Lucas Necessary

I was born in Atlanta, GA, but my family and I soon moved to North Carolina, followed by the mountains of northwestern Montana. There, miles from the nearest paved road, in county over 100 miles long and over 60 miles wide, I was raised in a wood cabin. For a long time, we had neither running water nor electricity, but with the woods all around, meadows nearby, and a pond and creek, it didn't matter much. Reading by kerosene lantern, trimming the wick as it became smoky and loud, was something that I enjoyed, along with fishing, climbing trees, and playing with dirt, which is incredibly fascinating when you're as poor as it. These days, I work abroad as an air traffic controller, planning my future and dreaming of the mountains. I'm slowly learning full-stack development and even more slowly putting together a little website. I hold to what I believe is a rational faith, and I want to make the lives of all people I meet just a little bit brighter. I have a lot of growing to do. With love, always, Lucas
