The author owes a debt of gratitude to the exceptional blogs, "The Daily Prep" (http://thedailyprep.blogspot.com/) and "The Trad" (http://thetrad.blogspot.com/), without which, he would yet to be re-awakened, re-inspired, and ready to re-join the ranks of his prep heritage. And so the prodigal son returns.
Where has the author been lo these many years (approximately 17 years, marked by a few moments of prep/trad lucidity)? Like so many people - trying to make his way in the world.
New jobs, new relationships, new locations cause one, at times, to want to fit in with the environment, to hold the Present and the Future in higher regard than the Past. Each has its place; each is always making you who you are. The Past is Prologue.
