 each place I lived in during my years in Harrisburg has significantly affected why Harrisburg Pennsylvania IS NOT WHERE I CHOOSE TO LIVE. 

 IT HAS TO DO WITH LIMITED STRAIGHT-LACED pERSONALITY THAT IS TYPICAL FOR  PEOPLE WHO GREW UP WORKING IN AN AREA WHERE PEOPLE WORKED, AND WERE MOSTLY EMPLOYED BY THE LOCAL GOVERMENT, YES, LOCAL "ART" WAS PROFOUNDLY INLUENCED BY LOCAL EMPLOYERS  WELL AS WELL AS ARTISIC INSTITUTIONS.

NEW PROJECT FOR JD

 Someplace  there's an big deal percolating that could/would/ should re vamp  our son 's quiet, innermost thinking,

Write a book about the Kid who knew he had a birth defect that made him very different from kids he palled around with in school..

How and when did he find out what was wrong with him? Was it looking in a mirror and seeing the scars on his abdomen he got from surgery?  Did he realize his anus was created  by surgery?  Did he read medical stuff--did Dr. Anthony Shaw  tell him.  (Shaw saved his life when he was born. Jd could't breathe.) How did our son find out what was wrong? 

When did JD punch his bedroom window--literally put his fist through the glass? 

The pschiatrists that were consulted --advice he was given-- only further infuriated JD.  Other doctors wanted a fully detailed story of his background and my prenancy. 

 What was the best advice?  Does it linger  in his mind? Did he confide in anyone? Anwers to many questions  have never been discussed but the extremely articulate man has been profoundly affected  by being born with this major birth defect.  yes, oh my yes, HE PUNCHED THE WINDOW.

WHAT WOULD  HE ADVISE SOMEONE WHO GREW UP THE WAY HE DID 

MOM SAYS, " JD JUST WRITE A BOOK ABOUT THIS, SEND A SAMPLE CHAPTER 1."
