For the first half of the 1980s while in my early twenties, I became a regional "celebrity." While it was not my first taste of celebrity, it was the first experience that would forever alter my childhood ambition to be famous.
However, singular pleasures abounded. Now I can look on the internet and learn that my letters and articles written in the Philadelphia monthly "The Irish Edition" are now housed in the Pennsylvania Historical Society.
My letters concerning subjects of Irish literature and history I was working on are also housed in the National Library of Ireland, located in Dublin.
Totally groovy, man.
