About the author:
Ray Jason has enjoyed a contrary- to-ordinary life. After receiving his Political Science degree, he was drafted and served in Vietnam aboard an ammunition ship. This experience convinced him to avoid the "real world" as much as possible. He achieved this by spending the next 20 years juggling torches, knives and bowling balls on the streets of San Francisco-with considerable skill, prompting San Francisco's Mayor to declare July 17, 1981 Ray Jason Day. He has spent his recent years as a sea gypsy-wandering the wide waters in search of adventure, serenity and philosophical insights.
