Big Lift Ferry Poem F177

In high school, I was one thing –
I’ve since worked to be
Everything else

Notes to this poem…

Nerd turned Renaissance Man… and then some. More than just math and sciences, I represented a university at a North American general knowledge competition. I was nominated for a Rhode Scholar, though I didn’t get it. I have athletics which the Renaissance Man wasn’t often associated to be. I am tech savvy that wasn’t prominent in the day. I have multiple artistic skills as well, not just one. I’m also very practical from handy man stuff to finances, cooking, etc. I was practically useless except for some academic competitions in high school 25 years ago now. 🙂

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
