I was scrawny baskethooper who dreamed of playing shooting-guard for the local team. Another high schooler though had taken my spot and I disliked him for it. He was a hot-dogger, he was cocky and he had not paid his dues.
Then there was the scandal. He had a severe lapse in judgment and his life was brought down several pegs. He played on and grew up.
At one point, like me, he became a father and all evidence tells me he was a good man. I had no dislike in my heart anymore. I never knew him but I mourn anyone that goes too soon. Even worse knowing that one of his prides and joys won
Hugo’s youngest sister called to ask for a big family favor. She needs to move in for a little while so that she can pursue a career opportunity. This simple requests causes Hugo to think about his creature comforts and his challenges with visiting family. He then talks about how he tackles making room for it all in his head.
After many months of reflection and internal considerations, I have chosen to make a transition this year and carve a new role within the pantheon of the Castillo-Torres family.
I intend to step back as a elder within the Two Towers organization and give up the august wealth and influence my lineage has afforded me.
The goal is to live among you all as common folk burdened with what I have come to learn is a “mortgage” and “bills”?
While this transition occurs please accept my deepest thanks for all your continued support.

The first few times I arrived at what is now home I was relegated to the guest couch on the southern end of the living room. I dreaded that seat because my future in-laws had positioned it right under the a/c and heating vent which meant a constant blast of air any time we all sat watching the telly before Nic and I made our way back to her room to study.
Two score and two years since then I have clawed my way to the best perch in the living room with no plans to relinquish it.
Still, that guest couch remains, awaiting some wily suitor willing to pay her/his dues.
