Guilt and the American Dream

I refuse to go into the historical underpinnings for the title.  Research Luther and Calvin for starts; that should take a couple of years of and by (itself).  What I find interesting is that I’m writing now–prose and poetry, fiction and nonfiction–and obsessively.  I can’t imagine not writing obsessively.  The reverse side of that is when I don’t write.  I don’t control that.  Best of all, when I can only write in one venue (blogging, say)…I get to feel guilty anyway.  Thanks, Aunt Marie, who became Mom and then dead.  My own mother (now in Montana and flagging in consciousness, so to speak) was at least a lot easier to get along with.


At least Catholics can confess and forget about it, I suppose.
