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 become smoky and loud, was something that I very much enjoyed, as well as fishing, climbing trees, and playing with dirt, which is incredibly fascinating. 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
