Felix Vacky me Zawadzki. Till my 16th birthday it was known as Pete

Should’ed asked about how you’re doing first + guess, but I have some inkling of that from your mom & mom mom.
There is this Poet; Robert Bly whose books & thoughts have influences me much. He was on the tube last night, P.B.S. talking with Bill Moyer about “a gathering of men” He said that most American fathers spend less than 10 min when with their sons, put a lot of blame on the Industrial Revolution. Dads’ off to the office or factory.
Given I was real lucky, my dad drove a truck took me to work with him sometimes, even to Bars & Poolhalls and he took me fishing. We hung out together sometimes when I was young.
So what Bly went onto say is that most men in this country cannot grieve, cannot experiences grief! Good Grief Charlie Brown!
What do you think? Is this a major hang up with American Men & Boys. By the way the on the other side is a nice expensive Bird Pint for your wall suitable for framing. I love his name Trogon Ambiguus, must be a Latin bird. Also Sony has a parakeet who refuses to talk but sings a lot, so he earns his keep. His name is Patti-Patti-Pattii. I was going to do a drawing from you on the page of this letter which is really drawing paper.
Now the crux of the matter as Bly sees it and as my father saw it and Spiritual God-Father Mr. A. Green the full blooded Cherokee tattoo artist who lived in the apt next door to us for my first 13 yrs.
The hear ♥ of the matter has to do with the “Warrior” Men don’t know the “Warrior” in themselves. This “Warrior” is not the one that goes to war. No this warrior is the one who goes through life with a quite goal and sees it through, “Come hell or high Water” to use an apt phrase.
So I was a lucky kid, and later got to be a lucky father to boot! Spent some choice yrs & choice time with you in the 70’s , 80’s and now through the 90’s

Well Bush is trying to cook up a little war in the Mid-east. Bad business I say and I ‘m no friend of Hussein of any Arab. What ever happened to Diplomacy! Gentlemen’s Agreements and all that not. Make life not grief!
There is grief a many.
Love ya Pete,
P.S. doing better financially, may even have some money soon? Thax to the Japanese.
In modern mechanized warfare there are no warriors
No chance to be warriors
Just little human boys in different uniforms
Off to slaughter
That is not the direction for me
Rare to travels
Our race is to the Macro-Micro Cosmos
Our race is not up-down
We’re here to stay
