Who, What, When and Where...
Welcome to the journal of Charles R. Lister. I suppose I should start by saying a few things about myself. Things like the who, what, when and where. I was born in Danville, Kentucky in the spring of 1968. I grew up in that small town but in the summer of my freshman year my father relocated to Lexington, Kentucky where I graduated from Henry Clay Sr. High. After that I landed at Eastern Kentucky University studing art and theater, a choice that secured for me a life of grinding poverty.
I am however, rich with experience.
How so? Well, let's see, I've backpacked across Europe, ridden a motorcycle across America (twice), worked as an illustrator for a comic book company in New York City, Acted in a couple of Hollywood movies and even sailed the Channel islands. But in the end I returned to my home in Kentucky where I married the most beautiful woman in the whole world, an adventure that six months ago produced a little boy by the name of Thomas Wyatt Lister. After all the knocking around the map, I can honestly say that I now have everything I never knew I always wanted.
