Memories with loved ones should be kept for a lifetime. As much as most people want to store such pleasant images and keep these in the recesses of their hearts, this just cannot be considering the limited faculties we humans have. If it can be possible, then perhaps only a portion of those birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and Christmas parties will only be remembered. Continue reading “Taking Care of Your Canvas Prints”

We now have a new generation of veterans. I’m calling these new vets, The New Greatest Generation. They have been at war longer than in any of our wars. We cannot tolerate as a country the venom and hate that was directed toward our Vietnam Veterans. That was a horrible stain on our country. I gave three special events last year during Veterans Day week where I spoke about my involvement in WWII as a 5 year old tap dancer with a Big Band, Kay Kyser. We entertained at the VA Hospitals in Southern California.
I saw men on those wards that perhaps a small child of 5 should never have seen. Continue reading “We Now Have Veterans of a New Greatest Generation”

The Meatpacker’s Boy
(or, ‘The Impudent Student ‘)
((June, 1957) (Ecole St. Louis, School, and Part Four: “The Winter School”))
His brain had refused to grapple with the theme of learning and desisted: he had covered his papers with little animals and like figures, names of certain people in the classroom, like Linda M., and Mike R. Now it appeared as if he would fail again-he told himself in confidence.
During the course of the school year, all the studies and elements which the nuns deemed common and significant for learning fell out of his head-one by one; and out of the overall purpose of school itself. Continue reading “The Meatpacker’s Boy and These Poems Will Perish”

I recently had heart-to-heart conversations with three teenage clients about their fathers. I found it interesting that, though they don’t know each other or come from the same part of the country, they shared a common theme: they struggle with the hurt of not feeling loved by their fathers. I have also communicated with some of their fathers and learned they struggle with wanting to connect to their daughters but don’t know how. Human beings are the one species on this planet that die without this significant need: emotional connection.
In my years of counseling the men who were brave enough to enter my office and engage with me, I have come to a deeper understanding and appreciation for a man’s heart, especially when he is a father. Continue reading “A Father’s Heart”
