance to talk to you at the reunion. Bob Basche
