On October 21st Streetlight Magazine published my essay “Cousin Paul.” The Paul mentioned in the essay is Paul McCartney, the famous Beatle. My adventure started when I had tea with a known relative, Ellen Winters. By chance I later learned she was the sister to Paul’s grandfather and that Paul and I are third cousins. Sir Paul and I never met and most probably never will. The piece is about my discovery and some of the personalities along the way.
