It was back in the summer of '69 in New England. I'm far, far, far from there now both literally and figuratively!

I guess my point is, that things can be talked about, and talked about in a way that just isn't done in "normal" company when one is in therapy. If one tries the same thing in public, the workplace, church,etc., then it's called (now, anyway) "spilling one's guts." I think the difference is important to learn but I never got that from therapy. Actually, I think there should be a place for learning socially appropriate behavior (like etiquette and polite conversation making) in therapy as well as other places but doubt most therapists do it.

I'm still a bit embarrassed over that incident but have gone on to other things plus I realize the time, place, and circumstances that give it a certain perspective. But, you are so kind and much appreciated for your sympathy and understanding.

> The part about the summer camp, the owner going ballistic .. how long ago did that happen (just generally, 10, 20 years ago, last year, five?). I'm curious because I remember stuff from a *long* time ago; I mean, stuff that changed how I relate to the world. One-time incidents, like the one you're describing. I just think that's terribly sad for us.
